Ever since the world learned that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating unsubstantiated reports about their future together have circulated on social media pretty much non-stop.
We’ve heard that Gwen and Blake are engaged more times than we can count, but thus far, there’s still no official word from the couple on that one.
The other most common rumor, of course, is that Gwen is pregnant with Blake’s baby.
The Voice coaches have also remained mum on that one, but now a source close to Gwen and Blake is offering some interesting info with regard to the couple’s future plans to start a family of their own.
The insider tells Life & Style that Gwen and Blake do plan to get married (though they’re not officially engaged) – but Gwen wants to get knocked up before she walks down the aisle:
“They’re trying to have a baby first,” says the source.
“That’s their main focus right now. [Gwen’s] determined to have another baby and carry it herself, even though Blake has said it doesn’t matter if they adopt or get a surrogate.”
The insider says Gwen has already undergone several unsuccessful in vitro treatments, but she’s not discouraged by the lack of results:
“Physically and emotionally, it was just a lot for her. So she’s trying to get pregnant naturally for the time being,” the source claims.
Wait … IVF didn’t work, so she’s back to the old-fashioned way?
We’re not sure that’s how these things work, especially at 47 years of age.
Look, we know Janet Jackson just had a baby at 50, but she’s sort of the exception that proves the rule.
Celebrities have the rest of us beat in terms of wealth, influence, and amount of food with decorative flakes of real gold eaten, and it’s only natural that after a certain amount of time, it all starts to go to their heads.
It’s easy to see how even the most humble stars could start thinking that they’re physically superior to the peasants, but if 2016 taught us anything, it’s that famous people are mere mortals.
We’re not trying to tell Gwen how to live her life …
… but since she could easily afford a surrogate and she could give some poor orphan the best childhood ever, she may want to consider other options.
