'Pioneer Woman' Ree Drummond Is a Loving Mother of 4 Kids Who Are All Grown up - Meet Them All

50-year-old Ree Drummond, known for her pen name as a blogger “The Pioneer Woman,” which is also the title of her cooking show at The Food Network has four beautiful grown children, two sons, and two daughters.


The food writer and television personality has grown a strong following both with her website and most recently with her TV show, and her success as a lifestyle guru has made her fans become more interested in her family.

Drummond, born Anne Marie Smith, married husband Ladd in 1996, and their relationship resulted in the birth of four children: daughters Alex, 21, and Paige, 10, and sons Bryce, 16, and Todd, 14. Here’s what’s to know about them.



Ree’s two oldest children have already left for college, with Alex attending the Texas A&M, and Paige attending the University of Arkansas.

While she has been open about how hard it is for her not to have her daughters at home anymore, she has focused on the positive aspect of getting to spend more quality time with the boys.



As natural as it is for the children to grow up and move out to follow their own path, it is a particularly difficult thing to do for Ree, since she homeschooled all of her children.

Ree has cited the fact of how far they live from any schools, as the family home, a working farm in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, where her TV show is set, as the only reason behind her decision to educate her children on her own.



An Oklahoma native, Ree’s life plans to move to Chicago after graduating for college changed drastically when she met her future husband, whose family owned a big ranch, and the two decided to build a life together by the countryside.

Although she struggled for some time to come to terms with the direction her life took after her marriage to Ladd, which coincided with her parents' divorce, it all proved to be for the best, as she ended up building a $50 million empire.



The way she managed to remain a stay-at-home mother while getting busy capitalizing on her life in the ranch and personal experiences to turn herself into a profitable brand shaped her home dynamics and her way to bond with her children.

One of her ways to be involved with them as much as her busy schedule allows her is to have the children cook with her.



Daughters Alex and Paige starting college and leaving the nest behind has served as a sort of wake up call for Ree, who became much more conscious about Bryce and Todd quickly approaching adulthood.

Bryce is a talented football player, and he has reportedly shown interest in pursuing higher education like his older sisters.


Sending a third child to college will be a hard thing to cope with for Ree, considering what she wrote on Instagram when Paige got started at the University of Arkansas.

“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,” she captioned her August 9, 2018 post.



However, Paige made herself at home in no time in her college dorm, and she shared a picture of how she decorated it, showing amazing taste, with Southern Living seeing some influence of Joanna Gaines’ signature style.

Paige certainly seems to be a fan of the former “Fixer Upper” star, as a picture she shared at Gaines’ Magnolia Market in Waco, Texas, proves.

As of Alex, she has been taking her classes very seriously, and in 2018 her student achievements were recognized by her college in a ceremony attended by her proud parents.



Soon after starting college, Alex started dating a guy named Mauricio, and on March 29, she took to her Instagram account to share that the two celebrated her fourth anniversary as a couple.

While Ree has nothing against her oldest daughter’s beau and gave her blessings to the couple since the start by sharing a picture of the two early on, she admitted her struggles with using the word “boyfriend” in relation to her daughters.
