Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani – one of America’s favorite couples – might just be tying the knot sooner than expected. And, sooner could mean as early as this summer.

Shelton talked about their upcoming wedding during a guest-hosting appearance on “TODAY With Hoda & Jenna” on Wednesday (March 31). And, according to what he shared, the couple is motivated to go ahead and walk down the aisle for a couple of reasons.

One reason, according to Shelton, is that the COVID-19 pandemic is possibly nearing its end. That is motivating him and Stefani to move forward with their wedding. Also, Shelton doesn’t want his work schedule on “The Voice” to limit the time he will have to spend with his new wife.

“I’m afraid if she and I wait till next November, then I’m right back into ‘The Voice,'” Blake Shelton said. “And I really want to be able to have plenty of time before and after, so hopefully this summer. I think we’re right here at the point with COVID, it looks like it may be OK, but I don’t know. But that’s tentatively the plan.”
