Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's relationship has seen a lot of ups and downs. Earlier there were rumors of cheating and even Blake's 'reluctance' in popping the question which marred the relationship. Now, the news is that the duo has put their plan for a wedding and a baby on hold. Ever since The Voice judges confirmed their relationship on November 4, 2015, they have been inseparable and intent on expanding their family. However, marriage and kids are off the table: for now.

According to reports by Us Weekly, the couple has decided that even though they reportedly want a child together, they’re not going out of their way to plan for a baby.

“Blake and Gwen have decided to put plans to have a baby on hold,” an insider told the magazine. “Their feeling is if it happens naturally….great. But they’ve decided not to focus on it for the time being.”

Stefani, 48, and Shelton, 41, have been trying to conceive for over a year, the source reveals. But the one blessing of their struggle is that it’s made them stronger than ever. The source says Shelton is “absolutely devoted” to Gwen’s sons, Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4. “Blake is extremely attentive, loving and doting towards Gwen and the boys.”

“Blake has always wanted children,” explains a friend. “And he’s great with Gwen’s kids, which prompted them wanting their own.” But, because they are so happy together Blake doesn't need his own child to stick around in the relationship. The source said, "He is completely at peace with the prospect of not having any biological children of his own."

Blake and Gwen have been romantically involved for almost two and a half years, and their relationship is stronger than ever which means that they’ll most likely manage to work through anything and still stay together. Whether they have a baby or not, the pair will still be very happy.
