This country queen explains how it feels to be a step-parent to one of the biggest country superstars to ever have hit the stage – and how it’s impacted her life.

Married to iconic country music superstar, Garth Brooks, for nearly 12 years now, Trisha Yearwood has definitely found her place in the family and that includes his treasured daughters. Now that the kids are grown and have started exciting new chapters of their lives, things are likely much different than when the pair first married, but it’s all been an amazing ride, says Yearwood.

“I have to say that now as these girls have grown—they’re adults now on their own—it’s been a part of my life that I would have never would have ever known to dream about and it’s been so rewarding to get to be a part of this family,” She gushed to People Magazine.

Beyond being a ‘Bonus Mom’ to his children, Yearwood says that her legendary musician husband is “really perfect” and while many ask if they ever get tired of one another from traveling and performing together frequently – there’s not a problem with ‘too much’ togetherness.

Back in 2012, Yearwood spoke with Marlo Thomas about life as a ‘Bonus Mom’ and how Brooks had given her the best possible advice when she was first trying to navigate life as the stepmother to his three daughters.
