New reports are coming in stating that singers Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani want to get married “as soon as possible” even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
A source told Us Weekly that Shelton and Stefani are “keen to make it happen as soon as possible.”
They were reportedly hoping to have a summer wedding, but because of COVID-19, they are pushing it back to the fall.
Another insider told the publication that Stefani, 50, and Shelton, 44, are planning to have two wedding ceremonies: one in Oklahoma and another in Los Angeles, California.
“Oklahoma gives the couple more privacy and the possibilities are endless for a wedding reception people will talk about for years,” the source explained.
Coronavirus has had a huge impact on the lives of Stefani and Shelton, just as it has on millions of other people.
“COVID-19 has turned their world upside down, as it has with so many families,” an insider said last month.
“Gwen knows she is blessed and wants to have the wedding as soon as social distancing guidelines are lifted.”
The two judges of “The Voice” have been quarantining together in Oklahoma with Stefani’s three sons Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6. On Shelton’s birthday back in June, Stefani took to Instagram to gush about her “best friend.”
“Happy birthday @blakeshelton thank u for being my best friend #luckyme #june18,” she wrote.
The couple met back in 2014 on the set of “The Voice,” and at the time, each of them were married to other famous singers: Shelton to country music star Miranda Lambert, and Stefani to singer Gavin Rossdale.
They began dating the next year, when they both divorced their former spouses.
Earlier this year, Stefani began the “formal process” of having her marriage to Rossdale annulled “so she can marry Blake and have it be recognized by the [Catholic] church.”
However, being in quarantine has caused Stefani to change her mind about waiting to get married until the process is complete.
“It has made her realize that waiting for the annulment at this point is just futile because it could take years for the church tribunal to issue the decision,” a source said.
