The plan for a wedding and a baby has been put on hold for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Ever since The Voice judges confirmed their relationship on Nov. 4, 2015, they have been inseparable and intent on expanding their family. However, marriage and kids are off the table — for now — and you can find out exactly why in the video above.
Us Weekly is reporting that this kind of fairytale life is no longer a priority for Gwen and Blake, but that doesn't mean they don't love each other anymore. The couple is actually stronger than ever but has decided to focus on each other and Gwen's three sons — Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4 — whom she shares with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
A source said the country singer is "absolutely devoted" to Gwen's kids. "Blake is extremely attentive, loving and doting towards Gwen and the boys... Blake has always wanted children. 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."
Gwen and Blake also have an "easy, effortless love" which has helped them get to this point in making the decision that kids and a wedding aren't something that needs to happen right away. They are still enjoying their alone time and the freedom to vacation on their own without a baby in tow.
