‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Recalls ‘Rough’ Injury Son Todd Sustained on the Farm as a Child

Pioneer Woman star Ree Drummond recently wished her husband, Ladd, a happy Father's Day—and in doing so, she recalled a "rough" injury their son, Todd, sustained on the farm as a child.

On Sunday, June 16, the Food Network star took to Instagram with a throwback photo in honor of the day dedicated to dads.

"Ladd and Todd, 2006-ish," she captioned the snap, which showed a toddler-aged Todd (with a heavily-bandaged hand) kissing his father.

Ree continued: "Todd loved superheroes and thought the branding iron was a sword. 🫤 Despite the rough day, I love this pic from later that evening. Happy Father’s Day to the father of my babies. ❤️😭."

Meanwhile, one Instagram user wrote, "Aww…what a beautiful picture, Ree! 🥹 (despite sweet little Todd’s injury! 😢) Happy Father’s Day to Ladd, and ALL the wonderful dads out there! 💙💙💙."
