Ready for your “awwwww” moment of the day?

Reba McEntire and her new beau Rex Linn first went public with their relationship a few weeks ago and now have adopted adorable nicknames for one another.

The couple each shared a photo from their recent trip to Montana and in the process dropped their nicknames. “Fun in MT with my Sugar Tot!!!” Reba wrote.

Rex posted his own photo and wrote, “TATER TOT. Angel on the ground (and on a cooler).”

While we search for some potato-inspired food to quench our newfound hunger, the couple’s relationship is a true quarantine success story.

Reba first met Rex back in January, but the couple didn’t get to spend much time together due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Not a problem though as Reba said at the time, “we were talking, texting, FaceTime. And that’s a really good way to get to know people.”

“He’s very into my music. I’m very into his career,” she says. “It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart, and is interested in me, too.”
