It was a busy couple of days for country music superstar Miranda Lambert. In the same week in which she was raked over the coals for tossing a salad on a woman in a Nashville restaurant, she also made a surprise announcement about a life-changing event that had taken place just weeks before.
If you’ll recall, just last week, the 35-year-old entertainer caught the world’s attention when she took matters into her own hands after a fellow restaurant patron allegedly accosted Miranda’s dinner companion. Apparently, in an effort to put an end to the ugly confrontation, Ms. Lambert approached the table where the brouhaha was occurring and tossed her salad right I the face of the wife of the man who she thought was the aggressor in the altercation.
Then, just a few days later, on the holiday for lovers, 35-year-old Miranda surprised fans with a completely unexpected announcement: she had secretly gotten married to someone barely anyone even knew she was dating!
And just who is her brand new husband? In her February 14th Tweet she tells all:
“In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to share some news. I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you Brendan Mcloughlin for loving me for.... me. ❤️”
McLaughlin is a 27-year-old foot-patrol police officer who works midtown Manhattan and is the father of a three-month-old baby with an ex-partner.
There’s been no public confirmation on how or when the two met, but multiple outlets are reporting that they’ve known each other since only last November.
According to US Magazine, “Lambert and her new husband — who welcomed a baby in November 2018 with an ex — were spotted holding hands and showing off their new wedding rings in NYC hours after confirming their nuptials on Saturday.”
Many are wondering if Miranda gave her ex-husband a ‘heads-up’ before tying the knot.
“The musician was previously married to fellow country singer Blake Shelton for four years before they split in July 2015. A source told Us Weekly that Shelton, 42, wasn’t given a warning about the nuptials. ‘Blake found about the wedding at the same time everyone else did,’ the insider explained.
“Blake was not given a heads-up and doesn’t know her new husband. Since they split they have had almost zero contact.
“Following their divorce, Lambert dated musicians Anderson East and Evan Felker. Shelton, for his part, moved on with fellow Voice coach Gwen Stefani in October 2015 and they’ve been together ever since."
“Miranda Lambert threw a salad, got married and became a stepmother in a week. Who said this fandom ever got boring?”
Please join us in wishing Miranda and Brendan the very best in their new life together.
