Babies are on Blake Shelton’s mind, and he would love to share the wonderful experience with Gwen Stefani, but he is aware of all the preparation that comes with that dream.
The pair has been in love and delighting fans of The Voice since 2015. Their supporters are always poking the pair about when will they get married and have children.
A source told Hollywood Life that Blake loves Gwen’s sons — Kingston, 12, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4 — and is not in a rush to have another one because he knows what it entails for her mentally and physically. And he is aware that there are other options.
The insider shared: “Blake has had constant thoughts of being a father, and when it gets to a fever pitch, he brings himself back to earth and decides against it. The reason for that is that he has his hands full with Gwen’s kids and he is enjoying how that is going.”
The family friend added: “He feels that it might be cool to be a father later in life kind of like how George Clooney did I.He knows certain preparations would have to be made especially if he wanted Gwen’s child. It might go through surrogate or adoption by that time, but all those options are very much on the table and have been talked about.”
It is also being claimed that the duo’s careers are holding them back for the moment.
The family friend went on to say: “With Gwen’s Vegas residency and Blake’s constant touring and duties with The Voice there really isn’t any time to get married. And instead of getting engaged and waiting forever to get married they want to be in a spot where they can do both quick and the way they want to do it.”
The friend concluded by: “Their careers just need a bit of a break before that happens and they aren’t interested in slowing down right now. So they just have to settle down to settle down.”
If Blake has to wait 14 more years like George to have children, he might have to take a page from Kim Kardashian’s book and call on a surrogate.
