Some ladies might cringe to realize they’re acting just like their mothers, but that’s not the case at all for Reba McEntire. Soon after she welcomed her son, Shelby, into the world in 1990, Reba started noticing some big similarities between herself and her mama, Jackie.

Let the fun begin!!!!! @patmanley @jacmcentire

A post shared by Reba (@reba) on

Reba tells SheKnows.com, “When I would get on to Shelby in a certain way, I knew I was echoing something Mama had said or done. I loved it.”

Jackie and Reba also share a hearty sense of humor.


“Mama is funny,” Reba says. “She has a great sense of humor and loves a good joke. Love’s a practical joke, too. Watch out.”

Reba also leans on her mother for support and the occasional kick in the pants, too.

“My mama is my best friend,” says Reba. “We have fun. We can talk about anything. She always is on my side but really quick to tell me when I’m wrong. That’s a true friend.”

As you’ve hopefully seen by now, Reba included Jackie in her moving video for “Just Like Them Horses.” You can see them in the video above enjoying some time together outdoors.
