If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

Miranda Lambert just announced the happy news that she secretly married Brendan McLoughlin, and PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at the newly-minted couple stepping out.

The pair were spotted out in New York City’s SoHo district on Saturday, smiling as they walked and held hands outside of a store promoting Valentine’s Day deals. In the images, the couple’s wedding bands are on full display, with Lambert also wearing what looks to be a stunning solitaire diamond engagement ring.

“They looked happy and natural holding hands and strolling on the sidewalk,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE of the two, who were “stopping to look in windows and smiling.” And Lambert, who was proudly sporting the new hardware, couldn’t have seemed happier: “She was beaming and protectively holding her ring finger,” added the onlooker.
