When the news broke that The Voice co-stars Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani and were a “thing,” fans were puzzled. As it turns out, the lovebirds were slightly blindsided by the unexpected relationship too.
In an interview with Sunday TODAY, Shelton reveals that Stefani “saved his life.”
The summer of 2015 was a sizzler for both stars as their marriages were falling apart. At the time, glam rocker, Stefani was married to icon, Gavin Rossdale with whom she shares three sons. Shelton and Lambert were on top of the world making career headlines and often mentioned as country music’s power couple. When heartbreak rumors circulated, no one could have predicted that the follow up to both relationships ending in the big D, could be a modern fairytale.
The “Ill Name The Dogs” singer candidly tells, TODAY “I think if Gwen and I were being honest right now, talking about this, I think in the back of our minds we both kind of thought, This is a rebound deal because we're both coming out of a pretty low spot in our lives and we're kind of clinging to each other to get through this."
Three years into this surprising romance, Shelton and Stefani appear to be in a constant state of giddy jitters. Shelton, who is known for his sense of humor and witty remarks, seems really serious about this one. The singer gushes, “Every day that goes by feels like a stronger bond between the two of us.”
What began as a tale of two broken hearts, could be another great country classic love song where the country boy gets the glam rocker girl.
