Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will reportedly wed in a chapel that he built on the grounds of their Oklahoma ranch.

The happy couple announced in October they are set to get married after five years together, and sources have now said that 44-year-old Blake has had a chapel constructed on his ranch, which is likely to be the venue for their wedding.

“Blake built a chapel on the grounds of his Oklahoma ranch. He did it himself with help. It’s really a tribute to their love,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly magazine. “They are going to get married in the chapel, most likely early next year.”

The news comes after it was reported Gwen, 51, is “ecstatic” about her engagement.

Sources had previously revealed the God’s Country star had involved Gwen’s three sons – Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, six, who she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale – in his proposal plans.

Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks still have antibodies nine months after they contracted COVID-19.

The Hollywood couple was diagnosed with the disease while in Australia in March, and have subsequently offered to help with studies to find a vaccine, and they are still protected months later.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week at the studio for a socially-distanced chat, host Jimmy told Rita: “I feel like you’re the only person I don’t have to worry about because you must be brimming with antibodies right now.”

To which she replied: “I still have antibodies!”

As part of the UCLA program they are a part of, Rita and husband Tom, both 64, get tested for coronavirus “every couple of months.”

She added: “They test us and so far we still have them. They diminish as you get farther away from your infection, but they’re still there helping us out.”

The pair have also been donating plasma to aid research for a vaccine.

Forrest Gump star Tom previously admitted the illness left him feeling exhausted, and revealed that his wife had a high fever and lost her sense of taste.

“We had very different symptoms,” he said. She had a higher fever than I did. She had horrible nausea…

“We were eating takeout food that I thought was delicious. It was savory goodness. It had butter sauces. It had come from a thing, highly recommended joint. And she was saying, ‘This tastes like oatmeal to me.’ I thought she was insane.

“I had bones that felt like they were made out of soda crackers and bone-crushing fatigue.”

A man who claimed to be William Shatner’s long-lost son has discovered the Star Trek legend isn’t his dad after all.

Peter Sloan, who legally changed his surname to Shatner last year, had claimed the actor had fathered him with late Canadian actress Kathy McNeil after a one-night-stand in 1956.

Shatner has always denied the allegation, and steadfastly refused a DNA test – despite Sloan hitting him with a $170 million lawsuit in a bid to force him to take a test.

However, after uploading his own DNA to genealogy site Ancestry.com, Sloan discovered the identity of his dad was actually a Canadian man named Benjamin ‘Chick’ Freedman, who died in 2001.

According to a report in the Tampa Bay Times newspaper, the discovery was made after Chick’s daughter agreed to a DNA test in October, with the results showing that she and Sloan were half-siblings.

Sloan told the publication, while he’s relieved to have finally discovered who his dad was, he’s upset that it’s too late for them to have forged a bond.

“I will never have the opportunity to sit and talk to him,” Peter said. “I just wanted to know where I came from. I found what I was looking for. It took time and it was a fight, but I did it. I finally know where I come from.”

He’s now planning to revert his surname, most probably back to Sloan.

Shatner has adult daughters from his first marriage to Gloria Rand. They divorced in 1969, and he has since been married to Marcy Lafferty, from 1973 to 1996, and Nerine Kidd Shatner, from 1997 until her death in 1999.

He tied the knot with current wife Elizabeth Anderson Martin in 2001.

Miley Cyrus has opened up about her failed marriage to Liam Hemsworth, revealing she will always love the actor.

The couple tied the knot at Christmas, 2018 but the marriage was doomed from the start and Miley and her man split the following summer.

Now the Wrecking Ball singer claims she should never have agreed to get married so soon after the couple’s Malibu, California home was destroyed by local wildfires.

“Me being an intense person and not wanting to sit with it and not wanting to go, you know, ‘What could be purposeful about this?’ I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him,” she told satellite radio host Howard Stern. “And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will.”

And she suggests the pair was always at odds as husband and wife, adding, “There was too much conflict… When I come home, I want to be anchored by someone. I don’t get off on drama or fighting.”

Former Pretty Ricky singer Spectacular Blue Smith was arrested on Monday after allegedly assaulting a Walt Disney World employee.

According to an arrest affidavit from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, obtained by People, Smith was at the resort’s Animal Kingdom theme park when he walked past the employee in question, sneezed and said that it was “coronavirus.”

When the employee allegedly told Smith his joke wasn’t funny, he replied: “I thought it was.”

The employee responded: “Then you’ll think it’s hilarious if I asked you to step out of the line.”

Smith refused to leave the line, and an argument ensued, before the employee put his arm out in a bid to stop the 34-year-old from proceeding in the line.

At that point, Smith then “turned and punched him on his right side jaw and right temple area.”

The employee told police he stumbled and fell and stated he “was in shock and thought he might’ve lost consciousness.” Witnesses told police that they saw Smith punch the employee, but Smith’s son is said to have told officers that his dad accidentally hit the worker as he lost his balance.

After having a CT scan at Horizon West Hospital following the incident, the employee was diagnosed with a concussion.

Smith was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor battery with his bond set at $500.

The former rapper, turned social media entrepreneur, is most famous for being part of the Miami R&B group Pretty Ricky – best known for their songs Your Body and Grind with Me.

Tiger King star Joe Exotic is “very close” to landing a presidential pardon from Donald Trump, which will set him free from jail, according to the reality TV star’s lawyer.

Trump’s aides have confirmed that a number of pardon requests, including Joe Exotic’s, are currently under consideration, and the star’s attorney, Eric Love, fully expects his client to walk free.

“We are waiting on the pen to hit the paper, we think we are very, very close,” Love tells ABC News.

Exotic, real name Joseph Maldano-Passage, is currently serving a 22-year sentence for a number of offenses, including a murder-for-hire plot against his big cat sanctuary rival Carole Baskin.

He recently posted a note on Instagram from behind bars insisting his stint in prison has made him a better man, stating: “If President Trump grants me this miracle, I can honestly say I am putting everyone connected to that zoo and that industry behind me.

“I am taking the higher road and will work on forgiving them. They’ve got a much bigger Man and karma to deal with one day than me and God knows everything.

“I will spend every minute of my life making this up to my husband, using my platform to help sick children around the world, the homeless and fighting for change in this justice system.”

Justin Bieber and wife Hailey are waiting to start their family as the model has “some things she wants to accomplish as a woman” before getting pregnant.

The 26-year-old singer appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Tuesday, with host Ellen quick to question him about when he and Hailey were planning to have babies.

“I think Hailey still has some things she wants to accomplish as a woman and I think she is just not ready yet. And I think that’s OK,” he says.

But the Sorry star added that when it comes to his plans for the future, he’s happy to have as many children as his 24-year-old wife would like.

“I’m going to have as many as Hailey is wishing to push out,” he added. “I’d love to have myself a little tribe. But, it’s her body and whatever she wants to do – I think she wants to have a few. At least two or three.”

Justin also told Ellen he’s left some space on his back so that he can add his children’s names to his tattoo collection once he’s a father.
