Reba McEntire has one biological son and five stepchildren. Find out more about them here.
Reba McEntire has had a successful career in country music over the years, but she is also a devoted mother. She has welcomed five stepchildren, including Coty, Lance, Shawna, Brandon, and Chassidy, throughout two marriages in her life, and has always praised her role as a parent.
Below you can learn more about Reba's children.
Reba's only biological child is Shelby Blackstock, who was born in February 1990 to her and her husband at the time, Narvel Blackstock. After graduating from college, he began racing in the US F2000 National Championship, the Pro Mazda Championship, and the Indianapolis Lights.
Reba made sure to express her love for her son in an unforgettable Instagram post in January 2020, when he competed in the Daytona International Speedway. Shelby, 'Love returning to Daytona International Speedway for the #roar,' she wrote.
Shelby established a family of his own when he married Marissa Branch in February 2022. The couple met on the dating app Tinder in 2014 and were friends for two years before they decided to start a romance. After their wedding, the couple spoke to People about their marriage and relationship.
Coty Battles became Reba's stepson when she married his dad, Charlie Battles, in 1976. He reportedly followed his father's footsteps when he became a wrestler but eventually settled down as a rancher in Waco, TX, according to his Facebook page.
Reba's second stepchild was Charlie, whom she divorced in 1987, so little is known about him. One of the most recent times he was mentioned in a publication was in his father's obituary after he died of heart failure and stroke complications in 2013.
Shawna Rene Blackstock is a model and actress.
When Reba's stepchildren married Narvel Blackstock in 1989, Shawna Rene Blackstock became another of the artist's stepchildren. Like Lance, she has led a very private life. Although she's on Instagram, her account is private.
Brandon Blackstock is a Canadian businessman.
Brandon Blackstock was born in 1976, and his father is Narvel. Reba was married to singer Kelly Clarkson from 2013 until 2021. They have two children, Savannah and Seth.
Chassidy Celeste Blackstock
Chassidy Celeste Blackstock is another of Narvel's children who became Reba's stepchild in 1989. She was born in 1978, and, like some of her siblings, she's chosen to keep her life as private as possible. She's been seen accompanying Reba for functions in the past, though, and the two seem quite close.
