Looks like Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani aren’t quite ready to take their romance to the level of spending holidays with each other’s families! While Blake went home for Thanksgiving, his lady stayed in California, where she spent time with her kids at Disneyland on Nov. 27. Aww!
Gwen Stefani may be totally into her new boyfriend, Blake Shelton, but at the end of the day, her three kids come first. So instead of spending Thanksgiving weekend with the country singer, she bonded with Kingston, Zuma and Apollo, and was photographed with the boys in Disneyland on Nov. 27 with her man nowhere in sight.
Blake actually went home to Oklahoma for the weekend, according to Us Weekly, so the 46-year-old was able to focus totally on her family. She had a huge smile on her face while walking around the happiest place on Earth with the kids, and don’t worry about the couple spending too much time apart…they’ll be back together by Monday for another live episode of The Voice!
Things have been heating up quickly between Blake and Gwen — after all, they both did just get divorced over the summer. As we previously reported, it’s the No Doubt singer who’s been setting the pace, but the 39-year-old doesn’t really have a problem at how rapidly things are progressing. “Blake is having fun and really enjoying his relationship with Gwen,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But if anyone is moving fast, it’s Gwen. She is bringing up a lot of future talk and Blake is very happy, but he definitely wants to take his time and get to know her more.”
Meanwhile, Blake’s ex, Miranda Lambert, also surrounded herself with family for the holiday by flying home to Texas where her parents live. Obviously, the 32-year-old has had a pretty hard time seeing Blake and Gwen’s relationship thrust in her face just months after her divorce, but she seems to be keeping her head up. “Marriage is a tough business and we gave it our best college try,” she told Cosmopolitan. “Some of [moving on] might be nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey and going, ‘Man this sucks right now.'”
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised Blake and Gwen spent the holiday apart? Do you think it was the right decision?
