Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are taking their love to the next level. After devoting last year to surviving challenging divorces (Gwen split with Gavin Rossdale, while Blake broke up with Miranda Lambert), the two formed a friendship on The Voice that soon changed to flirty fun. From there, Stefani and Shelton began to date, and a parade of PDA delighted their fans both on the show, social media, and websites.
Now Gwen and Blake are showing just how serious they are by including her sons and parents in their romance, noted the Daily Mail. And it was all kinds of cuteness as the little boys sported suits for Easter Sunday.
Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo happily joined their mom and Blake at her parents’ Los Angeles home for a holiday feast. At 9, Kingston was the leader of the pack, but Stefani’s youngest son, Apollo, who is 2, deserved the Easter prize for adorable, with 7-year-old Zuma coordinating with his brothers.
The dapper little dudes outshone Shelton, who wore country casual and brought a big container of food to the Easter party. Showing just how close he has become to Gwen’s family, Blake exchanged a hug with her mom, Patti.
Shelton has been jokey with his fans on social media, while Stefani has been more open. Now Gwen is revealing why she isn’t afraid to show her affection for Blake by revealing that she finds social media comforting, reported People.
“Society has changed a lot,” pointed out Stefani. “I think that people feel real good about tapping into everybody’s life [with social media], and there’s something comforting about that.”
For those who think that the romance between Gwen and Shelton seemed staged because of their visibility on The Voice, Stefani is vocal in declaring that she never imagined that she would fall in love that way, noted E! News.
But she points to the timing as one of the key reasons in their love.
“[Blake] had been going through literally the exact same thing in literally the exact same time frame,” explained Gwen.
As for songwriter and collaborator Justin Tranter, he watched Stefani go from one emotion to the other as her despair over her divorce changed to delight in Shelton.
“We had anger, we had sadness, we had flirtation, we had sexy, and now we’re madly in love,” recalled Justin of how Gwen felt when she fell in love with Blake.
“Never in my wildest, craziest dreams would I ever have seen this coming,” admitted the pop star.
The way in which Shelton accepts her sons is a big part of why Stefani is so deeply in love, a source told People.
Gwen had been worried following her breakup with Rossdale that she would never meet someone who embraced her sons.
“She was questioning if she would ever meet someone that would accept her boys,” said the source, noting that Shelton experienced “no hesitation” in loving Gwen’s three sons.
As for whether it’s just a fling, the source also revealed that those close to the lovebirds are predicting a “longterm future.” And because Gwen’s beau is an old-fashioned guy, getting engaged is a strong possibility, added the insider.
“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.”
Moreover, a new report claims that Shelton and Stefani are so in love that she proposed. Gossip Cop notes that Life & Style described Gwen as surprising her boyfriend with a delicious dinner and proposal of marriage.
However, although it’s romantic, it’s romantic fiction, according to what Stefani’s rep told Gossip Cop, which also discounted a report claiming that Gwen is pregnant with twins.
“Rumors have been swirling that Gwen is expecting twins with her new country boyfriend Blake Shelton,” wrote OK! Magazine.
However, Stefani’s rep also discredited that report as “untrue.”
