The pair, dressed in wedding attire, had big smiles in one of the photos as Lambert cuddled her new hubby. In another, the couple gazed at each other as she held a bouquet of flowers.

But the wedding vows meant more than just becoming a wife for Lambert. McLoughlin has a 3-month-old child from a previous relationship, making the country star a new stepmom, according to the outlet.
The singer – formerly married to country star Blake Shelton – revealed in August that she was “happily single” following her split with ex-boyfriend Evan Felker, reported Fox News.
“Love is a hard road sometimes and it’s been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I’m definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I’ve had some really good songs come out of it,” Lambert told The Tennessean over the summer amid the breakup. “You’ve got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts.”
