She is also really attached to her step-sister, Lacey. The Bradshaw family is undoubtedly famous and entertaining. Their unique equations with one another have been the premise of the reality TV show, ‘The Bradshaw Bunch.’
Rachel was born in Dallas but moved to Nashville to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a country singer.

Her early struggles include her battle with scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine.

Rachel Bradshaw’s Late Husband
Rachel met the love of her life, James Robert Douglas, in 2012. After dating for almost two years, the couple got married on June 28, 2014. As talented a footballer as his father-in-law, ‘Rob’ was a professional American football placekicker and held the NFL record for eight field goals in a single game. She seemed to be the happiest with him and shared their gazillion memories on her social media accounts.
But heartbreakingly, in September of the same year, he died a tragic death. The cause of his sudden demise was found out to be a blunt force trauma in a car crash. To this day, Rachel commemorates her late husband by proudly carrying a ‘warrior’ tattoo on her wrist.
