Country music star Trisha Yearwood recently revealed the parenting advice she got from husband Garth Brooks that helped her to become close with Brooks’ three daughters.
Brooks and Yearwood married in 2005. Brooks had three daughters — Taylor, August and Allie, from his earlier marriage with Sandy Mahl.
Speaking to People, Yearwood said when she got married Brooks gave her advice to figure out how she would fit into the lives of his three daughters.
“I had a dog before I married Garth but no children of my own. I never even really babysat!” Yearwood says. “So I didn’t know what to do with three young girls. Garth was such a wonderful mentor to me as to how to be a parent, and he told me, ‘You’ll find your way with each of them. Don’t try to be their best friend, and don’t try to be their mom.'”
“They let me learn my way and allowed me to be that third parent in their lives,” she says. “They were a gift that I didn’t know I needed. I didn’t know how much children brought into your life until I got a chance to be a part of their lives.”
