Blake Shelton surprised Hoda Kotb on The Today Show yesterday (3/31) via video chat and he revealed that he and Gwen Stefani are hoping to get married this summer.
Blake told Hoda of their impending nuptials, “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, so hopefully this summer. I think we’re right here at the point with COVID, it looks like it may be OK, but don’t know, so that’s tentatively the plan.”
The musical entertainment at Shelton and Stefani’s wedding has also been a topic of speculation, with everyone from Maroon 5 singer and former Voice coach Adam Levine to Miley Cyrus volunteering their services.
Shelton joked, “It’s starting to sound like a Coachella lineup here all of a sudden. I got all these superstars saying they’re gonna do it. I hope so, I don’t know. I’m not saying this because it’s the line. We really don’t know.”
He added, “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. We’re just waiting every day just like everybody else to see what our summer’s gonna look like and then go from there.”
Blake also told Hoda that he and his bride-to-be are ready to slow down a bit. He said, “We’ve both pretty much taken it to the limit as far as our careers go and touring and now the television thing. It’s been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things, hopefully at some point we’ll get a chance to live some life. And I think we’re both ready for that, honestly.”
