After Overcoming Infidelity, Gwen Stefani Found Love With Blake Shelton At The Age Of 50

She was ruined by her first husband…a sab

Society has a long history of prescribing how and when women should approach love.

Each time they wake up, they’re reminded of their biological clock. Women are made to feel worthless if they are not romantically associated with a man. In society, women are advised on the type of husband, lifestyle, and career they should pursue. Damn, it’s brutal out here, as they say.

Even so, despite all the collective agonies and resentments, a few women defy the judgment with their strength. Gwen Stefani would certainly qualify. In recent years, she has cemented her legacy as one of the boldest, coolest women in pop culture by pursuing love at 50.

On July 3, 2021, No Doubt’s frontwoman marries country singer Blake Shelton. In her midlife milestone, we can learn the following:

After finding out about her husband’s infidelity, Gwen thought her “dreams were shattered”

Gwen Stefani met Gavin Rossdale in 1995 during a holiday concert for radio station KROQ with No Doubt and Bush. The couple married in 2002 at St. Paul’s Church, London, and welcomed three children: Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo. It had been a happy marriage, but it turned sour on Gavin’s end.

It was 2015 when Gavin’s infidelities became public, including a three-year affair with the family nanny. Gavin allegedly had sex with his nanny after Apollo was born in 2014, whereas other papers claim he used to bring Mindy along on tour while his kids dazed off next to her while she had sex. There’s no way to prove the truth behind every sordid report, but there’s reliable proof Gavin cheated on his wife of thirteen years.

The marriage ended when Gavin’s affair with the nanny was confirmed – a classic Hollywood scandal. For Gwen, the whole thing was a nasty, tacky embarrassment; she shielded for cover as the mainstream media picked apart her husband and put every aspect of her life under the microscope.

Gwen told a heartbreaking story about her ordeal in an interview with Glamour. Hell was just getting started. She said she would have told everyone, but she had to keep her mouth shut for the sake of her kids. During her rapidly imploding marriage, the singer went back to work and quietly dealt with it.

It’s the most harrowing moment that shows your true strength. She did what she always does in tough situations: she prayed. She couldn’t let Gavin’s disgusting behavior consume her; she had to look out for her boys and stand up for herself.

Cheating is, unfortunately, one of the most mundane things in life. If you’ve made it this far without encountering it in any form – as the aggressor or the victim – you’re one of the lucky ones. It might seem like a simple thing, but it has lasting effects on the people involved. If you’re a victim, it can wreak havoc on your self-esteem and confidence.

sometimes you get disillusioned about love, and you’ll find that it’s hard to put your faith in anyone and really rely on them to fulfill you in any way, shape, or form. Gwen’s not just brave for bearing the torture under the spotlight; she opened her heart to someone new in a matter of months. It worked out great.

The beginning of Gwen and Blake’s relationship was fraught with trust issues
Gwen and Blake met on The Voice in November 2015. A close, co-working partnership ended up blossoming into a love story that changed both of their lives. Interestingly, both Gwen and Blake were going through the same thing at the same time, so they were able to connect over their heartaches without beating around the bush.

In her story, Gwen describes how they both struggled with trust issues in the first few weeks, but they were able to get over them with empathy and communication. It was a “miracle” to find love so soon after “months and months of torture.”

Besides, dating in your late forties and fifties carries an unattractive stigma, as if women of a certain age are suddenly unattractive and thus unworthy of love. We either get the impression that they’re malicious cougars looking to relive their youth or sad, lonely women who just can’t seem to get any luck. Gwen and Blake’s relationship is proof that love doesn’t expire and it doesn’t matter how many bad breaks you’ve been through, as long as you’re in a position to find happiness. We shouldn’t be concerned about whether older women are desirable – they are, as long as they feel like it.

Love accepts everything

Pay no attention to what other people say – love doesn’t care about your age, your background, your job, your status, or anything else. People who have experienced love at its fullest understand you can find and keep love at any age. Just let it consume you on its own terms, and your heart will follow. In fact, our life experiences make us more capable of accepting and savoring love as we age.

Considering Gwen overcome her traumas at 50 to build a future with Blake, you have nothing to stop you from finding your true love. Society is made of manufactured pressures, but love isn’t.

I’m getting filler in my lips for £1,000 from my sugar daddy

She claims she is more confident than ever 👄

Having had over £1000 worth of filler injected into her lips, a 22-year-old says she is more confident than ever, thanks to her sugar daddy.

According to Dailymail, The woman, whose sugar daddy often foots the bill, says she has never felt more confident after spending more than £1,000.

Chanel Challacombe, 22, from Kent, began having lip filler at 20 – and was hooked after one injection. A psychology student gets her lips topped up around three times a year with 2ml injected into her face.

Her appointment for filler would cost up to £299, which is nearly as much as some people have to pay for rent. However, she doesn’t worry too much about the price tag since her sugar daddy usually pays for it. She said this treatment has helped Chanel regain some self-confidence that she lost while being bullied at school.

While she gets a lot of naysayers on social media, her huge lips don’t bother her anymore. ‘I get hate on TikTok and my family don’t like it either,’ she explained.

She said she used to respond to negative comments on TikTok, but the platform always suspended her.

Instead, she lets criticism wash over her and uses it as motivation to have more filler.

I think I started to get filler as a coping mechanism. My boyfriend wasn’t a big fan of it, and we broke up when I started getting more. There has been talking of a new law that might only allow people to have filler if they have prescriptions. Chanel said she disagreed with the proposal.

Even though she is concerned about the mental health of young women who believe they need filler, the 22-year-old believes restricting the procedure will encourage more people to turn to the “black market” for the procedure.

Chanel continues to have cosmetic procedures topped up and planning for a bo0b job in Turkey. She said: ‘I was forced to go abroad for this as my GP wouldn’t write me the letter to get it done in the UK.’

NHS Doctors Delay Switching off Archie Battersbee’s Life Support After Family’s Last-Minute Plead to European Convention

Archie Battersbee’s Mother Says She’ll Fight To Move Son To Hospice As She Admits It’s ‘The End’.

The family of comatose boy Archie Battersbee has managed to delay the decision of doctors to turn his life support off.

The 12-year-old British boy was found unconscious in his house in April. His mother said she believes her son was doing some sort of online challenge that went horribly wrong.

Since then, he has been under treatment and is currently on life support in the Barts Health NHS Trust.

According to BBC, doctors at Royal London Hospital argued that the child is ‘brain stem dead’ and it is in his best interest to end his suffering and stop his treatment.

The Supreme Court ruling came earlier this week when the judge ruled that Archie’s misery should end now, and doctors could stop his treatment and switch off his life support.

However, as per Daily Mail, Archie’s lawyers argued this was unlawful.

“Stopping his treatment would be in breach of the UK’s obligations under Articles 10 and 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities – the right to life and equal recognition before the law – and Article 6 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Children – that every child has the inherent right to life.”

Archie’s mother, Hollie Dance, condemned the court’s decision and called it ‘brutal’ and stated that she would fight for his son’s life till the very last minute and wouldn’t allow anyone to decide otherwise.

Hollie and her family have also made an emergency request application to the European Convention on Human Rights. Barts NHS Trust has confirmed that they will not take any immediate step until the judgment comes back.

A spokesman for the trust said, “We will make no changes to Archie’s care until the outstanding legal issues are resolved.”

Speaking to the outlet, Hollie Dance said,

“We are very relieved, we are having to battle every decision with the hospital. We now hope and pray that the ECHR will look favourably on the application. We will not give up on Archie until the end.”

She further added that her family has received offers from other countries who want to treat their Archie.

“We have been approached by doctors from Japan, Turkey, and Italy. They all claim that they can treat Archie. I’m now considering options to move him outside the UK.”

“Yesterday was a very down day for me. People that know me know I won’t stay down for long, especially when it comes to fighting for my son’s life.”

“I promised Arch, same with his dad, that we will fight ’til the bitter end, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

“It really is a case of me and Archie, and obviously Archie’s family, up against the whole system. We’re going to fight for the right for my son to live.”

According to Daily Mail, if their European application fails, Archie’s family might have no other option left but to say goodbye to him.

Chrissy Teigen announces she’s expecting her fourth baby almost two years after the stillbirth of son Jack

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen announced they are expecting a baby almost two years after the passing of their son Jack.

Today, she announced the news on Instagram, writing that “the last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again”.

“1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way,” Teigen wrote, alongside two photos of her bump.

  • “Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still.
  • “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing. Ok phew it’s been very hard keeping this in for so long!”

Her 36-year-old partner – who shares two children with Legend – announced in October 2020 that she had miscarried, sharing her only child Luna, six, and son Miles, four.

She had previously revealed she had suffered constant bleeding during her pregnancy. Teigen was around halfway through her pregnancy at the time.

  • “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she wrote.
  • “We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.”

She continued:

  • “We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.
  • “To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you.”

Teigen added the couple “are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine.”

“On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it,” she wrote.

They also have a 4-year-old son and a 6-year-old daughter. She noted in February that she was undergoing in vitro fertilization, which she also had during her pregnancies of Miles and Luna.

Mom Revealed that she was Torn Apart When Nobody Congratulated Her When Her Baby Girl was Born

Eliza and her husband Erik were expecting their baby Bella’s birth with enthusiasm. However, doctors and nurses didn’t congratulate the parents when she finally arrived in 2018 because she “looked different.” The newborn’s mother’s heart was shattered.

In 2018 Eliza Jamkochian Bahneman and her husband Erik received the good news that they would become parents.

“‘We’re pregnant!’ These are the words everyone likes to hear when planning for a family. It took my husband and me about nine months to get pregnant. I was starting to feel anxious and nervous. It’s crazy how many emotions one can feel when planning to have children.” Said Eliza.

Love What Matters reported that Eliza shared her pregnancy journey with her sister-in-law and a few friends. They were all expecting and were due one after the other.

“It was amazing to have someone you can share your pregnancy pros and cons with.”

However, things took a turn, and her daughter Isabella was born a month earlier than her due date.

“After 12 hours of labor, Bella entered our world. She arrived sunny side up, weighing five and a half pounds. Upon her arrival, I noticed a tiny folded ear. I was told babies look weird as soon as they come out, so I didn’t think anything of it.”

Eliza said that Bella was so tiny and delicate, and she was excited to meet her baby girl. But when she held her for the first time, she realized something was wrong.

“’Why isn’t anyone congratulating me? Why is my husband so confused and scared? Why can’t my mom look at me? Why did my doctor step out? Why are all these other people coming into my room?’ My room was silent. No one said a word. The silence tore me apart; it broke me, shattered my heart.”

“I broke down, shaking, scared, confused, and lost. Writing this moment breaks me. With a heavy heart, I revisit these memories and remember my daughter’s arrival was not celebrated.” She told LWM.

Doctors examined the baby and ran several tests. After multiple evaluations, they concluded that Bella had a genetic disorder, Treacher Collins.

“‘Honey, I think I diagnosed our daughter,’ my husband said, ‘Well, there are two syndromes. However, one is worse than the other. Let’s hope it’s Treacher Collins.’ We read the article together, looked at pictures, researched, and cried.” Said Bahneman.

“It was a condition in which her facial bones wouldn’t develop properly, like normal people. Our daughter was born with many issues, such as loss of hearing and a small airway.”

“So began the chapter of our lives that involved several surgeries and rushing to the hospital due to emergencies.”

“We had a special protocol to follow each time going in and out of the NICU. Several specialists and neonatologists greeted us.”

“Bella had to be assessed further with x-rays, exams, and evaluations. We had to leave Bella in the evenings at the hospital. It was hard to manage motherhood, a new baby, a rare syndrome, pumping, and the daily information provided.”

Eliza said she would wake up in the middle of the night and log into the NICU cameras to watch Bella.

“I connected with my daughter through media. That was my normal.”

“On December 8, 2018, after we were medically and properly trained to care for Bella, we were discharged to go home. My husband and I were not only her parents but also her nurse.”

“We have had many whirlwinds, including several emergency visits to the ER and choking situations while at home.”

Eliza told the outlet that she and Erik had come a long way and were extremely thankful for their training in the NICU for caring for her baby girl.

Currently, Bella is two and a half years old and is growing strong even after undergoing three major inpatient surgeries and one outpatient surgery.

“Most TCS babies have an average of 20 to 60 surgeries, if not more. Some have trachs to help them breathe, but almost all of them have some sort of hearing loss. Bella goes to occupational therapy, speech therapy, a music class for children with hearing loss, and early start with the school district.”

“Our journey is different, our normal is different, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. This entire experience has taught me so much as a mother, sister, wife, friend, and acquaintance.” Said Eliza.

Obese Woman Refuses To Give Up Extra Seat She Purchased On Plane So Couple Can Sit Together

If they wanted to sit together so badly, perhaps they should have thought ahead.

The Reddit community recently supported an obese woman harassed by a couple after she wouldn’t give up the extra airplane seat she purchased.

Tessy23, a Redditor who is obese, often purchases two airplane seats for herself while flying alone. What’s the reason? She does not want to impress or bother other passengers to enjoy her flight. Her hopes were dashed recently when she encountered the situation she had hoped to avoid.

Obese Woman Refuses To Give Up Extra Seat She Purchased On Plane So Couple  Can Sit Together

A viral post on Reddit by Tessy23 explained she purchased an extra seat next to her own to ensure comfort during the flight. Redditors exchanged thoughts with the original poster.

Story:

“AITA for not giving up my second “free” seat next to me in the plane?”

I am obese. Like I am comfortable having two seats in the plane type of obese. I am well aware of that and I really don’t like to bother people with my weight.

A week ago I was going to a conference by plane and because I was going alone (usually when I fly with my boyfriend I don’t buy two since he sits next to me) I bought two seats. I fit in one but my side is usually touching the person next to me and I feel uncomfortable for them. It happened to me that they gave me nasty looks and I felt extremely uncomfortable the whole flight.

So I sat down in the plane and put the armrest up so I would be really comfortable. Some couple came and they both sat next to me because they got separate seats and they noticed the seat next to me was empty. Exactly what I was afraid of happened. My side kept touching the guy next to me and he even pushed me a bit when he moved in the seat. I was feeling extremely uncomfortable and asked him if he could go to his seat because I bought this one for my comfort. He told me no, since the seat is empty and he wants to be with his girlfriend. Well, I told him I understand but I feel uncomfortable and I paid for the second seat so exactly this doesn’t happen. He refused again and started to chat with his GF. I called the flight attendant and quietly told her what is happening. She asked the guy to leave my second seat and he and his GF gave me a nasty look. The GF mumbled something like “Fu***g fat bi**h” under her breath but nothing directly to me.

So Am I the a$$hole for insisting on him to leave?

The Responses:

The post received more than 3400 responses; we have collected some of the most interesting ones below:

  • flaky-burnt: NTA! You bought that seat. The couple sitting apart has nothing to do with you. IDGAF if you were thin and bought a 2nd seat for your emotional support ghost! That’s your seat.
  • 31anon5: NTA. They tried to take something you paid for and then were rude to you. It’s a bit shocking, really, considering the number of people who comment on social media that larger people should have to buy two seats. Please don’t feel bad about yourself because they chose to be horrid and entitled.
  • F0zzysW0rld: NTA – It wasnt a free/available seat. You purchased it, you bought the seat so it is “occupied”.
  • DishsUp: NTA: you paid for that seat, it’s your seat and frankly airplane seats are too small. I was on a flight last week, I bought it last minute and ended up with a center seat in the “basic” cabin, the cheap seats on United flights ( at least on this plane ) don’t have movable arm rests, my hips hit both armrests( read walls), it was very uncomfortable. I wear a women’s 10/12, after that experience I will always buy 2 seats if I’m in the back or at least never settle for less than business class.
  • Aylauria: NTA. You were the opposite of the AH. You paid extra for the comfort of yourself and the person next to you. They were both AH. They could have accomplished the same goal by have her swap her seat with the person sitting next to him. But they didn’t want to. Not your problem. Give it no more thought.
  • jaelythe4781: NTA. You PAID for two seats. They were being entitled AHs for not even asking permission.
  • For you for the future, there is NOTHING wrong with informing people who try to sit in your PAID FOR 2nd seat that it IS your seat even if it’s currently empty and they need to sit in their assigned seats or ask someone else to switch. Or they could PAY for assigned seats next to each other in the future. If you don’t pay for seat assignment, you don’t get to complain about not sitting next to each other or bully someone else for their seat.
  • BaffledMum: NTA. For heaven’s sake, if he’d been assigned to sit next to you, he’d have complained you were too big. But if you get an extra seat so as not to bother him, he feels entitled to your seat. Why didn’t the girlfriend ask boyfriend’s seat neighbor to switch? No muss, no fuss.
  • ThePeoplesPoom: Firstly, I’m sorry people have given you nasty looks and treated you poorly. No one should be shaming you for your body. Second, you are DEFINITELY NTA. You already paid for your extra seat (already very courteous) and you were respectful and discrete in having him removed.
  • FangirlSuelo: NTA, I know the feeling because my mom was overweight my whole life and she’d tell me the stories of her flying solo and even with me she’d have me sit in the seat next to her. But I’ve seen the stares and dirty looks too, I’ve been getting the looks lately too if I’m flying alone and even a little of me spills to the side. They need to either plan better, or ask in the first place if they could sit there. When you said you were uncomfortable and then they blew you off, then you did the best thing getting the flight attendant. You’re not at all in the wrong here for standing up for yourself.

Woman Says She’s Been Devastated Because Her 12th Prospective Husband Broke up with Her

“She can’t stop getting married and looking for the right person.”

Monette Dias, a 52-year-old woman from The US, said that she wants to have a fairytale love life, and in search of that, she can’t stop getting married and looking for the right person.

According to The Sun , Dias is an interior designer who has married nine men so far; however, she claimed that she hasn’t found her perfect match yet.

“It’s really painful for me to have another failure, especially in this relationship where I tried so hard.”

The single mom told her sister about her recent argument with her fiancé John, and said,

“Sometimes I think he gets as mean as he can to me because he wants me gone.”

In the video, Dias could be seen arguing with her fiancé John, “I have done everything that I can think of, to do for you, to try to make you happy, and it’s never been enough.” she said while crying.

Then her fiancé replied, “That’s what you think, and I think it’s obviously not working. We are not getting anywhere.’

Her sister, Marcie, told TLC UK that Dias was hurt when she opened up about her recent encounter with John, which really hurt her.

“She was in tears, and that makes me hurt. It makes me so sad to see her so upset.”

Marcie also admitted that she was pretty much okay with her sister’s decision to get married twice or thrice. However, when Dias never stopped her quest of finding the right man, she got really upset.

So, after Dias told her about her 12th break-up, Marcie advised her to talk to him and try to solve their issues. But Dias said she had already tried everything, but John didn’t seem to get along with her anymore.

Yet she took her advice and decided to talk to John for one last time. But when she encountered him, things didn’t go as planned.

“Until you come to terms with what you do and your role in your failed relationships, you’ll never have a good one,” John told Monette.

The couple kept on fighting about how they wanted their relationship to move forward but didn’t agree on anything. So, Dias left and went to see her grandkids.

Marcie also told the outlet that Monette and John are currently taking a break from their relationship, but she hopes they figure things out and patch up soon.

“I really want my sister to be happy. I love her so much. I just wish she finds what she has been looking for throughout these years.”

Speaking with TLC, Monette’s fiancé, John, said that he thinks his relationship with Dias has been ruined forever because of their differences. He also said that he is not blaming Dias alone for wrecking their relationship; he is equally responsible.

“I know I am a jerk, and I don’t bend. I don’t change for anybody. But I am who I am.” He said.

“I love her and will miss her, but we won’t miss our fights. How we even got together amazes me sometimes.” John added.

When Monette was asked if she was done with John, she replied,

“I’m done. I am definitely done. I will never let myself sit through what just happened between me and him again. Although it’s very sad what happened, I think leaving is the right thing I can do right now. So, I am going to stay over with my grandkids for a while.”

“It’s really painful to have another failure, especially in this relationship where I tried so hard and gave so much, but they say that the one that loves the most and gives the most is the one that hurts the most.”

Monette concluded her interview with TLC by saying that she is still hopeful about finding the right man for herself and will never give up.

British Man Says His Family Wants Him to stop sending £400 a Month to His Fiancée Who’s Already Married

British Man Says His Family Wants Him to stop sending £400 a Month to His Fiancée Who’s Already Married:

An English man named Shaun has been asked by his family to stop sending hundreds of pounds to his fiancée, who lives in the Philippines.

41-year-old Shaun lives in Hampshire, UK has been in a romantic relationship with a woman named Christine, who lives almost 7000 miles away in Antipolo City, Philippines.

The couple started dating nearly eight years ago after interacting on the internet, and since then, they have been getting along quite well.

Although Christine lives thousands of miles away, Shaun says he is ‘head over heels’ in love with her.

The couple shares one son named Christian. Christine also had three other children from her previous relationship.

According to Shaun, he and Christine have plans to get married very soon, and he is very excited about his marriage.

He also said that in order to help her with all her expenses and kids’ responsibilities, Shaun sends her £400 monthly.

“From all these eight years I’ve been with Christine, I wouldn’t know how much money I would have sent her.”

“But all I know is it’s in the hundreds of thousands. It’s worth every penny.”

“After I’ve sent Christine the money, there’s enough for me to pay my bills at least, and then when I look again, I’ve got about £50-£60 for myself, and that’s more than enough to see me through the month.”

He said that Christine is still married, and due to her financial situation, she hasn’t been able to get a divorce yet, so he had been sending her money every month so she could complete the legal process and get an official divorce from the court.

“I don’t have the money, but I am going to be saving up for it, and then we can get married.”

“Yes, they’re still married, but they don’t live with each other. I don’t feel jealous about it, because I know she loves me, and I love her.”

According to the Unilad, Shaun’s family and friends are not very pleased with his long-distance relationship with Christine and advised him to reconsider his decision several times.

However, Shaun said that he loves Christine and doesn’t really care what other people think about their relationship.

“When I started sending her money, my parents and all my friends started saying, ‘Why are you sending her money?’”

“But, to be honest with you, I don’t really care, I’m following my heart. It’s my choice. So, you either be part of me in the circle, or you’re not.”

He said that he has even told her parents to stop meddling with his affairs.

“Well, one it’s got nothing to do with you, and two, mind your own business.”

“What the heart wants, the heart gets. Alright? I chose this path for me.”

Speaking about their relationship, Christine said,

“Shaun and I are hoping for the best future for Christian – not just for Christian, but also for my other children.”

“I love him and I like him because he embraced my imperfections. He loves me in a package, together with my children and my exes!”
