Miranda Lambert’s husband, Brendan McLoughlin, has left his job as a New York City police officer and is now working as her security guard. “His current duty status is retired,” Detective Sophia Mason, a New York Police Department DCPI spokesperson told Us Weekly. It was confirmed in July 2019 that McLoughlin, 29, had taken an “authorized leave of absence” from the force. He has since been seen multiple times at his wife’s concerts in what appeared to be an official security capacity. He is now working as a member of Lamber’s security team.

36-year-old Lambert marked her first wedding anniversary with her husband at the end of January, sharing a photo on Instagram from their 2019 wedding that showed the couple holding hands and writing, “I’m so happy to walk through this life with you. Thank you Brendan for making me. the proudest wife and stepmom. You are the reason for all my new smile lines. I love you. #MrsMcLoughlin.”

Lambert revealed on Valentine’s Day last year that she’d married McLoughlin three months after they met on the set of Good Morning America in NYC, where he was doing crowd control while she performed with her group the Pistol Annies. The pair split their time between Nashville and New York City. His toddler son with an ex-girlfriend lives on the East Coast.
