Miranda Lambert's ex-husband told Today show hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on Monday morning, "I just want to get slimed!"

What, like this, Blake?

Okay, so maybe that does look kind of fun. And he is smiling.

Anyway, he continued on Today, "I want to do this thing with kids, it's fun. My agent called and asked me if there was anything I wanted to do, and I had been thinking, 'I want to host those Kids' Choice Awards.'"

Personally, I think he also might be trying to impress Gwen's sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 18 months. The Voice cohosts just confirmed that they're dating, and I have to respect a man who works to make his girlfriend's kids like him.

But it could just be that he loves being on stage, too. He said in a statement that he can't wait for the "madness, excitement, and endless slime" promised on the Kids' Choice Awards. He also called it "the ultimate party for kids."

Sounds like it's going to be quite a party for him too. Here's to getting slimed!
