Get To Know More About Miranda Lambert’s Husband, Brendan McLoughlin


Miranda Lambert’s husband, Brendan McLoughlin, has been by the country star’s side for a little over two years now.

The lovebirds shocked the entire world when Lambert revealed in February 2019 that she tied the knot with McLoughlin in an intimate ceremony the month prior. And after all those years, Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin are still going strong, sharing countless adventures together so far.

Well, if you need some refresher about the singer’s lover, here some things you might not know yet about Brendan McLoughlin.

1. He’s a native of Staten Island, New York.

Born in 1991 in Staten Island, New York City, New York, McLoughlin is the youngest among the three siblings. His mother, Inova Valerio McLoughlin, is a former detective of the New York City Police Department.

McLoughlin also went to Monsignor Farrell High School, a Catholic high school in the Oakwood section of Staten Island, where he graduated in 2009. 

During his high school days, McLoughlin was very active in sports. He’s actually one of the school’s track stars, competing in the indoor track and field state championships a year before he graduated. Not only that, but he’s also a member of the relay team, where he participated in the outdoor track’s pole vault.

2. He was an aspiring model.

During his teenage years, McLoughlin gave modeling a try. He even created a profile in Model Mayhem, an online community for models and alike, where you will see McLoughlin’s professionally shot photos.

McLoughlin wrote that he was on the site to build his portfolio and described his style as “all american boy/ abercrombie/ sporty,” yet emphasizing that he was “open-minded.”

3. He used to work as a police officer within the New York Police Department.

Just like his mother, McLoughlin has also tried his hand in the law enforcement career by joining the New York Police Department as a police officer. And ever since getting the job, he’s been very active in different events and was frequently featured on the NYPD’s Twitter feed. 

This includes the time when he won first place during the Sgt. Keith A. Ferguson Memorial 5K run throughout the Brooklyn Bridge in New York and the momentous event wherein he has successfully stopped a bank robber. 

4. He met the country superstar while he was on the job.

It was actually during one of McLoughlin’s working days in 2018 where he met Lambert. During the country superstar’s guest appearance on Good Morning America with her band, The Pistol Annies, the police officer was also in the area, doing security for the show. It was in that very moment where they first laid eyes on each other.

In 2015, Lambert announced that her four years of marriage to fellow country superstar Blake Shelton had come to an end, and their divorce had already been finalized. Three years later, Lambert’s bandmates knew she’s ready to hang out with someone, so they invited McLoughlin on one of their shows – much to the singer’s surprise.

Yet, the two had instant chemistry, and they married just months later!

5. He’s a father to a two-year-old baby boy.

McLoughlin became a first-time dad in November 2018 when his then-girlfriend Kaihla Rettinger gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. 

Rettinger, a lawyer from Bayside, New York, has not spoken about the police officer’s marriage to Lambert. There was also no information on how long they’ve been together.

6. He has since joined Lambert’s security team.

After saying “I do” to Lambert, McLoughlin took an extended time away from his job to spend some quality time with his wife. But just over a year later, NYPD’s Public Information Office has confirmed McLoughlin’s ultimate decision to retire from the force.

Sources said that he’s now a part of Lambert’s security team and was even spotted wearing a lanyard as one of Lambert’s team representatives.

7. He’s an animal lover too!

Everyone knows how Lambert loves animals– especially dogs, that she even created a charity that promotes and facilitates the adoption of shelter pets.

And it seems like McLoughlin got the same soft spot too! The country singer turned to social media about how her husband brought home the newest addition to their family, Tequila the kitten, who McLoughlin found and rescued from the road.

Guess we can all agree that Miranda Lambert’s husband is the country singer’s perfect match!
