Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are NOT “having a baby,” despite a new tabloid cover story wrongly claiming she’s “pregnant.” Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the claim. A source close to the situation tells us it’s “total BS.”
The new issue of OK! hit newsstands on Wednesday with the cover line: “Gwen & Blake: We’re Pregnant!” Inside the magazine, under the headline “We’re Having A Baby,” it’s said Stefani and Shelton “want to start a family.” It’s further stated “insiders believe that, just a few weeks in, Blake and Gwen already have a baby on the way.”
“Gwen made an appointment with a doctor in late October after signs pointed to her being pregnant,” a so-called “source” alleges to the tabloid. “She’s already changed her lifestyle in preparation for the possibility. And Blake would be thrilled to become a dad.”
So, after declaring on the cover that Stefani is pregnant, OK! does a bit of a bait-and-switch, with the accompanying article only speculating about a possible pregnancy. And if that’s not eyebrow-raising enough, the outlet claims Stefani’s three kids don’t know she and Shelton are more than “friends,” which would be rather strange if they were currently expecting a baby together.
OK! simply has a fertile imagination. Look no further than the magazine’s 2013 bait-and-switch cover falsely announcing Shelton and then-wife Miranda Lambert were “having twins.” Just like there were no babies on the way for Shelton then, there isn’t one now with Stefani, either. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source, who exclusively assures us the latest tale from the tabloid is “total BS.”
