Gwen Stefani gave fans an update on her and Blake Shelton’s wedding plans on Monday (Dec. 7).
In a recent interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest, the superstar gushed over her and Shelton’s engagement as well as talked planning their wedding during a global pandemic and how they want to wait until after the pandemic ends to wed.
“It’s so funny to even say engaged. It feels so weird. People have been saying it for so long, like five years, ‘Are you getting married? Are you engaged?’ And now we actually are and it feels like I’m in a cartoon or something,” Stefani said.
The “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” singer explained that she prefer to have their wedding when the pandemic is over, so that they can have the wedding that they both want, surrounded by their family and friends.
“I would say I just want my parents there at this point. Like, my parents wouldn’t come to Thanksgiving because they’re so scared, so really would rather it not be a COVID situation. Like, I would rather not have masks and that kind of thing,” Stefani explained. “Even when you cut it down to just family, it’s too many people for COVID so we’re sort of, like, gonna see what happens in the next few months….”
Stefani and Shelton first met as coaches on The Voice in 2014, following both of their breakups. The superstar couple began dating in November 2015, just a year after working together as judges on The Voice. The couple confirmed their engagement on October 27. In June 2020, Us Weekly reported that Stefani wants to marry Shelton when the coronavirus pandemic is over.
Stefani recently released her new single “Let Me Reintroduce Myself,” which she also got to live debut on The Voice while her country superstar finance Shelton watched from his red coaches chair.
