Why it 'isn't possible currently' for Gwen Stefani to marry Blake Shelton: report

No, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton aren't headed down the aisle anytime soon.

Despite incessant speculation that the couple, who are both coaches on "The Voice," are engaged or planning a wedding, a new People report indicates that a wedding for the pair "isn't possible currently," according to a source, and it's because of Stefani's faith.

The No Doubt frontwoman wants a church wedding with the country crooner, because she is a practicing Roman Catholic, but because the Roman Catholic Church prohibits remarriage after divorce until the earlier marriage is annulled, the couple is currently at a roadblock.

While the outlet reports that annulment "can be a lengthy process," it's unclear whether or not it's being stalled because of Stefani's ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, to whom she was married for 13 years, the church or some other reason.

Despite having to wait for a wedding, the couple is "very serious," with both singers certain that they've found "the one" in each other, according to a friend.

"It's definitely headed toward marriage," the friend told People. "They’re all very like-minded and comfortable with each other. Gwen brings this sparkle to the country world. Her love for Blake is clear, and she’s been embraced by everyone."

"They fall more and more in love with one another, and their happiness quotient keeps rising," the source added.

Gwen Stefani shares sons Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 5, with ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, who she split from in 2015. She and Shelton confirmed their relationship the next year.
