The country singer married Brendan McLoughlin in 2019

Lambert and McLoughlin have had a whirlwind romance. The two met in 2018 when Lambert performed on Good Morning America with the Pistol Annies. At the time, McLoughlin was an officer with the New York Police Department, and he worked security at the show that day.

The two married in January 2019, just a few months after originally meeting. Lambert and her husband primarily live on her farm in Nashville. However, they do split time between Nashville and New York City, where McLoughlin has a child from a previous relationship.

In a 2019 interview with Extra, Lambert revealed what her relationship with McLoughlin is like.

“My stepson is amazing. 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. It’s great,” said Lambert.

She continued, “We have the best of both worlds. 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.”

Based on fans’ comments on her new Instagram posts, it’s clear fans of Lambert are happy about her marriage too.
