Gwen Stefani is not expecting a “miracle baby at 46,” despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can bust the report. It’s really just a bait-and-switch, one that even contradicts previous covers.

The new issue of In Touch, which came out on Wednesday, exclaims on the cover, “Blake’s Joy Over Gwen’s Miracle Baby At 46!” The magazine makes it seem like Stefani is expecting, particularly with the cover lines “Blake’s emotional reaction” and “Gwen hopes they’re having a girl.” The story inside further declares, “At 46, Gwen Stefani is determined to give Blake Shelton a family of his own — and now it’s happening!”

But not so fast. After trying to hook readers with the impression that Stefani is pregnant, the article itself actually takes a different route. “Gwen is freezing her eggs because she wants to have a baby with Blake,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying. “She’d love to have a girl — plus Gwen knows her boys would love to have another sibling — and wants to give Blake this opportunity to have a baby that’s biologically his . But she doesn’t want her age to prevent that from happening. Even though Blake is insisting he doesn’t need biological children, Gwen isn’t taking any chances.”

In Touch goes on to say, “Gwen, who turns 47 this year, knows the clock is ticking.” Adds the alleged tipster, “Even though Blake says having a biological child doesn’t matter to him, Gwen will do whatever it takes to make certain that if he changes his mind, the eggs will be frozen and available. They have discussed using a surrogate. Blake is very touched Gwen is going to such great lengths to make him happy, especially since there is absolutely no pressure on her to do it. But he will be by her side for the process, which can be painful.”

But more incredible than this proposed “miracle baby” is that In Touch expects its readers to have short memories. In December the magazine published an issue that announced Stefani was “pregnant.” Then in January, the outlet said she was “having a girl.” So, how is it now, in March, that Stefani isn’t pregnant at all, but freezing her eggs in hopes of having a child?

Simple. Those two previous cover stories were 100 percent false, just like Gossip Cop said they were at the time. But since Stefani is obviously not pregnant, In Touch decided to try to lure readers with a new angle about a “miracle baby.” And now Gossip Cop must issue one of signature warnings: Don’t fall for tabloid trickery like this. It’s not worth the paper it’s printed on.
