Miranda Lambert’s husband, Brendan McLoughlin, has retired from the New York Police department, Fox News confirms.
“His current duty status is retired,” Sergeant Jessica McRorie, an NYPD DCPI spokesperson, told the publication. According to their source, McLoughlin retired earlier this month.
The former officer’s retirement comes after he took a leave of absence for several months to join Lambert on the road. Since the summer of 2019, McLoughlin has been spotted at several of Lambert’s concerts working security.
Fox News reports that he has now joined the superstar on tour full time to work security, however, that has yet to be confirmed by Lambert or her camp.
Lambert and McLoughlin celebrated their first anniversary on January 26. The singer/songwriter marked the occasion with a heartfelt Instagram post directed at McLoughlin, writing, “I’m so happy to walk through this life with you.”
The “Bluebird” singer is currently in the midst of her Wildcard Tour, which has dates planned through May 9.
