Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s romance shocked everyone, even ‘The Voice’ host, Carson Daly! When he was grilled by his ‘TODAY’ show co-anchors about their new admitted relationship he coyly pretends he had no idea — do you believe him?
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton‘s new romance is shocking everyone, even their friends! Carson Daly, who spends quite a bit of time with Gwen and Blake on the set of The Voice, told Matt Lauer and the rest of The Today Show morning anchors that he didn’t even think Blake could land a girl as hot as Gwen!
“C’mon I’m a loyal guy,” Carson told his co-hosts, before saying, “I didn’t know. I didn’t think Blake could get a girl as hot as Gwen to be honest. He’s a goofy cowboy. She’s the queen of cool. But God bless them. They’re two of the nicest people in the business. We’re thrilled they are finding each other and good luck, we love you.” He also added: “I’m not shocked given the photos that came out on Halloween. I was a little shocked last night to hear Gwen’s people put out an official thing because apparently she went to Nashville. She didn’t show up on the show last night but I think they were going to go to some after parties but I don’t think they ever did. I’m a loyal friend. It’s not my story to tell, but now it’s out.”
But what’s up with everyone saying they are surprised he landed a hottie like Gwen? Even Luke Bryan said it at the CMAs: “Did he? He didn’t come out about that,” Luke told E! News. “You’re trying to trick me…alright I need to see online where Blake has stated that, and then I will comment on it. It can’t be true, because there’s no way Blake could ever score a girl like that. So it’s not true. I mean, come on people!” Isn’t this sort of offensive to Miranda Lambert who is gorgeous and a total catch?!
