OFFSTAGE: It’d Sure Be Cool If Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton Had a Baby

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

“We’re not trying to make it happen or avoid it.” That was Blake Shelton ’s response when E! News asked if he and wife Miranda Lambert are planning on having a baby anytime soon. Sounds promising, doesn’t it? And wouldn’t that be the perfect way to keep those divorce rumors at bay? “I think that’s just kind of how we live our life,” he said of the possibility of parenthood. “You know, if it happens one day, then it happens,” he said, adding, “I mean, gosh dang it, we’re married. Sooner or later, we’re going to run into each other in the hallway and something’s going to be created, I’m sure. But we don’t have any plans on it.”
