Miranda Lambert’s nursing a broken heart after her devastating divorce, and the pain is only going to increase as the holiday season approaches. Now that she’s split from Blake Shelton, Miranda’s facing her first Christmas alone.
It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but Miranda Lambert, 32, is getting all “bah humbug” about Christmas this time around. After a soul-crushing divorce from Blake Shelton, 39, and news that he’s moved on with Gwen Stefani, 46, Miranda’s now realizing she’s going to be celebrating the holidays without her former husband by her side. What’s she going to do?
“Christmas was Miranda and Blake’s favorite time of year — it’s always been their special time,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They had all these traditions, like Christmas music 24/7 and a tree in every room. Spending the holidays without Blake is going to be very difficult for Miranda; she’s not sure how she’ll handle it.
“She’s talking about doing something totally different and going on a trip with her girlfriends just to change it up,” the source continued. “She just wants to do whatever she can to avoid missing Blake.”
That sounds like a fabulous plan! It’s been difficult, understandably, for Miranda to deal with the pain of her divorce — especially now that Blake is flaunting his blossoming relationship with Gwen everywhere he goes. But she actually hasn’t seemed too bothered by it, at least publicly. She’s got an amazing career to focus on, and a life to live outside of Blake! Celebrating your first holiday after a breakup is incredibly hard. Maybe having tons of fun with her friends will become and even better tradition!
