A source close to the couple shared with PEOPLE that the wedding of this celebrity duo’s dreams is fast approaching.
“They are both ecstatic that it can finally happen,” said the source. “They are getting married this summer.”
The iconic couple, who met while working on The Voice, have kept fans on their toes after their engagement in October.
Having to have placed everything on hold, it seemed the future Mrs. and Mr. Shelton were putting their plans for the big day on the back burner. However, the insider explained that the bride-to-be did not give up hope this spring.
“Ever since they got engaged, they have both been adamant that no wedding will happen until it’s safe for family and friends to attend. Gwen expressed early on that she really wanted a summer wedding,” said the source. “She was upset earlier this year when it seemed to be no end in sight for the pandemic. She slowly started planning the wedding this spring though.”
Now with a summer wedding underway, celebrations have been in full swing! Stefani shared with fans via Instagram story on Thursday (June 10) that she was “kidnapped” by her family for a surprise bridal shower.
At the special shower, family and friends showered Stefani with gifts, sentiments and love. Things we know will also be present on the big day.
Always keeping family in mind, the couple has made it clear that Blake will not be the only special man in Stefani’s life at the wedding. The inside source told PEOPLE that her sons will have a large role.
“Gwen’s boys will be very involved,” said the source. “Blake is a great extra dad and very close with the boys.”
Back in December, we learned just how much Stefani’s sons meant to Shelton, as he took this next big step! According to PEOPLE, a source shared that Shelton asked for their blessing before popping the question.
After having received a yes from Kingston, Zuma, Apollo AND Gwen, it is safe to say the two are meant to be.
