'The Voice'Judge Blake Shelton Teases Wedding Date with His Fiancée Gwen Stefani
Country singer Blake Shelton made a surprise appearance on the "Today" show on Wednesday and teased his and Gwen Stefani's wedding date.
Since Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani announced their engagement on social media on October 27, many fans have been itching to know about their wedding plans.
Shelton surprised "Today" show co-anchor Hoda Kotb on Wednesday with a video call appearance. During his chat with her, he teased when he and Stefani will hopefully get married.
Kotb and Shelton talked about when each of them would be tying the knot with their respective spouses. Kotb's wedding with her fiancé Joel Schiffman has been postponed since last November because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The television personality and Schiffman are still weighing the possibility of holding their wedding this summer or in November. However, Shelton is hoping he and Stefani do not have to wait that long. He said:
"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..."
He further thinks they are at the point with COVID-19, where it looks like it may be okay but remains unsure, adding that the tentative plan was for the wedding to hold in the summer.
When Hoda asked Shelton which of them would get married first, "The Voice" coach said he and Stefani would get married before Hoda and Schiffman do.
She said she did not have an idea that he would propose before adding that it was a pretty magical moment.
Hoda and Shelton also discussed which musicians might perform at his wedding. That topic has been one of speculation, with many artists, including Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and Miley Cyrus volunteering to sing at Shelton's wedding.
Responding to those speculations, Shelton said it was suddenly starting to sound like a Coachella lineup before adding that he was unsure who would perform. He said:
"I'd love to be able to take everybody up on their offer and have this amazing concert wedding, but you know how it is."
Last December, Stefani appeared on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" and spilled the beans on how Shelton proposed to her, revealing he got down on his knees while they were in Oklahoma for an intimate get-together to celebrate her 51st birthday.
She said she did not have an idea that he would propose before adding that it was a pretty magical moment and turned into a real family affair.
A source revealed that Shelton solicited the help of Stefani's three sons, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6, who she shares with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, for the proposal.
Stefani also recalled the proposal during an appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon" in January. The singer admitted that even though she was surprised by his proposal, she was already wondering if he was ever going to propose.
