‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond is ‘Extremely Happy’ in Photo With Husband on Colorado Vacation: Here’s Why

by Emily Morgan

Food Network star Ree Drummond is feeling extra grateful to be on vacation with her husband, Ladd.

Recently, Drummond, known for her delectable delights on her “Pioneer Woman” show, posted a heartfelt post about feeling thankful for her vacation.

“Last time Ladd and I tried to go to Colorado together, there was this really bad accident involving a fire truck and we didn’t make it,” she began in the caption of the post that included a selfie of the parents of four.

For the Drummonds, Colorado has always had a special place in their hearts. Ree Drummond and her family have been visiting Vail, Colorado, for years. Her husband used to vacation there as a child. It’s such a special place for the Drummonds for a million reasons, one of the most crucial being that Drummond gets to unwind.

“So my answer to the question “How happy are you to be in Colorado with your husband right now?” would most definitely be this: Happy. So very, very, extremely, through-the-roof, over the moon happy. (Until he makes me hike up the Berry Picker trail with him later this week, then I will leave his butt on the mountain and drive back to Oklahoma by myself).”

In the comments, their daughter Alex gushed over Ree Drummond, writing, “Glowing now go kick back & relax!!!!”

The celebrity couple has been going strong in their marriage since 1996. Soon after tying the knot, Drummond sadly had to witness her own parents’ divorce after learning that her mother, Gerre Smith, had an affair with their family’s pastor.

Ree Drummond Excited About Her New Clothing Line

While Ree Drummond had been open about her struggles in the marriage before, it seems like the pair is as strong as ever. They recently saw their eldest daughter, Alex, walk down the aisle in her wedding ceremony back in the spring.

In other “Pioneer Woman” news, Ree Drummond recently released her brand new collaboration with Walmart. She’s now made her signature bohemian style available at the big box store.

The Pioneer Woman Summer Apparel Collection is full of bright colors, floral prints, and comfortable styles. The collection also features inclusive sizing with sizes ranging from SM to XXXXL. In addition, all the pieces are available for less than $30.

“I am beyond excited to bring my latest clothing collection to you,” Drummond said in a press release. “The Pioneer Woman summer collection offers all my favorite styles, like beautiful dusters, feminine blouses, flowy skirts, and comfy (and cute!) capris, in bright, new patterns so you can look extra gorgeous this summer!”

She added: “I love a wardrobe with a good handful of beautiful foundational elements,” the celebrity chef added. “All it takes is a key piece or two—a floral duster, a colorful top, or a pair of capris—to open up worlds of different looks!”
