If…and when…Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani get hitched, reports say Gwen is ready to take Blake’s last name!  A source tells HollywoodLife.com; “Gwen is convinced that Blake is the one she will be with for the rest of her life. She has no question that those feelings will ever change. And she is committed to him in such a way and respects his old fashion values that if and when they get married, she would gladly become “Gwen Shelton” in a heartbeat.
