Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton continue to face rumors of a pregnancy and engagement, but are any of the reports true?
This week, an OK! Magazine cover featured Gwen Stefani and her alleged baby bump, proclaiming that the 46-year-old singer was expecting a baby girl, and days later, Stefani was photographed with what appeared to be a diamond ring on her ring finger.
Although something appears to be going on, sources have since confirmed that Gwen Stefani is not pregnant or engaged to be married to Shelton, 39.
On the cover of OK! Magazine‘s “It’s A Girl!” announcement, the issue claimed Gwen Stefani was “due on her 47th birthday” and circled her alleged baby bump, which they claimed was visible during the Radio Disney Music Awards on April 30.
Gwen Stefani is having a “miracle baby,” the report alleged, adding that her wedding to Shelton was currently on hold, as they planned to welcome their first child. However, according to Gwen Stefani’s rep, the report is “untrue.”
“[Gwen Stefani] does NOT have a baby bump,” Gossip Cop reported on May 11, revealing Stefani’s rep’s statement as confirmation of the false report.

As for Gwen Stefani’s alleged engagement ring, the mother of three was seen wearing some bling on her ring finger on Saturday during the Wango Tango music festival in Los Angeles, and a short time later, multiple outlets reported on her possible engagement. But again, those reports appear to be incorrect.
“Shelton has not proposed to [Gwen Stefani], and the piece of jewelry in question simply isn’t an engagement ring,” Gossip Cop told readers on May 16.

In other Gwen Stefani news, both she and Shelton are allegedly contemplating an exit from The Voice after feuding with producers behind the scenes.
“[Gwen Stefani] is livid that she was not asked to replace Christina on The Voice next season, and because of this she wants to quit the show altogether,” a source told Radar Online last week.
According to the report, Gwen Stefani suspects Christina Aguilera, whom she’s reportedly been feuding with for years, is responsible for the producer’s decision to bring Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys to the show rather than have her return.
“She and Blake seem to feel that Christina was responsible for this because she wanted to piss Gwen off, and it did!” the source explained.
Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani’s boyfriend, Shelton, was also said to be “mulling over the possibility of quitting the show after this next season,” according to a second Radar Online report.
“He is saying that he loves The Voice because it brought him to Gwen, but that he ultimately wants to focus more on his career and give other artists the opportunity that he has had,” said the insider.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton struck up a romance at the end of last year while filming The Voice Season 9, and while Stefani was not expected to return to the show for Season 10 – as she and Aguilera have been alternating seasons for the last couple of years – she appeared as both an advisor and a performer.
Last week, Gwen Stefani took the stage with Shelton to debut their new duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” for the very first time. In the song, which was written at the start of their relationship, Gwen Stefani and Shelton addressed their past heartache and newfound love.
