Fans react to Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s new kittens

Stefani’s cat may have given birth to six adorable kittens, but their dog Betty didn’t seem too thrilled about it. In the clip, Betty looked less than enthusiastic about the new additions. 

Stefani and Shelton currently share a ranch in Oklahoma, so they certainly have plenty of room for the kittens and Betty. 

Luckily, Stefani’s fans had a much different reaction to the super cute video. In fact, most of her followers were quick to show their love and congratulate the couple on their new litter.

“Gwen and Blake are Grandparents,” one person commented.

Other followers were curious to discover how Shelton reacted to the news. One person even suggested that they should name one of the kittens after the country crooner, especially if he wasn’t on board. 

Although most fans loved the video, there were some naysayers who spoke out against Stefani.
