It feels like ever since Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got together back in 2015, any mention of their names is usually followed with a rumor that she’s mere moments from line-dancing down the aisle of a decorated barn to a ska version of Here Comes the Bride. That, or someone is screaming that she’ll soon be delivering Cracker Barrel’s newest customer. But Blake has said that marrying isn’t something he’s rushing into.
People says that Blake was recently asked by CMT’s Cody Alan about whether or not he and Gwen were going to get married. Blake kept it kind of vague with his answer:
“I think about it. I don’t think it’s anytime soon or anything. The more time that goes by, I guess, the closer you’d be getting to that.”
It also sounds like Gwen is on the same page as Blake, which is that marriage is something they want, they just don’t know when. Gwen was on Ellen last week to reveal some “big news.” The news was not that Gwen would be getting married to People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2017 (it was that Gwen would soon behave her own residency in Las Vegas). When Ellen DeGeneres tried to confirm any rumors that they’d be getting married soon, Gwen played coy and tried to change the subject, asking how Ellen feels about marriage instead. When pressed by Ellen if she ever thinks about marriage, she answered:
“I do. I think about it all the time.”
Maybe they’re just trying to throw everyone off the scent of their super-private wedding. What am I saying? It’s Blake and Gwen; she would sooner let her roots grow in than keep quiet about Blake. The truth is that through all the marriage teasing, they’re probably not actually getting married in the near future. Looks like I’ve got to throw out the wedding gift I made for them. A sculpture of Blake and Gwen sharing one Voice chair carved out of country smoked ham won’t last forever.
