Meet 'Pioneer Woman' Ree Drummond's Grown-up Daughter Who Inherited All Her Mother's Beauty

Pretty Alex Drummond is finishing college in May, and her senior photos show she’s a beauty just like her “Pioneer Woman’ mom, Ree.


Writer, photographer, and mother of four Ree Drummond excitedly shared photos of her eldest child, Alex, who is a senior at Texas A&M University.


She captioned her post with,

“Alex will graduate from college in May, and one of her best friends took her senior pics for her. I love all the photos (you can swipe to see others) because they capture my oldest child so perfectly.”

Dressed in a white eyelet dress, Alex looked relaxed as she smiled for the camera, her sunny personality shining through in every photo.

Ree and husband Ladd have a wholesome family life they share with their four children Alex, 21, Paige, 19, Bryce, 16, and Todd, 15. Together they live in the same house where Ladd grew up.


Ladd is a fourth-generation rancher from Oklahoma, and his clan is one of the top ranching families in America. His day usually starts at 5 a.m. running cattle over roughly 100,000 acres. He shares,

“You gotta try to get everything done before it gets too hot.”


By nine a.m. the cowboys are ready for breakfast skillfully prepared by Ree, whose empire as “The Pioneer Woman” includes cookbooks, a TV show, a restaurant, and store, as well as line of home goods. She says,

“I’m not a trained chef, and so I have a level of accessibility. I’m not going to show anything that is beyond their skill. And also, I use a lot of ingredients that are pretty easy to get.”


As a hands-on mom, she found it somewhat difficult letting her homeschooled children leave the nest. Daughter Paige was next to go off to college, and Ree shared her heartache saying,

“Red nose, trembling chin, tight throat, aching heart. Leaving your child at college is no picnic. I’ve done it once before and thought maybe this time would be a little easier. I think it’s a little harder. But through all the tears, I see this clearly: What a joy it is to usher her into the next stage of her life.”


Ree turned fifty this year and her husband of 22 years, sweetly threw her a surprise party at one of their restaurants. Ladd planned all of it, ignoring his wife’s anxiety about her milestone birthday and her wishes to keep it simple and let the day pass without a fuss. She appreciated the effort as she shared a post with the caption,

“I had been telling my husband that I really wanted the whole birthday thing to blow over this year and just pretend it never happened. I’m so glad the little booger decided not to listen to me.”
