Faith Hill and Tim McGraw know a thing or two about celebrating milestones. This year alone, they marked their 21st wedding anniversary, and they both also turned 50 years old.
But even though they’ve become pros at commemorating big moments, it seems their latest celebration has them wishing they could turn back time.
You see, the country music power couple, who share three beautiful daughters, recently celebrated their youngest girl Audrey’s sweet 16th birthday.
Already, Tim and Faith have sent their middle child, Maggie, and eldest daughter Gracie off to college. So, there’s no doubt that Audrey’s birthday has left a sense of nostalgia and reality in her famous parents’ minds. After all, they only have two years left before their baby is officially an adult.
“This angel of ours is 16 years old today. It is hard to fathom how quickly the years pass,” Faith wrote on Instagram on Dec. 6, alongside a mini-album featuring baby photos of Audrey.

“It is an absolute joy to be the mother of this child,” she added. “The most forgiving, honest, joyful human being. And those hugs. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Happy Birthday, Audrey!!!!!!!!! I love you, mom.”
And despite the time flying by, Tim, too, couldn’t be happier to see how much the lovebirds’ teenager has grown.
“Happy sweet 16 to our baby girl!! You lit up our world 16 years ago,” he captioned on his own Instagram featuring another baby picture of Audrey. “Your mom, your sisters and I love you so much and are very proud of the sweet and kind young lady you’ve become. Have a fantastic day sweetie.”
Even though Faith and Tim likely wish they could slow things down a little bit with their children’s growth, the future couldn’t seem brighter for them as a duo. In fact, the two, who recently released their first-ever collaborative album, “The Rest of Our Life,” are collectively up for Tour, Story and Duet of the Year at this year’s Rare Country Awards. Faith has also earned an additional nomination for Female Artist of the Year. It’s up to you to decide the winners. Vote now through Dec. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
