Garrett Hedlund Reveals How Tim McGraw Became the Godfather to His Son with Emma Roberts {WATCH}

Garrett Hedlund appeared on the Kelly Clarkson show where he revealed that Tim McGraw is the godfather to his and Emma Roberts’ son.

Garrett said, “He’s somebody that I admire and respect, not only as an amazing father and an amazing husband, amazing musician and amazing actor. I’ve known him for a long time.”

“We laugh about it because it’s probably been over 17 years since we did Friday Night Lights together, we played father and son. So I got to first experience him as a father — in that film, somewhat more of an abusive one — but then we did Country Strong together, and we’ve remained such close friends,” he added. “And I’ve seen his children, his daughters, from the time they were 1, 3 and 5.”
