Miranda Lambert sure knows how to keep a secret! The Grammy award-winning country star revealed Saturday (February 16) that she had married. The news came as a shock to fans who didn’t even know she was in a relationship. Lambert shared the news on social media along with two photos from her top secret wedding.
“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,” Lambert wrote.
So, who is Brendan McLoughin? We’ve found some answers for you, and we must say….he sounds like a keeper!
He’s An NYPD Officer
Brendan McLoughlin is originally from Staten Island, New York, and is a New York City police officer in the Midtown South precinct. It’s unclear how long he’s been an officer, but he appears to be a good one! In March 2018, his precinct congratulated him after he apprehended a bank robbery suspect.
“This week these fine officers showed what we do best in #Midtown. PO McLoughlin apprehended perpetrator in a bank robbery in progress & PO Donato had a pick up arrest of a truck burglary closing out several open complaints.”

He Was Once A Model
When McLoughlin was just 19-years-old he pursued a modeling career. His profile on the website Model Mayhem reveals a shirtless photo and details that the handsome cop is 5’11” and “is all american boy/ abercrombie/ sporty but I’m open minded, so feel free to network with me, share your ideas, and organize sessions.” His profile also states that he is now 28-years old, making him 7 years younger than his new bride.
He’s An Athlete
If the photo above isn’t enough proof, Brendan is in great shape! In 2015, he won first place in a memorial 5K race!
