Okay, so what is going on these two?! Wedding bell rumors have been swirling around Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton for MONTHS now. There's no hiding how truly smittin' the pop princess is with her country singing beau, and with every new piece of bling Stefani steps out with on her finger and new sources claiming very week that the couple is definitely tying the knot, we must say that we're getting a little impatient with waiting for them to say "I do." So what's the deal? Just how much longer are we going to have to wait for this wedding? Well, someone finally point-blanked asked the maybe-a-bride-to-be, herself! (Finally, right?)
Rumors of a secret engagement between Shelton and Stefani broke this past summer when reports surfaced that the pair have already recruited a wedding planner to help with the big day details. And earlier this month, a source also revealed to Us Weekly that the couple hopes to walk down the aisle as soon as the end of this year in a country-chic backyard wedding.
"Gwen has said they both want something more low-key than their first weddings," the explained source. "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." So we can expect that wedding invitation in the mail any day now, right?
During Stefani's recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talkshow, the pair discussed Stefani's summer tour that she just wrapped up, her three adorable sons, and — wait for it — wedding plans!
Of course DeGeneres just had to bring up those nuptial rumors. (How could she help herself, right?) "Before I make plans, because I make plans way ahead of time, tell me when you're getting married," she told the "Make Me Like You" singer. YES! Us too, please!!!
"I just need to know so I can clear that schedule," the daytime talk show host continued, as Stefani laughed.
"Okay," the pop star promised. "I'll let you know."
Okay, so that's not exactly the straightforward "Yes, I'm getting married!" response that we were hoping for. But one thing's for sure: Ellen DeGeneres will definitely be making that guest list!
