The 65-year-old country music star opened up about her new man in the “Dating” episode of her Living & Learning With Reba McEntire podcast. She discussed her love life with former Reba co-star Melissa Peterman.
According to McEntire, they started seeing one another earlier this year. They went on a dinner date in January, “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,” she said.
Shortly after the news broke about their relationship, thousands of Instagram users rushed to a photo of the happy couple together on Instagram. Linn posted the photo on his account back in January while the two were enjoying dinner together. However, at the time, McEntire and Linn’s fans did not necessarily suspect the two were in a relationship. Now, the fans could not seem happier.
