Blake Shelton Admits Meeting Gwen Stefani Has Been The ‘Greatest Part’ Of 10 Years On ‘The Voice’

While reflecting about his 10-year stint on ‘The Voice’ during the show’s anniversary special, Blake Shelton reminisced about meeting his now-fiancee, Gwen Stefani, on the show.

Blake Shelton has The Voice to thank for his relationship with Gwen Stefani, who he’s currently engaged to. On May 3, the show celebrated its 10-year anniversary with a special episode, and Blake discussed meeting Gwen on the show during the tribute. “People ask me all the time, ‘What’s the greatest thing that’s happened to you since you’ve been on The Voice?’” Blake explained. “That’s a no brainer, right? I met my fiancee here!”

Blake has been a coach on The Voice since its very first season in 2011, and Gwen made her debut on the show during season 7 in 2014. At the time, she was married to Gavin Rossdale and Blake was married to Miranda Lambert. However, when Gwen came back for season 9 in 2015, both she and Blake were recently divorced from their former spouses. They connected on a deeper level while dealing with the same heartbreak in their personal lives. Behind the scenes, they quietly started dating, and have been together ever since!

“If you told me back in 1996 that Gwen Stefani was going to be my girlfriend, I would have laughed you out of the room,” Blake admitted on the anniversary special. “I would have thought you were crazy. Saying it right now, I almost bust out laughing, that’s how ridiculous it is.”

However, Blake added that he “loves it” when Gwen is on the show (she returned as a coach for seasons 12, 17 and 19 as well). “She brings a very complicated element of competition for me in particular,” he gushed. “But I love that. I love the challenge. Just knowing that she’s there and she has my back is pretty cool.”

Blake proposed to Gwen in October 2020 after five years of dating. The two haven’t revealed their wedding date yet, but in March, Blake told Hoda Kotb that they’re hoping for sometime “this summer.” Gwen also recently said that she and her man are planning for a “simple wedding” that surprisingly “won’t have a lot of musicians” in attendance. “It’s gonna be, like, my mom and my dad, and like, just literally going to be family,” she explained. “We are looking forward to that, though. It’s going to be fun. We’re going to make it really fun, but it’s not going to be a big, like — you know, it’s not like the king and queen are getting married or something!”

Ryan Reynolds Carries Daughter, 4, On His Shoulders During Cute Family Stroll With Blake Lively

Ryan Reynolds is the sweetest girl dad. The actor carried his middle daughter Inez on his shoulders as he and wife Blake Lively took their dog for a walk in NYC.

Even all masked up, Ryan Reynolds, wife Blake Lively and their adorable daughter Inez were still easily recognizable while strolling through New York City on Tuesday Apr. 27. The Deadpool star‘s handsome brown eyes were visible above his face covering, and he looked so cute giving a shoulder ride to the couple’s four-year-old middle child. Inez has her 33-year-old mom’s blonde, curly locks, and was seen in a colorful outfit, while her parents took their Goldendoodle out for a neighborhood walk.

Inez wore a light pink hooded jacket with a dark pink fuzzy lining. She could be seen wearing a flowy turquoise netted skirt with a pair of dark blue leggings with white polka dots on them. Her blue trainers with hot pink laces went perfectly with the stylishly mismatched outfit. With fashion icon Blake as a mom, Inez has definitely inherited a love of interesting clothes and patterns.

Ryan looked like a tall drink of water, as the 6’2” hunk wore an olive green fitted jacket that buttoned up the front. It was perfect for the spring weather, and he matched it with fitted blue track pants. He wore a black baseball cap for their outing and comfy blue trainers on his feet, so that he could carry Inez for blocks on their nice long walk.

Blake was the most bundled up, as The Rhythm Section star wore a full length camel colored coat, with a fun striped scarf untied down the front in blue, peach and white colors. The stunning actress’ heavily lined blue eyes peeked out from above her mask, as she donned a brown baseball cap that didn’t do much to cover her flowing blonde tresses. Blake was on doggy duty, holding on to her pet’s leash while carrying her phone in her left hand.

The couple is incredibly private what it comes to their children. It was months before Inez’s name was first reported following her Sept. 2016 birth. She made her big debut to the world at the age of three months, when her daddy Ryan received a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in Dec. 2016. But that was her one and only official public appearance, where she was joined by big sister James Reynolds, now six. The event took place prior the the couple welcoming third daughter Betty in Oct. 2019.

Blake’s good pal Taylor Swift managed to officially confirm the names of all three of the Lively-Reynolds children on her gorgeous Folklore album, which dropped in July 2020. Even though Betty was already 10 months old, her name had remained a mystery until Taylor’s Grammy winning LP featured the song titled “Betty” on it. Within the tune, she also had characters named “James” and “Inez,” which completed the trifecta of Blake and Ryan’s daughters’ names.

“Everyone makes mistakes, everybody really misses up sometimes. This is a song that I wrote from the perspective of a 17 year old boy. I named all the characters in this story after my friend’s kids, and I hope you like it!” Taylor, 31, told Country Radio about “Betty” on Aug. 6, 2020. In the total genius that is Taylor’s songwriting talents, “Betty” is told from James’ point of view, the song “Cardigan” is told from Betty’s point of view, and “August” is told from Inez’s point of view.

Gwen Stefani Says She’s ‘Looked The Best’ She’s ‘Ever Looked’ Since Falling In Love With Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani talked about the ‘daunting’ task of recognizing her beauty as she gets older, and revealed that ‘love looks good’ on her.

Gwen Stefani, 51, has opened up about beauty and aging, revealing it was hard to “have to face life” as she got older. Nevertheless, the three-time Grammy Award winner[2] told The Daily Telegraph‘s Stellar that she was feeling great, in a new interview “People talking about my aging is a compliment, I guess. I’m kind of obsessed with how I’m aging, too,” she began. “It’s really hard for everyone to age and have to face life. Especially for females and people who have been in the spotlight it can be daunting, but you tackle it by just trying to be the most beautiful version of yourself inside and out.”[1]

When it comes to beauty, nobody makes her feel as incredible as her fiance Blake Shelton[4], 44, who she got engaged to in October 2020. “Blake is the greatest guy,” she said of her longtime boyfriend. “I look back over the past few years and look at pictures of when I first started kissing Blake, and I look the best I’ve ever looked in my life in those photos. Love must look good on me. I feel like that does show through — it really does.”[3]

Gwen also revealed that she “had no idea who he was,” when she met her fellow The Voice coach on the popular singing reality show in 2014. At the time, Blake was with fellow country artist Miranda Lambert, 37, and Gwen was married to Gavin Rossdale, 55, with whom she shares sons[5] Kingston James McGregor, 14, Zuma Nesta Rock, 12, and Apollo Bowie Flynn, 7. The country crooner recently opened up on The Ride with Kimo & Heather  about his role as a stepfather to Gwen and Gavin’s kids[6].

“There’s definitely nothing easy about it,” he revealed. “I don’t know if it’s as hard, or harder than being a biological parent. I have a stepfather in my life who is one of my heroes. I love my stepfather and he’s like a father to me, so I have a good inspiration in my life on how to do this and the kind of stepdad I want to be.”
