Is Gwen Stefani expecting her third child? Since the 46-year-old singer began dating Blake Shelton, her co-star on The Voice, rumors have been swirling in regard to the possibility.
Gwen Stefani went through a very public divorce in August 2015, when she and Gavin Rossdale announced they were parting ways after 13 years and three children together, Kingston, 9; Zuma, 7; and Apollo, 1. Then, just months later, an Us Weekly report surfaced, claiming that the end of Gwen Stefani’s marriage was the result of her former partner’s alleged three-year affair with their nanny, Mindy Mann.
After discovering the reported news regarding her then-husband in February of last year, Gwen Stefani fired Mann, but chose to stay with Rossdale for several months until he allegedly came clean about his wrongdoings and she filed for divorce.
Although the reported ordeal was likely quite traumatic for Gwen Stefani, she remained positive, choosing to focus on her career and her children, and within months, she and Shelton struck up a romance, which they confirmed in early November. Since then, the couple has been traveling the country together, most recently visiting Gwen Stefani’s family in Anaheim, California.

Just weeks into her relationship with Shelton, OK! Magazine published a report, claiming Gwen Stefani was pregnant, leaving Shelton’s ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, whom he divorced in July 2015, “disgusted.” According to the report, Gwen Stefani and Shelton didn’t want to just date — they wanted to be a family.
While Gwen Stefani didn’t directly address the report, her boyfriend, Shelton, did so on Twitter, joking with fans that he was “fertile.”

Although the OK! Magazine story buzz died down in the weeks after it was shared, a second claim has since hit the web, courtesy of In Touch Weekly, claiming Gwen Stefani is already craving ice cream and Mexican food. The magazine’s source also alleged Gwen Stefani and Shelton’s wedding plans had been derailed by the unexpected pregnancy.
After In Touch Weekly published their Gwen Stefani pregnancy claim, the singer’s rep set the record straight regarding the story, claiming it was completely “untrue.”
As for what’s next for the couple, a source claims Gwen Stefani and Shelton are looking forward to potentially moving in together.
“[Gwen Stefani] and Blake are thinking about buying a love nest! Gwen loves Oklahoma and she actually thinks it would be a great place for her boys to grow up,” a source told Hollywood Life on January 4. “However, every time she and Blake talk about moving in, they always seem to decide that it’s too soon for both of them. That said, all the traveling, hotels, and suitcases are becoming a major inconvenience, so they’re trying to think of it less as moving in together and more of buying a convenient place for them to hang out!”
“Gwen obviously has her boys to worry about, but they absolutely adore Blake! He’s like a big kid himself so they kind of think of him as like the 4th brother. He loves to play video games with them, put them on his shoulders, and he even built a fort with them!”
According to the report, the next step for Gwen Stefani and Shelton is to move in together because Shelton wants to spend more time with Gwen Stefani and loves the idea of sharing a home with her and her sons.
Earlier today, seemingly in response to the constant rumors regarding their relationship, Gwen Stefani and Shelton shared the following Twitter exchange.
