“Over You” singer Miranda Lambert has not given up on her dream of motherhood. She and her ex-husband, NBC “Voice” coach Blake Shelton, divorced in July, but the pint-sized singer is “aching” to be a mother, Radar Online wrote in an exclusive report Friday.
Lambert, 32, was inspired “in a big way” by Oscar-winners Charlize Theron and Sandra Bullock, who adopted children even though they were single. “Now she’s her own master,” a source said about the country star, adding: Lambert “wants to explore the process [of adoption] very seriously,” and is considering carrying a baby herself.
The star wants to have a baby as soon as possible. “Miranda’s not ruling out finding a donor, but she knows it can take years so she wants to have all options available,” the source said, adding: “and the sooner the better.”
It was Shelton’s refusal to have children that led to their divorce. “Miranda’s aching to be a mom and it was Blake’s refusal that ultimately tore them apart,” the anonymous friend said.
While Lambert reportedly dreams of having a baby, Shelton has moved on with “Voice” costar Gwen Stefani. The two confirmed their relationship two weeks ago before the CMA Awards in Nashville.
Stefani, 46, tried to avoid questions about Shelton on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Friday. She even shocked the audience when she said before she joined “The Voice” she didn’t know who he was. “Before I was on ‘The Voice’ I never heard of him before. I didn’t. I hadn’t…” she said as the crowd reacted with surprise. “I’m an O.C. girl. Like, what would I know? But he knows every single 80s song. He literally is a musical jukebox. He knows everything about music, it’s crazy.”
