Gwen Stefani recently opened up about the possibility of marrying Blake Shelton and reuniting with her No Doubt bandmates at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre. The former of these two scenarios is still a possibility, but the latter definitely isn’t going to happen.
Gwen chatted about her boyfriend and her old band during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on iHeartRadio’s KIIS-FM. There have been persistent rumors that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are planning a wedding, so Seacrest decided to ask Gwen if she really is thinking about getting married again. According to the “Misery” singer, she’s not sure that she’s ready to walk down the aisle just yet.
“I don’t know! God, I don’t know. Everything is going so quickly. I’m in the moment and um —,” Gwen responded, stumbling over her words. “Look at me! You got me tongue-tied.”
Gwen may be playing coy by claiming that she doesn’t know whether she and Blake are going to tie the knot. Us Weekly reports that Gwen and Blake have already hired a wedding planner, and a source close to the couple says that they are talking about having a “low-key” ceremony at Blake Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma. Life & Style backs up the report that Gwen and Blake want to get married in the Sooner State, and one of its sources claims that the couple is planning a Christmas wedding.
According to the Oklahoman, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were in Oklahoma over the weekend. On Friday night, Gwen surprised the crowd at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City by sauntering onstage to join Blake for a performance of their duet, “Go Head and Break My Heart.” Gwen shared a photo of the magical moment on Twitter.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Gwen and Blake have performed their duet multiple times during their tour stops, and it’s obvious that Blake loves sharing the stage with his girlfriend. However, three other men who used to be a very important part of Gwen Stefani’s life no longer seem interested in performing alongside her.
During her Ryan Seacrest interview, Gwen talked about being the final performer to take the stage at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California. According to the Los Angeles Times, she’ll rock the concert venue on October 29 and 30. Gwen and her No Doubt bandmates—Tony Kanal, Adrian Young, and Tom Dumont—made a lot of memories on the Irvine Meadows stage, so Seacrest asked Gwen if the guys would join her for one last hurrah.
“You never know what’s going to happen. I mean, look at my life! It’s crazy!” Gwen responded.
However, the solo star’s bandmates were quick to dash any hopes of a No Doubt reunion.
“For those who are asking, No Doubt will not be performing at the final concerts at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater on October 29/30,” Tom Dumont wrote on Instagram.
Gwen’s ex, Tony Kanal, and No Doubt drummer, Adrian Young, also issued responses to Gwen’s tease about a possible No Doubt reunion.

There’s no word on why the guys won’t be joining Gwen, but they may be busy gearing up for the release of their new record. As Billboard reports, the trio teamed up with AFI frontman Davey Havok to create a nameless superband earlier this year. The group began recording an album back in June, and Adrian Young revealed that they’re hoping to go on tour next month. The drummer said that his new group’s sound is nothing like that of No Doubt or AFI, and he thinks that this is “a good thing.”
Thank you to everyone who came out to see us over the last few months. We had such a fun summer and an amazing 2015! pic.twitter.com/CPjzsJrV81

Earlier this summer, Gwen Stefani admitted that No Doubt’s future is uncertain.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen with No Doubt,” she told Rolling Stone. “When Tony [Kanal] and I are connected creatively, it’s magic. But I think we’ve grown apart as far as what kind of music we want to make.”
At least Gwen Stefani now has Blake Shelton to connect creatively with.
