Amy Grant and Vince Gill cozy up on the February cover of Good Housekeeping. Gill, 52, a country music icon, and Grant, 49, a pop and Christian singer, are about to celebrate 10 years of marriage. And while their union seems picture-perfect now, the musical couple have navigated through divorce, a media firestorm and blending their families.
On bringing their 4 kids together as a family: "It was a long haul to feel like a family again," says Grant (Gill's daughter, Jenny, was 17; and Grant's three children, Matthew, Millie, and Sarah, ranged in age from 12 to 7 when they first got together). "The parents have made a choice, but none of the kids have made the choice. And wherever it's going to wind up, you're not going to get there quickly. You just have to give people their space. There have been a lot of hands-down, pivotal turning points, with a lot of words and tons of emotions."
On the birth of their 8-year-old daughter Corrina: "[Corrina's birth was] a great blessing for us," says Gill. "All of a sudden, we all had something in common. And we didn't know it at the time, but it really provided a sense of glue."
