Country star Loretta Lynn said ‘I do’ to Kid Rock over the weekend in a playful ceremony.
The random encounter took place when the 88-year-old was watching her son Ernest and his wife Crystal renew their vows.
But it seems the legendary singer wanted to get in on the fun as she ended up ‘tying the knot’ with rocker Kid Rock.
Loretta revealed all on Instagram as she shared snaps and wrote: ‘What a weekend! My Ernie & Crystal renewed their vows this weekend. It was beautiful and everything it should be.
‘Marriage isn’t always easy–heck it’s not even always pretty, but love holds you together and you push through the bad days to enjoy the good ones. I’m so proud of them and wish them years of happiness.’
She continued: ‘Things got crazy then–my boy @kidrock was there and we’ve always teased about getting ourselves married. Well, the preacher was already there so we had some fun with it.
‘Sorry girls, he’s taken now! #gottahavesomefun #88andfeelinggreat #laugh #tabloidfodder #cougar @lorettalynnranchofficial.’
Lynn’s granddaughter Tayla Lynn also posted some photos from the surprise wedding.
She wrote in the caption: ‘This weekend I had the pleasure of helping my Dad and StepMom plan their VOW RENEWAL. They hosted a “HILLBILLY SOIRÉE w/an elegant flair”…
‘As they finished their dance to “Look at Us”, Having their bestie, Kid Rock, come out to officiate the ceremony and saying their vows to each other they turned the attention to my grandmother.
‘Bob (Kid Rock) was about to sing a song when BAM 💥 a preacher walks out on stage. (Insert our bestie Anthony Sims).’
She continued: ‘They turn the lights to Kid and Memaw. Now you must understand how close Kid and Memaw have gotten. Like they adore each other. They joke around all the time about getting married and saying to heck with the rest of em.
‘So Dad and Crystal decide to make that happen! They have the preacher announce that he’s ready to do the vows now! Memaw and Kid both become giddy. Like school kids. They were so caught off guard but both so happy.’
Tayla added: ‘They played along. (Cause obv it’s a joke) Unc (Tim Cobb) even had the veil ready. We all Laughed, sang, hugged. It was a moment last night in the midst of the world turning sideways where love and joy were absolutely shared.
‘I honor my Daddy and Crystal today. To their love, their devotion and their long lives together. Thank you so much for loving our family.’
