Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are still in the honeymoon stage months after tying the knot. Last week, the couple even celebrated their first Thanksgiving as a married couple in Oklahoma.
While speaking with People, Blake Shelton revealed that he has a special tradition with his stepsons, Apollo, Kingston, and Zuma, during Thanksgiving.
“The first year, we made a hot Flamin' Hot Cheetos turkey. We crusted it in Flamin' Hot Cheetos. The next year Apollo, or maybe it was Zuma; I can't remember. We ended up doing a Funyuns turkey, which actually tasted a lot like regular turkey. I guess whatever they put in Funyuns is the same stuff,” Shelton said.
This year, Shelton and Stefani’s children decided to wrap their turkey in bacon. And the latter proudly shared a photo of her son and husband working on their turkey.
But despite the couple’s happy Thanksgiving celebration, one publication claimed that Shelton and Stefani are dealing with something major behind closed doors.

“Blake’s pumping the brakes on getting a surrogate to have a baby with Gwen,” the unnamed source said.
Since Shelton and Stefani have been through a lot in recent months, the former doesn’t want his wife to go through such a painful process much longer.
“Gwen is obviously distressed by this decision. She feels like he’ll regret not having biological kids,” the unnamed source explained.
But ever since Shelton developed a close bond with Stefani’s children, he stopped wanting to have his own children. After all, the country singer believes that Apollo, Kingston, and Zuma are just like his own kids.

“There’s definitely nothing easy about it. I don’t know if it’s as hard or harder or not as hard as being an actual biological parent, you know? I love my stepfather and I looked up to him. And he’s the perfect father to me. So, you know, I have a good inspiration in my life on how to do this and the kind of stepdad I want to be,” he said during his appearance on The Ride With Kimo & Heather.
