But Aguilera did it for them.
“So excited to have you join #TheVoice squad @GwenStefani! Welcome to our crazy fam! Kisses xoxo #blondesdoitbetter,” Aguilera, who will take a break from the show to welcome her daughter with fiancé Matt Rutler, Tweeted on Tuesday.
Shortly thereafter, Stefani finally confirmed the not-so-secret news.
“It’s true! gx @nbcthevoice,” Stefani wrote as an Instagram caption to accompany a shot of her doing the show’s signature peace sign, while holding a mic.
And while Shelton has already sized up the competition, Daly is looking forward to Stefani’s influence over the contestants.
“She’s friends with the other coaches but has a strong opinion, which is also important,” he said. “They can’t all just be too lovey out there. So I think she’d be a solid choice.”
