Who Is Jackie Bruno? New Details About Miranda Lambert's Husband's Ex-Fiancé

Miranda Lambert recently shocked fans when she revealed that she had married New York City police officer Brendan McLoughlin in surprise wedding on February 16th. Unlike her past high profile relationships, the 35-year-old country crooner kept this relationship completely under wraps. We wish the newlyweds good luck and it appears they are going to need it because it seems her 27-year-old husband has some secrets of his own. A woman named Carol is claiming that McLoughlin got another woman pregnant while he was engaged to her daughter, Jackie Bruno. We've written about Miranda's tendency to get into a new relationship before leaving her current one as well as about her husband stealing ways, so maybe Lambert and McLoughlin are perfect for one another! Regardless, is this a case of an almost mother-in-law avenging her daughter or is there more to this rumor? And who is Jackie Bruno?

1. The details

Miranda Lambert's new husband Brendan was engaged to 24-year-old Staten Island, New York native Jackie Bruno in the summer of 2018. At the time, she was playing professional soccer in Sweden. She returnedto New York after she got injured and found out about her fiancés extracurricular activities, if you know what we mean.

2. The other woman

Once Jackie was back in the United States, she got a phone call from another woman named Kaihla Rettinger. According to Jackie's mother Carol, the woman told her that she'd been having an affair with Brendan. Apparently, before Jackie left for Sweden he was begging Jackie to marry him — and he allegedly already knew this other woman was pregnant with his baby. Carol told In Touch that Miranda should watch her back. “Yes, she definitely married a cheater, absolutely. A no-good cheater." Brendan and his ex Kaihla welcomed their baby, a son, to the world in November 2018.

3. To be clear...

Brendan McLoughlin dumped the mother of his newborn son to date and marry country music superstar Miranda Lambert. He got that woman pregnant while he was engaged to marry another woman. This guy is a living, breathing, walking, talking country song. We sure hope Miranda has a pre-nup.

5. Miranda's Valentine's day tribute
