10 Things You Didn’t Know About Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani’s Relationship
After their respective divorces, many were quick to throw country star Blake Shelton and superstar Gwen Stefani together because of their chemistry on The Voice, but others believed it couldn’t be true because they seemed like one of Hollywood’s most unlikely couples. Despite their obvious differences, they have made it clear that they are very much in love. Ever since their relationship was confirmed, their romance has been the headline of many tabloids with everything from starting a family together to secret weddings, but those are just rumors. Here are 10 interesting facts you probably didn’t know about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s relationship:
10. How They Met
Despite being two of the biggest stars in the music industry, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani didn’t meet until they worked together on The Voice. Stefani joined the hit singing competition series for its seventh season in 2014, while she was still married to Gavin Rossdale and Shelton was still married to Miranda Lambert. Prior to Stefani joining the show however, she admits she didn’t know much about him. “I didn’t know Blake Shelton existed in the world! I had no idea,” she said in an interview with Seth Myers.
9. Falling In Love
While she might not have known he existed before starting on the series, they sure know each other now, and although to many it seems their relationship came out of nowhere. Shelton explained how it really happened, and it was as sudden as it seemed. In July 2016, Shelton said their connection from work acquaintances to something more began when he opened up about his then impending divorce from Miranda Lambert. “I won’t forget that day. I looked over at Gwen — who I didn’t really know — and she had these huge tears in her eyes,” he told Billboard. “I thought it was going to be another one of those ‘things are going to be OK’ talks. Instead, she said, ‘I’m going through something very similar to what you’re going through. I understand. And I hate it.'” He added, “That’s kind of how our friendship and bond started, that day. It went from that, to checking in on each other once a week through email—’This s–t happened to me, what happened to you?’—to maybe three times a week, then every day, to ‘Hey, here’s my phone number if you ever want to text.’ Next thing I know, I wake up and she’s all I care about, and I’m wondering if she feels the same about me.”
