I'm sure you all know Reba McEntire as a country star but I wonder, how many remember when she was sitcom star? She had a sitcom on the WB called Reba and it was about her being a divorcee and dealing with all the ups & downs of raising a family. It showed that not all divorces have to be bad, some can be civil and they can actually can along well.
It showed that family's can be big and crazy but still work. It also dealt with teen pregnancy and teen marriage, it showed how hard it is and that there's a lot of struggles being young parents and a young married couple Though I wouldn't recommend having a baby or getting married as a teen, this show proves if it does end up happening, when you are with the right person, it can work. I thought it was a good show and showed the reality of a lot of different issues.
So, I decided to pay tribute to the sitcom Reba. I hope you enjoy.

It also shows how much she loves her husband, child and whole family.

Kyra- is Brock and Reba's middle child. She is the most normal, out of all of them and applies herself quite well in academics. Later in the series, she forms a rock band.

Despite all that and not showing much emotion, deep down it's clear she loves her whole crazy family.

Jake- is Brock and Reba's youngest child. He's picked on a lot by his sister Kyra and in the first seasons, shows some feminine qualities that freak his father out.

However, she's well intentioned, has a good heart and loves her husband and child.

Upon finding out he and Cheyenne are having a baby together, he decides to do the right thing and purposes to her. His parents, ended up kicking him out of the house and disowning him. So, he moves into the Hart residence. He can be a big goof and not so great with words, but he's a great father to his daughter and a good husband to his wife. He loves his in-laws and is quite grateful to them for all they've done for him, in his times of need.

Elizabeth- She's Van & Cheyenne's daughter. There's not much to say about her, they don't really show her much but when they do, she's quite adorable.
Henry Hart played by Alexander & Jackson McClellan
Henry- He's Brock & Barbra Jean's son. There's not much to say about him either, except when they do show him they (at times) portray him as a brat. Other then that, he doesn't have a big role but is also adorable.
