Seeing famous couples who value their marriage and families is nice. Time McGraw and Faith Hill, who appear in “1883,” are a stunning marriage, but like other families, they have experienced tragedies and difficulties.
They disclosed that Gracie, their 25-year-old daughter, had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in 2022. (PCOS).
They received a lot of love and support at the time, and Gracie recently used social media to give everyone an update on her health..
“I just wanted to share really quick that I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). To get the correct diagnosis you would need 2 out of the 5 characteristics of PCOS and I had 3.”
In the post, Gracie continued, “During my appointment with my endocrinologist I realized that may had been a factor in my issues with weight, so we decided to try a medicine to regulate my body more normally and create the tools to continue to keep my body and myself healthy as I get older.”
Gracie did not hide any part of her condition, explaining, “I’m learning to navigate the new blemishes but I don’t think that I would have ever allowed myself to go to a doctors appointment like this unless I had taken the correct steps toward my mental health, because as much as physical health is important, mental goes hand and hand.”
The young McGraw has been applauded by fans online who appreciate her transparency about her condition.
PCOS is a very common hormone problem for women of childbearing age which can cause a woman to not ovulate and have high levels of androgens. On their ovaries, some people also have little cysts. In addition to irregular menstrual cycles, PCOS can also lead to excessive hair growth, acne, infertility, and weight gain.
”Sending love to those who are struggling with something similar or literally anything at all. Mental health is freaking hard !! It’s a long road but we can get through it,” the star added.
“I share my experience to hope my situation has reached someone who can relate. P.S The medicine I’m taking has given me a body I haven’t had in years (maybe ever?). It’s weird to navigate but I’m finding ways to love her.”
Fans reacted quickly to the young woman’s candor, applauding her and using adjectives like “brave” and “beautiful” to describe her.
Sadly, Gracie has gone through a lot with relation to her physique. She was made fun of in 2021 for her shape, but she retaliated by dancing and embracing the body shamer!
“Today I looked in the mirror and was feeling fine about myself. I ended up going to a store and picked up a the largest size they had in a dress, which was an 8 btw (bs) I wear a 10, and the lady who was working in the store literally took the dress out of my hands and said ‘that’s not going to fit you’,” she wrote in the beginning of the caption. “Well first, duh because idk it’s not my size??, and second the fact that she literally took the dress out of my hands and verbally told me that I was too big for it really made me upset,” she wrote on Instagram and continued:
“It didn’t only make me upset that she was basically calling me too big but it mostly made me upset because so many stores do this, they only put smaller sizes out and then when you try on their bigger sizes they don’t even go above your knees,” she continued. “I’ve been wearing the same jean size for two or three years now and every time I try a new brand OR EVEN THE SAME ONE I PREVIOUSLY OWN, the size 30 is somehow smaller even if my own body has stayed the same size. It’s not just pants, it’s literally EVERYTHING.”
Naturally, Tim McGraw and the whole of Gracie’s family are behind her. In 2020, Tim revealed his love for his daughter and expressed it in the following way:
“Gracie, our oldest daughter, is an actress in L.A., and she makes me proud every day because she’s such a strong, independent young lady who speaks her mind.”
It’s clear that Gracie has not let her condition affect her genuinity. Let us know what you think about her bravery and transparency in the comments!
