Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are making it clear that 2016 is the year of “Shefani.” Since confirming that they were a dating duo during The Voice last season, Gwen and Blake have been spotted canoodling everywhere from football fields to wine country, as well as both their hometowns. Now that Stefani caught the bouquet at a wedding she just attended with Shelton in Nashville, rumors are blossoming that the next step is a wedding, reported People.
According to myth, a woman who catches a bouquet at a wedding is destined to marry herself soon, and the occasion was a Nashville marriage ceremony for Amanda Craig, who is Blake’s hairstylist.
“Amanda threw the bouquet, and it hit Blake in the head and fell on the floor,” a wedding guest revealed. “Gwen picked it up!”
Also spotted in Nashville on a date at O’Charley’s restaurant, Stefani, 46, and Shelton, 39, were described as exceptionally affectionate by an observer to Us Weekly.
Canoodling in a booth on the same side, Blake and Gwen made it clear that happiness is being together.
“They were alone, pretty much all over each other,” shared the observer. “They were extremely affectionate, definitely not just cuddling. They sat on the same side of the booth, and no one bothered them at all. They looked very happy, all smiles.”
The No Doubt frontwoman and country singer have left no doubt that their romance is for real. They began their love affair in November, following his divorce from Miranda Lambert in July and her split from Gavin Rossdale in August. Since then, Shelton and Stefani have enjoyed an Arizona Cardinals game, the holiday season in Oklahoma, and California wine country.
As The Inquisitr reported, Gwen suffered through heartbreak and hard times after she discovered Rossdale had been cheating on her with the family nanny for three years. Gavin and Stefani have three little boys, and the No Doubt front woman was horrified to discover what her husband had been doing.
Baby Rumors Blossom For Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani
But now she’s found happiness with Blake, and it’s not just wedding rumors that are swirling, because a source told In Touch Weekly that Shelton is looking forward to becoming a daddy for the first time. The source also revealed that Gwen thinks it’s a girl, adding a prediction that the country crooner will give that baby girl whatever she desires.
“Blake is going to spoil her like crazy. Whatever she wants, she will get. He’s so generous with his siblings and nieces and nephews, you can only imagine what he’ll be like with his own little girl. She will have Blake wrapped around her little finger.”
Inside ‘The Voice’ Future: Stefani To Return?
As to what the future holds for The Voice coaches, with or without their first child together? Gwen currently is slated to be off The Voice as a coach next season, with Christina Aguilera rotating into her chair. That’s made Shelton a mighty unhappy camper, urging that Stefani be added onto the coaching staff as a fifth coach. So now the country crooner has solved the problem by proposing that his rocker girlfriend be brought back in the role of mentor to Team Shelton, a source told Us Weekly.
Stefani would then have a role to play on Season 10 of The Voice, answering the conundrum that Shelton had raised prior to the end of Season 9.
“I don’t want Gwen to not be on the show. Why can’t we have a fifth coach?” Blake had proposed then.
As to how Gavin Rossdale feels about the hot hook-up that Stefani is enjoying with Shelton?
“Seeing Gwen so crazy in love is killing him,” a source told Us. “He had hope that they would get back together, but knows there’s no chance of that now.”
