Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton both experienced relationship highs and lows last year. Gwen suffered a painful break-up with Gavin Rossdale when allegations surfaced that he had cheated on her with the family nanny, Mindy Mann. And Blake went through his own divorce pains with Miranda Lambert. But when they went from platonic pals on The Voice to lovebirds, it seemed that Stefani and Shelton had finally achieved the perfect rosy romance.
Now Gwen and Blake are heating up their hook-up even more, canoodling at parties and beaming happily at each other during their first red carpet debut, reported Us Weekly.
For the last five months, Stefani and Shelton have gradually become more in love with each other.
“She’s head over heels,” an insider told Us Weekly.
The 46-year-old mom of two recently canoodled with the 39-year-old country crooner throughout the February 27 wedding of RaeLynn Woodward, who he had mentored on The Voice. Gwen and Blake then made headlines again with their glamorous red carpet debut, which took place at Vanity Fair’s glittery post-Oscars party in Los Angeles.
The loving couple held hands on the red carpet before piling on the PDA once inside the party scene, observers told Us.
“They made out. They were dancing together and kissing against a wall. They’re completely infatuated.”
The relationship that Stefani and Shelton are enjoying isn’t just flirty fun. Now that Gwen moved on from the alleged affair that Rossdale had with the family nanny, she’s feeling truly good, another source shared with Us.
“She’s in a good place,” said the insider.
Rumors even swirled that Blake had proposed, with Gwen supposedly flaunting an engagement ring. However, a rep for Gwen told Gossip Cop that Shelton has not yet proposed.
“[Stefani] is not engaged,” said the singer’s spokesperson.
Will their love be dimmed by the sudden spotlight that’s turned back to Gavin and the nanny? Rumors are swirling that Mann is pregnant, reported the Daily Mail.
While helping to care for the three little boys that Rossdale and Stefani share, Mindy allegedly carried on an affair with Gavin for three years. Now she reportedly is pregnant, with her sister announcing the baby bump on Facebook. Social media revealed that Mann is dating a Los Angeles snowboard teacher.
However, Mindy declined to name the baby daddy or discuss the alleged pregnancy. She and Gavin were seen recently lunching together in North Hollywood. Mann currently is working at a nursery, Pint-Sized Kids.
The seeds of Nanny Gate were planted in 2008, when Mindy began working for Gwen and Gavin. Rossdale subsequently engaged in an alleged affair, which Stefani learned about when a different nanny uncovered nude pictures and sexy messages on the family’s iPad.
Gwen’s ex allegedly even left her in the hospital following the birth of their youngest son, Apollo, so that he could rendezvous with Mindy. Rossdale and nanny also allegedly had sex on his tour bus when he was on the road while the children (Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, now 2) were sleeping. That reportedly occurred while Stefani was filming The Voice.
When Gwen learned, she was horrified, revealed a source cited by the Mail.
“[Stefani felt] completely devastated her,” shared the source. “She was mortified, livid, and embarrassed.”
But with help from Blake, Gwen has regained her joy in life.
“I had a year that was so full of horror – the worst, worst. But at the same time, the greatest stuff as well,” Stefani recently revealed.
And will 2016 take Gwen to even greater happiness with a wedding? The singer recently met Shelton’s family and Blake met her parents, taking their love to the next level, according to Hollywood Life, which cited a report claiming that the couple is contemplating a wedding.
Stefani’s little boys adore Shelton, and their affection is essential for Gwen, according to the report. The lovebirds reportedly are considering a $2 million country wedding at his lakefront Oklahoma home.
