Blake Shelton and Gwen don’t see eye to eye on the expansion of their family. “She wants a baby with Blake and presses the issue again and again.” the source spilled. Blake isn’t sold on the idea of having more kids and is said to be hanging fire.
They were on The Voice together for seven seasons, and it gave them something in common.
“They used to do everything together,” the source said, adding that it might have been too much time. But now “they’re both distracted by their work.” They are both being pulled in separate directions.
“Times are tough for Gwen and Blake,” the source said. “They’re spending a lot of time apart and the relationship is suffering. Friends are worried that if they don’t address their problems before they spiral out of control, divorce might be in the cards for them.”
Of course, there are other issues in their marriage a source said, They’ve been arguing nonstop, “Gwen and Blake both have habits that annoy each other, like when Blake tracks mud through the house or leaves a mess.
“And what he eats grosses Gwen out. She’s always on his case about dieting.” The couple even got into a fight on their July 3 wedding anniversary. “Gwen started picking on Blake for eating too much and drinking too much beer,” the insider said. “They exchanged some choice words before Blake left in a huff.”
Gwen’s boys are also an issue for the couple. Blake raves about being a stepfather, but Gwen thinks Blake is too easygoing with Kingston, 17, Zuma, 14, and Apollo, 9, her sons from her first marriage to Gavin Rossdale.
“Blake’s just like one big kid and the boys love him, but she wants to see him toughen up more,” the source said. “Under her watch, they have homework, chores, activities, strict bedtimes, and no junk food. Blake doesn’t enforce those things, so Gwen is always left looking like the bad cop.”
The source said, “Gwen is a big believer in therapy and feels it could really help her and Blake,” the source continued, that Shelton is not a big fan of therapy. “He thinks they should be able to work things out on their own.”
“There’s growing concern that Gwen and Blake need to fix these issues now if they’re going to save their marriage and make things work for the long term,” the insider concluded. “Obviously there’s still a whole lot of love there — and nobody wants to see them divorced. Hopefully, it won’t come to that.”
