Recent rumors surrounding Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have sparked speculation that the celebrity couple might be expecting their first biological child together. If true, this exciting news would mark Gwen’s fourth child.
Blake recently shared some insight into his close relationship with Gwen’s three sons, highlighting the profound impact they’ve had on his life as their stepfather.
Now, sources suggest that the couple is about to embark on a new chapter of parenthood with the anticipation of a biological child.
In a candid interview with People late last year, Shelton opened up about the deep bond he shares with Gwen’s sons — Kingston, 17, Apollo, 15, and Zuma, nine. The country music star revealed a newfound understanding of parental responsibility after becoming their stepfather.
“I’ve had step-parents,” Shelton said. “I think it’s, in some ways, harder, more difficult. I try to be careful about when to step back and be smart about when to step back and just talk, but no matter what, I’m always there if I’m needed.”
While he’s embraced the role of a stepfather with genuine love, the possibility of adding a biological child to their family could bring a unique joy.
Sources close to the couple claim that Stefani underwent several months of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the hopes of conceiving a child, according to Today’s Parent. However, it’s reported that Gwen decided to stop the IVF process and the couöle began trying to conceive naturally.
Before their 2020 wedding, Gwen and Blake were reportedly undergoing IVF treatments in the hopes of expanding their family. The pressures associated with the process began to impact Gwen, leading the couple to shift their focus towards focusing on the children they already had. Despite a temporary pause, the couple consulted a specialist in 2022, resulting in Gwen’s apparent successful conception.
Sources reveal that Gwen, at the age of 54, has dedicated herself to various practices aimed at enhancing her overall well-being and fertility. This includes meditation, maintaining a calm mindset, and regularly having acupuncture.
As rumors swirl and fans eagerly await official confirmation, the prospect of Gwen and Blake expanding their family is exciting to many.
