Gwen Stefani Reveals Why She Felt Getting Married to Blake Shelton Felt ‘Unexpected’

by Clayton Edwards

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been the talk of the country music world for a few years now. They moved slowly from co-workers to lovers. It all started on The Voice in 2015. Stefani and Shelton bonded because they were both newly single. Then, in November of that year, the world discovered that they were dating. They dated until last fall. That’s when they announced their engagement to the public. Most recently, the pair tied the knot at Blake’s Oklahoma home in a custom-built chapel on July 3.

It has been a whirlwind love story for Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. They took each other from heartbreak to newlyweds over the course of a few years. However, Gwen said that she never saw wedding bells in her future. After all, both Gwen and Blake had been married to high-profile individuals in the past. Gwen was married to Gavin Rossdale. Most people remember Rossdale as the lead singer for the nineties alt-rock band Bush. Shelton, on the other hand, was married to country superstar Miranda Lambert. Shelton’s marriage ended in 2015 and Stefani’s divorce was finalized in 2016.

That was Blake Shelton’s second divorce. So, let’s hope that the third time is the charm for the Oklahoma native. He and Gwen Stefani make a great couple.

Gwen Stefani Never Saw the Wedding Coming

 Recently, Gwen Stefani appeared on the Tell Me About It podcast with Jade Iovine. During their chat, the newlywed opened up about how surprised she was to be married again. About the wedding, Stefani said, “It was beyond dreamy but I think the crazy part was just it was so unexpected in my life.” She went on to say that picking a wedding dress never crossed her mind when she and Shelton started dating.

Gwen Stefani went on to say that she feels incredibly lucky to be married. She added, “I think one of those things that you think about a lot in your life is you just don’t know the future.” However, Stefani doesn’t believe that she got to where she is on her own. About that, she said, “I feel like my spiritual journey has really guided me towards this place. This place of peace.” The only thing she has to figure out now is what to do with the rest of her life.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have plenty on their plate right now. So, there wasn’t much time for a honeymoon. Gwen is currently working on a solo album as well as preparing for her upcoming concert series. At the same time, Shelton is filming for The Voice and getting ready to go out on tour.

Blake’s Friends and Heroes Tour kicks off next month. Tickets are still available.
