Then when Stephen joked that he assumed Gwen had “lost a bet,” Blake encouraged the comedian to hold on to it. “Attach it, I can take it, I can take it,” he said. “Trust me, I understand.”

He added, “However, you cannot blame me for taking the opportunity.” This resulted in the host’s emphatic consent.

Blake has to get used to this type of exchange, as it mirrored a chat he had with Today’s Natalie Morales on February 10th via the Super Bowl spot.

“Every day when I look at social media or wherever, there is always someone commenting, ‘Man, what the hell happened to this world where Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are now a thing,'” Blake said with a smile . “So we thought it would be fun to have some fun with it.”
