The singer wants to lose weight for his wedding to Gwen Stefani but has stopped those plans.
Blake Shelton delays losing weight to marry Gwen Stefani for a strange reason
While country singer Blake Shelton is looking to shed a few pounds before marrying singer Gwen Stefani, he is refraining from hitting the gym for one reason in particular.
Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the 44-year-old shared that he wanted to lose weight before his nuptials, but he didn’t want the idea to be as publicized because he didn’t want to feel obligated to keep the promise.
“I feel like if you say something like that in a public forum, then you’ve forced yourself to make sure it gets done,” he told host Stephen Colbert.
However, he clarified that he and Stefani are in no rush to get married due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, as they want to be surrounded by their loved ones on their special day.
“It’s out there right now and I don’t want to disappoint my friends and family, who have heard me say this,” Shelton said.
“You’re hearing me say on your show right now that I’m going to lose weight for the wedding, but we don’t know when it will be, so why should I start now?”
“The truth is we obviously want to be able to have their parents there, my parents, our families and until that happens, we can’t even make a plan,” he said.
