How the Couple First Met
Brendan McLoughlin first met Lambert while she was in town to perform with Pistol Annies on Good Morning America in November 2018. Ran’s bandmates, Ashley and Angeleena, helped bring them together…playing matchmakers for the couple.
“My girlfriends, the Annies, saw him and knew I might be ready to hang out with someone. They invited him to our show behind my back. They plucked him for me. My security guy Tom, he was in on it too. He said to me, ‘He’s here. And he’s pretty.’ [Laughs] Now the Pistol Annies have three husbands, two ex-husbands, three children, a stepson and 23 animals. We’ve done a lot in nine years!” the star joked.
When asked if it was love at first sight, she joked, “I guess so. If that’s a thing. I have eight dogs and had love at first sight with them, too. Must be easier than I thought!”
Miranda Lambert’s Husband: Secret Wedding Ceremony
So why was Miranda Lambert’s wedding in Davidson Country, Tennessee on January 26, 2019 so hush-hush until she broke the news to fans on February 16th? It’s pretty simple, she learned some important lessons from her first marriage to fellow country music artist Blake Shelton.
“I was married before, and it was a huge wedding and everything was very public. So was my divorce,” Lambert explained. “I learned then that it’s not for everybody else. This is my actual life. With Brendan, I made it a point to keep it as private as I could for as long as I could.”After going through so much in her 36 years on this planet, the Texan now knows exactly what she wants and is willing to grab it.
“I feel like I’ve been through enough in my life to know what I don’t want, so when I know what I do want I snatch it right up,” Lambert shared about falling head over heels for McLoughlin. Although being thrown into the spotlight can be difficult, Miranda says her husband is doing well despite having every part of his personal life put under the microscope and ‘takes it like a champ.’
Miranda’s Step Mom Role
Brendan is the father of 7-month-old son from a previous relationship with his ex, Kaihla Rettinger,. His son (Landon) was born in November 5, 2019.
“We have the best of both worlds,” Lambert shared with Extra in June 2019 about their marriage and Brendan McLoughlin’s son. “We spend time in New York, we get to see our adorable nugget, then we get to come back to the farm and have the quiet life. I’m enjoying the balance.”
The star also revealed that she is enjoying a whole new experience with Landon.
“I’m loving that whole phase, and I’ve raised a million dogs, so I feel like I’ve got that part of my womanly/motherly thing is full, so this is a whole new journey,” she added. “It’s great… My stepson is amazing.”
According to In Touch, country music superstar Miranda Lambert and husband Brendan McLoughlin have purchased a $2 million New York City apartment. This move makes total sense, Brendan is a NYPD officer and remains based in the city. The 28-year-old also shares custody of his infant son, Landon, with his ex-girlfriend. The outlet’s source also claims that the couple’s new place has a nursery for the little one.
Brendan Adapting to a Life with Lots of Animals
Before marrying Miranda, Brendan had zero pets. Now he has nine dogs, four cats, and five horses!
“[Brendan’s] a great guy and, bless his heart, he didn’t have any dogs or any animals at all when he came into this relationship, so he inherited a whole barn full,” Lambert kidded. “I was like, ‘Hey, I got the dogs, you got the kid, we can mix and mingle.’”On a recent road trip, the couple rescued a kitten that Miranda gave to her dad.
Miranda Lambert’s Prior Relationships
