Blake Shelton has revealed that he is on a mission to lose weight before marrying his fiancee Gwen Stefani. The country music star, who has packed on the pounds in recent months, shared his weight loss goals during an appearance on Luke Bryan's "Party Barn Radio" podcast.
"I feel like if I say 10 [pounds], I have to do it," Shelton said, according to Fox News. "So 10. It's out there now. I can't let people down."
During the interview, Shelton admitted to making minor adjustments around the house so that he did not have to feel bad about his current weight.
"I've readjusted all the mirrors in the house, so they look like when you're taking a selfie from up above because I can't even stand to look at myself in the mirror," he joked. "So, I've rearranged them where they're kind of angled down, looking down on me, so I'm looking up and it's not so bad."
Last year, Shelton told Ellen DeGeneres he had gained weight during the coronavirus lockdown. The singer, who had dyed his hair gray at the time, joked that the extra pounds ruined his new look.
"I actually really liked it," he said of his hairdo, per Fox News. "I would have really liked it better had I not gained 117 pounds during quarantine. I thought it made me look younger, but I was still just as fat. Now I'm actually trying to lose weight."
Shelton and Stefani announced their engagement in October on social media. Sharing a photo of the pair kissing in a tweet, Shelton revealed that Stefani had said "yes."
"Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020... And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!" he wrote in the post.
Taking to Instagram, Stefani used the same image, captioning it "@blakeshelton yes please!"
Shelton and Stefani got to know each other while appearing as vocal coaches on the set of "The Voice" in 2014. At the time, they were both married to other people — Shelton was married to his second wife, Miranda Lambert, and Stefani was married to Gavin Rossdale — but both their relationships came to an end in 2015, the same year they began dating.
