Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are reportedly finalizing their plans to wed, and as they prepare to become man and wife, a source claims they are also planning to start a family together.
While Blake Shelton appears to have taken on the role of stepfather to Gwen Stefani’s three sons, Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2, after just one year of dating, a new report claims the couple’s family will soon be expanded with a new baby.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton “will do whatever it takes to have a baby girl,” an insider revealed to Life & Style magazine on October 24.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s romance began on the set of The Voice Season 9 last year, and immediately after the couple went public with their relationship, rumors began swirling in regard to when they would get married — and when they would welcome their first child.

According to the magazine’s report, Gwen Stefani is considering in-vitro fertilization, and she and Shelton have also discussed adoption. Either way, Gwen Stefani is determined to add a girl to her and her boyfriend’s blended family.
“It might be a baby, or it might be a toddler,” the source added. “But no matter what, [Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton] want to have a little girl in their arms by the end of 2017.”
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been targeted with rumors of pregnancies and adoptions for the past several months, but so far, both parties have remained silent in regard to their potential plans to expand their family. Although Shelton has poked fun at the rumors regarding his plans for children with Stefani on Twitter, he hasn’t actually spoken of his plans for the future. Instead, he and Gwen Stefani have continued on with their romance in private and continue to keep fans guessing.

Although the ongoing rumors of a baby for Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been paired with reports of a plan to get married, the couple has stayed mum in regard to a future together. That said, several reports have suggested an engagement could come at any time. In fact, a report earlier this year by TMZ claimed the couple had already hired a wedding planner.
Around the same time, a source told People Magazine that Shelton was planning to propose to Gwen Stefani as soon as the timing was right.
“They are not engaged yet,” said a source close to Gwen Stefani. “Everyone is expecting it to happen at some point, though… It seems the timing [for an engagement] just hasn’t been right, but Gwen is very, very happy with Blake. She always acts giddy when she talks about Blake.”
While Gwen Stefani was busy with her “This is What the Truth Feels Like Tour” at the time of the report, and Shelton was in the midst of production on The Voice Season 11, the source noted that Shelton was “very excited” for Gwen Stefani and understood the pressures that came with hosting a nationwide tour.
“Their relationship is almost too good to be true. They are very much alike and really have a very special relationship. All the things that need to work out for two people to merge lives have worked out,” the source explained.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will soon be reunited on screen. Just last week, NBC confirmed Stefani would be rejoining the coaching panel of The Voice for Season 12.
