It seems like only yesterday that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were singing songs on stage about their love for each other and Gwen Stefani was happily married to her grunge rock star husband Gavin Rossdale, but as with most celebrity romances, that all came to a fast and depressing end, surprisingly not long after Gwen and Blake started sharing the stage on NBC’s talent show The Voice. Now the couple who has been together for only a short time have announced that they are planning on getting married.
The Road to their Engagement
Even though she’s a little bit rock n’ roll and he’s extremely country, the two judges from The Voice are planning on moving forward with their wedding plans. They have apparently hired celebrity event coordinator Jerri Woolworth to help them plan their special day, according to reports from TMZ.
This news comes just four months after Gwen, age 40, had officially finalized her divorce to Gavin Rossdale after they had been married for 13 years.
Gwen had recently talked to Cosmopolitan Magazine about her split with her long-time husband and said that she “went through months and months of torture” before she finally made the decision to put an end to her marriage to Rossdale, with whom she has three children.
Shelton is no stranger to walking down the aisle. If all goes well, this will be his third marriage. The 46 year old was married to his high school sweetheart Kaynette Williams before he married fellow country music singer Miranda Lambert.
According to fans who were at a recent concert, Lambert is still having a hard time getting over Shelton. She broke down in tears during a live show in Chicago last Friday while she was performing the song “Over You” which she co-wrote with Shelton. The crowd of fans sang along to help her finish out the number.
A Simple Kind of Life
But it seems that Stefani and Shelton are planning on making beautiful music together. They have bonded while working together on the NBC reality singing competition show and have helped each other throughout their damaged marriages before they even became a couple themselves, which became official last October. A friend of Shelton’s says that “He hasn’t been this happy in years.”
A close friend to Blake’s has said that “The divorce had its place in Blake’s life, but he doesn’t dwell on it, He’s in a better place now, and he’s very grateful for everything that’s happened. He’s come out of this a better person and a happier person.”
The same sentiment goes for Stefani as an insider close to the singer says that “Before dating Blake, Gwen seemed lost. She had the roughest time with her divorce, but they almost rescued each other. Their relationship is almost too good to be true.”
With their top-notch wedding planner, the couple will be getting an expert’s touch from someone who is known for their over-the-top events. Woolworth has planned events that were attended by some of the world’s most famous and elite individuals. She has also previously run the red carpet for the Country Music Awards.
Blake Can’t Stop Talking About His New Love
Blake recently sat down with the anchors at the Today show following his performance at the Rockerfeller Plaza as part of the show’s summer concert series. After performing his hits like “She’s Got a Way With Words”, “Came Here to Forget” and “Boys Round Here”, He talked about his famous girlfriend and how they came together to record the song “Go Ahead and Break My Heart”.
“It’s funny because I only started the song just to try to impress her.” He admitted. “At that time, we were getting to know each other and I thought, ‘Oh I’ll writer her a song. That’s what I’ll do.”
Obviously his plan worked and when he asked Stefani to help him finish it, he was very surprised at how well she wrote the next verse. “It worked out good for the album.” He said.
The amazing thing is that Gwen had never wrote a song along with Rossdale during their 13 years together. However she said that writing a track with Shelton came naturally.
It is obvious that Shelton can’t stop gushing over Gwen. Recently on Late Night with Seth Meyers, he told the talk show host that he’s “dating up” saying that “I still can’t believe it. I think that she must have some vision problems.” He joked. “Maybe she needs help.”
