While most fans of The Pioneer Woman are used to watching Ree Drummond whip up delectable dishes, the Food Network star has something special to share with viewers.
The famous red-head is proud to share her oldest daughter’s wedding ceremony tomorrow at 11 a.m. EST. Too excited to wait, Drummond already released a sneak peek of the special episode on her Instagram.
According to the Pioneer Woman, it was a happy occasion filled with only mild bouts of wedding chaos. In her caption of the clip, Ree Drummond said, “Lots of behind-the-scenes wedding fun, weather drama, and a few happy tears, too. It’ll be fun to experience it all while wearing jeans and no Spanx! (P.S. I may or may not have stepped on a floor vent cover with my wedding heels and gotten stuck right before the ceremony. Why, Ree?? Why??)”
Of course, with such a beautiful wedding venue at home, the wedding occurred on the ranch. Usually a spread of green pastures and grazing animals, the property transformed into an oasis of white and lilac. Despite the fact that the outdoor venue had neither power or water, from the looks of the preview, the ceremony and reception were a resounding success.
Meet the Four Kids of Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond
Alex Drummond (23) is the oldest of the four Drummond children. After graduating high school, Alex attended Texas A&M University, where she met her now-husband Mauricio. The new bride’s mom stated in her Instagram video that Alex has been on camera with the Food Network since she was 13 years old.
Paige (21), Drummond’s second oldest who looks strikingly similar to her big sister, attends the University of Arkansas and is finishing her third year. According to the Pioneer Woman, allowing her daughter to stray so far from the family ranch in Oklahoma was “no picnic.” The more artistic of the bunch, Paige helps her mom with filming for her cooking show.
Third in the Drummond line-up is the Pioneer Woman’s oldest son, Bryce (18). The Drummond family proudly shares that Bryce is one of the athletes in the bunch. In high school, he played quarterback for the Pawhuska Huskies all four years. Now at the University of North Texas, the rising star is training with his college’s Mean Green football program.
After his big brother comes 17-year-old Todd. Todd’s claim-to-fame is that he is an award-winning wrestler. However, he’s also following Bryce’s footsteps by playing quarterback in his senior year of high school.
Lastly, but certainly not least, comes the Pioneer Woman’s “bonus” son Jamar (18). Although technically a foster child, the Drummonds see Jamar as a genuine and permanent part of their family. Jamar is just a month apart in age from Bryce and even played football with him in high school.
Just like any mother would, Ree Drummond expresses her wish for the family to stay together a little longer.
“While it’s absolutely painful to see how grown up they all are, it’s a wonderful feeling to see the people they’re becoming,” she says.
