“He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage!,” she told the outlet. “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.”

Back in June, Lisa shared a photo on Instagram of her with her four children.  “Mama Lion with cubs ❤️🖤💚💙🦁,” she captioned the black and white photo.
