ET have exclusively reported that although marriage is on the cards for Shelton, 41, and Stefani, 48, having a baby together is more important.
“They are very committed to one another and this is a forever thing,” a source close to the couple said. “However, more important to them right now is having a baby together.”
“Gwen would love nothing more than to give Blake his first child,” the source continued. “Blake is dying to be a father. He loves Gwen's kids, [which has] made him realise he could be a good father.”
A baby would be Shelton's first child and the fourth for Stefani who is mum to three boys from a past relationship.
The couple have been dating since 2015.
