The blended family of five had an extra special festive season in 2021 as it was their first one as a married couple. The Voice stars tied the knot in July 2021 on Blake's ranch in Oklahoma, where they got engaged in October 2020, and they split their time between Oklahoma and Los Angeles where Gwen's children attend school.

They keep their family life private but Blake has now shared new details of their holiday season, telling Sounds Like Nashville that the boys had seen a picture of the bird wrapped in bacon and that it was "happening".

"There’s no talking them out of it, based on the picture that they saw, which was the greatest picture you’ve ever seen," Blake added, clearly as enthused about the venture as Kingston, 15, Zuma, 13, and Apollo, seven.
