Culinary expert Ree Drummond opened up about her bonus kid, Jamar, in her latest book, "Frontier Follies," where she mentioned that she once sorted a rift between her birth son and her foster son. 

American blogger Ree Drummond has quite some talent, which she has been showing off for a while, but what fans did not know was that the media personality welcomed a foster son into her family. 

In an excerpt from her latest book, "Frontier Follies," Ree opened up about her family and how her foster son, Jamar, became part of them. She noted that initially, she chose to keep him away from public scrutiny, partly due to the foster home's policy.
