There are a lot of facts missing. Contact a local attorney with family law experience to discuss the matter.
If there is no court order saying that she can't--she can. Although if he acts and files suit in Texas before the child has been out of the state for 6 months, he can ask the court to order the child's residence to be restricted to Texas and in the county where the child lived before moving.

She can relocate if no court order exists and no petition has been filed and served. Time is of the essence for your son (I presume the dad?) to file before Texas loses jurisdiction. If Texas remains the last state where the child resided for six consecutive months or more, Texas has jurisdiction, but time is of the essence. Once the child has physically resided in Massachusetts, that state's law applies and that state is where the case will be done and decided. Massachusetts is the only jurisdiction in this country not to have enacted the UCCJEA. He needs counsel in Bell County ASAP. Regarding her legal marriage to another, that husband is the presumed father of that child and genetic testing will be required to sort out paternity. That will be in Texas if jurisdiction belongs in Texas. Time is of the essence and so is counsel.
