When Miranda Lambert got married to New York police officer Brendan McLoughlin back in January, they each gained more than just a spouse.

Along with Miranda came her 13 dogs, and for McLoughlin, he’s the father of a 7-month-old baby boy named Landon.

“I got the dogs, you got the kid, we can mix and mingle. It’s going to be great,” said Miranda in an interview with Extra. However, when asked if she sees more kids in their future, Miranda said, “I mean, what did I say earlier? Puppies are great birth control. Not to mention a stepson. It’s great practice but I still get to go into rock and roll mode which I really enjoy.”

“My stepson is amazing,” Miranda added. “I’m loving that whole phase, and I’ve raised a million dogs, so I feel like I’ve got that part of my womanly/motherly thing is full, so this is a whole new journey. It’s great.”

It doesn’t look like the couple, who split their time between New York and Nashville, will be adding to their family any time soon. Well… unless she adopts another puppy which is entirely possible. In fact, it’s downright probable.

Miranda also debuted a brand new song at CMA Fest this past weekend. A red-hot country/punk rock jam called “Locomotive.”
