After three years of romance, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are reportedly ready to tie the knot. Sources claim the No Doubt alum is on the verge of making the big announcement “soon” and cannot get the wedding off her mind.
During an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show last spring, Stefani confessed that she thinks about Shelton “all the time.” The insider explained that she did not want to rush down the aisle because of her three boys, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, who had to deal with her 2015 divorce from Gavin Rossdale.
“Blake has always wanted to marry Gwen,” the insider revealed, “but she’s always been extremely cautious because she has three kids to be mindful of.”
According to Us Magazine, the source claims that Stefani will announce the engagement in the near future. That could put the wedding as early as this year, though it is unclear how fast they will move forward after the announcement.
With a wedding on the way, the two are reportedly talking about having a baby as well. A source revealed that Stefani and Shelton are intent on having a child, even if that means using a surrogate.
Shelton and Stefani have allegedly been in contact with a surrogacy agency and are about to choose the woman who will have their child. Stefani understands how much it means to Shelton, who could not be happier about becoming a father.
The two have been dating now for three years. Shelton has been married several times — most recently to Miranda Lambert — but has no children of his own. Stefani was married to Rossdale for over a decade and had three children with him.
Shelton and Stefani have not commented on the engagement rumors. Although they are keeping things under wraps, they are not shy about expressing their love for all the world to see. At last year’s People’s Choice Awards, Blake Shelton surprisingly brought Gwen Stefani onstage while accepting an award and told the crowd, “I love her!”
