When it comes to their high-profile romance, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have heard it all.
From wedding to pregnancy rumors, their relationship has been one of the most discussed celebrity romances all year. However, are Shelton and Stefani ready to finalize their wedding plans?
According to She Knows, The Voice stars are getting ready to announce their engagement next month and have plans to exchange vows sometime in December.
“They’re planning a December wedding at Blake’s ranch in Oklahoma because Gwen and the boys love it there and it will give them a lot of privacy,” an insider revealed to Life & Style Magazine.
While nothing has been officially confirmed, Shelton has gotten a lot closer with Stefani’s boys. Apparently, all three sons will play a significant part in the wedding ceremony.
“Apollo wants to be the ring bearer, and the two older boys will be junior groomsmen with Blake,” the source stated. “Blake wants it to be really special, to show them coming together as a family.”
The source went on to explain that the ceremony isn’t going to be extravagant. Instead, the couple only wants family members and a few close friends to attend.
Speaking of family, Celeb Dirty Laundry reports that Stefani has already starting distancing her kids from ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale.
With Kingston (10), Zuma (7), and Apollo (2) spending more and more time with Shelton, Rossdale barely sees his three boys.
In fact, The Hollywood Gossip is reporting that Blake Shelton recently took all three boys to the Zoo & Botanical Garden in Cincinnati.
“Blake acted like he was Apollo’s dad,” a source stated.
If the December wedding rumors are true, then Rossdale is likely going to oppose the Christmas nuptials, especially if it means his boys will not spend the holiday with him.
Stefani ended her marriage with Rossdale last summer after she allegedly discovered that he cheated on her with their children’s nanny. A few months after the split, Stefani and Shelton started seeing each other while working on The Voice.
Given their high-profile status, this isn’t the first time Shelton and Stefani have faced wedding rumors.
Just last week, reports indicated the couple was preparing to tie the knot once Stefani is done with her summer tour.
“The nuptials will be held at Blake’s $2.3 million estate in Nashville, right after Gwen wraps up her ‘This Is What the Truth Feels Like Tour’ and Blake finishes shooting the current season of The Voice,” an insider revealed.
If this rumor is true, then a December date for the wedding isn’t that far off the mark. After all, Shelton’s work on The Voice won’t wrap up until later this fall.
That being said, Shelton has yet to pop the big question, let alone plan for a wedding.
Even still, rumors of their union continue to persist.
“Rumors are circulating in their circle that they’ve begun preparations for a wedding,” an insider stated. “There’s no date set, but they’re planning ahead and having fun talking about it.”
Until Shelton and Stefani officially announce their engagement and wedding plans, fans should take these rumors with a grain of salt.
However, that doesn’t mean Shelton isn’t looking forward to becoming a father.
Shelton was married to Miranda Lambert for a number of years before the couple announced their divorce last summer. They did not have any children together.
Based on his constant interactions with Stefani’s boys, the country crooner is clearly preparing for a future with the No Doubt frontwoman.
With their romance still going strong, the only real question remaining is when Shelton and Stefani will exchange vows and take their romance to the next level.
