Just as the summer of break-ups comes to a finish (cue Wake Me Up When September Ends), there is a silver lining – if reports and sources are to be believed, country singer Blake Shelton and his No Doubt partner, Gwen Stefani are going to walk down the aisle!
If one can recall, they met while both being judges on singing talent show, The Voice. It was since then that they have made no bones about their romance, packing on the PDA and attending red carpet events together. There have also been multiple Instagram and other social media posts, because who wants to hide when you’re madly in love with someone, am I right?!
In an explosive, no-holds-barred interview in Harper’s Bazaar August issue, Stefani was very candid about her life as one of the biggest stars in the industry with her band and later as a solo artist, selling millions of albums worldwide, winning awards and being a major style icon of the 90s. Her life seemed set: she was rocking stardom, had a handsome husband at her side – Englishman Gavin Rossdale and three beautiful sons. But it soon came crashing down one day after the Grammys, when reports emerged of Gavin having an affair with the nanny. For Gwen, it was a storm she didn’t see coming, and in her own words, “It was the beginning of hell. Like, six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret”.
As she was going through her personal fire, country music’s golden couple – Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, were also facing their own issues. Though neither of them have set the record straight and made public the reason for their divorce, many people are pointing fingers at Miranda for infidelity. For Gwen and Blake, they each had shoulders to rely on, a friend who was going through the exact same thing at exactly the same time. The rest, as they say, is history.
And now, the couple are going to marry each other. Yay! They have apparently hired Jerri Woolworth, one of Hollywood’s biggest wedding planners for their big day. As more reports emerge, we will keep you updated.
