“Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond’s youngest son, Todd, has gotten a lot of love from the mother of four in recent posts.

Drummond’s latest post wasn’t for any special occasion, per se. Really, it seems like she just wanted to gush about her baby boy and post the sweetest photo of the two of them. But we’re not complaining, because it’s absolutely heartwarming to see.

The “Pioneer Woman” might be known for her cooking and baking, but she deserves credit for being an awesome mom and wife too. She talks about and hangs out with all of her kids all the time, inviting followers and fans to feel like part of the family too.

In her latest Todd-appreciation post, Drummond starts out by saying, “Todd! My youngest kid, my favorite high school quarterback, and basically one of my favorite people on earth. He’s a gift!”

She then dives into some random fun facts about the high school senior. “He’s very tall. He likes funny t-shirts, I get him three or four every Christmas. He’s got a cannon for an arm. 🏈He’s a lifelong Marvel fan. And he likes downtime…finally, a child who’s aligned with my extroverted introversion,” the “Pioneer Woman” wrote.

“Anyway, this post was stream-of-consciousness; just wanted to share a few things about this dude,” Drummond concluded.

Surprisingly, in just that one Instagram caption, we did learn several things about Todd Drummond. And not the embarrassing kinds of things most mothers would post about their kids (Love you, Mom!). But this isn’t the first shoutout Todd’s received from the “Pioneer Woman” in recent weeks.

‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Congratulates Todd on Senior Football Season

Earlier this month, “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond posted several photos of her youngest son, Todd, to celebrate the end of his senior football season. Like all his siblings, Todd attended Pawhuska High School in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, where the family lives.

Debbie Formby took some of the photos professionally. While others show Drummond bundled up and freezing (but still supporting Todd).

“This is a Todd Drummond appreciation post. His older brother was QB for three full years, so this was Todd’s first season in the starting spot. He got in there and worked…worked…and worked…and wound up throwing for 3,600+ yards and 50 touchdowns,” Drummond began in her post earlier.

“I’m not sharing that to brag, but instead to illustrate the heart this kid has for football, and the dedication he’s shown every single day (and especially Friday nights) this fall,” Drummond later continued. “I couldn’t be prouder of my youngest kid. Love you Todd, and can’t wait for next season!! Though mama needs a small rest, please. GO HUSKIES!!!”
