Are Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton having a baby before their wedding? A tabloid report is claiming exactly that. Gossip Cop can reveal the truth.

According to In Touch, Stefani and Shelton “have shelved their plans to have a winder wedding.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Right before Thanksgiving, Gwen started having second thoughts about getting married again so quickly, so she talked to Blake and realized that he feels the same way.”

But, says the magazine, “the couple aren’t putting their plans to start a family on hold.” Alleges the supposed snitch, “They’ve talked about surrogates and adopting, but Gwen really wants to try IVF first. And given her age, they know they can’t waste any time. They can get married whenever they want, but a baby needs to come first.”

It’s further claimed Stefani “wants a girl,” while Shelton is “hoping for a boy.” Adds the outlet’s alleged tipster, “They don’t mind doing things out of order.” Of course, these quotes are almost word-for-word the same as those featured in this week’s Life & Style cover story, which falsely claimed Stefani and Shelton are “having a baby.”

This is just the In Touch version of the same story, and it’s coming from the publication that wrongly alleged Stefani was pregnant in December 2015. That’s a year ago. And in the time since, Gossip Cop has been right with all of our marriage and baby debunkings, while the tabloids have been consistently inaccurate. The truth here is just as it was last year: Stefani and Shelton have no immediate plans for a baby or a wedding, regardless of the order.
