Food Network star Ree Drummond's oldest child has tied the knot. The family hosted the wedding of their 23-year-old daughter Alex at their Oklahoma ranch on Saturday, May 1, 2021. The Pioneer Woman’s daughter tied the knot to college boyfriend Mauricio Scott at the family’s massive Pawhuska, Oklahoma ranch.
On social media, several images were shared by Alex, her 21-year-old sister, Paige, and also their younger brother Todd, all showcasing how the family held quite a large celebration for their daughter.
Alex Drummond and Mauricio Scott met during their freshman year at Texas A&M University. After dating for a long time, they got engaged last August. Taking to social media to share the news, Alex Drummond wrote, "Mauricio Scott is the sweetest picture of God’s goodness and provision. And I get to spend FOREVER with him!! I love you, fiancé!!!!!!!”
On May 1, the Food Network personality took to Instagram to post a photo of herself and her husband Ladd just ahead of the big day. Ladd can be seen wearing a neck brace after that infamous accident on their ranch back in March 2021. "Our honeymoon baby is getting married tonight," she captioned the image, writing, "(TMI?😂)"
In another photo she shared with her husband on her Instagram stories, Ree wrote, "Love you, Ladd. (A lot.)"
Alex was surrounded by her parents Ree and Ladd Drummond, and her younger siblings Paige, Bryce, and Todd.
How many kids does Ree Drummond have?
Ree and Ladd together have four children — 23-year-old Alex, 21-year-old Paige, 18-year-old Bryce, and 16-year-old Todd. Todd Drummond also shared a sweet pic with his big sisters.
Ree had shared about her daughter’s wedding in a February blog post and why they chose the family's ranch as the location for the wedding. "It's where Alex grew up, and it just feels like the right place," Ree Drummond wrote. "I’m so excited for these two. I have loved watching their relationship grow, and it makes me happy that through all of it, the thing they do most consistently is laugh together."
Paige is studying at the University of Arkansas and Ree and Ladd also have a foster son named Jamar. In a 2020 interview, she spoke about Jamar, saying, "He's been living with us for over a year and a half."
"As I write in the book, Ladd, my husband, and myself never set out to be foster parents," she said. "But Jamar’s circumstances kind of presented themselves, and he’s just a full-on member of our family."
There is a reason why many don't know about Jamar. "Now I had a cooking show and other little elements of public life, and because of rules and regulations with the state agencies, I wasn’t able to share about Jamar. I felt very protective of him when he first came to live with us," she added. "So I didn’t want to kind of just thrust him out there."
But when Jamar started wondering if he was being hidden from the outside world, Ree made a decision. "So when he turned 18, I did write about him in the book. And I shared the essay with him before the book was published to make sure he was OK with it."
