Country singer Reba McEntire has found love in the age of COVID-19!
On her podcast “Living & Learning with Reba McEntire,” the 65-year-old revealed her new relationship with “Young Sheldon” actor Rex Linn, 63. She shared, “Yeah, yeah, I am [dating]. A very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn. And we’ve been talking during the pandemic."
In January, Rex posted a pic from a dinner with Reba, writing on Instagram, “Had a fantastic dinner with this Oklahoma girl. Tater Tots and Ketchup included.”
Reba and Rex’s dinner date happened just before the pandemic. She dished, “And then February on, it was the COVID pandemic and we were talking, texting, FaceTime. And that’s a really good way to get to know people.”
“It’s good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what’s going on. Discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor, me being an actress,” Reba went on. “And he’s very into my music. I’m very into his career. It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart, and is interested in me, too."
Linn is known for his roles on “Better Call Saul,” “Lethal Weapon,” “Nashville,” and “CSI: Miami.”
Last year, Reba called it quits with Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo. She told Us Weekly, “Skeeter and I broke up in May, so, unfortunately, we will not be spending that time together. We still talk and we’re friends, but just decided to go our separate ways.”
