Blake Shelton recently spoke on his summer wedding to Gwen Stefani while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“At one point, I was saying in an interview, ‘We’re letting Gwen do whatever she wants for the wedding.’ And then some writer wrote, ‘Well, oh, look, he’s already a lazy deadbeat husband,’ ” Blake said, before joking, “But the truth is: I am.”
“What do I know about that stuff?” he added, speaking of their wedding planning.
“Of course it was her and her vision. And all I had to do was drink and kiss Gwen Stefani, I mean, my God. The greatest gig I’ve ever had.”
Shelton and Stefani had close friends and family at their wedding with less than 20 guests. “That’s exactly what it needed to be,” Blake said.
Shelton also spoke about the couple’s upcoming Christmas plans and what he’ll likely get Stefani for Christmas. He said that he usually tells her not to get him anything, but there ends up being “a pile of crap this tall” of gifts.
“Literally today I got on the phone with the internet company because they thought there was credit card fraud because I kept going back to this website buying her more stuff,” Shelton said, before adding, “I’m getting her a bunch of stuff. I don’t know that she’s going to like any of it but it’s going to look good in the wrapping paper, you know?”
Shelton and Stefani were married at Oklahoma ranch in July 2021. They got engaged in October 2020. Last month, he spoke to about their wedding vows, which they personally wrote for each other.
“The thing that got to me was she spoke about my [late] brother and my dad as if she had known them almost,” Shelton said about her vows.
“She didn’t make it seem that way, but it felt that way as she was speaking about them. She said she wished they were there and what kind of men she thinks they must’ve been.”
He added, “Man, it hit me. Like, I couldn’t believe how hard it hit me. I felt like at this point, I’ve kind of gotten calloused. I guess I’m not because that absolutely slayed me. It’s hard to even remember what else she even said. I’ll never forget that feeling.”
