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!”

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.”
