Their romantic connection first blossomed after a decades-long friendship, with the challenge of physical distance during quarantine back in 2020. Despite the separation, they found joy in virtual “coffee camp” dates, and Rex creatively bridged the gap by sending Reba delectable treats.

On her podcast, Living & Learning with Reba McEntire, Reba gleefully shared some of her favorite delights from Rex, ranging from lobster rolls to mouthwatering pecan pie.
