Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are looking to cement their relationship further as they consider having a baby via surrogacy
The couple, who have been together for three years, want to have a child together. A possible marriage may also be on the cards.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are taking a major step forward in their relationship. The couple is looking to have a baby through a surrogate.
US Weekly reports that an insider has revealed that after three years of dating, Shelton and Stefani are narrowing down on a surrogate to carry their child. The source says, “They are in the final stages of choosing the woman who will carry their baby. It’s extremely important to Gwen that she give Blake a biological child, and Blake is so excited.” The couple is determined to have a baby. Even though Blake is happy being present in the lives of Gwen's sons from her previous marriage, he wants children of his own, reveals the insider.
The singer loves the relationship Blake has with her sons, and the source adds that “Gwen just is so in awe of the love Blake has, not only for her but for the boys." Seeing his relationship with her sons, Gwen seems determined to have a biological child with Blake. The Daily Mail reports, that in March, Blake spoke to the 'Today Show' about his special relationship with Gwen's children. "It's easy to fall in love with those kids, they're special," he revealed. The singer also revealed that parenting has begun to come naturally to him. 'It's definitely an instinct that kind of kicks in. There are days where you go, "Oh my God, when does school start?" An hour later you're going, "God, I can't wait 'til they get home. They're so damn funny," continues Shelton.
The 49-year-old singer has three sons, Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10 and Apollo, four, with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, a relationship she was in for 14 years. Blake has been married twice himself, first to his long-time girlfriend Kaynette Gern and then to fellow country music star Miranda Lambert. Both times, he never had any children.
Shelton and Stefani have been together since 2015 when they officially announced they were dating. USA Today reports, that last Sunday fans almost thought Blake was going to propose during the People's Choice Awards. When the singer was on stage accepting the award for best competition TV show for 'The Voice' along with Carson Daly, he called Gwen on stage shouting "I love her!". When Gwen came on stage fans were expecting a proposal but nothing happened. Instead, Gwen laughed and said, "What am I doing up here?", looking at the crowd she continued, "I'm so excited to be with Blake Shelton."
