“The Voice” star Gwen Stefani confesses her dream to sing a duet with Blake Shelton before they started dating. Now, the couple is married!
“The Voice” coaches Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are a power couple. First meeting on the show in 2014, the singers quickly found a romantic connection. In a recent interview, Gwen Stefani confesses that she dreamed about singing a song with the country star before they even started dating.
“I had this fantasy of writing a song with [him] or doing something,” she says. “At that time of my life, I was really searching for my next music, what I would do. I was really trying to be inspired. The fact that I got to be on one of your songs, that you asked me to be on a song, was my fantasy. Dreams come true, guys. Christmas miracles happen to people!”
Now, the couple sings with each other all the time! From their Christmas duet “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” to Shelton’s singles “Nobody But You,” and “Happy Anywhere,” the pair’s love shines through the music they sing together. It is a really beautiful bond, and Stefani is thankful for it.
‘The Voice’ Star Gwen Stefani Did Not Know Who Blake Shelton Was At First
Before joining “The Voice,” Gwen Stefani had no idea who Blake Shelton was. Although she knew he was a popular judge on the singing competition, Stefani had to search Google to find more information.
“I didn’t know Blake. I didn’t even know that he existed as a human, let alone, an artist,” Stefani says on the couple’s episode of From Apple Music With Love. ““When I got on the show, I was like googling him and watching old reruns of The Voice to try to figure out why people like him so much.”
After watching a few episodes of “The Voice” for herself, she started to develop a little crush.
“One of my nannies was like ‘Oh, he’s so hot.’ I was like, ‘He is? Really? Okay I can see that,’” Gwen shares. “And the more I watched the show, the more I could see ‘Wow, he’s funny, he’s tall.’ I started to get it.”
The couple’s friendship blossomed on the show before moving into a romantic relationship. Both Shelton and Stefani were going through their own divorces. Blake Shelton was previously married to country star Miranda Lambert. Stefani was previous with Gavin Rossdale. The shared experience allowed the pair to support each other through their difficult times. By November 2015, things were official.
What a beautiful love story! We can’t wait to hear the couple sing more together.
