The “Does He Love You” singer met Anthony, 70, during a vacation to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As a wildlife photographer, Anthony was able to take Reba out and show her the best spots for animal sightings.

Though she was hesitant to dive headfirst into a relationship, Reba explained that her patience paid off. “We’re totally in love — absolutely,” she said. “I wouldn’t put up with somebody for two years if I wasn’t in love with ’em!”
