The couple met while they were both judges on the singing competition show, The Voice. The show is currently in the audition stage of the season, and a husband-and-wife singing duo appeared on the show. The duo, The Dryes, sang “Islands in the Stream,” the country song by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.
Stefani was a huge fan of the performance.
“That song would be my dream, if me and Blake could do that song together one day,” she said.
It’s a sweet sentiment, especially after her last (hilarious) admission. While speaking with NBC Insider alongside her fellow judges, including Shelton, John Legend, and Camila Cabello, she said: “I’m gonna be brutally honest. When I first came on The Voice [in 2014], I didn’t know that Blake even existed really in the world.”
However, she did follow it up with several sweet comments. When she was asked who she would have picked among the judges at the time as a contestant, she revealed that her answer would have been her future husband.
“But then I did my homework and I could see that he was an amazing songwriter, and then I could see everybody falling in love with him. I would probably have picked Blake, because I just feel like he’s so good at the show.”
The star also shared that during her first season, she was drawn to Shelton “like a magnet.”
