Country superstar Miranda Lambert and her husband Brendan McLoughlin have birthdays less than a month apart: her 37th birthday lands on Nov. 10, while he turned 29 on Oct. 14. Naturally, they used this as an excuse to say happy birthday to each other in an adorable way.
The couple and bus driver Dustin Bringham, whose birthday lands in between mid-October and mid-November, shared a custom cake representing their personalities, interests and career choices. It's shaped like a tour bus, with an airbrushed horse and the term "Giddy Up" on Lambert's side and a New York Police Department (NYPD) logo on the flip side.
"Birthday celebrations for the present, past and future. Thank you @csfranke for such a beautiful and meaningful cake @mirandalambert @db102681 back side of 30," reads McLoughlin's social media caption for his birthday cake photos.
Shelly Franke of the Sugared Kitchen in Lambert's hometown of Lindale, Texas decorated the centerpiece of the trio's birthday party. So, you know who to call for cake decorating if your heart's set on a country music-themed wedding cake for your special day.
McLoughlin, a former NYPD officer, met his country singer wife while working security for Good Morning America when the Pistol Annies last performed on the show in 2018. The couple announced on Valentine's Day 2019 that they'd secretly wed.
"Happy Birthday to my sweet husband," Lambert wrote in an Oct. 14 Instagram post. "The man I love so much with the most contagious smile. Brendan, you are a light."
For a sneak peek at Lambert and McLoughlin's life on a farm outside of Nashville, Tennessee, watch recent music video "Settling Down."
"The 'Settling Down' video is very personal to me because it was filmed at my farm and my husband got to be in the video with me," Lambert says in a press release. "My mom always called me a wild child and a homing pigeon. I always have an itch to find a new adventure, but I'm also always ready to walk through my front door. I feel like a lot of people feel that way, and 'Settling Down' tells the story of being caught between those two feelings."
