Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are celebrating 25 years of marriage and to mark the occasion, Tim has shared the sweet story about how he proposed. (You might wanna keep the tissues handy for this one!)
“We had dated for a while,” he says in a video posted to Instagram, featuring a series of pics of himself and Faith over the years.
“I actually asked her to marry me quite a few times but she kept saying no! She said, ‘I’m not going to get involved with another country singer. It’s just not going to work out.'”
Boy, was she wrong about that!
“We were somewhere playing this big outdoor festival and they had these trailer houses set up. I’m getting ready to go on stage and I had this, sort of, case that had this big mirror in it. She’s standing there and we’re talking and I said, ‘Look, let’s get married,” he continues, smiling as he recalls the moment.
“And she said, ‘You’re asking me to marry you at a country music festival in a trailer house?'” Tim adds, describing how he had to explain to her that he was in fact, being completely serious.
“And then they called me and I had to go to stage. I went to stage and did the show and then I came off the stage and went back into my dressing room and Faith wasn’t there.”
But she had still answered his big question.
“I looked at the mirror and in lipstick, it said ‘Yes. I’m gonna be your wife.’ And we still have that mirror. And it was the best day of my life, that’s for sure.”
Captioning the video, Tim writes, “25 years later and it’s still the best day of my life.”
Are you crying yet?
The couple married on October 6, 1996 and have three children together.
