Reba McEntire’s Boyfriend Rex Linn Calls Her “Tater Tot” – But Why?

Reba McEntire and her boyfriend Rex Linn have taken to calling each other “tater tot” and “sugar tot.” The nicknames developed after they went to dinner on what ended up being their first date.

As the couple once explained, Reba was thrilled to see tater tots on the menu. Rex thought her enthusiasm was adorable, and dubbed her “tater tot.”

“On the menu was Tater Tots and I just went nuts because I love Tater Tots,” Reba said. “And so, Rex is famous for giving people nicknames and he said, ‘That’s yours.'”

That was the perfect moment. You ordered Tater Tots, you delved into them like a great white shark with ketchup,” Rex added. “And I just thought, ‘that’s it. It’s Tater Tot.'”
