Congrats to any fans of The Voice who've been hoping for your two favorite judges to tie the knot, because Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton reportedly aren't waiting to get married! As astute fans already know, the long-time lovebirds have reportedly held off on getting engaged and married while Stefani attempted to have her marriage to ex Gavin Rossdale annulled by the Catholic church. But according to Us Weekly, Stefani has reportedly decided she will marry Shelton with or without the church's approval. (Elite Daily reached out to sources for both Shelton and Stefani and did not hear back in time for publication).
“She very much wants the marriage to be recognized by the church,” the source reportedly told Us Weekly, noting that Stefani is apparently aware her partner is getting antsy to make a trip down the aisle. In fact, Shelton is reportedly so set on tying the knot that waiting for the annulment has allegedly created “tense moments” between them.
Back in March 2019, Us Weekly reported the two were holding off on getting married until Stefani was able to take care of things with the church. “Gwen’s religion has always been extremely important to her, and Blake is completely supportive of this," a source reportedly told the publication at the time.
Even back then, the source reportedly noted that Stefani had already “began the formal process” of having church officials annul her marriage to Rossdale so that she could "marry Blake and have it be recognized by the church.”
Rossdale and Stefani announced they'd be ending their 20-year relationship in August 2015. Just a month prior, in July 2015, Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced that they, too, would be ending their marriage. By November 2015, tabloids were reporting on a romance between Shelton and Stefani.
Yes, it would be great for their fans to get to see them tie the knot in the near future. But what really matters is that the couple is doing what's right for them, right?
