Now that Gwen Stefani has had her bridal shower, can the big day be far away?

A source tells People magazine that Gwen and fiance Blake Shelton are “both ecstatic” that they can “finally” tie the knot, adding, “They are getting married this summer.”

“Ever since they got engaged, they have both been adamant that no wedding will happen until it’s safe for family and friends to attend. Gwen expressed early on that she really wanted a summer wedding,” the source adds.

“She was upset earlier this year when it seemed to be no end in sight for the pandemic. She slowly started planning the wedding this spring, though,” dishes the source, who also reveals that “Gwen’s boys will be very involved” in the ceremony.

Gwen’s boys are 15-year-old Kingston, 12-year-old Zuma and 7-year-old Apollo, who she shares with her ex-husband, rocker Gavin Rossdale.

“Blake is a great extra dad and very close with the boys,” says the source.

Don’t expect their nuptials to be too country-fried, though: Blake has said that he’s leaving wedding planning duty to his bride-to-be. 

“If I was picking our meal, it would just literally be everything fried,” he previously told USA Today, mentioning chicken tenders and french fries as items he’d put on the menu. He jokes, “I think she knows that it would be a pretty classless wedding if I was in control.”
