Oh baby! Although rumors have circulated that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are pregnant, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the couple is NOT expecting after all — but they do hope to in the future…just not so soon. Get the scoop on why they’re willing to wait until marriage right here!
There’s really no question that Blake Shelton, 39, and Gwen Stefani, 46, are in it for the long haul. The two are clearly head over heels in love! But while they reportedly both want a child together, they’re in no rush to make it happen any time soon. And HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the couple feels getting married FIRST is super important. Find out why they’re so adamant below!
“Gwen wants to take on a few more career goals and not get into having a child right now, but that is nothing against Blake in any way, shape, or form,” a sourced revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “They are enjoying being together without the baby. They would hope to be married before anything like that happened anyways.” Aww, while we’d love to see these two expand their family — and how amazing would they be as parents? — we totally understand why they wouldn’t want to start a family so soon in to their romance.
Plus, Gwen’s and Blake’s careers are both booming right now so it’s not hard to see why they’d want to keep up that momentum. But the good news? At least they’re allegedly planning on tying the knot! It’s sweet that they just want to take things step by step and in the traditional order.
Gwen is reportedly even freezing her eggs until she and Blake are totally ready to commit to taking care of a baby. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Gwen doesn’t want to take any chances with her fertility! “Gwen is freezing her eggs because she wants to have a baby with Blake,” an insider close to Gwen revealed to In Touch. “She’d love to have a girl — plus Gwen knows her boys would love to have another sibling — and wants to give Blake this opportunity to have a child that’s biologically his. But she doesn’t want her age to prevent that from happening.” Way to plan ahead!
And the couple have already begun practicing their parenting skills together so that they’ll be prepared for any family expansion in the future. Over spring break, the singer brought her toddler, Apollo, and her two other boys Kingston, nine, and Zuma, seven, to Blake’s Oklahoma ranch. She even shared a video of her country man and her littlest one walking along a lake shore together. So basically Blake’s already a stellar step-dad to her kids so we just know he’d make an awesome biological dad too. What a cute family!
What do you think of Blake and Gwen’s decision to wait for a baby, HollywoodLifers? Do you think this means they’ll be getting married soon?
