Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, no matter how often they joke about the matter, just can’t seem to shake the pregnancy reports which have plagued them since days after they went public with their relationship.
Despite their hectic schedules, many are simply convinced Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will soon welcome a child.
Currently, Gwen Stefani is busy promoting her album, This is What the Truth Feels Like, which was released earlier this year, and she is also preparing to embark on her upcoming tour, which kicks off in July and will keep her busy through the fall. Meanwhile, Shelton is promoting his new album, as well, and will soon resume filming on The Voice.
As for rumors of a possible engagement, Gwen Stefani has confirmed she is not engaged to Blake Shelton, nor was she expecting a ring anytime soon.
“Let’s just take it one day at a time,” Gwen Stefani said during an appearance on 94.7 FM’s “The Tommy Show,” via People Magazine. “Everything’s crazy right now so no, absolutely not… Can you imagine the amount of gossip-y, weird stories people make up?”
“To me, it makes me laugh every day. I actually do Google my name just so I can see the next one that’s gonna happen, because it’s gotten so out of control,” Gwen Stefani continued of the many rumors about her romance. “The best part about it is it’s hilarious; the worst part about it is that some people actually believe that stuff like that is what’s funny.”

Back in March, a source claimed a future engagement between Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton was a definite possibility.
“[Gwen Stefani] thinks of Blake as the biggest blessing,” a Stefani source told People Magazine at the time. “They share both good life experience, like work, and bad ones, like their divorces.”
After her divorce from Gavin Rossdale in August 2015, Gwen Stefani reportedly questioned if she would ever meet someone who would accept her three children, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, but when it came to Shelton, he had “had no hesitation” and actually “loved” getting to know her boys.
At the time, the source continued on, claiming Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were “not putting pressure on themselves” and were “just enjoying life together.”
Still, the source added, “they seem too perfect for each other for it to just be fluke. For now, they seem happy with their relationship, but Blake is old-fashioned and a future engagement seems very possible.”
In addition to their individual careers, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton teamed up for a duet, “Go Ahead and Break my Heart,” which was released last month and spoke of their journey together.
