Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are two adorable people who happened to find love with one another, so obviously they attract attention no matter where they go. Unfortunately, because of their high celebrity profiles, they are subject to quite a few rumors, and Shelton addressed one of them recently.
The duo have been going strong since meeting on the set of The Voice when Stefani stepped in to fill a judge’s seat during Christina Aguilera’s maternity leave, and fans have lost their collective minds trying to follow them on social media and keep up with their relationship. When they can’t find news, it seems, they just make it up.
“I read that we’re having twins in the latest tabloid, and I think you can fit two humans in there. Maybe three in there!” Shelton said in an interview with ET Online.
But don’t get too excited: He was talking about his own belly.
While he didn’t exactly deny that Gwen is pregnant, it’s clear that the couple thinks all the tabloid stories and media attention are silly. They don’t hold back on the public displays of affection, however, making a point to cuddle up for photos on Instagram to share with fans. The duo even wrote a song together, and while Shelton admitted recently that it began as a way to “impress Gwen,” it quickly became something more.
“When we wrote the song we never saw it going there. I don’t know that we ever really saw it going anywhere. I sent it to her, and she wrote the other half of the song,” Shelton said, “It’s like, ‘Oh, she just one-upped me,'” Blake Shelton said.
The song, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” was a way for both Gwen and Blake to deal with their respective breakups with Miranda Lambert and Gavin Rossdale. Rossdale, with whom Gwen has three boys, allegedly cheated on her with one of their nannies. The revelation reportedly came after she discovered photos on a shared device at their home, and Gwen immediately began writing.
“At that time everything was like I had no skin, it was so raw. Nobody knew what was happening, and I had this big secret,” Gwen said in an interview with CBS. “I am dead, actually. How do I save myself? What am I going to do? How do I not go down like this?”
The answer, she says, was to start writing songs. Music was her way of coping, so she wrote and wrote until she had enough for two albums. She had so many songs, in fact, that execs at her record company said it would never work because every song was so personal, and fans wouldn’t relate. Gwen insisted, however, and her first single from the new album, “Used to Love You,” was an immediate success.
Despite the heartbreak, things seem to have worked out for the best, as Gwen and Blake have now found one another and seem to be blissfully happy. Blake can’t stop gushing about how much he adores Gwen, and she’s obviously smitten with him. The duo even performed together at the Billboard Music Awards, taking the stage to belt out the song they wrote together.
For Blake Shelton, having Gwen on his arm has been an eye-opening experience.
“I just like being with her, but when she’s all dolled up and we go places, it’s always fun for me. If she was here right now, not one person here would be looking at anybody else but her. It’s just cool to know that’s who I came here with. That’s basically what ‘A Guy With a Girl’ is about. They may come up and talk to me, but it’s only because I’m one person over from her. Pretty cool,” Blake said.
