Reba McEntire is reportedly engaged as she allegedly accepted beau's proposal 3 years after divorce
The 63-year-old singer is over the moon at finding herself engaged again after ending her 25-year-marriage.
Barely three years since ending her 25-year-marriage to Narvel Blackstock, Reba McEntire is now reportedly engaged.
News of the legendary country singer’s engagement was first revealed by Hollywood Life and echoed by Vegan Everydays’ website. In the latter’s account, the 63-year-old singer reportedly agreed to marry her boyfriend of less than one year, Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo, 67, just days prior to her hosting stint at the Academy of Country Music awards.
According to sources, the retired geologist and widower surprised Reba by telling her he couldn’t imagine life without her and simply popped the question. As to Reba’s reaction, the source said,
“You would’ve knocked Reba over with a feather! However as soon as she acquired her bearing, she gave Skeeter an enthusiastic ‘Sure!’”
This may also explain why Reba was beaming at the ACM awards’ red carpet where she dazzled guests with several costume changes.
The couple reportedly met through a mutual friend at a time when Reba seemed to have no clue of how it was to date again at her age. She divorced her long time husband/manager three years ago after she discovered he was cheating on her with her close friend, Laura Putty Stroud.
But fate apparently still has brighter plans for Reba. Meeting Skeeter and falling in love with him was a pleasant surprise to the KFC spokeswoman who never thought she’d find love again in her 60’s. The singer is reportedly glowing and excited about their future together.
Meanwhile, Skeeter was equally happy about being with Reba as he told ET when he escorted her to the Grammys. When asked how he was dealing with the limelight, he responded,
“I’m doing nice! I’m simply following her and having fun with the evening along with her.”
At it would seem Reba’s fiancé will be following her and having fun with her the rest of their lives as they’ve committed to spending it together.
