Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are said to be planning a wedding after just under one year of dating.
As Gwen Stefani tends to her ongoing tour, which keeps her on the road until October, sources claim she and Shelton, who is in the midst of production on The Voice Season 11, have hired a wedding planner and are “getting hitched.”
While Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have stayed mum on the TMZ report, which hit the web on August 5, they continue to make it clear that they are absolutely in love with one another and thrilled with their exciting romance.
On Thursday, August 4, Shelton appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where he spoke of his amazement in his relationship with Gwen Stefani after the host expressed his own excitement in the high-profile romance.
“I still can’t believe it. I thought she must have, like, some vision problems … Maybe she needs help, I don’t know,” Shelton joked, according to a report by Us Weekly on Friday.

According to Blake Shelton, he didn’t know just how much music Gwen Stefani has put out until recently.
“I didn’t think I knew much of her music until I, until you go to one of her shows, and I remember — this has been like a month ago — she flew into Oklahoma and I was driving to pick her up at the airport,” Shelton recalled. “And I was flipping through XM radio and I stopped on this song and I was like, ‘That voice sounds like Gwen. What in the hell is this — why don’t I know this?’”
“It’s this song called ‘It’s My Life,’ which was a huge record for [Stefani’s band No Doubt],” he continued. “And I’m going, ‘I didn’t know Gwen sang that song.’ I’ve always known ‘Hey Baby.’ I didn’t know she sang that freakin’ song. All these songs. It’s like, ‘Wow, that was you?! That’s you and we’ve kissed? Wow, that is amazing!’”

Gwen Stefani has been open with her love for Shelton in recent months as well and during an interview with Refinery29 earlier this year, she admitted that their relationship “saved her” after she went through a traumatic divorce from former husband Gavin Rossdale, the father of her three boys, Kingston, 10, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2.
“It was a really super-unexpected gift to find a friend, somebody who happened to be going through the exact same thing as me, literally mirroring my experience. I don’t think it’s an accident that that happened. It saved me,” Gwen Stefani explained to the outlet.
In August of last year, just weeks after Shelton confirmed he and Miranda Lambert had decided to end their marriage after just four years, Gwen Stefani confirmed the end of her 13-year marriage. Months later, the couple went public with their romance and have been going strong ever since.
In addition to getting to know Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton has also grown close to her boys and earlier this year, during spring break, her three sons traveled to Shelton’s home in Oklahoma for a number of outdoor activities. The boys have also been seen with Shelton numerous times in Los Angeles.
Following the debut of her romance with Shelton, Gwen Stefani released a new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and in her first single off the compilation, “Make Me Like You,” she sang of her relationship with the country singer.
