Blake, 44, appeared on the Today Show recently, where he was Hoda Kotb’s co-host for the day.
After first greeting each other, they began to talk about what kind of life he expects to have once he ties the knot with Gwen, 51.
“Do you picture yourself in ten years, you and Gwen, just out in Oklahoma – not jetting all over the place, do you see yourself living a much simpler life way way down the road?” Hoda asked him.
“I hope that’s not too far down the road. Ten years sounds like way too long to me. I’d like to see that sooner rather than later,” he told her.
“I mean, we both pretty much have taken it to the limit as far as our careers go and touring and now the television thing, it’s been fortunate to accomplish a lot of things that hopefully at some point we’ll get to live some life.
“I think we’re both ready for that honestly.”
He continued to explain that he prefers life out of the spotlight, adding: “The older I get, the more I feel like I’m starting to turn into a little bit of a hermit. Just passing things, except interviews with you, Hoda.”
Following the interview, many fans of the show took to social media to express their distress at the thought of Blake leaving the show.
One person wrote: “The Voice is unquestionably the best competition show. When Adam Levine left the show, I mourned; but if Blake Shelton leaves, I’ll stop watching. HE is The Voice!”
A second one commented: “Blake Shelton is the best thing that ever happen on The Voice, wouldn’t watch it if he leaves.”
And a third one shared: “Please don’t leave The Voice, Blake! It would be boring without you! You make the show!”Blake has been part of the show for 20 seasons[/caption] Blake and Gwen met as judges of The Voice[/caption] Ariana Grande will be replacing Nick Jonas next season[/caption]

Most recently, a source revealed Gwen and Blake have yet to decide when they want to get married this year.
Sources close to the couple told Us Weekly that the Make Me Love You songstress is “pushing hard” to set an early fall wedding date for their first ceremony, which will be in Oklahoma.

However, Blake – who is worth over $100M – wants to get married in the summer.
The only thing stopping them from tying the knot in the summer is the upcoming tornado season, the source revealed.
The source said that the chapel Blake built for Gwen, who wants to get married under the Catholic church, “isn’t built to withstand even a minor wind event.”
No matter what happens, though, the source told the outlet that they will definitely get married before the end of the year.
A second source added: “They are just so excited to be doing this. It’s been worth the wait.”The couple is ready to live in the country[/caption]
Back in February, Blake confirmed what the sources revealed to Us Weekly.
During an interview on The Ride with Kimo and Heather on KFROG, he was asked if he was still planning on losing weight for his and Gwen’s big day to which he replied: “Oh god no! Of course, I want to. The good thing for me is we haven’t set a wedding date, so I don’t have to start yet!”
He added cheekily: “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. I gotta leave it tacked on till the end.”

Gwen posted an Instagram image of the pair kissing as she proudly displayed a diamond sparkler on her ring finger.
Gwen’s caption, addressed to Blake, read: “Yes please!”
Blake shared the same picture on his social media and wrote: “Hey Gwen, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!”
In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this month, Gwen told how shocked she was by Blake’s Fall proposal.
She said: “[I] wasn’t expecting it at the moment that it happened – at all.”
