Blake Shelton revealed hints to where he and fiance Gwen Stefani are in planning their wedding timeline, as well as opening up about the challenges he is facing in shedding weight for the big day.

During the often hilarious interview with The Ride with Kimo & Heather on KFROG, the Minimum Wage singer said he has not even started losing weight. "Oh god no! Of course I want to." He further explained: "The good thing for me is we haven't set a wedding date so I don't have to start yet!"

"I don't want to lose the weight for no good reason. I'm not going to waste my time losing weight for no good reason."

Blake cheekily added: "I gotta leave it tacked on till the end."

Blake Shelton proposed to Gwen Stefani in October 

"I love my stepfather and I look up to him and he’s like a father to me, so I have a good inspiration in my life for how to do this and the kind of stepdad I want to be."

"And I take it very serious. But I also have a blast with it, I’m not gonna lie. I don't take it so serious that I'm not enjoying this time because I really am, especially now that we're five years into this thing. I can't imagine my life without these kids now." 

Blake also very sweetly shared how lucky he feels to be with Gwen, in speaking on the T-Mobile commercial that first aired during the Super Bowl this weekend.
