Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are one of the cutest couples in Hollywood. From the start of their romance in 2015, when they were both coaches on “The Voice,” to their regular social media posts about one another, where they frequently express their love for one another, the couple has shared a charming high-profile romance for over seven years.
After dating for more than five years and regularly gushing about each other in interviews and on social media, it became a significant subject whether they’d ever get married, with the couple frequently having to deflect queries about any alleged engagements. Shelton then proposed to Stefani in October 2021 inside a chapel he’d constructed himself on his Oklahoma ranch. The couple’s engagement became public, with Shelton remarking on Instagram that Stefani saved his 2020.
The couple married in July 2021 at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch, officiated by none other than Carson Daly, the host of “The Voice.” Since then, the couple has been blissfully married and even performed together while introducing the other as their husband or wife.
Although Shelton has been a fantastic and attentive stepfather to Stefani’s children with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, fans of the two singers have been wondering when the two plan to have their kid.
A December 2022 article in Life & Style Magazine disclosed a supposed significant change in the couple’s much-discussed relationship, something that their devoted admirers had anticipated. Continue reading to learn more about Stefani and Shelton’s recent activities.
Stefani’s first public relationship was with Rossdale, the band Bush’s lead vocalist and guitarist. The two met when No Doubt opened for Bush at a holiday concert in 1995. The pair married in September 2002. However, their marriage did not continue, and they divorced in 2016. Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo were their three boys.
When Stefani joined “The Voice” for its seventh season in 2014, she met Shelton, who was also finalizing his divorce from Miranda Lambert. Stefani and Shelton found peace in their shared experience, and Stefani stated that she had hope because of Shelton.
“It went from dreadful to hopeful, and you just don’t know what’s going to happen next,” Stefani told Harper’s Bazaar.
Soon after, the couple began dating, and the world watched as their friendship blossomed into a fairy-tale romance. When the two finally married, Shelton married not only Stefani but also her three sons. It was a significant step for Shelton to become a parent, but he embraced the position. According to Life & Style Magazine, it was “frightening” for Shelton to juggle the roles of buddy and role model for the three boys.
“It’s one thing for me to be with the kids all the time and be their buddy, but after a while, you have to remember that they start to listen to things you say,” he told the magazine. “There is a lot of responsibility that comes with that. I’m not sure if being a stepfather is easier, harder, or not as difficult as being a biological parent.”
It looks like Shelton might finally get the answer to his question, as it’s been reported that he will be a biological father, as Stefani, 53, is allegedly finally pregnant with their first child after numerous attempts to conceive.
An apparent source close to the couple revealed the couple’s pregnancy in a Life & Style Magazine article. According to Stefani, she wanted “nothing more than to give Blake his child.”
The source revealed that the two had failed to conceive naturally, so the “Sweet Escape” singer underwent numerous IVF treatments. However, the first attempts were futile.
“She’d given up on it because it wasn’t working and it was too emotionally grueling, but then she wanted to give it one more try,” the source furthered.
And alas, trying is indeed for the patient and prayerful. After visiting a top specialist in Los Angeles, it seems the two have finally conceived: “Gwen prepared herself – eating healthy, meditating, going to acupuncture sessions. Gwen has done it everything.”
Now, it seems like the couple is focusing on family life, especially with the arrival of a new family member. Per the source, Shelton “wants a girl,” He has already been hands-on in preparing their Oklahoma ranch – building a crib, doing some nursery DIY, and even buying a pink cowboy hat and cowboy boots.
Some eagle-eyed fans spotted the couple’s plus one on the red carpet of the NYWICI Matrix Awards on Oct. 26, 2022, as Stefani had what appeared to be a baby bump barely concealed beneath her fitted pink dress.
“Yay! I’m so happy for you both! Congratulations on increasing your family. Many blessings from our good Lord above!” a fan posted.
“Baby bump?? Blake, you’d make a great father!!” another user shared.
Now, new images of her baby belly emerged online:
She’s as beautiful as ever!
