Reba then married Narvel Blackstock in 1989. Narvel had three kids already, Shawna, Brandon, and Chassidy. Even after Reba and Narvel’s divorce, she said, “I don’t consider Brandon, Chassidy and Shawna stepchildren. I claim them all.”
Shawna and Chassidy stay out of the spotlight as well, but Brandon works as a manager, just like his father. He also married singer, Kelly Clarkson. When the pair got engaged, Reba said, “To have my buddy as my daughter-in-law, I mean, who could ask for more? [Kelly’s] a girl with a big heart. Very giving, loving, and talented.”
Of course, Reba and Narvel have a son of their own named Shelby! He was born in 1990, just a year after they got married. These days Shelby is a full-time professional race car driver. He also seems to be a mama’s boy, spending time with Reba whenever he can.
Reba occasionally posts photos of her children, so it seems like they all have stayed close. That is so sweet to see!
