Family (Husband and Children)
Amber Cochran first met her future husband through a church youth group in the year 2003. At that time, Gilbert was a hell-raising youth and also had an addiction to alcohol and other substances. He was thus sentenced to do community service in a church that Cochran happened to attend. The two got talking and became friends. They subsequently started dating and were together for the next five years. Their relationship was, however, a turbulent one as they broke up several times during the five year period.
The problem they had was majorly due to Gilbert’s addictions. Even though Cochran loved him with all her heart, she wasn’t prepared to marry someone addicted to alcohol. She, therefore, summoned up the courage to end the relationship and the couple went their separate ways in 2008. They remained apart for the next five years during which they worked on improving their lives. The pre-destined lovers reconnected in 2013 and subsequently rekindled their romance. They got engaged in October 2014 and tied the knot on the 28th of June 2015 in their hometown of Jefferson.
Since tying the knot, the couple has remained strong and are one of the loveliest couples in country music. Amber Cochran and her husband have one son together, his name is Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert and he was born in November 2017. The couple has also announced that they are set to welcome a baby girl in September 2019. It must be noted that it has not all been a bed of roses for the couple. When they wanted to start a family, they struggled with fertility issues and the doctors told them that they may have to resort to IVF. They, therefore, decided to give it a break and as fate would have it, they discovered that they were expecting.
Amber Cochran’s Height
Cochran’s height, as well as other body measurements, are not yet available. However, a quick glance at her will reveal that she is of average height and has a petite build. Her husband, on the other hand, is one hunk of a guy. He is 6 feet tall (1.8m) and weighs 82 kg (181 lb). He also sports a beard and has a liberal amount of tattoos covering his body. All these have helped to cement his reputation as a country outlaw.
Even though Cochran’s romance with Gilbert has been the stuff of fairy tales, there are indications that all may not be as it seems. Several reports have suggested that Amber Cochran was previously married to a college boyfriend named Brock Roland. They tied the knot in November 2012 and were living happily until Gilbert came back into the picture in late 2013.
Cochran started spending more time in her home town and eventually left her husband altogether. She thereafter filed for divorce in March 2014 citing mental and physical abuse. Roland counter-filed for divorce on grounds of adultery. The divorce was finalized in October 2014 and Cochran got engaged to Gilbert that same month. The timeline of the whole saga has made many to suggest that she cheated on her former husband with Gilbert.
