It must have been fate! Miranda Lambert revealed to her followers on February 16 that she secretly married Brendan McLoughlin, and now, everyone is wondering how exactly the newlyweds met. It turns out that Busy Philipps had a theory: The blonde beauty may have come across the New York Police Department officer when she made an appearance on Good Morning AmericaWatch the video above to see how they met and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

When the Dawson’s Creek alum, 39, heard the news that Miranda, 35, tied the knot, she thought that Brendan, 27, looked familiar. She found an old photo on her camera roll of the Staten Island native that she took in December 2017 while she was outside of the GMA studios in New York City.

“This is the hot cop that Miranda Lambert married,” the Illinois native posted on her Instagram Stories on Sunday, February 17. “I have this in my photos OBVI.”

The Busy Tonight host wondered if Miranda and her man met when she appeared on the morning talk show since Brendan has been spotted there a lot. “Here’s my question: did Miranda Lambert meet the hot cop doing GMA … outside of GMA?” she said on Instagram. “I’ve only seen him there … multiple times.”

The “Little Red Wagon” crooner sang on GMA with her band, Pistol Annies, in November 2018, so the timing would make sense since they got married rather quickly.

On February 18, Busy couldn’t help but tell her followers that she cracked the case as to how Miranda met her hubby. “I called it first,” she wrote. “My work here is done.”

The Texas native revealed on Saturday, February 16, that she is off the market. “In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share some news,” she revealed on Instagram. “I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you, Brendan McLoughlin, for loving me for …. me. #theone.”

Miranda was previously married to country star Blake Shelton for four years before they divorced in July 2015. She then went on to date Anderson East and Evan Felker, but neither relationship worked out.

Here’s to hoping that the Grammy winner found her happily ever after!
