Garth Brooks Sent Trisha Yearwood 55 Roses for Her 55th Birthday
Trisha Yearwood celebrates a milestone birthday in 2019 — so, of course, her husband, country star Garth Brooks, stepped it up for her special day. On Thursday (Sept. 19), her 55th birthday, Yearwood shared a photo of a stunning floral arrangement that was a birthday gift from Brooks.
Beautiful greenery surrounds Yearwood's large bouquet of pink- and orange-tinted roses, which all sits in a stone vase. According to the singer, her husband gave her 55 roses in total — one for each year of her life.
"I'm so lucky to celebrate with the love of my life!" Yearwood writes on Instagram.
Brooks and Yearwood will celebrate their 14th wedding anniversary in 2019; they've been married since December of 2005, after Brooks proposed to Yearwood onstage at a California show in May of that year. Prior to pursuing a romantic relationship, the two artists were longtime friends: They met as aspiring artists and first sang together on "Like We Never Had a Broken Heart," from Yearwood's self-titled debut album, which was released in 1991.
Brooks and Yearwood were both previously married, him to Sandy Mahl, whom he divorced in 2000, and her to Chris Latham, whom she divorced in 1991, and Mavericks member Robert Reynolds, whom she divorced in 1999. "[Songwriter] Kent Blazy introduced me to Ms. Yearwood ... When she left, he goes, 'What did you think?' I said, 'Well, it's strange, because I felt that feeling like when you just meet your wife, but I've been married for 13 months,'" Brooks recalled during an appearance on Ellen.
"This was somebody I always enjoyed being around, and we had a lot more in common than I ever dreamed we did," Brooks explains. "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."
Brooks and Yearwood do not have any children together; however, she maintains a close relationship with Brooks and ex-wife Sandy's three daughters.
