Reba McEntire has a new man!
The country superstar announced on her podcast Living & Learning with Reba McEntire this week that she’s dating Better Call Saul actor Rex Linn.
After calling him a “very, very sweetheart of a guy,” McEntire shared how the couple blossomed amid the coronavirus. “We’ve been talking during the pandemic,” she explained. “We had dinner with Rex, was it 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.”
Back in January, Linn shared a photo presumably from that dinner. The two are seen smiling with their arms around each other. “Had a fantastic dinner with this Oklahoma girl,” he captioned the post. “Tater Tots and Ketchup included.”
McEntire also says that she enjoys chatting with Linn, and that they are very interested in each other’s careers. “It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart and is interested in me too,” she said.
The singer and actress split from her husband of 26 years, Narvel Blackstock, in 2015.
