Blake Shelton e Gwen Stefani si sono frequentati per sei anni prima di sposarsi nell’estate del 2021 e la loro relazione è diventata più forte durante quel periodo. Pochi mesi dopo aver fatto il grande passo, il cantante country ha pubblicato la canzone “We Can Reach the Stars”, che era dedicata a sua moglie ed era significativa per le loro nozze. “Gwen e io abbiamo deciso che avremmo scritto i nostri voti per il matrimonio, ma ho deciso di sorprenderla scrivendo invece una canzone”, ha detto Shelton a People nel novembre 2021. Mentre pubblicava un teaser della canzone sulla sua pagina Instagram al tempo, l’artista di “Nobody But You” è sgorgato da quanto fosse “orgoglioso” di chiamare Stefani sua moglie. “Ecco perché ci siamo sposati in primo luogo. Ecco perché indossiamo anelli … perché vogliamo che tutti lo sappiano”, ha scritto.
Later, Shelton gave insight into how the two singers sustained their strong love for each other.
How Blake Shelton has Gwen Stefani saved in his phone
Even though Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been married for just over a year now, the two "The Voice" coaches have been a couple for much longer than that. However, the romance has not dwindled and the pair still feels butterflies. "I guess when you're our age — and we've been together for seven years — it still seems like it's pretty new to me. The nervous phase is still there," Shelton said, while discussing his relationship on "Today" on September 12. Despite being married, the "She Wouldn't Be Gone" singer viewed his love with Stefani as fresh. "[Gwen is] still in my phone, literally, as 'My Girlfriend,”' Shelton said.
In the past, the country artist has mentioned how fortunate he feels to have the "Don't Speak" singer as his wife. Shelton has gone as far as saying their relationship was evidence God exists. "I think honestly, looking back, that under the circumstances that Gwen and I fell in love with each other and got together was all the proof I needed," he said in February, while speaking at the Country Radio Seminar (via People).
Shelton not only displays great love for Stefani, but he's also fully embraced being a stepdad to her three sons from her marriage to Gavin Rossdale, as the family has become his top priority. "I love all the cool things I get to do with my job, but those things all take a backseat now to Gwen and the kids," Shelton told Entertainment Tonight in August.
