Miranda Lambert is usually one to shy away from the media, but on Sunday, she decided to make an exception for her boyfriend, Anderson East’s birthday — and fans are so happy that she did.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Lambert uploaded an adorable picture of herself and East sharing a kiss. She captioned the shot with, “Happy Birthday to my favorite ‘Bama’ boy! @andersoneast :@bfluke #candidkisses #withtheband#tourlove #rolltide #&erson #TexasBama.”
Public displays of affection are incredibly rare for Lambert, who usually chooses to distance herself from such things (she even told Entertainment Weekly that she prefers to keep some mystery), and if we’re not mistaken, this is the first picture she has shared of herself and East getting lovey — and they’ve been dating for a good few months since making their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards in April — which is probably why there’s been an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the post.
“You truly deserve so much happiness!! Thank you for making such amazing music!” hmw1210 gushed.
Wcthbs shared similar thoughts, writing, “you deserve all the happiness in the world love you!”
“I hope this man knows how good he’s got it to be with you. You deserve the best!” aclowe13 commented.
And yes, there are still some fans comparing Lambert’s new relationship to her last one (ex-husband Blake Shelton), and the comment section is littered with thoughts sizing up the two men, including one from airgunguy, who wrote, “Happy birthday to Mr.East! So glad to see you with somebody good after that lout Sheldon got his walking papers. You’re better with anderson anyways!”
We’re pleased to see Miranda Lambert looking so happy, and with all the reports about Shelton and Gwen Stefani that are constantly in the media, speaking about Lambert’s happiness makes a very welcome change of pace.
