Are Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani getting married over Fourth of July weekend?
According to TMZ, the superstars applied for their marriage license on Tuesday (June 29) in Oklahoma. The report states that Shelton and Stefani visited the Johnston County Court Clerk to apply for the license and that they have 10 days from the date they filed to wed, per the state of Oklahoma.
Sources tell TMZ that the couple will wed on Saturday (July 3) at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch. The pair will allegedly tie the knot outdoors as long as the weather holds up. They reportedly jetted off to Oklahoma after Shelton wrapped filming for the upcoming season of The Voice.
Shelton proposed to Stefani in October of 2020 after a five-year long relationship. They first met in 2014 while on the set of NBC’s The Voice. The pair became a couple in 2015 and officially confirmed their romance at the 2015 CMA Awards. Since then, they have virtually been inseparable.
Shelton previously revealed that they hoped to wed sometime in 2021 when it was safe to mingle again.
