Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton suffered through challenges last year, with Gwen going through a painful divorce from Gavin Rossdale and Blake suffering after a breakup from Miranda Lambert. But then, as they worked together as coaches on The Voice, Stefani and Shelton found love, with confirmation that they were dating coming in November. Since then, the lovebirds have made their red carpet debut, visited each other’s hometowns, and cheered each other’s musical successes on social media while enjoying flirty fun.
What’s next? Shelton is so in love with Stefani that he’s ready to propose, according to Us Weekly’s insider, who revealed that she’s the woman he wants and that wedding bells could ring in the near future.
“Blake could propose to Gwen very soon,” revealed one insider. “Gwen is everything he wants.”
As for Stefani, she hasn’t tried to hide her affection for the country music crooner, describing herself as “for sure” in love with Blake. And any concern that she might have that her new boyfriend would hesitate over her three little boys has vanished, because Shelton and her sons have already bonded.
Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, who have Gavin Rossdale as their dad, adore Blake, and he appreciates the feeling of home that he gets with them, explained the source, who also revealed that Shelton had wanted to have a family with Lambert, hinting of a possible reason for their divorce.
“With Gwen, Blake has the family life he’d hoped to have with Miranda. Her kids love him as much as she does. Blake wants kids of his own.”
As for how Stefani feels about having a family life with Shelton, including babies after the wedding?
“Gwen is willing to try [to have more kids]!” added the source.
The successful singers are working on coordinating their work schedules, with Shelton immersed in what will mark album No. 12, If I’m Honest, dropping May 20. Stefani is hyping her own release, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
When they can’t get together in person, they text back and forth, with Gwen sending Blake texts “a million times” daily. But Shelton enjoys every minute of his romance with Stefani.
“Blake hasn’t been this happy in years!” added Us Weekly’s insider.
One issue that Gwen had faced preventing her happiness was the drawn-out process of finalizing her divorce from Gavin Rossdale. Now the settlement details have been released, and it’s a shocker, with Stefani getting millions more than Gavin, according to Extra.
The “lopsided” property split favors Gwen, with Rossdale deciding not to push to receive the money that she had earned from record sales and concerts. Because the former couple did not have a prenuptial, Gavin is exiting the marriage with millions less than he might have received. Together for 13 years, Rossdale would have been “entitled” to get half of all the money they made during the period in which they were married, but he’s not drawing out the divorce further with arguing that case.
In addition to the unexpected property split, the divorce settlement details revealed that the two will share 50/50 joint custody of their sons. However, because Stefani tours so much, Rossdale will spend more time with the three little boys, and he is not seeking child support.
Once the judge signs off, the divorce will be finalized, making another wedding for Gwen a real possibility based on Blake’s feelings about Stefani.
As for how Shelton’s ex Miranda Lambert feels, she’s in a race to get married before he does, according to Hollywood Life’s source.
Miranda is in love with Anderson East and has developed a “crazy-strong connection” to her new boyfriend, revealed that source.
“An engagement announcement will be coming soon. They are planning to get married before the end of the year. Miranda has even talked about a date in early fall, right after she finishes her extensive concert tour,” added the insider.
As for whether Lambert is aware of Shelton’s plans to wed Stefani, and is using that to motivate herself to get married more quickly?
“[Miranda] will absolutely get some satisfaction from beating Blake and Gwen to the altar,” claims the source.
Lambert also has planned the type of wedding she wants. And it’s country casual all the way for Miranda, according to OK! Magazine.

Lambert and Anderson are envisioning a down-home Southern-style wedding, which they anticipate will take place in Nashville, Tennessee. And it’s no surprise that plenty of music will surround the occasion.
If that sounds familiar, it’s because Gwen and Blake reportedly want a country casual wedding as well. Hollywood Life cites sources who say that in addition to wanting to marry, Stefani and Shelton are planning a huge “real country wedding,” with the price estimated at $2 million.
With everything from a corn maze to carnival rides, the dress code is definitely down-home as well.
“The dress code will be ‘Southern dressy-casual,’ like plaids, flip-flops and nice jeans,” revealed one source.
