Although divorce rumors have been ongoing for country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw since they married in 1996, they stand by their relationship and confirm that it has never been stronger.
E! reports that Faith stood up for herself during an interview Friday at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. She said, “[Rumors] seem to be running like crazy right now for some reason. It’s perplexing. I don’t know why ‘happy’ can’t be a story.”
Tim has also opened up to PEOPLE, saying, “We’ve been married 17 years, and since the first week we were married those things were out. We don’t even think about it. The only time we ever think about it is [when we] worry about the kids. But they’ve been around it, too, so they laugh it off.”
It seems like after 17 years of marriage, their biggest concern is raising their 3 daughters Gracie (16), Maggie (15), and Audrey (12), and not letting all the stories affect their family.
