From the moment the world first learned that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating, few of us thought it would last.
We were so wrong. Soon enough, rumors that the couple is headed for the altar began circulating non-stop.
For the most part, Gwen and Blake have been coy about their plans, hinting that there are wedding bells in their future.
At the same time though, they've stopped just short of providing a timeline for their engagement and wedding.
Both Blake and Gwen enjoy the attention of particularly obsessive fan bases, however, in case you haven't noticed.
As a result, the hunt for clues that The Voice stars and Grammy-winning singers are getting ready to wed is never-ending.
Which brings us to this week ...
Now, one outlet is claiming that Shelton, who is twice divorced, has taken an important step toward proposing to Stefani.
Gwen, who was married to Gavin Rossdale from 2002-2016 and has three sons, is also more religious than many people know.
“Gwen was raised in a Catholic family and religion is a big part of her life,” a source close to the situation tells Celebrity Insider.
“Shelton converting to Catholicism is a final step towards the altar."
And that's not the only major change that the 41-year-old Blake has reportedly made in his lifestyle in recent weeks.
Apparently, Stefani has asked her future husband to quit the activity he's most famous for aside from singing so that he can be an ideal stepfather to her three kids:
“Shelton has given up drinking," says the insider.
If you know the man, both on and off stage, you know that Blake's drinking has become the stuff of legend over the past decade-plus.
Shelton's booze consumption is a significant part of his persona, but the source says he was happy to put the plug in the jug for good.
When Gwen asked him to, that was the only motivation he needed. (That's gotta sting if you're Miranda Lambert, don't you think?)
So it's sounding more and more like Gwen and Blake are getting their ducks in a row for the day fans have been anticipating for years.
Unfortunately, it looks as though the wait isn't over quite yet.
“I don’t think it’s anytime soon or anything," says the source when asked when Blake and Gwen plan to exchange vows.
Believe it or not, we're guessing that Blake would prefer that the couple's wedding take place sooner rather than later.
This man has gone from guzzling bourbon on a nightly basis to choking down nothing but vinegar-y communion wine.
Seriously. This is Blake Shelton we're talking about. The least Gwen can do is reward the man by putting a ring on it!
