Gwen Stefani shoots down rumors of engagement with Blake Shelton, says he's still her 'boyfriend'
In an interview with Ellen, Gwen was asked about her engagement to Blake which she was quick to clarify saying that the couple were neither engaged nor married.
Gwen Stefani has officially dismissed all rumors about her possible engagement with Blake Shelton. The couple who've been going out for over three years have been skirting engagement rumors for a while now.
On Tuesday's episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', Gwen was once again asked about her engagement by Ellen and she was quick to dismiss the subject. Ellen began by saying, "Blake (Shelton) told me that y’all are engaged now." Surprised, Gwen laughed off her statement saying, "No he didn't. No we're not. No we're not. No we're not." DeGeneres continued to pry. "Yes, he told me you're engaged. So let’s talk about that." But 49-year-old singer stood her ground. "What are you talking about?" Stefani exclaimed. "We're not. We're not engaged, and we’re not married. And he’s my boyfriend still."
Ellen refused to give up and continued her friendly interrogation, "When will you get married?" she asked and then tried to persuade Gwen to pop the question herself. "I don’t know," Stefani answered. "Every time I come on here, I think it’s gonna be like, 'I got this.' But I don’t. I don’t. But I do like talking about him. He’s awesome." Gwen swiftly steered the conversation and started talking about her new single with her beau titled 'You Make It Feel Like Christmas'. In the video, Blake and Gwen, 42, get in the holiday spirit in a romantic comedy-themed Christmas video featuring ball gowns, Santa Claus and a good old-fashioned food fight.
She spoke about the experience of shooting the video with Blake. “It was really crazy because Blake actually hates doing music videos. Hates!" Stefani revealed. "I got him to do it, and his manager was like, 'He'll do it, but he'll only do a performance thing.' We just kept talking him into more and more and more."
At one point the conversation turned a little emotional when the women started talking about their friendship. "Gwen deserves everything she has, she deserves this love, she deserves the life that she has and the career, because she went through a lot," Ellen told the audience.
Blake and Gwen were recently in the news when it was revealed that they were looking to have a baby together via surrogacy. An insider shared the information that after three years of dating, Blake and Gwen 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 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.
