It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two years since the world learned that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating.
At the time, the relationship was widely regarded as a rebound fling.
But now that the Voice co-hosts have stood the test of time, many fans are wondering when the long-rumored Gwen and Blake engagement rumors will be confirmed.
Gwen isn’t showing off a ring just yet, but sources close to the singer say she and Shelton are happier than ever.
“It’s really been smooth sailing for them,” a source tells Entertainment Tonight, adding:
“They don’t talk about getting married, but they talk like they are going to be together forever. They are very committed to one another and their life together.”
The insider says that while Gwen is drawn to Blake for countless reasons, it’s his relationship with her kids – 11-year-old Kingston, 9-year-old Zuma and 3-year-old Apollo – that she loves the most.
Best of all, the insider says, the feeling is mutual:
“Gwen’s kids love Blake,” the source says.
“They think he’s really cool and he’s made such an effort over the last two years to really be able to relate to them and sign on to projects he knows they’ll be impressed by.”
As for the persistent rumors that Gwen is trying to get pregnant by Blake at 47, there’s been no official word, but those who know the couple best say it’s unlikely.
“Blake and Gwen are happy, totally in love and are not actively trying to have babies right now,” says one insider.
So why the constant pregnancy reports?
Well, the insider says much of the speculation is a resukt of Gwen’s physique.
“Gwen is so tiny, if she has a big lunch, she can appear to be 3 months along,” the source insists.
So it looks like for the time being at least, Blake will have to settle for being in love, rich, famous, and adored by Gwen’s three kids.
We’re sure he’ll cope.
Naturally, the approaching anniversary has sparked rumors that Blake will propose to Gwen to mark the occasion of their first date.
We suppose it’s possible.
But if we’ve learned anything about these two over the past two years, it’s that they love disproving rumors.
