Why Blake Shelton Wants to Marry Gwen Stefani Before the Next Season of ‘The Voice’
It took a while for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani to get engaged. Now they’re waiting to get married because of the COVID-9 pandemic. Shelton revealed they might get married before the next season of The Voice for an interesting reason.
Gwen Stefani talked about waiting to get married to Blake Shelton
The couple announced they were engaged in October 2020. There was then the question of when they’ll get married, but Stefani revealed they’re waiting.
“I would say I just want my parents there at this point,” she told Ryan Seacrest. “My parents wouldn’t come to Thanksgiving because they were so scared (about the COVID-19 pandemic), so really would rather it not be a COVID situation. I would rather not have masks and that kind of thing.”
That really left a window open to when they’ll get married. But the couple has still had fun talking about wedding planning. Now it looks like their wedding could be happening soon!
Why Blake Shelton wants to marry Gwen Stefani soon
It’s been a mystery when the couple will actually tie the knot. But the country singer revealed on Today With Hoda & Jenna that it might happen this summer.
“I’m afraid if she and I wait until next November, then I’m right back into The Voice cycle again. And I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after,” he told Hoda Kotb. “With COVID-19, it looks like it may be OK, but I don’t know. So, that’s tentatively the plan. We’ll see.”
Shelton will be back as a coach for season 21 without Stefani. It was recently announced Ariana Grande is replacing Nick Jonas next season. Season 21 will most likely happen in the fall of 2021.
Will Adam Levine perform at their wedding?
Shelton revealed that he wants a former coach of The Voice to perform at his wedding. He joked Adam Levine owes him one.
“I’ve kind of decided that I’ve been doing this a long time now, and I’ve got a lot of favors out there,” Shelton said on Late Night With Seth Meyers. “He may not like it, but Adam Levine’s gonna have to get the band together and come and play our wedding.”
Levine was recently asked if he’ll perform. He had an interesting answer.“They haven’t asked me yet,” he told Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up. He did later say that he would love to but highly doubted they would ask him.
Levine said the couple would more likely ask Luke Bryan than him. Shelton did say in his interview with Kotb that he doesn’t know if anyone will perform at his wedding yet.
