2020 has seen the demise of several celebrity couples, but this unprecedented year has had the opposite effect on Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s relationship. In fact, Shelton says they’ve grown closer than ever over the past few months.
“That’s been the saving grace of 2020 for me,” Shelton shared with K92.3’s Obie and Ashley.
“We’ve seen so many couples fall apart during 2020 because during quarantine I think they find out they’re getting a little too much of this person that they’re with … Gwen and I have found out that it’s the opposite for us.”
Shelton and Stefani, who are currently in the midst of filming NBC’s The Voice, took their relationship to the next level in late October. After five years of dating, Shelton popped the question and Stefani said “yes.”
Now, the pair is in the midst of planning a wedding amid a pandemic. And like many other couples around the world, they aren’t quite sure when they’ll tie the knot.
“Hopefully sometime this coming year we can find a window when it feels like we can start coming out and mingling as people again, you know? And get this wedding planned,” the “Happy Anywhere” singer explained.
“For now, we don’t even have it planned when or anything because we’re just like anybody else in the world. We have no clue what’s coming, but hopefully it’s getting better.”
Shelton also opened up about his bar and restaurant. Ole Red. and explained how he plans to add his personal touch to the Orlando location. Click below to watch.
