Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton just can’t seem to dodge the persistent rumors, claiming the 46-year-old mother of three is currently pregnant with their first child. Although Shelton recently joked about the idea, claiming it was a bit early for a pregnancy, rumors continue to swirl, the latest of which claims Gwen Stefani is expecting a baby girl.
On January 25, Hollywood Take shared a report regarding Gwen Stefani and her alleged pregnancy, stating that despite Shelton’s recent jokes, the couple is expecting, and already considering the names Sedona and Flynn. The report also cites a recent rumor, claiming Gwen Stefani wasn’t pregnant with one child, but expecting twins!
The shocking report was first mentioned on the cover of OK! Magazine, seen below, which also suggested the couple was headed for a shotgun wedding.

Gwen Stefani was also said to be pregnant on the cover of In Touch Weekly, which suggested she was already craving Mexican food and ice cream. However, rather than note that she and Shelton were headed for marriage, the magazine’s cover claimed their wedding had been delayed by her ongoing divorce from Gavin Rossdale.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were married for 13 years before she filed for divorce in August 2015, months before Us Weekly‘s report, claiming he had cheated on Stefani, the mother of his three children, with their former nanny, Mindy Mann. According to a magazine source, a member of Gwen Stefani and Rossdale’s staff informed her of the rumored affair, prompting her to fire Mann on the spot. However, despite finding seemingly damning text messages sent between Rossdale and Mann, in which they made plans to meet for sex, Gwen Stefani stayed with her husband until he was believed to have ultimately come clean about the inappropriate relationship months later.
As Gwen Stefani continues to fight back against rumors of her alleged pregnancy and wedding plans, Rossdale appears to be in denial about their split. During a recent outing in Los Angeles, as reported by OK! Magazine, Gwen Stefani’s soon-to-be ex-husband was seen with his wedding ring on as he spent time with their sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 6, and baby Apollo, 1, playing football.
‘Things with Gavin are worse than ever right now,” an insider told Hollywood Life last week. “He’s doing everything he can to get her 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.”
Gwen Stefani has not yet spoken of her former partner’s relationship with Mann.
