Blake Shelton talked with Nancy O’ Dell on Entertainment Tonight and addressed all the rumors surrounding he and longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani getting married.

He said, “First of all, the rumors stuff, I’m not gonna sit here and say that it makes me mad. It’s funny. I’ve learned over the years just to take that for what it is. If I am somehow, and Gwen is somehow, newsworthy enough that they have to make up stories about us just to have something to say, then I guess that’s a good problem to have. You know, I gotta say that we couldn’t be happier, and we’ve never been doing better.”

Blake explained that the coupe’s bond gets stronger every day, “Obviously, that’s gotta lead somewhere, but I promise you, we won’t break the news in any of the grocery store trash magazines.” Then spoke directly to O’Dell. “When it happens, you’ll hear about it from somebody like you. Maybe even you, exclusively. You’re credible. You’re incredible, and you’re credible.”

Shelton and Stefani will both appear as coaches on season 17 of The Voice.
