“Blake asked [Gwen Stefani] what she was thinking and Gwen just blurted out, ‘Let’s get married’!” an insider told In Touch Weekly magazine last month, according to a Hollywood Life report. “Blake didn’t even blink and said, ‘Let’s do it’! That’s how it started and now they’re not looking back.”
At the time, Gwen Stefani’s relationship with Shelton was quite new, and the two hadn’t confirmed the news until just about one month prior to their rumored engagement. However, the magazine’s source claimed Gwen Stefani and her alleged fiancé were very serious about their relationship, and planning a quickly wedding. According to the source, Gwen Stefani and Shelton, who have each been married once before, weren’t interested in anything elaborate or over-the-top.
“They’ve agreed that just disappearing for a few weeks would be ideal. They’re thinking someplace very laid-back and tropical, like Mexico,” the source claimed.
Also in December, a report surfaced, claiming Gwen Stefani and Shelton were planning to move in together. Currently, Shelton calls Oklahoma home, but because Stefani and her boys live in California full-time, Shelton has been spending much more time there.
Not long after, sources began claiming that Gwen Stefani was not only engaged, but also pregnant, and despite a couple of denials, the rumors continue to swirl. In fact, in the latest report, Gwen Stefani is said to be expecting twins with Shelton as she prepares to wed the country star.
On January 20, OK! Magazine claimed that while Gwen Stefani’s alleged pregnancy was unexpected, both she and Shelton were up to the challenge, as they love kids. That said, Gwen Stefani wasn’t okay with welcoming children with Shelton out of wedlock, and was pressuring him to tie the knot prior to the rumored twins’ births. And while many men may be put off by the idea of a woman pressuring them into marriage, Shelton was said to be all for it.
“The loved-up pair are planning an April wedding on the grounds of Blake’s Oklahoma estate!” the magazine insider explained.
The source added that while Gwen Stefani, who is already mom to three sons from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale, was hoping for the twins to be girls, her country singer boyfriend wanted boys.
“But truthfully, they’d be happy either way. They just want healthy kids,” the source explained.

Prior to her relationship with Shelton, Gwen Stefani went through heartache in early 2015, when her then-husband, Rossdale, was reportedly caught cheating on her with the nanny, Mindy Mann. According to an Us Weekly report in November, Gwen Stefani found out about the rumored three-year affair from another member of her staff, and fired Mann on the spot. However, after Rossdale denied the affair, claiming messages sent between him and Mann, which included their plans for sex, were nothing more than flirtation, Gwen Stefani chose to stay in the marriage until he was believed to have come clean months later.
Gwen Stefani is expected to return to The Voice for season 10 next month as a mentor for Blake Shelton’s team.
