Blake Shelton has a lot going for him. He was named Male Vocalist of the Year at Sunday night’s ACM Awards, and People recently crowned him country’s hottest man. And let’s not forget about his nominations at the Grammys and the People’s Choice Awards. Still, despite his growing stardom, the part of Shelton’s life that onlookers no doubt envy the most is his marriage to country queen and East Texan Miranda Lambert.

You would think that country royalty like Blake and Miranda would be living high on the hog, but in a recent interview, he insists that they are devoted to keeping life simple — even on their date nights.

“Miranda loves to sit on the couch and watch movies and drink all night, and there will be at least four dogs piled up on us,” Shelton says about his date nights at home with his honey bee. In a previous interview, he also mentioned that he and Lambert still do their own laundry — even though he hates the chore of folding clothes.

While the country icons gush about their sweet home life, tabloids and eager admirers anxiously wait for the couple to have a baby. For now, though, both country stars insist that having children is a few years away. For the time being, they just treat their four dogs like kids! Although, Miranda has admitted that after watching her man on ‘The Voice’ she sees a much more nurturing side to his personality.

“I see this side of him that’s softer, almost fatherly or big brotherly,”‬ she says. “He’s so protective of his ['Voice' team]. He has this side to him that I didn’t know about.”‬

Although we’d all love to see Shelton and Lambert show off a beautiful baby (with those genes, their babies are sure to be adorable), it looks like it’ll be a while before the beautiful couple gets to chill together at home. With live shows of ‘The Voice’ in full swing and separate ongoing tours, Blake and Miranda will have to keep it long distance for the next several weeks.
