Gwen Stefani is not a "pregnant bride," despite a new tabloid cover story falsely claiming she's marrying Blake Shelton and expecting his baby. Gossip Cop can reveal this report was made-up. In fact, it's not the first time this storyline has been peddled.
In 2016, Life & Style wrongly announced Stefani was a "pregnant bride," along with Miranda Lambert. Now nearly two years later, the magazine is recycling that manufactured narrative (see the covers below). "After three years of unwedded bliss Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani head down the aisle — with a big announcement to make," contends this new article. According to the outlet, "Friends are buzzing that there's both a wedding and a baby on the way for Gwen and Blake."
"Gwen will be a pregnant bride," a so-called "insider" is quoted as saying, claiming, "Friends believe she's expecting already, and she's not about to cancel her wedding because of a pregnancy. Gwen may even make the baby announcement at the actual wedding." To be clear, the publication has no confirmation Stefani is expecting. This is only based on what unnamed "friends believe," with an untraceable source speculating when an "announcement" could be made. But what "friends are buzzing" is not a substitute for facts.
Still, this "insider" purports to know Shelton and Stefani "both want a girl," and guesses she "could have easily spent up to $420,000 on [fertility] treatments." Again, the tabloid's tipster doesn't know for sure, but is making an assumption with no evidence to back it up. The alleged snitch goes on to detail the supposed wedding plans, such as how Stefani's gown will be "mostly white," and Shelton "wants his favorite country dishes" served. As for the when and where, the magazine's source maintains they "keep changing the location," with Oklahoma, Hawaii and Hollywood among the possibilities. No timeline is given.
For the record, in the cover story from nearly two years ago, it was said Stefani and Shelton were planning to marry at Christmas, with an anonymous "insider" similarly asserting that "friends believe she already could be pregnant" and "expecting a baby wouldn't make her postpone her nuptials." Sound familiar? What's more is that this same outlet also did a "wedding & a baby" cover story for Shelton and Stefani this past April.
In that tale, the publication claimed, "Pals believe the pair are finally getting married because she's pregnant more than two years after trying for a baby." If the No Doubt front woman was really pregnant then, she'd be at least four months along now. But when Stefani stepped out for church a few days ago with her sons, there was no sign of a baby bump. Additionally, it was also alleged in that prior article that she and Shelton would be tying the knot in Mexico this summer.
Well, summer is nearly over, and Mexico isn't even mentioned as a potential wedding location in this latest report. These stories are all inconsistent because the tabloid's "insiders" aren't reliable, and the magazine appears to be making it all up. In fact, shortly after that April cover story, Shelton himself said that while he thinks about marrying Stefani, it won't be "any time soon or anything." It's certainly possible they'll one day take that step, and reps for the couple haven't responded to requests for comment, but at this point fans shouldn't expect Life & Style to have the real information.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
