The country singer confirmed her new relationship during the latest episode of her podcast Living & Learning With Reba McEntire.

Reba told co-host Melissa Peterman: “Yeah, yeah, I am [dating].

“A very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn. And we’ve been talking during the pandemic.”

The 65-year-old said: “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.”

She continued: “It’s good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what’s going on. Discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor, me being an actress.”

The singer added of her new love: “And he’s very into my music. I’m very into his career.

“It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart, and is interested in me, too.”

Back in January, the 63-year-old actor teased a potential relationship when he shared a snap of the pair cuddling close at dinner.

During an episode of her talk show, she told guest Beth Behrs: “I literally don’t know how anyone goes through anything horrible or big in their life without having an outlet, like I have with writing.

“I was talking to Gwen [Stefani] the other day on The Voice. We’re both writing for our next albums and it’s like, even if no one hears it, it’s so therapeutic and it’s so good for you. That’s your outlet.”

Back in July, Kelly admitted her mental health had been up and down following her divorce.

The American Idol alum also revealed that she was suffering from “depression” during lockdown.

The mother-of-two shared: “I have suffered from depression and it’s one of those things where I don’t do well.

“And I’m an extrovert, so this not seeing humans and not interacting, I really feed off of people’s energy and I love the people that I’ve chosen to surround myself with in my life.

“So, yeah, I definitely missed even like my glam squad, you know?”
