He’s also made news for his weight loss journey after announcing his plan to the public during an interview on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” before he got married to fellow musician Gwen Stefani.

The country singer initially claimed that he had a talk with fellow country artist and friend Luke Bryan about losing weight before the wedding.

“He asked me if I was gonna lose some weight for the wedding, and I said, ‘Of course, I am,’ ’cause I feel like if you say something like that on a public forum, a platform, and you have kind of obligated yourself to make sure that it gets done,” he said.

“It’s out there now, and I don’t want to disappoint my friends and family. They’ve heard me say this now in interviews. They’re just hearing me say it on your show right now that I am going to lose weight for the wedding, but we don’t when that’s gonna be, so why should I start?”

“We don’t have a wedding date, so why would I start trying to lose weight already? You know what I’m saying?” he added.

Blake and Gwen got engaged in Oklahoma in October 2021. The couple announced their engagement on Instagram with a romantic image of Gwen showing off her ring beside her new fiancé.

Throughout his chat with Bryan, Blake also joked that he had to reposition all the mirrors in the home because of his quarantine 117-pound weight gain in September of 2021 while self-isolating at home with his fiancée during the coronavirus pandemic.

“They look like when you’re taking a selfie from up above because I can’t even stand to look at myself in the mirror. So I’ve rearranged them where they’re kind of angled down, looking down on me, so I’m looking up, and it’s not so bad.”

Moreover, Blake was questioned about the possibility of shedding 20 pounds before tying the wedding, and he answered, “I feel like if I say 10, I have to do it. So, 10. It’s out there now; I can’t let people down.”

Blake had previously attempted to lose weight, most dramatically in 2015, shortly after his divorce from Miranda Lambert. According to a friend close to him at the time, he is working out and taking care of himself.

“He worked out before, but now he has more time, and he’s just in a really healthy place. He’s putting energy into his music and his health. He looks fantastic,” his friend told PEOPLE.

Blake is precisely like the rest of us who enjoy eating and aren’t fans of dieting, but he made sure he didn’t eat anything unhealthy during his weight loss journey.

“I have never enjoyed dieting, largely because I feel like I am just walking around starving all day,” he stated. His diet is made up of healthy, natural foods. It is created in such a manner that his diet has a balance of carbs, proteins, and fats.

In an interview with SHAPE, his now-wife Gwen Stefani claimed that she and Blake work out together, in addition to eating healthy. “I eat really clean, do my shows, and work out. I always feel better when I’m in a routine even though I sometimes hate it.”

“I play tennis, badly, with Blake. Then we go to the gym. I like to do squats and lunges and light weights. I don’t go crazy like I used to. I do just enough to make my body feel good,” she continued.

The former Voice coach, who is now coming back for a new season of the competition, also shared that Blake is not the best workout buddy: “He’s a feeder. He’ll go, ‘Here, I bought you some candy.'”

Although Blake didn’t specify his complete workout routine, it seems like Gwen is assisting him in leading a healthy lifestyle and becoming more efficient at the gym.
