Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s love story has captured the hearts of fans since they first started dating in 2015 while working together as coaches on “The Voice.” The couple has been known to gush about each other in interviews and on social media, sharing their love with the world. After more than five years of dating, fans were eagerly waiting for the couple to tie the knot, but they kept deflecting any questions about potential engagements.
Finally, in October 2021, Shelton proposed to Stefani in a chapel he had built on his Oklahoma ranch, and the couple’s engagement became public knowledge. According to Shelton, Stefani had saved his 2020, making the proposal even more meaningful.
In July 2021, the couple exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch, officiated by Carson Daly, the host of “The Voice.” Since then, the two have been blissfully married, and they’ve even performed together, introducing each other as their husband or wife.
One of the most remarkable things about their relationship is how well Shelton has taken on the role of stepfather to Stefani’s three sons from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale. Fans have been wondering when the couple will have children of their own, and in a recent article in Life & Style Magazine, it was revealed that the couple is allegedly expecting their first child together.
Stefani and Rossdale’s relationship began in 1995 when No Doubt opened for Bush at a holiday concert. The couple got married in September 2002, but their marriage didn’t last, and they divorced in 2016. They share three boys, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
When Stefani joined “The Voice” in 2014, she met Shelton, who was finalizing his divorce from Miranda Lambert. Stefani and Shelton found solace in each other, and the relationship blossomed into a beautiful romance. The couple’s wedding day was a significant milestone not just for them but also for Shelton as he became a parent to Stefani’s sons.
Being a stepfather is a significant responsibility, and Shelton took on the challenge, admitting that it was sometimes “frightening” to juggle the roles of a buddy and a role model for the boys. While speaking to Life & Style Magazine, he said, “There is a lot of responsibility that comes with that. I’m not sure if being a stepfather is easier, harder, or not as difficult as being a biological parent.”
According to sources close to the couple, Stefani had undergone numerous IVF treatments after the couple had failed to conceive naturally. After multiple attempts, the “Sweet Escape” singer had given up hope. But, after visiting a top specialist in Los Angeles, the couple finally conceived.
“Gwen prepared herself – eating healthy, meditating, going to acupuncture sessions. Gwen has done it everything,” the source said. The couple is now focusing on family life, especially with the arrival of a new member. Shelton has already started preparing for the baby, building a crib, doing some nursery DIY, and even buying a pink cowboy hat and cowboy boots. Fans spotted Stefani’s baby bump on the red carpet of the NYWICI Matrix Awards on Oct. 26, 2022, further confirming the news.
Fans have been excitedly congratulating the couple on their impending arrival. Shelton’s desire for a daughter is no secret, and fans have been eagerly waiting for more news. With new images of Stefani’s baby bump emerging online, fans can’t wait for the couple to welcome their first child together. Regardless of the baby’s gender, Stefani and Shelton are sure to be fantastic parents and will undoubtedly continue to share their love.
