“Used to Love You” singer Gwen Stefani is seeking to become pregnant with Blake Shelton’s child, In Touch Weekly claimed in a cover story Wednesday. The 46-year-old star will reportedly undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF).
In bold letters, the cover reads, “Blake & Gwen fertility treatment shocker: twins!” Three bulleted items add: “Gwen: I want two girls,” “Their secret engagement — and all the details” and “Her weight gain, emotional roller coaster and therapy.”
Although the cover makes it sound as if she’s already pregnant, the singer has only begun the IVF process. “Gwen’s been told by fertility doctors that she needs to relax her strict diet and workout regimen as she hopes to become pregnant with Blake’s child,” a source told In Touch Weekly.
The possibility of having multiple children is something that excites her. “Gwen has been told the odds of having twins increase with IVF, and she would be thrilled if that happens,” the source said.
There may be some bad news for those who are hoping to see a Stefani-Shelton baby. Gossip Cop said the cover story was nothing more than a bunch of lies. “In Touch is just piling lies on top of lies with no regard for accuracy, or even consistency, given its own prior ‘reporting,’” the site wrote. A representative of the No Doubt vocalist previously told Gossip Cop the rumor about her pregnancy was “untrue” and that the magazine “just makes stuff up.”
But Stefani isn’t doing anything to help squelch speculation about the couple. The singer fueled engagement rumors when she posted a photograph on Instagram that appeared to show a diamond sparkler on her ring finger. While the vocalist was promoting her friendship with comedian Chelsea Handler, fans were more interested in a possible engagement ring. Unsurprisingly, she didn’t respond to any of them online.
