After nearly three years of marriage, Blake Shelton still finds himself dumbstruck in Miranda Lambert’s presence.
While co-hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 6, Blake was so excited to bring his stunningly slimmed-down better half to the stage, he tripped all over his words.
“Already a winner tonight, [here’s] my amazingly talented, breathtakingly…tingly, beautiful, wife,” he gushed as a big, proud smile crept across his face.
Country music’s reigning power couple are both a little giddy over each other these days. “Miranda loves and adores Blake,” a source close to the duo tells Closer, revealing the singers are now working on an exciting new collaboration — getting ready for a baby!
“Everyone knows that Blake and I are completely happy in love,” Miranda has recently insisted, dismissively putting the latest tabloid rumors of their demise to rest.
“We’re very solid. That’s why we’re able to just brush it off when [these rumors] come at us. It’s actually making us stronger.”
“Miranda is looking at nuzzling up to Blake this winter to see what develops,” reports a source close to the couple. “[She] would love to be pregnant by spring 2015.”
Those close to the pair believe their recent purchase of a sprawling new home in Nashville, Tenn., where Miranda says she and Blake are looking to “put down roots,” only signals a little one can’t be that far away.
In a 2012 interview, Miranda herself made it clear that when she was 30 — the age she is now — she’d “sit down and have a conversation” with Blake about having a baby.
“I’m strong-willed,” Miranda noted in the interview, “and I don’t like the word ‘no.’”
