When it comes to Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s romance, the two have not been taking things very slow. He was just divorced over the summer, and Gwen’s divorce is still ongoing. Now it turns out that they are getting pretty serious and starting to include at least one of Gwen’s sons in their outings. TMZ shared a photo that shows Gwen and Blake out walking, and her son, Apollo, who is just 2-years-old, is on her hip with Blake walking by their side.
Blake went out to lunch with Gwen and Apollo on Thursday in Studio City. This is the first time that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been seen in a family-type setting, and they only had her youngest son along. Of course, Apollo is not going to be asking a lot of questions about what is going on, so he is the safest one to have lunch with that won’t be wondering what is going on. Gwen’s older sons have not been spotted out in public with Blake yet, but who knows what these two are doing when the cameras are not around.
Blake and Gwen have admitted that they are dating, but the two don’t have a lot to say about what is going on with them. Ellen DeGeneres grilled Gwen about how things were going and if Blake was a good kisser, but Gwen decided to laugh off a lot of it, and avoided answering the questions.
Reports came out not long ago that Blake Shelton was really hoping for an Oklahoma Christmas with Gwen Stefani and her boys. Sources shared that Blake thinks that Gwen’s boys would benefit from being away from the city and hanging out in the country for a bit. Of course, Gwen would have to get her ex-husband, Gavin Rosedale, to agree to let them do this and so far there is no news if Blake will get his way or not. Spending Christmas together is obviously a big step in any relationship.
A source did share part of what Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have planned for the holidays. It doesn’t sound like they will head to Oklahoma because Gwen does still want the boys to be around Gavin. This will be the first Christmas since they split up.
“It’s very likely they 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.”
E! Online shared that this weekend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani had fun together at an engagement party. Of course, this party wasn’t for these two just yet. They went to Bound’ry in Nashville for a private engagement party in honor of singer RaeLynn. Blake and RaeLynn became very close when she was on his team on The Voice. A source shared that everyone had a good time at the party and gave a few details about how it went for Gwen and Blake.
“Blake and Gwen were great. They looked happy. They were having a great time and dressed in spirit. Blake gave a nice little toast to Raelynn and congratulated his close friend…what a friend would do for another friend.”
