Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are reportedly planning a traditional summer wedding.
Although no plans for marriage have been announced quite yet, the couple of about one year have been facing ongoing rumors of an engagement and a wedding, the latest of which claims Stefani and Shelton will wed next year.
“Gwen [Stefani] and Blake [Shelton] do want to get married, but they want to wait and do it properly,” a source told Hollywood Life on October 8. “Both want to wait until next summer to get married. Because this is the second marriage for both, they would prefer to just do a quickie low key Las Vegas thing, but Gwen feels like they need to go the traditional route because of her children.”

According to the report, Shelton was expected to propose to Gwen Stefani for her 47th birthday during a romantic getaway. However, there has been no confirmation of any such thing.
According to a second report, via Hollywood Life, a source told Life & Style magazine that Gwen Stefani had been “trying” to conceive a child with Shelton, and friends reportedly “believe she could already be pregnant.”
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton began dating last year, and ever since their romance was confirmed, they’ve been targeted with reports of engagements and pregnancies. However, at this point, none of those rumors appear to have been true.
As for the latest pregnancy rumor, Life & Style magazine’s source claimed Gwen Stefani has been feeling “outnumbered” for years by her three sons, Kingston, 10; Zuma, 8; and Apollo Rossdale, 2, whose father is her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale. The source also claimed Gwen Stefani had been consuming “a lot of carbs,” which she only does when she’s pregnant.
“[Gwen Stefani] wouldn’t want to be an unwed mother at the time of the baby’s birth, so she’ll definitely be marrying Blake before then,” the source explained.
Gwen Stefani has “always wanted a big family,” and she believes “Blake will be a great dad and so protective of a little girl,” the source continued.
While the source hinted that a pregnancy was possible, or at least near, Gwen Stefani most definitely did not appear to be pregnant earlier this month when she was seen sipping champagne in a video shared on her Snapchat account.
That said, a source recently told Hollywood Life that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton “are still going strong,” and although “he wants to marry Gwen, he hasn’t told anyone his ideas or timing for popping the question. He is keeping that very close to his chest.”

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton engaged in a whirlwind romance while in production on the ninth season of The Voice last year after they both split from their former partners Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert, respectively. While they stayed mum on the relationship at the start, they ultimately chose to go public in November while attending an after party for the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.
After going public in Tennessee, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton returned to Los Angeles — and to production on The Voice, where they continued to share sweet moments with fans.
In addition to their regular outings together, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been spending tons of time as a family with Stefani’s kids in recent months, and earlier this week, as she celebrated her 47th birthday, she traveled to Oklahoma with Shelton for some fun at his ranch.
