Who is Beau Grayson Tucker?

Beau Grayson Tucker was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 2 October 1991 – his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality. He’s probably only known for being the son of the American actor Ben Reed, and the American country music singer-songwriter Tanya Denise Tucker.

Early life and education

Beau was raised in Los Angeles alongside his older sister Presley Tanita, who was born on 5 July 1989, and he also has a maternal half-sister Layla LaCosta, who was born on 25 June 1999, and whose father is the Nashville musician Jerry Laseter.

Beau grew up being interested in numerous activities; he was motivated by his father to pursue acting, as well as by his mother to pursue singing. He started playing the guitar when he was nine years old, and was able to play various songs by the time he enrolled at a local high school in 2005; during those four years, Beau was mostly focused on acting, playing the guitar and playing soccer with his school’s team.

He matriculated in 2009, and because he hasn’t spoken of his further education, most people believe that he hasn’t attended college.

Beau’s career

Beau has been keeping his career away from the media’s attention, while it’s known that he has occasionally played the guitar with his mother, while touring around the US.

There are rumors circulating the internet, claiming that Beau is today also a member of his own country band, but this hasn’t been confirmed.

Love life and girlfriend

Beau is highly secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t spoken of any women (or men) whom he has perhaps been with. This is why there are many rumors on the internet, concerning both his sexual orientation, and his current relationship status.


Some of his parents’ fans believe that Beau is gay, and that this is why he hasn’t spoken of the women whom he’s dated, and hasn’t been seen spending time with any in public. A fan has even claimed to have seen Beau kissing his boyfriend, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Beau addressed these rumors.

There are also those who claim that he’s today dating a non-celebrity American girl, and that he prefers to keep her away from the media’s attention, but this also remains unconfirmed.

As of December 2021, Beau appears to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

Beau is quite active on Instagram, and has uploaded close to 30 pictures onto the network, while he’s today followed by over 300 people.

Late at night, he likes to watch movies starring his favorite actor and actress, Jim Carrey and Natalie Portman, such as “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective – When Nature Calls”, “Liar Liar” and “Leon: The Professional”.

Who is his father Ben Reed?

Benjamin Lee ‘Ben’ Reed was born in Bixby, Oklahoma USA, on 1 May 1965 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality. He has appeared in more than 50 movies and TV series, and is probably known best for his portrayal of Wayne Kyle, in the 2014 biographical action movie “American Sniper”. It was directed by Clint Eastwood, starred Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Kyle Gallner, and follows the Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle who has saved numerous lives on the battlefield, but after he returns home, Chris realizes that he can’t leave war behind him. The movie won 25 awards, including an Oscar for Best Achievement in Sound Editing, while it was nominated for 43 other awards.

Ben was raised in Bixby by his parents, about whom nothing’s known, as he respects their privacy; he hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.

Ben matriculated from a local high school in 1983, and then enrolled at West Virginia University, at which he became interested in acting, appearing in many plays performed at the university, while he was also on the school’s football team as a quarterback.

He launched his acting career with his portrayal of Vince in the 1990 episode “Bend Me, Shape Me” of the comedy series “Babes”, while a couple of his following roles were in the 1991 action thriller movie “Frame Up”, the 1993 episode “The Outing” of the comedy series “Seinfeld”, and the 1993 episode “Simple Trust” of the crime series “Crime & Punishment”.

He only gained recognition more than a decade later, when he played Dr. Mathew Evans in the 2006 romantic series “Fashion House”, which starred Robert Buckley, Natalie Martinez and Nicole Pulliam, and follows a ruthless mogul who’s defending her company from being taken over.


Some of Ben’s following roles were in the 2009 comedy film “Married Not Dead”, the 2014 romantic thriller movie “Starcrossed”, and the 2016 thriller movie “Inconceivable”.

Ben and Tanya split not long after the birth of Beau (they weren’t married), and he hasn’t spoken of any other women whom he has perhaps been with, however, Ben has apparently just recently been spotted spending time with a non-celebrity American girl who could perhaps be his girlfriend.

Who is Beau’s mother Tanya Tucker?

Tanya Denise Tucker was born in Seminole, Texas USA, on 10 October 1958 – her zodiac sign is Libra, and she holds American nationality. She launched her career as a singer when she was only 13 years old – her debut single “Delta Dawn” became a huge hit.

Tanya was raised mostly in Willcox, Arizona, alongside her three siblings, the artist La Costa, singer Don and her late brother Robert (died of pneumonia in September 2017), by their mother Juanita Tucker who was a housewife, and their father Jesse ‘Beau’ who was a heavy equipment operator; because of Jesse’s career, the family often moved while Tanya was growing up. She became interested in country music mostly because her parents often took her and her siblings to country concerts, and she enjoyed listening to Mel Tillis and Ernest Tubb. She was 11 when she auditioned for a role in the 1972 western movie “Jeremiah Johnson”, and both Tanya and her horse were given support roles.

In 1972, she signed a contract with Columbia Records, and her second single “Love’s the Answer” was released in the second half of the year, reaching the top 10 on the US charts. Tanya’s following three singles “What’s Your Mama’s Name”, “Blood Red and Goin’ Down” and “Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone)” all topped the US charts.


On 6 November 1978, she released her debut album “TNT”, which spawned the hits “Texas (When I Die)”, and “I’m a Singer, You’re the Song”. The first half of the ‘80s saw Tanya struggle, as she had only two hit songs, including “Can I See You Tonight?”

She signed a contract with Capitol Records in 1986, and the same year saw the release of her album “Girls Like Me”, which helped her become popular again; three of the album’s songs peaked at #1 on various charts, including the songs “Strong Enough to Bend” and “If It Don’t Come Easy”.

In 1997, Tanya was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.

She founded her own agency, Tuckertime Records in 2002, and in the same year released her next album “Tanya”; she signed a contract with Saguaro Road Records in 2009, and in June her first cover album “My Turn” came out, which peaked at #27 on the Billboard Country Chart.

Most recently, on 26 January 2020, Tanya won two Grammy Awards for her songs “While I’m Living” and “Bring My Flowers Now”.

She’s also an author, as she wrote and published her autobiography “Nickel Dreams: My Life” in 1997.

In 1980 and 1981, Tanya was in a relationship with the late American guitarist and singer-songwriter Glen Travis Campbell, and the following years saw her date a couple of other entertainers, including Andy Gibb, Don Johnson and Merle Haggard. She had a more serious relationship with actor Ben Reed, and with him produced daughter Presley on 5 July 1989, and then son Beau.

In 1997, she became engaged to the musician Jerry Laseter – they then called it off, but became engaged again in 1999; Tanya cancelled the wedding two days before it was to take place, because she learned that she was pregnant with their daughter Layla LaCosta. Apparently, it was never rescheduled.
