Blake Shelton ''thinks about marrying'' Gwen Stefani.

The 'God Gave Me You' hitmaker - who was previously married twice - thinks about getting hitched a third time to the 'Used To Love You' singer but doesn't think it will be ''anytime soon''.

Speaking to CMT, he said: ''I think about [marrying her]. I don't think it's anytime soon or anything. The more time that goes by, I guess, the closer you'd be getting to that.''

Meanwhile, Gwen previously insisted her relationship with Blake ''keeps getting better''.

She shared: ''He got sexier. It just keeps getting better and cuter and more country.''

Blake had also admitted to realising how much he's ''missed out'' on since welcoming Gwen's sons - Kingston, 11, Zuma, nine, and Apollo, four, who Gwen has with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale - into his life.

He shared: ''At this point in my life, I kind of had put [having kids] as like, 'Well, that wasn't meant to be.' Then all of a sudden it happens one way or another and it's like, 'Wow, I missed out on a lot.' And so having them around ... I don't even know how to describe it. It's so much fun.''

Blake had said he was ''in love'' with Gwen's kids but says it was ''awkward'' getting to know them at first.

He explained: ''For a long time, it was awkward trying to figure out what my place is and in their mind too. The best part for me, selfishly, is discovering a part of myself that I guess I never really knew was in there. It's definitely an instinct that kind of kicks in. There's days where you go, 'Oh my God, when does school start?' An hour later you're going, 'God, I can't wait 'til they get home.' They're so damn funny. It's just my first time being around it, and it's easy to fall in love with those kids. They're special.''
