There’s a chance Miranda Lambert could be headed down the aisle again soon. Things are supposedly going so well for Lambert and her boyfriend, Anderson East, that he’s ready for them to become Mr. and Mrs.
According to E! Online, East is more than ready to marry his girlfriend of nearly a year. A source told the outlet that if it was up to the “Satisfy Me” singer, “he would marry Miranda today.” East and the “Vice” singer aren’t engaged yet, but E!’s source said their family and friends think it’s only a “matter of time” before he proposes to her.
“Miranda is very happy with Anderson. They have gotten very close,” the source said. “Her friends think this is the guy for her.” East recently confessed his love for Lambert in a sweet Instagram post to celebrate her 33rd birthday. E! also reported that he threw her a “special celebration” and showered her with “very thoughtful” gifts. “Even when it’s not her birthday he spoils her in his way,” the source said. “He tells Miranda all the time how pretty and amazing she is and how he is lucky to have her as his lady.”
Last week, Lambert took to Instagram to lash out at critics who left negative comments on a photo she posted of her and East at the CMA Awards. The country music superstar didn’t reveal exactly which comments upset her, but some of the things critics wrote included remarks about how she looked happier with her ex-husband, Blake Shelton. “Last night I was all dolled up and ‘out on the town’ with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville. I was excited about the night and posted a picture,” Lambert posted. “Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative. Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language. What a bunch of bull s---.”
While it’s speculated that Lambert and East want to get married soon, Shelton has also been facing rumors that he could be headed down the aisle. Us Weekly recently reported that Shelton and Gwen Stefani are “starting to finalize” their wedding arrangements. Although the “Sangria” singer and Stefani aren’t engaged yet, the source said they hope to get married “before the end of the year.”
