“We kept in contact over the years, we both know the same people,” Reba said on Watch What Happens Live. “So it was just like good friends getting back together and having dinner … then we started texting and talking on the telephone and getting to know each other better during the quarantine.”
The couple started dating during the pandemic after they reconnected following the death of Reba‘s mother.
The two stars worked together on season three of Big Sky, in which they played husband and wife.
Reba called Rex the “love of my life” at the time and told People, “To play husband and wife, it’s natural for us. Rex and I rehearse all the time to make sure that when we step on that set, we’re not wasting anybody’s time. We’re professionals. We have our stuff together, we show up on time, we’re ready. We’re not holding up anybody because time is money on the TV set.”
Rex is best known for playing Sgt. Frank Tripp on CSI: Miami and Kevin Wachtell on Better Call Saul.
