Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton may be tying the knot sooner rather than later. Although The Voice couple remains mum on their potential engagement and future wedding plans, a source claims wedding bells could be coming soon for Gwen Stefani and Shelton.

“[Gwen Stefani] thinks of Blake as the biggest blessing,” a Gwen Stefani source told People Magazine on March 2. “They share both good life experience, like work, and bad ones, like their divorces.”
In July of last year, Shelton announced he and his then-wife, Miranda Lambert, were parting ways after four years of marriage, and weeks later, Gwen Stefani announced her own divorce from Gavin Rossdale, the father of their three sons, after 13 years of marriage.
In November of that same year, after being spotted looking awfully cozy at a Halloween bash the previous months, Gwen Stefani and Shelton debuted their relationship at an after party for the County Music Awards, which were attended by both Shelton and Lambert (separately, of course). Then, in the months that followed their public debut, Gwen Stefani and Shelton have shared moments with fans on social media, and recently took to the red carpet at Vanity Fair‘s Oscars after party.
Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani has been caught up in an ongoing scandal involving her soon-to-be ex-husband, Rossdale, and their former nanny, Mindy Mann. As Us Weekly revealed in November, 2015, Rossdale is accused of having a three-year affair with Mann during her marriage to Gwen Stefani, which was reportedly proven by messages sent to Mann on the family’s iPad.
According to the report, Gwen Stefani discovered news of her husband’s reported romance with Mann from another member of her staff, but once she confronted him, he immediately denied having done anything wrong. Then, months after the information was given to Gwen Stefani, Rossdale reportedly came clean, leading her to file for divorce.
Following Gwen Stefani’s split, according to the source, “she was questioning if she would ever meet someone that would accept her boys.” However, Shelton, who parted ways with Lambert prior to starting a family, had “no hesitation” when it came to meeting, and accepting, Gwen Stefani’s three young sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2. In fact, the source claimed Shelton “loved it.”
While the source went on to reveal Gwen Stefani and Shelton were “not putting pressure on themselves” and “just enjoying life together,” a “longterm future” together wouldn’t come as surprise to anyone.
“They seem too perfect for each other for it to just be fluke. For now, they seem happy with their relationship, but Blake is old-fashioned and a future engagement seems very possible,” the insider explained.

As Gwen Stefani’s romance with Shelton continues, her former partner’s relationship with Mann has also kept going, and despite the allegations surrounding their shocking affair, the two were recently spotted together in Los Angeles — much to the dismay of Gwen Stefani.
“Gwen feels like this whole Gavin and Mindy meeting is a stunt to make her jealous and upset. She doesn’t understand why they had to be so obvious about their get-together. When she heard about she just rolled her eyes. Too much drama and she’s not going there,” an insider told Hollywood Life last month. “Gwen is in the best place she’s ever been and she’s not for one minute going to let her ex get to her.”
