Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are reportedly expecting a baby girl. Just months into their relationship, a source claims the 46-year-old singer is pregnant with her fourth child, the first for Shelton.
With the baby girl reportedly due in October, around the time of Gwen Stefani’s 47th birthday, she and Shelton have allegedly put their wedding plans on hold and are now in discussions about how they will split their time between Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch and Gwen Stefani’s Los Angeles mansion.
“They’ve agreed that Oklahoma is an amazing place to bring up children,” a source told OK! Magazine, according to a report by Celebrity Dirty Laundry on May 11.
Since they began dating, Gwen Stefani and Shelton have spent time together in Oklahoma a number of times, and during spring break earlier this year, Gwen Stefani brought her 3 kids, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, to Shelton’s hometown.

The photo of Gwen Stefani was taken on April 30 at the Radio Disney Music Awards, where Pharrell Williams, her co-star on The Voice, presented her with the Hero Award as boyfriend Shelton sat in the front row.
According to the report, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will get married eventually, but for now, they are focused on preparing for their alleged baby girl.
If Gwen Stefani and Shelton do agree on Oklahoma as their home base, Stefani will be forced to make new arrangements for the custody and visitation schedule of her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
In August 2016, Gwen Stefani and Rossdale ended their 13-year marriage and shortly thereafter, rumors began swirling in regard to his alleged affair with their former nanny, Mindy Mann.
While the report claimed Gwen Stefani had already revealed her reported baby news to Rossdale, the source claimed she was not “all that concerned what her ex-husband thinks.” In addition, Shelton has reportedly also told his former spouse, Miranda Lambert, that he would soon become a first time dad.

“Supposedly they weren’t doing anything to prevent a pregnancy,” OK! Magazine‘s insider claimed, according to a report by Hollywood Life. “It was something they’d both welcome, but they assumed that ship had sailed.”
Now that they are allegedly expecting a child together, Gwen Stefani and Shelton are reportedly even more in love than they were before, and excited for the upcoming birth.
“They were already like a couple of giddy teens,” the source added. “Now, they’re even deeper in love.”
Months ago, amid rumors of another Gwen Stefani pregnancy, a source claimed she and Shelton were not trying to start a family, but also not opposed to the idea.
“They are not trying to have a baby, but if an accident happens they wouldn’t consider it an accident,” a source told Hollywood Life in March. “They would embrace it and love it if it happened. The thing is, they are having a lot of fun together and as much as a child would be amazing, they are not actively trying for it. They are taking things day by day and enjoying the honeymoon phase that they are still in.”
Gwen Stefani and Shelton have been faced with pregnancy rumors since they went public with their romance in November of last year. However, at this point, they have not yet made any sort of announcement about a pregnancy.
