Martina McBride‘s family is her whole world. She and her husband, John, share three daughters. Their names are Delaney, Emma, and Ava.
During the height of her career, Martina chose to step back a bit so she could focus on raising her girls. The two eldest, Delaney and Emma, appeared in her music video for “Blessed,” giving it a personal touch.
John also appeared in the video. Their appearances made the “Blessed” music video all the more meaningful.
Ava was born four years after “Blessed” was released. As the years passed, Martina would keep her fans updated by sharing photos of her family on social media.
Her followers got the chance to watch her girls grow up through the photos she shared.
Jump to today, and Delaney is 28, Emma is 25, and Ava is 18. In fact, Ava just celebrated her 18th birthday on Tuesday (June 20).
Martina marked the milestone by posting a bunch of photos of Ava through the years. Many are never-before-seen throwbacks from when Ava was a young child. A few of the photos Martina shared show Ava in more recent times.
The proud mama wrote:
“My youngest baby. Happy 18th Birthday Ava. I am so very proud of you. You are a true original. Maybe the funniest person I know. So smart. Kind. Fun. And complicated in the most beautiful way. We are all learning from you. I love you.”
Martina’s fans left tons of birthday wishes and loving messages for Ava in the comments. See her post below about her baby girl’s milestone birthday. It’s hard to believe she’s already 18!
We hope Ava had the happiest of birthdays, and wish her the best in her future.
