Gracie is not afraid to show off her natural body. Her father says he is proud of her.
Tim McGraw wears many hats, from singer and songwriter to producer and actor. He has been married to fellow country music star Faith Hill since 1996 and they have three daughters. McGraw and Hill have many awards and accolades to their names, but they are most proud of their girls.
Maggie McGraw, born August 18, 1998, is the second daughter to graduate from Stanford University in 2021 with a master’s degree. And the baby of the family is Audrey McGraw. Born on December 6, 2001, she graduated from high school in June 2020. Since then, she has modeled for a fashion campaign and appeared in the music video for her dad’s song “7500 OBO”.
Gracie McGraw is the oldest of the brood. Born on May 5, 1997, the young lady graduated from NIU. Following in her father’s footsteps, she moved away on her own to pursue her acting career and has since appeared in Tyler Perry’s If Love Is Wrong. Posting about her daughter, the “Friday Night Lights” star said:
“Gracie, our oldest daughter, is an actress in Los Angeles and she makes me proud every day because she is such a strong, independent young lady who speaks her mind.
McGraw, who is still in awe of how quickly his daughters have grown, is inspired by how each of them is branching out and forging their own path. The joy of any parent raising children in show business is to see them grow into normal adults who respect themselves and others.
Describing his eldest daughter, the “Flicka” actor said Gracie is sweet, talented and has a “crazy big heart” in an Instagram post marking her 25th birthday. He encouraged her to continue chasing her dreams and to be an inspiration.
The young singer has become something of an advocate for body positivity, showing others how to love and evolve in the way they view their bodies.
Friends and fans of the star joined Gracie in wishing her a happy birthday, although she posted her own photos and videos of herself celebrating with friends in Mexico. The talented young lady seems to be entering the entertainment industry with the support of her parents.
McGraw invited Gracie to sing with him on stage during one of his shows back in 2015. The father/daughter duo sang “Here Tonight,” one of the titles on his “Damn Country Music” album. Speaking about how he and his wife support their daughter’s aspirations, he said:
“The more Faith and I talked about it and really started digging into it [we realized] how much it made sense for us and our family and our beliefs, and how we want our daughters to be represented.”
The couple tried not to force their children to do anything, but to let them find their own way. McGraw, who also posted a duet with his daughter singing the Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb ballad on YouTube, is clearly impressed by Grace’s strong, melodic voice.
Criticized for her body
Gracie likes to document her life on Instagram, but the ones that show off her natural body tend to get the most attention. One netizen who found her photo too revealing said she didn’t get the point of “showing her body to thousands of people”.
There seems to be so much that makes young women feel bad for not achieving an unattainable goal.
Others went so far as to draw an unfair comparison between Gracie and her mother, who at 55 and three children “looks like a model”. Commenting below the candid snaps of her body, one even called the young lady “extremely unhealthy”.
But the oldest McGraw girl is comfortable in her own skin, even with stretch marks, rolls and cellulite. She captioned a mirror selfie in a two-piece swimsuit with a Norah Ephron quote, adding:
“I’ve never been comfortable in a bikini, but I got this one for $10 and I feel great.”
She seems to accept the negative comments and has plenty of fans who think she’s beautiful and relate to her authenticity. They encourage her to keep posting and ignore the haters and trolls.
Tim McGraw’s daughter defends her body
The young singer has become something of an advocate for body positivity, showing others how to love and evolve in the way they view their bodies. Speaking about how she learned to accept the parts of her body she wanted to change, Gracie said:
“I was always considered ‘unhealthy’ because I was a bit overweight, which really made me question myself more and more.” In reality I was actually a healthy person, but what was really unhealthy about me was the way I thought.
Gracie also shared her observation that clothing stores are not inclusive. Many fail to wear clothing sizes for fuller-figured women. Some employees body shame women who wear larger sizes. This discourages some from buying and undermines their confidence.
And most stores follow the trend of clothing smaller than before, so even if you don’t gain weight, you have to go up a size or two. This brand
