Reba McEntire was dealt a difficult hand when she was forced to dissolve her 26-year marriage.
Fortunately, the singer has recovered and is now dating another man.
She is also commemorating other significant life events, such as her beloved son’s marriage!
Many people were surprised when Reba McEntire dissolved her 26-year marriage to Producer Narvel Blackstock. Shelby Blackstock is the couple’s only child.
While the pair did not reveal the details of their divorce, McEntire did reveal that it was not her decision to split.
She didn’t want to quit her marriage, but she also didn’t want to be the reason her husband was unhappy in a marriage he didn’t want to continue.
The singer has recovered from her divorce and is now famously dating actor Rex Linn, with whom she co-stars in the show ‘Big Sky.’
Shelby Blackstock, her son, is a former racing car driver who had been dating Marissa Branch for a time before proposing.
In January 2021, he proposed to her on the Spaceship Earth at Disney’s Epcot theme park, where the couple originally confessed their love for one another.
Following the same theme, the pair tied the wedding at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The pair exchanged vows in front of pyrotechnics and the iconic Disney World architecture, making the ceremony look like something out of a fairy tale.
Reba and her new beau Rex attended the celebrations. Branch, who is also an influencer, shared how special the wedding venue was for them.
‘My mum worked there when she was younger, supervising the Small World ride,’ she explained. It was my grandmother’s favorite.
She died in 2006, when I was in middle school, at the age of 57. She was my rock, and her death hit me hard.’
Branch made a point of honoring her late grandmother throughout the ceremony. The flower girls entered to ‘It’s a Small World,’ which brought her mother to tears.
Keeping with the fairytale motif, the bride walked out to ‘Tale as Old as Time’ from ‘Beauty and the Beast.’
While there were hiccups during the preparation process, she never lost respect for her mother-in-law.
Reba wrote a message for her mother-in-birthday, law’s describing her as ‘kind, gorgeous, powerful, bright, supportive, and genuinely fabulous.’
When McEntire danced with her son to her 2005 song ‘You’re Gonna Be (Always Loved by Me),’fans and guests at the wedding were moved to tears.
The song is extremely special since it is about a mother’s love for her kid and is quite nice!
