Things are moving pretty quickly between Miranda Lambert and her boyfriend, Anderson East. Lambert has reportedly already been through any relationship’s first major test: meeting the parents. She traveled back to East’s hometown so he could introduce her to them and see whether or not they all hit it off.
According to Us Weekly, the meeting went off without a hitch. Everyone met in Athens, Alabama, where his family lives, and got along great. It’s always a good sign that things are going well in a relationship when the parents approve.
Lambert isn’t the only one being tested, however. She has been bringing East around her entire friend group to make sure he fits in, and a source says that they all love him. Can you blame them, though? Just give one listen to “Devil in Me” and you’d fall in love with him, too.
The couple, which was made Instagram official back in January, has been enjoying themselves all over Nashville, where they both live. It is a nice change for Lambert who had to battle ex-husband Blake Shelton’s rising fame everywhere they went. Friends say that when Lambert and East go out on the town, no one bothers them and they can live a relatively normal life. That’s a stark contrast from Shelton’s new love life with girlfriend Gwen Stefani, who are starring in a hit show together. But maybe the vastly different lifestyles are what Lambert and Shelton were looking for and their new significant others are just what they need.
Either way, both new couples are definitely enjoying their budding new relationships and have stayed away from drama, so kudos all around.
Now, when do we start asking Lambert and East for a duet?
