Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are our favorite kind of #RelationshipGoals, and they’re only getting cuter as time goes by. People have been obsessed with their relationship since they began dating in late 2015, and now Shelton is giving us an important life update — if (and when!) he wants to get married.
While attending the 2018 ACM Awards Sunday night, Shelton told CMT’s Cody Alan, “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.” Can’t you just hear Shelton saying that with his trademark emphasis on soon?
But it’s clear Shelton has fallen hard and fast for boss lady Gwen Stefani (and why shouldn’t he? She’s a catch!) — he’s left a trail of comments over the years as proof.

Shelton and Stefani famously met almost three years ago on The Voice. During an interview with Billboard, Shelton admitted he started falling in love as his marriage to Miranda Lambert was falling apart. Unbeknownst to him, Stefani was also splitting from Gavin Rossdale — her husband of 20 years. The two found companionship in their heartbreak.
“It went from… checking in on each other once a week through email… to maybe three times a week, then every day, to ‘Hey, here’s my phone number if you ever want to text.’ Next thing I know, I wake up and she’s all I care about, and I’m wondering if she feels the same about me.”
She did, and the rest is history. Since then, the couple splits their time between his home in Oklahoma and hers in Los Angeles, and Shelton loves having a ready-made family with her three sons.
“At this point in my life, I kind of had put [having kids] as like, ‘Well, that wasn’t meant to be,’” he told People. “Then all of a sudden it happens one way or another and it’s like, ‘Wow, [I] missed out on a lot…’ And so having them around… I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s so much fun.”
A source even told Us Weekly that Shelton was feeling the baby fever, but they’ve decided to take off the pressure and see if it happens “naturally.” A Blake Shelton-Gwen Stefani baby? Yes, please!
Luckily, Shelton can rest easy because if he ever pops the question, it sounds like Stefani will say yes. During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres asked her if Stefani thinks about marriage, to which she responded, “I do. I think about it all the time.”
A ring can’t be too far away… but until then, we hope they keeping living and enjoying their real-life happy ending.
