Is Gwen Stefani pregnant? The No Doubt songstress and her man Blake Shelton have been dating since November 2015, and now that it’s been two years into their relationship, the divorcées are not in any rush to walk down the aisle — but they are ready to take the next big step in their relationship! The former Voice co-stars have been trying to get pregnant — and now Gwen is sporting what seems to be a baby bump!
Gwen took to Instagram on Friday, Nov. 24 to share a sweet couples photo with her boyfriend as they celebrated Thanksgiving together, but all fans could focus on was Gwen’s midsection. In the shot, she wore an oversized knit sweater and she turned to the side as Blake planted a kiss on her cheek and it seemed like she had a bun in the oven. Fans flooded the comments section, and they were dying to know if Gwen and Blake are really expecting baby No. 1 together!
“OMG beautiful family, you are pregnant?” one fan wrote, while another commented, “OMG you look like you are pregnant. It will be nice if you give him a child.”
This isn’t the first time Gwen has been spotted with what seems like a baby bump. On Oct. 31, Gwen stepped out in a skintight mermaid costume for Halloween and her famously flat tummy was gone. In its place: what appeared to be a baby bump! A source told In Touch exclusively, “The costume was very fitted, for sure, but it just looked like a baby bump to me,” said an eyewitness, who observed the 48-year-old mom trick-or-treating in LA with sons Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 3. “She’s very fit, so it really jumped out at me. It looked obvious.”
Blake would be thrilled if it were a baby bump. When a fan at the Nov. 2 launch of his new clothing line, BS by Blake Shelton, at Macy’s Herald Square in NYC asked if he’s going to have kids with Gwen, The Voice coach replied, “I hope. We will see.”
The country crooner was previously married to fellow country music star Miranda, but they announced their split in 2015, and sources say that the former couples’ differing views on starting a family was one of the big factors in their split. At the 2017 Country Music Association Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 8, Miranda threw some subtle shade at her former hubby. Eagle-eyed fans noticed Miranda gave a telling eye-roll when she sang the lyric, “If you take her, you might hate her and be left with just a ray.” Naturally, viewers assumed her sassy facial expression was referring to Blake’s relationship with Gwen.
But the drama doesn’t seem to faze Blake. All the 41-year-old singer wants is to be a father — a role he’s been practicing with Gwen’s three sons, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale.
Gwen is 48 years old, but since she conceived Apollo when she was 42, sources say that the couple is “incredibly hopeful” that they will be able to have a baby of their own. “They believe there is still a chance for Gwen,” the insider said. Just don’t expect a baby announcement any time soon. “Friends are saying that Gwen is pregnant right now,” said the source. But given the No Doubt frontwoman’s age, “friends don’t expect a pregnancy announcement until she is well into
her fourth month, if not even longer than that.”
One person this won’t sit right with is Gavin, who In Touch exclusively revealed is seemingly growing bitter about Blake’s presence in his sons’ lives. “The kids talk about Blake all the time,” said a source. “So Gavin asked the boys to stop talking about Blake. Gavin told Gwen that since he only has the kids half the time, he doesn’t want to be talking about his ex-wife’s boyfriend.”
