“Blake was at [Gwen Stefani]’s LA home just last night,” a source close to Gwen Stefani and Shelton told Hollywood Life on January 19. “He spends every night over there and they are always together.”
Although Shelton still calls Oklahoma “home,” and also has a second house in the Hollywood Hills, where he stays during production on The Voice, the majority of his time on the west coast is spent with Gwen Stefani and her three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
“Blake drives back to his own place in the mornings to check-in with things and freshen-up his clothes and stuff, but he spends every night with [Gwen Stefani] and her kids,” the source explained.

Gwen Stefani and Shelton began dating at the end of last year, and ever since, their love for one another has been flaunted all over the country. From trips to Oklahoma to a visit to Gwen Stefani’s hometown of Anaheim, the couple has been busy traveling as the enjoy their hiatus from The Voice. The couple has also been steadily dealing with rumors regarding a potential pregnancy or upcoming wedding, the latest of which was shared just hours ago.
Also on January 19, a source told Hollywood Life of Gwen Stefani and Shelton’s alleged plans for a “simple” wedding in the future.
“Talk of marriage has been on each others minds lately and they both have agreed that is in their future,” the source explained.
While the couple is not quite ready to tie the knot, and understandably so, Gwen Stefani and Shelton have reportedly been discussing what their potential wedding would look like, and according to the source, it would be a far cry from the typically extravagant Hollywood ceremonies many celebrities enjoy.
“When they get to that stage they want to treat it very simple and only invite close family and friends. They would do a party at a later date for everyone else but they would want it to be more intimate. Nothing imminent, but this year if they aren’t engaged that would be a shock.”
Following the ninth season of The Voice, which featured plenty of PDA moments from Gwen Stefani and Shelton after they went public with their relationship, Gwen Stefani was replaced by Christina Aguilera, who will return to her coaching spot when the 10th season of the NBC series begins production. For the last few years, Gwen Stefani has been alternating seasons with Aguilera, but when season 10 return, she won’t be completely absent. Instead, the mother of three will return to The Voice in a mentor roll.
Last week, E! News reported details of Gwen Stefani’s return, claiming she would serve as mentor for Shelton’s team. Then, as for a potential season 11 return to her coaching chair, an NBC executive offered the following statement:
“We don’t know yet. We know what we’re doing in the spring, because the diva’s back, Christina’s coming back, and for the fall, we’ve got the Olympics, so I would only tease that yes, there will probably be some familiar faces,” the exec teased of Gwen Stefani’s possible role.
