When will the Gwen Stefani pregnancy rumors end? Apparently, not anytime soon. Although Gwen Stefani’s rep has denied that she and Blake Shelton are expecting a child together to Gossip Cop on multiple occasions, the rumors continue to run rampant, and recently, Shelton joked about the ongoing rumors.
“I think it’s awfully early to be talking about that, don’t you?” Shelton responded when asked about his and Gwen Stefani’s possible plans for a family, according to a report by Entertainment Tonight earlier this week.
There have also been reports claiming Gwen Stefani and Shelton were headed for a quickie wedding due to her pregnancy, because Gwen Stefani is a good Catholic girl, and wouldn’t want to welcome a child, or children, out of wedlock. However, on January 20, Gwen Stefani’s spokesperson confirmed to Gossip Cop that she was not pregnant with twins, as OK! Magazine claimed, and was not getting married.

Gwen Stefani’s boyfriend also joked about her alleged pregnancy in November, when a report claimed Gwen Stefani was expecting just weeks into their romance. At that time, Shelton responded to a fan, who had joked about his alleged “love child” by saying he was very “fertile.”

Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani’s ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, has reportedly re-hired their former nanny, Mindy Mann, whom he allegedly had a three-year affair with during his 13-year marriage to Gwen Stefani. As Us Weekly revealed in November of last year, a member of Gwen Stefani’s staff informed her of Rossdale and Mann’s relationship, leading her to discover text messages sent between the pair.
Although Gwen Stefani fired Mann on the spot after learning of her alleged behavior with her then-husband, Rossdale denied the texts were anything more than flirtation, despite one message including a plan to meet for sex, and the two remained married until months later, when Rossdale was believed to have copped to the affair.
Following news of his alleged infidelities, Rossdale kept a low profile for weeks, and didn’t share any new updates on his Twitter page. Then, in December, he reportedly met up with Mann at her day care center in Los Angeles, and now, he has allegedly re-hired her as a caretaker for his sons.
‘Things with Gavin are worse than ever right now,” an insider told Hollywood Life on January 21. “He’s doing everything he can to get [Gwen Stefani] upset, including bringing Mindy around the kids. She and Gavin have a joint custody agreement, so there’s nothing she can do about his choice to keep Mindy around, but it’s a hard pill for her to swallow. Gavin’s argument is that the kids still have a bond with Mindy, and he doesn’t see why she can’t see them.”
“[Gwen Stefani] knows Gavin is doing this to get back at her because he doesn’t like Blake,” the source added. “She is trying her best not to let it get to her.”
As for what’s next for Gwen Stefani, she and Shelton continue to travel with one another, and soon, they will return to the set of NBC’s The Voice for the series’ upcoming 10th season. Although it was first believed that Gwen Stefani wouldn’t be appearing on the show’s new installment, due to Christina Aguilera reclaiming her coaching spot, she has since been re-added to the show as a mentor for Team Shelton. Us Weekly reported news of Gwen Stefani’s return to the NBC show earlier this month.
