She may have tons of hit songs, awards and fans around the world, but there’s nothing Amy Grant loves more than her kids. The musician is the proud mom to five children: three from her marriage to Gary Chapman, one with current husband Vince Gill and one she “inherited” upon tying the knot with the “When I Call Your Name” crooner.
With Gary, the “Baby Baby” singer welcomed son Matthew in 1987, daughter Gloria — who also goes by Millie — in 1989, and daughter Sarah in 1992. The two were married from 1982 until 1999. After marrying Vince — who was already dad to daughter Jennifer with ex-wife Janis Oliver — in 2000, Amy welcomed their daughter, Corrina, in 2001.
“When my daughter Sarah married on November 9, she came down the aisle flanked by her father, Gary Chapman, on one side and her stepfather, Vince Gill, on the other,” Amy told Closer in 2019, saying she feels extremely lucky that everyone gets along these days. “All I could think was, Phew, life looks all kinds of ways!”
That’s not the only wedding the Queen of Christian Pop has been to in 2019, as Millie said “I do” that April. On top of that, Amy and Vince’s youngest, Corrina, is off to college, so they’ve been getting used to an empty nest.
“I’m sleeping like a teenager!” Amy gushed to Closer, revealing what she plans to do now that kiddos are all grown up. “I want to experience life and not have a work agenda. I’m going to take my Airstream Bambi trailer coast to coast, meet people and just celebrate being alive!”
If there’s one thing Amy hopes her children take from having her as a mom, it’s the important life lesson she has learned.
“We’re in such a polarized time,” she told Closer. “Say these phrases as often as possible and you’ll change the world around you: ‘How can I help you? I’m proud of you. I love you. Thank you.’ And the one word, ‘we,’ even if it’s someone you don’t [agree] with or are furious with. All of life is the work of reconciliation. That’s the journey of faith: the reconciliation between God and man. Everything else is just a lot of bluster.”
In July 2022, Amy’s family rallied around her after she suffered injuries from a bike accident in Nashville. Corrina joined her dad on stage at the Ryman Auditorium that week to perform a rendition of “When My Amy Prays” dedicated to her mom.
“We’re going to do this song that I wrote for my wife, Amy,” Vince told the concert crowd. “We haven’t been doing it much, but because of her accident and everything she’s been going through we’ve been thinking a lot about her. I thought how sweet it would be for her youngest to sing the song I wrote for her.”
