He’s onto bigger and better things, y’all. Miranda Lambert‘s new husband, Brendan McLoughlin, is loving his move to Tennessee, according to a source who spoke exclusively with Life & Style. The NYPD cop recently headed down south to live with his wife. How sweet!

“He loves talking about Miranda,” an insider revealed after the stud was spotted having a boys’ night out in NYC on June 26. “He’s so happy he moved there to be with her and has no regrets, especially because he realizes he’s happier in Tennessee than he was in New York.”

Honestly, we’re not surprised to hear things are going seriously well for these newlyweds. In fact, Miranda, 35, has been really showing her love for her new man in the sweetest ways.

Brendan, 27, and Miranda were spotted on the streets of NYC on June 13 and the Texas native’s ink was proudly on display. It looks as though the country crooner’s new tattoo features two “Ms” on either side of a big, red heart. Looks like someone is excited to be married! Considering how much the blonde beauty gushed about her new stepson, we think she’s loving her fam.

“My stepson is amazing,” she raved about Brendan’s little boy, Landon, during an interview with Extra while attending the annual Mutt March in Nashville on June 6. “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 full, so this is a whole new journey. It’s great.”

The newlyweds met in November 2018 while Miranda was performing on Good Morning America. Since the show films in Times Square, Brendan was lucky enough to get a front-row seat to see the blonde and her band, Pistol Annies, since that was his area of assignment with the NYPD.

But here’s the kicker: Just three days before the cop met his now-wife, his ex Kaihla Rettinger gave birth to their son. But that didn’t stop the couple from tying the knot just three months after they met in a sweet secret ceremony. Prior to Brendan’s move, the duo was splitting their time between NYC and Nashville, but it seems as though they’re gonna stick down south for a while.
