Food Network Star Ree Drummond is best known for cooking hearty, hearty meals at her Oklahoma ranch on the show The pioneer woman. Drummond often draws inspiration from her family for her recipes, whether it’s cooking for her husband Ladd after a long day with the cattle or cooking a family meal for her kids home from college. Throughout her years on the show, Drummond has also introduced us to the close bond she shares with her children.
Drummond shares a special bond with his daughter, Alex, as she is the Food Network star’s first born. And the two looked adorable in matching florals in a recent appearance.
Ree Drummond shares a strong bond with her eldest daughter, Alex
Drummond raised four children on his Oklahoma ranch, and the family recently welcomed a new addition with their son Jamar. Now, Drummond’s five kids are mostly out on their own, with Alex and Paige having graduated college, Bryce and Jamar currently attending college, and Todd preparing to enter his senior year of high school.
Drummond loves all of her children, but she has a particularly close bond with Alex as she is Drummond’s first daughter. Alex was often featured on Drummond’s Food Network show, and when the pandemic hit in 2020, Alex took the reins of filming his mother so the show could continue.
Once Alex started dating Mauricio Scott, Drummond welcomed him with open arms. Alex and Mauricio got married in May 2021.

Recently, Alex posted a instagram pic of her and her mother hosting an outdoors-themed live stream, and the two wore complementary outfits that appeared to be from Drummond’s summer clothing collection. “Just another day at the office,” part of Alex’s caption read. Fans loved the mother-daughter duo wearing matching flowers.
“You are both the best of the best,” one fan wrote.
“You 2 [sic] are so cute!” another person commented.
Another user suggested that Drummond and his daughter look like sisters, while someone else asked if Alex would continue working with his mother. Although Alex didn’t answer the question, it seems likely that the two will continue to appear together.
Alex Drummond previously said she was in no rush to start a family
Alex is the only Drummond girl who married; she married Mauricio Scott in the spring of 2021 at the Drummond family ranch. Now the two have settled in Dallas, Texas, near where they went to college, though Alex often returns to Oklahoma.
Alex already said People that she is often asked when or if she and Mauricio are going to start a family. However, the 24-year-old made it clear she was in no rush. “People asked, ‘Oh, are your parents in a hurry for you to have a baby and grandkids? ‘” she said. “But I really didn’t feel any pressure from my parents to rush into this.” Alex added that his parents told him and Mauricio to “enjoy the wedding” as they are both “still so young”.
