Faith Hill 'Became This Animal' When It Came to Her Daughters

Watch out for mama bear Faith Hill!

The country singer and mother of three daughters sat down with Ellen DeGeneres alongside husband Tim McGraw this week to talk about the couple's upcoming "Soul2Soul" tour, family life—and potential boyfriends.

Bottom line: Suitors for their teen daughters better watch out.

Getting candid on "The Ellen Show," McGraw admitted that he likes to play the intimidation game.

"There was a winter formal or something, and there were a bunch of kids in the limousine," McGraw explained, "and I had the sledgehammer over my shoulder."

Yes, you read that correctly: a sledgehammer.

"You don't want to be mean or anything," he continued, "but when someone is taking your daughter somewhere, you want to induce a healthy amount of respect. And fear."

Hill agreed, but she said it took her a minute to come around to that point of view.

"I was a little soft on it," she admitted, "but then after—when you go through it for the first time, those of you who have daughters out there—all of a sudden I became this animal."

"Like, do it," she said, gesturing toward her husband. "Take the sledgehammer."

"Audrey, get out of there. Run," quipped DeGeneres about their youngest daughter.

The conversation wasn't all about their children, ages 19, 18 and 15.

McGraw and Hill got into intimate territory when they played "Never Have I Ever" on the talk show.

When it comes to texting nude selfies, the couple both answered, "I have never."

And as far as "waxing my partner," Hill laughed, saying, "I have never, but I'm gonna try!"

The threat of pain seems to be a running theme here.
