Miranda Lambert shocked everyone last week when she announced that she had secretly married NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin. And, according to a new report, there is one person who is quite skeptical about the timing of the announcement – Lambert’s ex-husband Blake Shelton.
As fans know, Shelton has been happily dating Gwen Stefani since 2015, and even though he hasn’t proposed yet, Lambert’s news didn’t bother him. An insider says he did question his ex-wife’s motives, but just because Lambert met, dated, and married a man inside of three months, that doesn’t mean Shelton is in a hurry to pop the question to his longtime girlfriend.

“Blake commented to Gwen [that] the timing of Miranda’s announcement of the marriage was certainly curious,” a source told Us Weekly. “Gwen has three children to consider, and Blake has been extremely aware of this at every step. The timing of Gwen and Blake’s wedding date is a work in progress. Just because Miranda got married in a quickie random situation doesn’t change anything for Gwen and Blake.”
Sources say that since Shelton and Lambert divorced in 2015, they have had “almost zero contact,” so he found out about Lambert’s new husband on Instagram just like the rest of the world. The news didn’t faze him because she has been “in his rearview mirror” for a long time.
An insider told People Magazine that even though they were together for nearly ten years (including four years as husband and wife), once Shelton and Lambert’s marriage ended, he moved on and has been grateful ever since.
There is no doubt that Shelton is crazy about Stefani said the source, and his focus is on her, not his ex.
Ever since they started dating nearly four years ago, rumors have swirled that Shelton and Stefani would be announcing an engagement. It hasn’t happened yet, and insiders say don’t expect it to happen anytime soon.
Stefani’s rep says that the Hollaback Girl and country superstar are going strong but heading down the aisle is not part of their immediate plans.
Lambert’s drama-filled homewrecking history did once get a curious response from Shelton on social media. When the news broke that she had dumped Anderson East for married Turnpike Troubadours singer Evan Felker, Shelton tweeted that he had taken the high road for a long time and almost gave up. But, he could finally see karma on the horizon.
Blake Shelton hasn’t publicly commented about Miranda Lambert’s surprise wedding announcement. But, it’s probably because he is busy being happy in his own relationship.
