Blake Shelton introduces his new wife as ‘Gwen Stefani Shelton’ during CMA Summer Jam duet…three weeks after getting married
They tied the knot three weeks ago.
And it looks like Gwen Stefani, 51, may have already legally changed her name to take the surname of husband Blake Shelton.
During a July 27 duet at CMA Summer Jam in Nashville, Tennessee, the 45-year-old country singer officially introduced the Hollaback Girl singer as “Gwen Stefani Shelton,” sparking cheers from the crowd.

The Voice judge played his song “Happy Anywhere” with his band before Stefani came out to join him for the second part of the song.
During the performance, she looked just like the edgy new bride in a white lace dress with bare shoulders, while the country doctor wore jeans and a black button-down.
During an instrumental break, Shelton addressed the crowd as he gave her an introduction – which was captured in a couple of fan videos on Twitter.

The couple married on July 3 in Tishomingo, Oklahoma — where Shelton has a ranch — surrounded by 40 of their closest family and friends.
The Voice host Carson Daly acted as a nod to the first two encounters on the hit NBC show in 2014, and they were engaged in a chapel built on Blake’s ranch in October 2020.
The couple exchanged personal vows as Blake sang his own to his bride-to-be and she wore two custom Vera Wang dresses throughout the evening.

And it seems Blake’s Tuesday night reintroduction made up for an earlier misstep he had during a surprise gig with Gwen at his Tishomingo restaurant days after the wedding.
After introducing her by her maiden name, the “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” singer joked, “I thought it was Gwen Shelton now!”
In her first interview since she tied the knot, she told Jade Iovine about her tell me about it podcast that the day was “one of the happiest moments” of her life.
“It was more than I thought it would be,” gushing that she still feels “total honeymoon vibes” with him.
