Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have enjoyed using social media to flirt with each other and charm fans with their romance since they began dating last year. The two quickly took their friendship as coaches on The Voice to the next level, parading their PDA and happiness after both went through painful breakups (Gwen divorced Gavin Rossdale, while Blake split from Miranda Lambert). Now Stefani and Shelton are combining their love for each other with their passion for music in what promises to be the ultimate duet.
And Gwen turned to Twitter to hint at what lies ahead for their fans.
As for the inside scoop on what Stefani posted, that photo shows the back of the upcoming album from Shelton, noted Cosmopolitan.
Titled “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” the duet is among the 15 tracks listed on Blake’s If I’m Honest album, which is set for release May 20.
But fans of Gwen don’t have to wait until next month when it comes to her newest musical creations. Viewers of The Voice were treated to a debut of Stefani’s new single, “Misery,” on the Tuesday episode of the singing competition, noted ET.
Blake didn’t disappoint with his reaction, beaming his pride during his standing ovation. But did anything exciting happen behind the scenes that the TV cameras didn’t capture?
Gwen actually did several takes, and after the third one, Shelton went up to his girlfriend so they could talk privately. One of her sons, 2-year-old Apollo, also accompanied them as the lovebirds cooed together.
“Misery” comes from Stefani’s new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and she’s revealed that Blake inspired her single “Make Me Like You,” according to ET.
Showing just how much Shelton means to her, Stefani even delighted fans by tweeting that he is her muse.
In addition to collaborating on a duet, does the couple have plans to team up for a long-term relationship? After five months of dating, Shelton is ready to propose, an insider told Us Weekly.
“Blake could propose to Gwen very soon. Gwen is everything he wants.”
As for how Stefani feels, she’s described herself as “for sure” in love with the 39-year-old country music superstar. The 46-year-old mom of three (Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2) also knows that her sons agree with her feelings about Blake, while he’s thrilled to have a family.
“With Gwen, Blake has the family life he’d hoped to have with Miranda,” revealed the insider. “Her kids love him as much as she does.”
But three children may just be the start of that family life, because Shelton also dreams of having his own children. Stefani is on board with the idea.
“Blake wants kids of his own. And Gwen is willing to try!” added the source.
As for what their wedding will be like, Shelton and Stefani want country casual, according to Hollywood Life.
To be held at the lakefront home owned by Blake, the wedding will feature traditional food such as barbecue. Gwen’s sons will enjoy elements such as the carnival rides and corn maze that they’ve planned, and Stefani doesn’t need to worry about trying to persuade them to wear tiny formal attire either. The dress code is described as “Southern dressy casual,” translated as nice jeans and those plaid shirts that the country music superstar loves to sport.
As for how much the celebrity country wedding could cost? It’s estimated at $2 million.
Shelton just received an early wedding gift — well, sort of. In a legal victory against In Touch magazine, a judge ruled in favor of the singer when it came to the publication’s attempt to have the case tossed out, reported TMZ.
In addition, the judge favored Shelton by declaring that the magazine’s claims that he had a drinking problem and had gone to rehab constituted libel, and because In Touch was aware that he had never gone to rehab, the headline was malicious.
