Miranda Lambert surprisingly revealed that she secretly got married to a police officer. There have been rumors for a while now that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were planning their own wedding. So why won’t they have a quick wedding like Lambert? Here is everything you need to know.

Blake Shelton reportedly thinks Miranda Lambert’s timing is “curious”

A source claims to know how Blake Shelton reacted to his ex-wife getting married. “Blake commented to Gwen [that] the timing of Miranda’s announcement of the marriage was certainly curious,” the insider told Us Weekly.

Lambert announced she got married to NYPD police officer Brendan McLoughlin on Feb. 16. She posted a picture from their wedding day on Instagram with the caption, “In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to share some news. I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you Brendan Mcloughlin for loving me for…. me.”

This announcement came not long after the couple reportedly got into a confrontation at a restaurant. Lambert reportedly dumped a salad on a woman whose husband got into an argument with her friend in the men’s room, according to People. It has since been reported that “her friend” could have been Mcloughlin.

Shelton reportedly wasn’t given a heads up that Lambert married. “Blake found about the wedding at the same time everyone else did,” a source told Us Weekly. The reason why is pretty understandable.

“Blake was not given a heads-up and doesn’t know her new husband,” continued the source. “Since they split they have had almost zero contact.”

There have been rumors that Shelton and Stefani are planning their own wedding, but they have yet to do it. So why aren’t they getting married quickly?

Shelton and Stefani are reportedly taking their time because of her kids

Things are different for the couple since Stefani has three sons with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. That reportedly has led them to take their time.

“Gwen has three children to consider and Blake has been extremely aware of this at every step,” a source told Us Weekly. “The timing of Gwen and Blake’s wedding date is a work in progress. … Just because Miranda got married in a quickie random situation doesn’t change anything for Gwen and Blake.”

The couple has had to address wedding rumors for quite some time. Ellen DeGeneres asked Stefani if they’re getting married in 2018. “So if I say ‘we are’ then I say ‘we are’ and I say ‘no, we’re not’ then that would be sad too,” said Stefani.

When pressed further she said “I love weddings. The kids love him. We love him.” Her interview didn’t exactly clear anything up, but options seem to be open.

So Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani want to take their time before deciding to get married because she has three kids. They have yet to confirm or deny whether they plan on getting married.
