‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Continues with Then-and-Now Photos of Football-Playing Sons: ‘Todd Edition’

by Chris Haney

On Tuesday evening, the “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond continued her recent series of then-and-now photos of her football-playing sons.

Ree and her husband, Ladd Drummond, own a working ranch outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma. That’s where they’ve raised their four biological children and one foster son, Jamar. It’s also where her Pioneer Woman empire has taken shape through the years.

She started out as a food blogger who wrote about her recipes and her family’s life on their Oklahoma ranch. From there Drummond’s career has taken off and continuously expanded. She’s written cookbooks, opened a brick-and-mortar store in Pawhuska, and has one of the most popular cooking shows on the Food Network. The famous, down-to-earth chef has her hand in many pots, but she always has time for her family.

Recently, the Pioneer Woman has posted a series of photos of her two sons. While she has two daughters named Alex and Paige, she’s focused on her sons who play football for their respective schools in her most recent posts. Yesterday, Ree shared a post about her eldest son, Bryce. Today, it was Todd’s turn.

She used a popular social media theme for her football-related posts. Many users will post under the caption “How it started vs. How it’s going.” Along with the theme, people share an old photo along with a recent one. In this case, Ree shared a throwback photo of a young Todd in full football pads and a Miami Dolphins jersey. In addition, she shared a recent pic of Todd in his high school football uniform.

“How it started vs. how it’s going – Todd edition. (He’s a little taller now?) GO HUSKIES!” the Pioneer Woman wrote about her son, Todd.

‘Pioneer Woman’ Posts Then-and-Now Photos of Eldest Son

As mentioned, Ree Drummond shared a similar post yesterday about her eldest son, Bryce. The Pioneer Woman celebrated the beginning of college football season with a personal post about her loved one. In fact, Bryce Drummond is a freshman quarterback for the University of North Texas football team.

Although the Drummond family are from Oklahoma, Bryce jumped over the border to play football for the Denton, Texas-based university. As a freshman, he’ll likely play as a backup this season, but momma Drummond is as proud as ever.

In her original then-and-now Instagram post, she shared an adorable photo of her oldest son as a kid playing football. Then, she added another picture of Bryce at one of North Texas’ recent football practices.

“How it started vs. how it’s going. Go Bryce! Go Mean Green!” Bryce’s mother captioned her post.
