Since their relationship was confirmed earlier this month, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have taken it to a new level. If sources are to be believed, the Voice judges have already decided to spend the holidays together.
It doesn’t come as a surprise. In recent weeks, Gwen and Blake have been seen together quite often — even outside of the Voice studio. In fact, the couple was recently seen out in Nashville holding hands, and of course, there was the whole PDA incident at Adam Levine’s Halloween party that forced Gwen and Blake to admit that they were dating.
Since then, Blake has met Gwen’s children, E! News reports, and now Gwen and Blake are ready to spend even more time together. How much time the new couple will spend together over the holidays is not clear, as the source for E! News says that Gwen would like to keep the holidays “as normal as possible” for her children with ex Gavin Rossdale.
“It’s very likely (Gwen and Blake) will be together for some parts of it, but Gwen still wants to have the holidays as normal as possible because of her kids. So Gwen may do a more traditional holiday with Gavin when their kids open up the presents, but it’s clear to her children they are not with each other in any romantic capacity.”
Stefani split from Rossdale, her husband of more than 13 years, earlier this summer. Recently, rumors have surfaced that indicate Gavin may have cheated on Gwen with the former couple’s nanny, Mindy Mann.
Hollywood Life also reported on Gwen Stefani’s holiday plans. The website’s source said something similar to the source for E! News, only the Hollywood Life source spoke to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
“Traditionally (Gwen’s kids) always spend Thanksgiving with Gwen’s family and they’re trying to keep things as normal as possible for the kids so the plan right now is to stick to that. She and the kids will have dinner at her parents’ place and then she’ll meet up with Blake.”
Like Gwen, Blake Shelton also recently split from his significant other. Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who broke up in July, were married for four years and were together for nearly a decade. Previously, Shelton was married to Kaynette Gern — whom he divorced in 2006.
According to a separate report from Hollywood Life, Gwen had a tumultuous relationship with former husband Rossdale, which included rumors of Rossdale cheating with more than just the nanny. According to the source, Stefani spent “years living through hell with Gavin,” and now Gwen deserves to have some fun with her new beau.
“If this is a rebound, then good for her. She’s living in the moment and enjoying it!”
A source for E! News echoed the comments, adding that Gwen believes the timing for the relationship with Blake was simply right.
“Many of Gwen’s friends love how happy she has been over these past few months.… After things ended with both of (Gwen and Blake’s) relationships they explored some time together. It all happened the way it was supposed to happen. Gwen believes timing is everything.”
According to the Hollywood Life report, the fact that Gwen and Blake were both ending marriages around the same time really drew them together.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton can be seen together each week on NBCs The Voice, where both professional musicians judge the singing competition.
