With the holiday season in full swing and Christmas right around the corner, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are sharing details about their holiday plans and traditions.
Shelton admits things tend to get a little crazy when it’s time to open presents, especially with Stefani’s sons, Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 5, around.
“You know, it’s chaos. Let’s just face it,” the “Hell Right” singer shared with E! News. “At our house, it’s literally chaos. There’s not one thing outside of just—they have that moment when they run through the wrapping paper wall that she sets up every year. That’s about the only thing that I think consistently happens. You know, one year, there will be a fight over a toy that the other ones didn’t get. And the next year, they all get along.”
When it comes to Christmas traditions, the couple has adopted a unique kitchen ritual.
“Me and Blake will have, like, a tradition of always trying something new that we’ve never—like, just look on the internet and find, like, a recipe, ‘That looks delicious. Let’s try that!’ You know,” she shared on the red carpet prior to The Voice this week.
In 2018, the pair made an Italian dish known as a Timpano Dome, which includes pasta, cheese and meats wrapped in a butter crust. Even though Stefani was hoping to bring the dish back again this year, Shelton won’t budge on their plans.
“I wanted to do it again,” she confessed. “But he’s like, ‘No, our tradition is not a tradition.’ I was like, ‘Okay, let’s move on.'”
Shelton and Stefani’s Christmas celebrations will likely begin after they wrap this season of The Voice. The finale is scheduled to air Tuesday, December 17 on NBC.
Before that, Shelton will release his new album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country. Out Friday (Dec. 13), the album features 12 tracks, including seven previously released hits and five new songs. One of the new tracks on the record is “Nobody But You,” Shelton’s new duet with Stefani.
