It’s been a solid year since Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani wedding fervor peaked, and those two lovebirds still haven’t headed down the aisle. But they are still going strong, and now that they’re living together in Shelton’s native Oklahoma along with Stefani’s kids, they are reportedly ready to take the next step in their relationship.
Just not the next step you might expect.
Multiple sources have told Us Weekly Shelton and Stefani are officially trying to get pregnant with a baby of their own. They “will get married one day,” one insider said, “but right now they are hyper-focused on getting pregnant.”
For 49-year-old Stefani, the clock is ticking on having another baby for sure. But she got pregnant with her son Apollo when she was 43, so another source says they definitely aren’t giving up.
“They believe there is still a chance for Gwen,” the insider said. “They are incredibly hopeful.”
According to these sources, having kids has always been one of Shelton’s goals.
“Blake told Gwen he does want kids of his own, and Gwen was willing to try,” an insider dished. “With her, Blake has the exact relationship and family life he’d hoped to have with Miranda. Gwen’s everything he wants.”
But in the meantime, Shelton has told reporters recently that he’s really enjoying showing Stefani and the kids around their new home.
“It’s been a lot of fun for me to be the one to get to expose them to this,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “They love it so much, her entire family.”
Aww, it sounds like things are going just great for this happy, blended family.
