Will he do it now? Gwen Stefani's kids are reportedly pressuring Blake Shelton to pop the big question
Gwen Stefani's kids want to see her and Blake Shelton get married and have been asking the singer to make the move.
Blake Shelton has already confessed that marriage has been on his mind and it seems like Gwen Stefani's kids, Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4, who she had with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale also agree that it finally is time for him to come forward and pop the big question.
A source close to the singer told Hollywood Life that the kids have been trying their best to make sure Blake gets the idea that they want him to ask Gwen to marry him. “Gwen’s kids are starting to drop subtle hints to Blake that they would love it if he would marry their mom,” the source said. "They tell Blake that they love him and always want him around."
Blake and Gwen's kids have a good bond and the photos of them together say it all. They are often spotted hanging out with the singer and recently spent Easter together. With such a comfortable bond between all of them, it is no surprise that they would love for Blake to be part of the family one day.
"The kids put pressure on Blake and make it known to him that they wish he was their stepdad. Their bond is strong with Blake and the older boys are confused as to why mom and Blake aren’t married already," the source added. At the same time, since Gwen is busy kick off a Las Vegas residency on June 27, Blake is happy to fill in the shoes and take care of the boys.
"Her kids will be with her and around often backstage, but there will also be plenty of times when Blake [Shelton] will be on some babysitting duties and he is more than excited to be in ‘dad mode’ when Gwen is working,” another source told Hollywood Life. Meanwhile, we know that marriage has been an idea that Blake has been thinking for a quite some time now.
Talking to CMT, Blake said, “I think about [marrying her]. I don’t think it’s anytime soon or anything. The more time that goes by, I guess, the closer you’d be getting to that." At the same time, Gwen has often spoken about marriage as well. Appearing on Ellen's show she confessed that she too has given marriage some thought.
