The couple decided to celebrate early this year because they’ll be going back to L.A. to resume filming of the competition show, The Voice, which is set to return to NBC on October 19.
The 51-year-old singer was interviewed by Hoda & Jenna on Monday. She said, “We actually had our Thanksgiving here last night because we had to switch around the schedules this year. So, we had an early Thanksgiving, so it’s just been a lot of fun being out here.”
She added, “We had like 14 different celebrations last night and had to pile them all together so we could fit it all in. It was really good. I made my first pumpkin pie, ever. My mom always does it. I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m graduating onto the next level.’ I actually didn’t panic. It was actually really fun.”
The couple, together with Stefani’s sons and he brother’s family, was staying at Shelton’s property in Oklahoma where they baked pies, including Stefani who baked her first ever pumpkin pie.
She said, “I feel like since we were all locked down, I had to do so much laundry and cleaning and cooking and toilet cleaning and it was like … it was so gross. It was a lot of work.”
She continued, “We had five kids here home-schooling in this old abandoned house that Blake bought on this land. It was like a hoarder’s house. We found some old school desks. They were disgusting and we cleaned them out and the kids were home-schooling in this cabin. It was very extreme.”
Stefani and Shelton are both coaches in The Voice and they went to L.A. to film the blind auditions.
Meanwhile, many fans are wondering when the couple plans on getting married. During an interview with Today, Stefani answered, “Oh, that’s a really good question. The good news is that we still like each other a lot. That’s good. I don’t know. We’ll see what happens.”
The same question was brought up during her interview with Hoda & Jenna where Stefani said, “All of us are rescheduling our lives. We’re on pause. There’s been a lot of blessings in disguise for me. I’ve been working on new music, which I was not expecting to do. When I write music is when I feel the most alive and that whole buzz I get from writing the songs is so fulfilling, so that’s what I’ve been doing.”
