Even though the couple has been married for 15 years, they do not have any children of their own. But, Yearwood has been a mother to her three stepchildren and she seems to be enjoying her role to the fullest. 

Who are Trisha Yearwood’s stepchildren?

Brooks was previously married to Sandy Mahl with whom he shares three daughters. The eldest Taylor Mayne Pearl was born in 1992, August Anna in 1994 and the youngest Allie Colleen Brooks was born in 1996.

Yearwood and Brooks have played their roles well as parents despite not having any children of their own. During his recent appearance on Kelly Clarkson’s talk show, Brooks said, “Trisha doesn’t have children, so they got married. They exchanged rings and said vows to each other.” He reportedly even emphasized to his girls that they need to take care of Trisha should something happen to him. “It was the youngest, Allie, that said, ‘We got your back, bra strap,’” he said. “That was the end of the conversation,” he added. 

Meanwhile, sharing her experience of being a stepmother to Brooks’ children, Yearwood told People in 2017, "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.”

Their mesmerizing love story

When Brooks and Yearwood met each other in the '80s, they were married to their respective former partners. They got romantically involved only in 2000s. Recollecting the time when he first met his future wife, Brooks said, “Kent Blazy introduced me and Ms Yearwood. And he goes, ‘I knew you were going to like her.’ And he said, ‘What do you think?’ And I said, ‘Well it’s strange, because I felt that feeling like when you've just met your wife. But I’ve been married for 13 months.”

Yearwood and Brooks connected years later when they were on a tour. Brooks expressed, “We’d known each other music-wise, but we got to see each other as people,” he told Ellen Degeneres. “And I gotta tell you, if you like her and don’t know her, you’ll love her. If you love her and don’t know her, you’ll worship her. She’s the real deal.”
