Finding the love of your life is not an easy task, but somehow, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have managed to do just that! The “Hollaback Girl” songstress and the country crooner, who announced their engagement in October 2020, knew they had something special when they began dating in 2015.
“Life is full of surprises,” Gwen gushed during an appearance on Today in September 2019. “I just never thought in my wildest dreams, on paper, a cowboy and a ska-like girl from Anaheim would be hanging out, but it works perfect and we’re just having so much fun and we just feel so blessed to be at this point in our lives.”
Gwen and Blake have been getting along so well that the Grammy Award winner has already become a person who Gwen’s kids — Kingston, Zuma and Apollo — can depend on. Since Blake came into their lives, he’s filled in the role of an amazing stepfather.
“He is a good dad, actually,” Gwen, who shares her brood with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, sweetly marveled about Blake. “He’s been helping me out a lot, so I literally get to the point where I’m like, ‘You gotta get home, I need help.’ It’s hard. I got three boys.”
The handsome heartthrob has even met Gwen’s beloved mom and dad, Patti Flynn and Dennis Stefani. “When they’re in L.A., they go to church on the weekends with the kids or to Orange County to see Gwen’s parents,” a source previously told Us Weekly.
However, when they’re visiting Blake’s home state of Oklahoma, the pair like to do a lot of different activities together. “Blake loves getting dirty with the boys. They’re always playing basketball or running around,” the source said. “They love it there because it’s just the five of them out on the land, hunting or hiking.”
It’s crystal clear that Gwen and Blake are meant to be. In fact, the ACM winner knows he hit the jackpot with the blonde beauty.
“She’s everything that you could hope a human being could be. That’s what Gwen is,” Blake said on Today in 2018. “I’ve learned more from Gwen Stefani as a human being and how to grow as a human being than I have from anybody ever in my life. Anybody.”
