A tabloid claims Gwen Stefani announced she's pregnant in the middle of her "secret" wedding to Blake Shelton. In reality, the singer didn't get married and she's not expecting a baby. Gossip Cop can debunk the phony claims.
According to Life & Style, the two music stars secretly tied the knot in front of 200 guests at Shelton's Oklahoma ranch. The unreliable outlet, however, doesn't bother to mention when the supposed nuptials took place. Still, an alleged insider maintains that Stefani is also pregnant with a baby girl, adding, "She broke the baby news during her vows and everyone erupted in screams of joy."
As for the ceremony, the supposed source claims the No Doubt singer had "six bridesmaids, three live bands and four wedding cakes," while the country star was in charge of the food, which included "a feast" of barbeque items. From there, the seemingly phony tipster says Shelton's "The Voice" co-stars Adam Levine and Kelly Clarkson have been named "godparents" of his unborn child.
There's no truth to the magazine's storyline, which has been recycled countless times. Gossip Cop first debunked this premise back in 2016 when Life & Style's sister publication, OK!, falsely claimed Stefani and Shelton had a secret wedding at his ranch in Oklahoma. In 2018, Star made up another story about Stefani and Shelton getting married on his ranch.
Later that year, Gossip Cop called out In Touch for wrongly reporting that Stefani was pregnant and getting married to her boyfriend at his ranch. And just last month, the National Enquirer contended Stefani and Shelton had a "low-key" wedding at his Oklahoma ranch, and were also having a baby through a surrogate.
There are two possibilities here. Either Stefani and Shelton are getting secretly married at his Oklahoma ranch every few months, or this ongoing saga is made-up. We'll go with the second option. In addition to it be astounding how many times the tabloids have reused this bogus narrative, Life & Style has actually contradicted its previous articles. Last year, for example, the magazine insisted Stefani and Shelton already had a "quickie" marriage in Mexico.
Despite the inordinate amount of times we've debunked this recurring theme, Gossip Cop once again checked in with Stefani's rep, who assures us on the record the latest report is similarly untrue. The singer and her boyfriend aren't secretly married and they're not expecting a baby girl. Her spokesperson even joked, "It's a very long ceremony and pregnancy." Unfortunately, we suspect the tabloids will be throwing another imaginary bash on Shelton's Oklahoma ranch very soon.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
