Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton Go On Joyride After Gavin Rossdale Returns To Nanny Mindy Mann [Report]

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, stars of The Voice, have wrapped filming on Season 9 and continue to flaunt their romance throughout Los Angeles. While the couple’s new romance will no longer be seen on the show, as Gwen Stefani will soon be replaced by Christina Aguilera, she and Shelton haven’t cooled off one bit.

As People Magazine revealed on December 17, Gwen Stefani and Shelton were recently spotted enjoying a ride together through Los Angeles, and as they sat side by side, Gwen Stefani was seen gazing into her boyfriend’s eyes.

Gwen Stefani and Shelton began dating this fall after she parted ways with husband Gavin Rossdale after 13 years, and he announced his divorce from Miranda Lambert after four years. Gwen Stefani and Shelton had starred alongside one another on The Voice before, but it wasn’t until Season 9 that the two became romantic. Then, in November, after raising questions with their Halloween PDA, the couple confirmed their relationship with an outing in Nashville, during which they were photographed holding hands.

Since confirming their relationship, Gwen Stefani and Shelton have been faced with a number of rumors, including a possible pregnancy, engagement and upcoming wedding. Most recently, a source told In Touch Weekly, via Hollywood Life, the couple was excited to take the next step in their romance after Gwen Stefani’s divorce from Rossdale is finalized.

According to the magazine source, they are planning on “eloping once [Gwen Stefani’s] divorce is finalized in the New Year.”

“[Gwen Stefani] has some very strong feeling for Blake,” a source told In Touch Weekly, and Shelton has “assured her” that he has “true feelings for her,” too.

In other Gwen Stefani news, her ex-husband, Rossdale, has reportedly returned to his alleged mistress, Mindy Mann. As Us Weekly reported in November, Rossdale and Mann were involved in a three-year affair during his and Stefani’s 13-year marriage. According to a source, Gwen Stefani discovered shocking messages sent between the alleged pair about meeting for sex in February, but when she confronted Rossdale with the accusations, he insisted their conversations were nothing more than flirtation, and the two remained married until this past August.

While Mann kept a low profile in the weeks after her and Rossdale’s rumored romance was reported, she has since returned to work at Pint Size Kids and was said to have been visited by Rossdale just a short time ago.

“Rossdale’s car — a Range Rover — was spotted Tuesday outside a daycare center said to be owned by Mann,” the International Business Times reported earlier this month. “Mann runs the business named Pint Size Kids in Sherman Oaks, California, that she reportedly opened using a loan from [Gwen Stefani] and Rossdale.

According to the report, the person who took photos of Rossdale’s vehicle told the Daily Mail Online that the person behind the wheel was Rossdale.

“The car pulled up in front of the center, but nobody got out for half an hour,” the site reported.

Gwen Stefani “is all about empowering other women, and thought it was a good investment,” a source told Radar Online of her decision to allegedly loan Mann money to start Pint Size Kids. “But it was around the time that Pint Size Kids opened that Gavin and Mindy became romantically involved. Gavin would often bring his kids there to take enrichment classes. Things got very intense with Gavin and Mindy very quickly.”
