After her split with Blake Shelton in 2015, Miranda Lambert has been into different relationships. In February 2019, Miranda publicly announced that she has married Brendan McLoughlin in a secret ceremony on Jan. 26, 2019.
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton
Everyone was caught off guard by Miranda’s announcement including ex-husband, Blake Shelton.
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton met in 2005. The couple’s love story was considered as one of country music’s hottest love stories. Throughout the duration of their relationship, the couples bond seemed to be unbreakable.
The two first paired up when they performed David Frizzell and Shelly West’s hits “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” during the CMT 100 Greatest Duets special in September 2005. Blake, at that time, was still married to ex-wife Kaynette Williams.
Five months later, Blake divorced Kaynette. It was rumored that his relationship with Miranda was the primary reason for the divorce. Blake and Miranda publicly confirmed their relationship at the 2007 CMT Music Awards, as they posed together on a red carpet.
Blake proposed to Miranda in May 2010 during a romantic stroll through the woods near Miranda’s ranch in Oklahoma. The couple was married on May 14, 2011, in a rustic Ranch. But after years of denying rumors that their relationship was hanging on the cliff, the couple finally announced in July 2015 that they have officially parted ways.
Meet Miranda Lambert’s Husband Brendan McLoughlin
Miranda Lambert met Brendan McLoughlin in New York while on tour with her band, Pistol Annies. The attraction and chemistry between them were effortless and instantaneous. The two soon became a couple then finally settled months after. Their newlywed life showcased going on vacations and attending a few awards shows.
Miranda and Brendan’s marriage was also like any other relationship; they faced some frictions and hurdles, too. This included dodging paparazzi while traveling, protecting their marriage from rumors spread that it’s over between them and from all the negativity propagated through social media posts about the state of their marital relationship.
Fortunately, this isn’t the first time that Brendan has faced criticisms and won’t budge even now that he’s married to a celebrity. Brendan was very supportive and has always stood by Miranda’s side.
Who is Brendan McLoughlin?
Brendan McLoughlin is a New York Police officer born in State Island. He was later on assigned to the south Midtown Precinct Near Times Square.
Because of the contrast and various demands in their careers, Brendan’s chance of meeting Miranda seemed impossible. But, it was through their jobs that the couple met when Miranda was on, “Good Morning America” with her band Pistol Annies. Brendan was part of the security for the show and Miranda’s friends noticed the officer. They knew that Miranda was ready to open herself again to love, so they set them up.
Brendan has a son from a previous relationship that he had with Kaihla Rettinger before he met and fell in love with Miranda. But Miranda came to love being a stepmom to Brendan’s son. Miranda said that taking care of a son was a great experience. She also stated that the experience made her womanly journey complete, having to take care of a son and some dogs.
There’s one more thing that stood out about Brendan. He shares the same career as Miranda’s parents. Miranda’s parents were both law enforcement officers. Her Dad, Rick, was a homicide and narcotics cop in Dallas and together with Miranda’s mom, Bev, owned a detective agency.
Just by looking at the pictures taken during their wedding, it’s apparent that both Miranda and Brendan enjoy and love each other’s company. Every detail’s authentic with no clues of possible pretense for any social media analyst to find as a basis on what this union could possibly turn out in the future.
