We all thought it was heartbreaking enough when Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert, 31, announced their divorce after four years of marriage on July 20. Now, we’ve learned that it gets worse — the now separated pair are reportedly expecting their first child together.
Rumors have been swirling about what went wrong ever since Blake and Miranda announced their split. Now, a new repot claims that the pair will be welcoming a baby in the upcoming months. “Miranda is pregnant,” an insider told In Touch. Lo and behold she reportedly didn’t find out until after the pair split, according to the outlet. “Blake and Miranda were in the midst of one of their many screaming matches at their home in Nashville in early July.”
The source continued to say, “She’d just read him the riot act over his drinking and flirting, and he retaliated with claims that she’d taken all the fun out of his life and always seemed to resist talk of starting a family.” It was then that Miranda reportedly told him that she refused to have kids “until he got his act together.” Click to hear more details about the Miranda and Blake split.

Wow, talk about a bombshell. It’s hard to believe that Blake would go through with the divorce if he and Miranda were expecting.
