Miranda wrote: "In honor of Valentine's Day I wanted to share some news. I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you Brendan Mcloughlin for loving me for.... me," alongside a red love heart emoji.

Talking about the decision to keep their union a secret, with People Magazine, Miranda said: "I was married before, and it was a huge wedding, and everything was very public. So was my divorce, [I] learned then that it's not for everybody else. This is my actual life. With Brendan, I made it a point to keep it as private as I could for as long as I could."

Who is Miranda's famous ex-husband?

Before marrying her adoring husband Brendan, Miranda was married to Gwen Stefani's now-husband and fellow country singer, Blake Shelton. The pair, who started dating in 2006, tied the knot in 2011 before divorcing in 2015.

Miranda and Blake didn't have the most amicable break-up and since then fans have speculated that certain song lyrics and even full tracks could be referring to the breakdown of their relationship, but no one can be sure as neither party has confirmed it.

Does Miranda have any children?

Whilst the 39-year-old star is yet to have any children of her own, she is the doting stepmother to Brendan's four-year-old son Landon. Talking about her family she told People Magazine: "I've got an amazing husband and a beautiful farm outside of Nashville."
