Gwen Stefani recently got flustered when she was asked if she’ll be marrying country superstar Blake Shelton. Stefani was appearing on the show On Air With Ryan Seacrest at the time, and she responded, “Everything is going so quickly. . . I’m in the moment and, um, look at me, you’ve got me tongue-tied.”
It’s possible that Seacrest hit too close to the truth. A source in Shelton’s camp told US Magazine that the couple are indeed going to tie the knot. “They want to get married before the end of the year,” the insider said.
“They are both very, very happy,” added the source. “Blake is having the time of his life with Gwen and feels so comfortable around her.”
“Gwen has said they both want something more low-key than their first weddings,” another unnamed source said. “It would likely be at Blake’s ranch [in Oklahoma] or in the backyard. Gwen doesn’t really care, she is just in love with Blake and their life together.”
As for official comments Stefani told Seacrest, “I look at this year and I think, ‘I just feel so awake, I feel so alive and so grateful… this year has been so full of so much joy.”
At Shelton’s tour kickoff in Oklahoma City September 9 and 10, the couple performed their duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.”
