The Pistol Annies singer was previously married to fellow country sensation and The Voice host, Blake Shelton — who is now together with Gwen Stefani.

Lambert had never spoken publicly about her relationship with McLoughlin before she posted about their marriage.

McLoughlin, 27, was revealed to be an officer in the midtown south division of the New York Police Department (NYPD).

A number of tweets from the NYPD show McLoughlin working on the job.

It’s currently unclear where Lambert and her new husband met, however, many are heavily speculating it was last November when she performed on Good Morning America in New York City — where he often works security.

“Back in Oct. when I performed on @GMA I told this good looking cop I had someone for him,” wrote musician Anita Cochran on Twitter. “He showed me his hand and said “no ring.”

“That didn’t last long lol,” he added. “Congrats to you both, @mirandalambert and Brendan McLoughlin. Best of luck!”
