One thing you might be wondering is how Ladd got the nickname “Marlboro Man.” In the winter 2018 issue of “The Pioneer Woman” magazine, Drummond shared with her readers how her husband became known by this nickname. She said one reason for the nickname was so that she could conceal his identity when she first started her blog. There was also one other funny reason. Here’s what Drummond said about the origin of Ladd’s nickname:

Years ago, when my best friend Hyacinth had her third child, I threw a baby shower for her and invited a bunch of people who had never been to my house. Ladd was on the porch and as guests were arriving, I heard one of them, Carla Brown, say, “My gosh, who is that Marlboro Man sitting on the porch?” When I started my blog back in 2006, I thought you should never reveal your real name on the Internet, so I just referred to Ladd as Marlboro Man!

If you love The Pioneer Woman blog, Ladd is partly to thank for that. He encouraged Ree to start her blog, reports “People” magazine. According to the publication, Ladd would get their four children out of the house for a few hours so that Ree could concentrate on her writing. His thoughtfulness paid off because she is now one of Food Network’s top TV personalities.

Ladd also helped Ree come up with the idea for their Pawhuska hotel. “Every good idea I’ve had has come from him,” said Ree in a different interview with “People” magazine. “I think of myself as this independent woman who can handle everything herself, but I really trust his opinion.” It’s a good thing Ree trusted Ladd, because the duo has developed some great ideas.
