Who Is Kaihla Rettinger? New Details About Miranda Lambert's Husband's Baby Mama

Miranda Lambert's new husband has a dating history that is almost as messy as hers. He was engaged to a professional soccer player named Jackie Bruno just months before he met and married Lambert. He also had gotten another woman — not his then-fiancé — pregnant. That woman, Kaihla Rettinger, gave birth to Brendan McLoughlin's son just three days after the NYPD cop met Miranda Lambert. Jackie Bruno's mother told Us Weekly that Rettinger called her daughter to tell her she was pregnant with McLoughlin's baby. At the time, Jackie had just returned from playing soccer in Sweden. Rettinger was seven months pregnant at the time. Who is Kaihla Rettinger?

Neither Rettinger or McLoughlin have commented publicly on when their relationship ended but People reported that the couple spent Thanksgiving together. A source close to McLoughlin told the magazin that they suspected he was with Rettinger and Lambert at the same time as he has a history of cheating. Lambert and McLoughlin got married in January. 

5. Miranda Lambert, stepmom

Reportedly, Miranda Lambert is eager to be a stepmom. We don't know, however, how Kaihla Rettinger feels about her son's famous stepmom. Rettinger appears to have deleted her Facebook page. Her IG is private. A source close to Lambert told Entertainment Tonight that the country star is ready for kids of her own. “Miranda and Brendan both want kids. She never felt ready to have children until she met Brendan and now she’s excited to be a stepmom. She even says it’s great practice for when she has a baby.”
