According to some reports, Gwen Stefani has, unfortunately, suffered a miscarriage and that affected her a lot emotionally. The singer and her country crooner boyfriend Blake Shelton wished to be parents very much, but their plans have been shattered.
Now, close friends are worried the tragedy may have damaged Gwen to an even greater extent than you’d assume in this situation.
‘It was really hard for her. Especially since she and Blake had tried to have a baby for at least a year-and-a-half!’
When it finally happened, and they got pregnant, it was even dubbed a ‘miracle baby,’ but sadly, the happiness was short-lived.
Stefani found out about the loss during a recent visit with her obstetrician but refuses to open up about the tragedy.
‘She was crushed when the ultrasound technician was unable to detect a heartbeat!’ our insider said.
To make sure the baby was not still alive, the medics did a number of tests but their initial suspicion was unfortunately confirmed – ‘Gwen had miscarried.’
During the in vitro fertilization process, all of the fertility drugs she needed to use eventually took a toll on the singer emotionally.
‘Gwen’s 48 and was very insecure about not being able to give Blake a baby. She knows that would never be a problem for his former wife Miranda Lambert because she is only 34! Now she feels like she cannot compete at all,’ the source explained.
Even though she is devastated, Gwen decided not to undergo any more fertility treatments.
While Blake is totally Okay with not having children on his own, Stefani was affected a lot by the miscarriage.
‘They are not even discussing surrogacy anymore. They have even put all their marriage plans on hold,’ the same source dished.
