Anderson East and Miranda Lambert have only been dating for about a year and a half, but for the last few months, they have been facing rumors of a possible engagement.
Most recently, a report from OK! Magazine suggested that Anderson East and Miranda Lambert allegedly became engaged earlier this month after making a joint appearance at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
“It’s incredible news,” a source gushed to the magazine, according to a Hollywood Life report on April 12. “[Miranda Lambert and Anderson East] had talked about marriage in a casual way, but she never thought it was real. But word is he popped the question right after her big night!”
As the source explained, Miranda Lambert’s “big night” took place at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 2 in Las Vegas. During the show, the country singer nabbed the award for Female Vocalist of the Year, which she’s done for the past several years.

On Instagram after the event, Anderson East shared a photo of himself and Miranda Lambert and spoke of how proud he was of his girlfriend and her talent. Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert shared a photo of the two of them on her page and thanked East for being her “handsome date” to the show.
Prior to her romance with Anderson East, Miranda Lambert was married to fellow country singer Blake Shelton for four years. While it may have taken her a while to get over the end of their marriage, the OK! Magazine insider claimed she is finally ready to move forward with her life with Anderson East.
“[Miranda Lambert] says she’s finally over Blake,” the insider continued. “Even though Anderson’s younger, she feels he’s more mature than Blake ever was. He makes her feel so secure.”
OK! Magazine went on to reveal that Miranda Lambert and Anderson East were hoping to tie the knot during a ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee, this fall after she completes her tour. Still, the couple’s alleged engagement has yet to be confirmed.
“[Miranda Lambert’s] always wanted a family, she’s ready to live her dream,” the source added.
