Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are finally returning to The Voice tonight, and the No Doubt singer is clearing up some common misconceptions about the duo before we dive in. Chatting on Today about how excited she is for the new season, Stefani fielded a series of questions from Hoda Kotb on the rumor mill’s biggest question this summer: Did Gwen and Blake call off their long-awaited wedding?! Since starting their romance in 2015, the couple has fielded questions about engagement and marriage at every turn, but just when it seemed like wedding bells might be in the air, COVID-19 struck. And while Stefani and Shelton have been cozied up all quarantine as far as we can tell, whispers did intensify that all was not as it seemed in their relationship this fall. So: any truth to the rumors?
Kotb asked Stefani about the state of her relationship in the least shady way possible, informing the “Nobody But You” singer that when she Googled “Gwen and Blake” she got the following search results: “Gwen and Blake song. Gwen and Blake married. Gwen and Blake engaged. Gwen and Blake call off wedding.”

“So, what’s happening with the wedding?” Kotb asks in conclusion, while a laughing Stefani takes it in stride.
“Wow. That’s a really good question!” she tells Kotb. “The good news is that we still like each other a lot. That’s good.”
So, no split on the horizon — phew. But Stefani is still infuriatingly noncommittal about when that actual wedding might happen.
“I don’t know,” she shrugs. “We’ll see what happens.”
Stefani and Shelton have been spending quarantine together at the country star’s ranch in Oklahoma, getting used to country living and waiting for a return to normal — like their current shooting schedule for The Voice. Now, Stefani’s just glad they’re back to doing what they do best — coaching up-and-coming superstars and keeping us guessing about their wedding plans.
