Rumors about “The Voice” stars Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton tying the knot soon have been swirling around for a while now. But is Gavin Rossdale’s co-parenting drama getting in the way of their relationship?

Shelton knew what he was getting into when he decided to pursue Stefani. When they officially became a couple, he made a sincere effort to be part of Stefani’s family and win the trust of Stefani’s three children, Apollo, Kingston and Zuma. Today everyone can tell that Shelton loves Stefani’s children as his own, and he gets along wonderfully with all the three of them.

While Shelton has succeeded in building a good relationship with them, Stefani is reportedly having a hard time dealing with Rossdale’s co-parenting issues. Rossdale’s co-parenting drama could be affecting Shelton’s relationship with Stefani as Rossdale doesn't like watching his boys grow closer and more attached to Shelton than him. 

If indeed Gavin Rossdale’s co-parenting issue is getting in the way of Shelton and Stefani’s relationship, then experts believe that Shelton and Stefani need some outside help. According to divorce transition specialist Paige Harley, the celebrity couple should consider hiring a parent coordinator if they want to keep tensions down.

“Gwen and Gavin should hire a parent coordinator!” Harley said. “If you have the funds these can be a great asset to any co-parenting family. A coordinator cannot change a parenting plan but he or she can work within the confines,” she added. She also said that a coordinator will help Stefani and Rossdale become more reasonable with their decisions, which is great for them and their children.

Meanwhile, Stefani and Shelton reportedly still need to contend with other issues before they could settle down. The couple needs to sort out their living arrangements as Shelton still has two homes in Oklahoma and Los Angeles, while Stefani is living in Los Angeles with her children. The couple reportedly wants to sort out their permanent living situation before getting married so they can provide stability for Stefani’s children.

Whether or not Shelton and Stefani’s relationship will survive amid Stefani’s co-parenting issues with Rossdale remains to be seen. Until the couple finally says a word about the status of their relationship, fans will have to take rumors about them with a grain of salt.
