Blake Shelton would really prefer it if you did NOT believe everything you read.
Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple reports about Shelton and Gwen Stefani splitting up.
For whatever reason, it's like people just don't want to accept that these two artists are fully and truly in love.
"Gwen doesn’t know what hit her. She’s heartbroken," In Touch Weekly wrote as recently as last month about the alleged demise of this romance.
But Shelton is here to tell you the truth straight from the horse's mouth.
(If it's possible for a horse to be very handsome and have a great singing voice, that is.)
In an interview with CMT's Cody Alan over the weekend, Shelton came right out and said he thinks about marrying Stefani, making it as clear as possible that he's in this for the VERY long run.
"I don't think it's anytime soon or anything," he clarified, although he made a point to add:
"The more time that goes by, I guess, the closer you'd be getting to that."
The question did not come out of nowhere.
It was posed up in response to Stefani's recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where the former No Doubt frontwoman said candidly that she was very much open to marrying Shelton.
Like, all it would take it him asking.
"You know what? I love weddings, the kids love him," she told DeGeneres. "Everybody loves him. He's lovable. I think about [marriage] all the time."

Shelton and Stefani are downright adorable together, surprising many celebrity gossip followers who thought this would be some kind of post-divorce fling.
(The stars got together not long after Shelton broke up with Miranda Lambert and Stefani broke up with Gavin Rossdale.)
The two have now been dating for well over a year and they have the full support of the music community.
Entertainment Tonight, for example, caught up with Shelton friend and American Idol judge Luke Bryan at the Academy of Country Music awards on Sunday, where he said the following about any future Blake-Gwen nuptials:
"I'll do the sermon. The sermon? The service? I would be honored to marry Blake and Gwen."
He then made a joke at his buddy's expense:
"If Blake were smart, he would marry her before she goes to an optometrist. Every time I meet Gwen, she's holding her phone way out here. I'm like, 'That's it, she can't see!'"
As for chatter that Stefani is pregnant, let's all slow down and chill out with that talk.
She's 48 years old and she already has three kids.
We do not see children in Shelton and Stefani's future, as much as some folks out there and nearly every tabloid would love to see this happen.
We'll just be content instead to sit back and watch these adorable lovers gush over each other in public, quietly wishing they really do tie the knot someday.
"I love you, pretty girl, #truth," Shelton recently wrote on Instagram.
These two are the best.
