'Gwen Won't Let Me Go': Gwen Stefani Keeps Fiancé Blake Shelton On A Tight Leash During Quarantine
Who wears the pants? Blake Shelton revealed fiancée Gwen Stefani controls who he's allowed to see amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"She’s very strong about this quarantine thing, which is great," Shelton, 44, explained on a new episode of the Apple Music radio show Party Barn Radio With Luke Bryan. “She’s the only person I get to see so, that’s it. No buddy hanging out time.”
While the CDC advises everyone to remain home and practice social distancing, Shelton admitted that he finds it difficult to abide by his new fiancée's rules and regulations. "When you're a prideful, stubborn guy like myself for me to text you back and say, 'Man, Gwen won't let me go.’ That's tough," he confessed. "It’s embarrassing."
After the coronavirus hit, Shelton and Stefani spent most of their quarantine in Shelton's home state of Oklahoma before they eventually moved into their new family home in Los Angeles.
Despite Stefani's strict stance on quarantine, the two have made the most of their extra time at home with one another. "The simple pleasure of being together in one place for an extended period of time has been a real gift," Shelton previously confessed in July. "We cook, we clean, we ride four-wheelers and we just enjoy being with each other and with family."
As OK! previously reported, the "God's Country" crooner proposed to Stefani while they quarantined in Tishomingo, Okla., surrounded by friends and family.
The mother-of-three recently opened up about their engagement and decision to wed after first meeting on The Voice in 2015 while they were both going through divorces.
"I think there was a lot to consider when you have so many people involved. Children, and their hearts, and everybody in my family [and] his family, we all went through a lot together," the "Hollaback Girl" singer shared. "So I think in a romantic way, when you fall in love so hard and so unexpectedly — and so late in your life — you think 'I want to marry you!' That's the first romantic reaction, like, 'Let's get married.'"
Stefani, 51, was first married to Gavin Rossdale — with whom she shares children Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6 — and Shelton was previously married to country star Miranda Lambert.
