Miranda Lambert has had an eventful week at her latest concerts.

Just days after getting engaged to a 6-year-old fan named Sebastian, the 32-year-old country singer found herself in tears after a soldier held up an emotional sign at her Keeper of the Flame show in Hartford, Connecticut.

According to a report by Chicago’s US99 radio station on August 23, the sign read, “3 combat tours … [Your] voice was the last thing I listened to EVERY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!” Once Miranda Lambert saw the sign, she asked the soldier, “Really?,” before holding it up herself.

Miranda Lambert is currently in the midst of her Keeper of the Flame Tour and is also participating in Kenny Chesney’s Spread the Love Tour, throughout which she has appeared as the opening act during the majority of his show’s. Meanwhile, she’s also been busy promoting her new single, “Vice,” and preparing for the upcoming release of her new album.

In addition to her career responsibilities, Miranda Lambert as been spending time with her boyfriend, R&B singer Anderson East, and while the couple isn’t engaged quite yet, their relationship is said to be serious as they attempt to juggle their time together with their busy careers.

In May, an E! News source spoke out about Miranda Lambert’s relationship with East, claiming the couple was looking forward to their future and discussing the possibility of living together.

“Miranda and Anderson are talking about moving in with each other,” the source shared. “It’s getting pretty serious. They want children and have shared their thoughts with each other on that subject.”

Miranda Lambert and Anderson East began dating late last year after Lambert’s July 2015 divorce from Blake Shelton and confirmed their romance with a photo on Instagram in January. In the picture, Miranda Lambert and her boyfriend were seen cuddling under a red blanket.

East has a “crazy connection” with Miranda Lambert, a second source told E! News. “Whenever they are together they act like two free spirits… Miranda adores Anderson. They understand each other. Anderson has given Miranda this confidence she hasn’t felt in some time. They are very supportive with each other and their careers.”

Miranda Lambert and Anderson East have stayed fairly private when it comes to their romance. While the couple has shared a couple of sweet photos on Instagram, Miranda Lambert has yet to speak to the press about their relationship. Still, reports claim they are quite serious and continue to enjoy one another’s company months into their romance.

“Anderson and Miranda are serious,” added the source. “They have met both sides of their families. Both their families love what they have. They seem like they are in such a great place. They spend so much time together. They are also very involved with Miranda’s animals. That’s a big part of her life and Anderson is a huge animal lover.”

As Miranda Lambert and Anderson East’s relationship continues, her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, is reportedly planning to marry his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, whom he went public with in November of last year. While the couple has yet to confirm any such news, rumors have been swirling for months and with frequent outings with Stefani’s kids, they show no signs of slowing down.

Since confirming their romance, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East have faced rumors of pregnancies, engagements and plans for a wedding, but so far, they don’t appear to be engaged, and the country singer does not look pregnant.
