The cookbook author has always been open with how close she is with her children, and earlier this year she revealed just how tough it has been with her daughters out of the house.

In an interview with Cowboys & Indians, she said: "When Alex, my oldest, left for college in 2015, it was sad and difficult as is always the case when the first kid goes to college.

“But I still had my second daughter, Paige, at home, so while we experienced a void where Alex had been, the vibe in our household was still the same.”

The blogger also touched on how different it was when Paige left home to start her first semester at the University of Arkansas.

She said: "There was an immediate difference in the culture of our house.

"It was suddenly, very noticeably, a man cave, where ranching and football were (and still are!) the primary focus."

However, while her daughters are in college, Ree revealed earlier this year that she visited Paige and treated her sorority to some cooking demonstrations "just for fun."

She wrote on Instagram: "Paige helped me, we told stories of life on the ranch and filming my cooking show as a family, and I got to observe the cool, strong-minded woman she’s becoming..."
