During an interview on TODAY Monday, Country star and actor Tim McGraw gushed about the three daughters he shares with wife Faith Hill: Gracie, 22, Maggie, 21, and 17-year-old Audrey. The singer told Hoda Kotb “We’re so proud of our daughters because the world that they grew up in, it can easily make the kids turn out differently,” adding that they are “so grounded, they’re so humble. They have such big hearts, and they work hard at the things that they want to accomplish.”

The 52-year-old finished by telling Kotb, “We couldn’t ask for better kids. They’re smarter than us in so many ways.”
