So much for friendly exes — this former husband and wife duo is straight-up competing! In Touch has exclusively learned that both Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are determined to marry their
rebounds significant others — and it’s race to see who will get there first!
And it looks like Miranda and her beau, Anderson East, are already making moves. “They are pushing to run away and elope by year’s end,” an insider tells In Touch exclusively. Though they’ve long dreamed of a “countrypalooza-type wedding” with performances by some of the biggest names — and their closest friends — in the country music industry, they’ve shifted their focus. The insider adds, “They’ll make time during the holidays to elope and have a honeymoon.”
Blake and his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, have made it pretty clear how they feel about one another and their commitment to the future. The two are currently trying for a baby via IVF, and have talked to each other about getting married down the road. A source recently told In Touch that there’s a wedding in Blake and Gwen’s future — and Blake has made it clear that he’s thought about it, too!
He recently dropped a music video for his song “I’ll Name the Dogs,” which features countless weddings and makes his feelings about the subject pretty clear. In the lyrics, he croons, “I’m talkin’ you and me with the same street name/Same last name, same everything/It’s a real thing, how I feel thing/So I’mma go on and take a swing.” So sweet!
While the two exes may be competing to see who can get hitched first, they are close to being in their healthiest place since their marriage ended in 2015. An additional source told In Touch that the two are planning to meet face-to-face — for the first time since their divorce — and put everything out there. The source told In Touch, “Miranda is so looking forward to this. She really feels the time has finally come to lay everything out on the table. Who knows? Maybe this meeting will have them walk away as friends. Either way, they’ll definitely be in a better place.”
