Reba McEntire, 65, Looks Half Her Age in a Red T-Shirt as She Gushes over Charity Mission
Country musician Reba McEntire recently shared a new photo of herself on social media with her fans. In the image, the star appeared to be stuck in time as she looked quite ageless.
On Wednesday, December 16, 2020, Reba McEntire took to Instagram to share a photo where she was seen smiling while looking straight at the camera. In it, she didn’t look like someone who was closer to 70.
The star appeared wearing a red t-shirt that promoted the St. Jude Charity Mission. She shared in the caption of the post how the mission helped families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer.

The country musician revealed in the Instagram post that the mission never charges families for travel expenses, treatment bills, food, or housing. The t-shirt was written with the slogan:
“We won’t stop.”
McEntire explained the slogan sharing how the mission had no plans to stop their work until no other child dies from cancer. She then included a link to the site and urged her fans to buy the t-shirt in support.
As most of her fans know, the singer was married to Narvel Blackstock, the father of Brandon Blackstock. This year, Brandon’s wife, Kelly Clarkson revealed they were sadly getting a divorce.
Even though Brandon is McEntire’s stepson, she also has a close relationship with Clarkson. According to a “Closer Weekly” source, the legendary country singer and Clarkson have remained close amid the divorce.
The insider claimed the stepmother wasn’t letting the couple’s separation come between her bond with “The Kelly Clarkson Show” host. The pair were said to have a bond that “cannot be broken.”
At the same time, McEntire also has a relationship with Brandon and she loved him and Clarkson like her own children. She’s said to be refusing to pick sides in the divorce and is “torn” by it.
In a 2010 interview with “The Boot,” Reba McEntire revealed she considered the trio as her own children.
McEntire has six children that she calls her own although only one of them is biological. In 1976, she married her first husband, Charlie Battles, and she became a mother to his two sons, Lance and Coty Battles.
The couple separated in 1987 but the “Fancy” singer still maintains a relationship with the boys. She and Narvel tied the knot a few years after that in 1989 and she, again, became a stepmother.
Narvel was already a father to Brandon, Shawna, and Chassidy when he married McEntire. The music producer had three children from his previous marriage to ex-wife Elisa Gayle Ritter.
In a 2010 interview with “The Boot,” the country singer revealed she considered the trio as her own children. Narvel gave McEntire her only biological child, a son named Shelby who was welcomed in 1990.
The singer now has a new man in her life in the form of actor Rex Linn. The star first revealed and confirmed her relationship with him in October 2020, on her “Living & Learning” podcast.
