Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are preparing to walk down the aisle once again.
The two are allegedly planning their upcoming wedding and are happy to begin their new lives together. While a wedding seems like a done deal, is Stefani ready to start having kids?
An insider recently told Life & Style Magazine that Stefani is one the verge of announcing their engagement and is more than willing to expand her family with Shelton.
“It’s only a matter of time until they formally announce the engagement,” the inside source explained. “And while they’re planning the wedding, they’re actively trying to start a family. They’ve never been happier or more in love.”
Stefani was previously married to rocker Gavin Rossdale. During their long marriage, the couple had three children together: Kingston (10), Zuma (8), and Apollo (2).
Shelton has been married a few times, most recently to Miranda Lambert, but hasn’t had any kids of his own.
Apparently, that is all going to change once the country crooner ties the knot with Stefani.
“She has incredible doctors and she’s exploring all her options, including surrogates,” the insider continued. “No matter what, Gwen wants the child to be hers and Blake’s baby together. She’s ready.”
Stefani and Blake Shelton have yet to announce their future plans, though E! Online reports the No Doubt alum laughed off a recent wedding question during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I just need to know so I can clear that schedule,” DeGeneres teased Stefani after bringing up the rumors of a coming wedding.
“Oh, you’re crazy,” Stefani giggled in return.
“Just let me know,” the host pushed.
“OK,” Stefani replied. “I’ll let you know.”
The pop star is coming off the end of her summer tour, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
Stefani hadn’t toured in over seven years and even took her boys along for the ride.
While she felt bad for dragging her kids around the country all summer, she revealed that they all had a blast helping her out, especially Zuma.
“He had his flashlight, his headphones. He walked me on and off the stage every single night,” Stefani revealed. “For two hours he worked back there and he was so into it. It was way more incredible than I could have ever imagined. I’m so grateful to everyone who came out. You know, when you’re face-to-face, it’s not like the Internet – it’s them, it’s those people. So, it was really cool.”
Because of her busy summer tour, Stefani was not able to take part on the current season of The Voice with Shelton.
Instead, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are taking Stefani’s spot as the new coaches this season.
Despite her exclusion, Stefani had the chance to visit Shelton on set and had nothing but love for the new coaches.
“I got to do down to the set a few times, and it was really fun. It’s surreal,” Stefani shared. “You’re there and you’re like, ‘I’m not on the show and it’s Miley and it’s Alicia. I mean, I love both of them. I know both of them and they’re both so talented in their own ways, and it’s so fun to see them interact.”
Stefani has also stayed in contact with Shelton’s arch-nemesis on The Voice, Adam Levine, who just welcomed a new baby to his growing family.
“And Adam’s actually been FaceTiming me all day because he just had his baby,” Stefani told DeGeneres. “She’s so cute!”
Sadly, it doesn’t sound like Stefani will make a cameo on The Voice this season, but it does look like a wedding is right around the corner.
