Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s marriage is one of the few celebrity marriage success stories. So, when rumors started about a possible divorce in their future, Hill quickly made it known that they had no plans of divorce and are happily married.
“Rumors seem to be running like crazy right now for some reason. It’s perplexing,” Hill said. “I don’t know why ‘happy’ can’t be a story.”
The country music superstars have been married for seventeen years and have three daughters, Gracie, 16, Maggie, 15, and Audrey, 12, together. During an interview with ET’s Nancy O’Dell, Hill claims she has no idea where the rumors even originated.
“We don’t even know where this stuff came from. We’ve been in the tabloids for years, ever since we’ve been together,” Hill said. “Our children know the truth. … The people that you’re around, they know the truth. … It’s unfortunate. I don’t know why happiness doesn’t sell. I don’t know why tragedy sells and untruth sells, but again, you just have to stop buying the stuff.”
In an interview with PEOPLE, McGraw also defended his marriage. “We’ve been married 17 years, and since the first week we were married those things were out,” McGraw said. “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.”
Hill and McGraw are just finished up a residency at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas with their “Soul2Soul” show on Friday night.
Two great nights at @VenetianVegas this weekend… see you back in January!!
