He revealed that they both agree that if they are going to pull off the ultimate publicity stunt, which is what their relationship is. 

They wanted to follow through and went ahead and got married. Then the host showed one of his wedding pictures where Blake says Gwen’s arm is perfectly placed to drop to block his double chin right there.

Blake, for his wedding, wrote a song for Gwen Stefani. He says that he didn’t feel any pressure because his lady didn’t know he would do it; he felt like there was no bar to set right there. 

Blake pointed out it was Carson’s idea to write down our vows or whatever. Blake revealed that Gwen has always been constantly on his ass about whether he should be writing more songs. 

The lady asked him, "how come he doesn’t write more songs?”. He admitted that he has gotten lazy about it over the years, so he decided that he would step up and come up with something, so he did. 

He also reveals that he had reversed the song so many times that at the time of the wedding, he looked at his lady and sang. 

The only thing he was concerned about at that moment was breaking the barstool they had for him to sit on. Learn more about it by clicking the link given.
