Looks like love truly is in the air for Miranda Lambert!
Shortly after it was speculated that the country superstar, 32, was dating 28-year-old singer Anderson East (whose real name is Michael Cameron Anderson), his stepfather Randall Ennis exclusively confirmed their romance to In Touch Weekly!

Mr. Ennis confessed he knew of his stepson’s relationship before it made headlines, adding they’ve been seeing each other “for a couple of weeks.”

“Michael’s an awesome kid,” he told to In Touch. “He’s got his head on straight and knows what he wants in life… He’s just an amazing kid. He’s outgoing, he just never meets a stranger. He’s very polite.”
Hopefully he’ll use those manners to introduce his stepdad to the new lady in his life — as Mr. Ennis admitted he didn’t know much about the former Mrs. Blake Shelton!
“To be honest with you, I don’t really follow country music so I really didn’t even know who she was,” he revealed.
Fortunately, we have a feeling there will be plenty of time for the two to get acquainted with one another; when asked if Anderson was the kind of guy who would take a woman home to meet his mom, Mr. Ennis gushed, “Oh I’m sure he will!”
