Now we know why Faith Hill wasn’t celebrating with hubby Tim McGraw in Vegas this week at the Billboard Music Awards, where he collected five trophies and she was conspiscuously MIA.
Seems she was busy in Nashville working on a little trophy of her own.
The too-cute country couple welcomed a brand new daughter Thursday.
About the only thing we know is the girl’s name, Audrey Caroline McGraw, and her time of birth, 4:39 p.m.
No other details were immediately divulged, but the couple’s publicist, Paul Freundlich, says, “Mother and daughter are resting comfortably at an undisclosed Tennessee hospital and are expected to return home as soon as possible.”
It’s the third child–and third daughter–for the twosome, who have been married since 1996. Little Audrey joins four-year-old Grace and three-year-old Maggie in the McGraw-Hill brood.
In a brief statement, both parents did the requisite ooh-ing and ahh-ing. “To be blessed with a beautiful healthy baby girl–what a way to kick off the holiday season for us,” says the 34-year-old Hill. “Maggie, Gracie, Tim and I couldn’t be happier.”
Says McGraw: “I couldn’t be happier.”
The singer, who’s also 34, adds, “I’m still king of the house and my girls will always keep me in line.”
As if their fame, wealth, critical success, impossible good looks, perfect marriage and photogenic kids weren’t sickening enough, the couple are also celebrating McGraw’s Billboard bonanza. He took home five awards Tuesday night: Country Artist of the Year, Male Country Artist, Country Album (for his Greatest Hits), Country Albums Artist and Country Single Artist.
