Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are happy and in love after over two years together, but the two have reportedly put the ideas of getting married and having a baby on hold – for now. The couple has decided not to focus on those things for the time being, but it turns out that their struggle to conceive has made them stronger than ever.
Stefani and Shelton have been trying for a baby for over a year, but now the No Doubt singer feels that maybe it’s not meant to be. However, that doesn’t mean the 48-year-old’s love for Shelton has changed.
The couple has also decided to put wedding plans on the back burner, and instead, the couple is just going to enjoy their time together and with her three sons, Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4.
Shelton is extremely loving towards the boys, and his devotion to her children is what prompted them to try for a baby together. He has always wanted a child of his own, but he is on board with Stefani when it comes to the idea of putting trying for a baby on hold. He is at peace with the prospect of not having his own biological children.
Even though they’ve decided to stop trying, it doesn’t mean there are problems in the relationship. And, if a baby happens naturally, they would be thrilled.
“Their relationship has grown and matured into a stable, loving union,” explains one insider. “The need to get married and have kids isn’t the priority it once was.”
The couple has now settled into an “easy and effortless love” together, and that includes spending time on his Oklahoma ranch and hanging out with Shelton’s friends and their wives.
Stefani has also made multiple appearances in the crowd at Shelton’s recent concerts, and when she is there, he makes it a point to sing in her direction. And sometimes, he even shares details about their life together.
Recently, he told a crowd that the couple was excited to get home because their dog was about to have puppies.
Shelton recently started a short tour with Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce, and Trace Adkins, and Eldredge says that when it comes to touring with Shelton, you must be ready to party. He also says that he is looking forward to hanging out with Shelton at something other than an awards show.
Eldredge says he looks forward to spending time with The Voice coach and watching his show. And maybe, he will get to meet Gwen Stefani, too.
