Blake Shelton Opens Up About Falling in Love With Gwen Stefani
The 39-year-old country singer talks about how working on The Voice together developed into something more.
“As I was making the record, other developments were happening,” Blake told Rolling Stone. “I was spending some time with Gwen all of a sudden, and she became my closest ally, my friend, my person in my life who had my back, and I had hers. And created this bond with somebody that I never would have thought in a million years.”
As for how they fell in love, Blake said, “We were starting The Voice last year, and I had to sit down and go, ‘Look, by the time this thing airs, my life will have completely changed, and we need to talk about this now because it may affect what we talk about on the show.’ I just felt like there doesn’t need to be secrets. And then the same thing [happened] with Gwen. It was like, ‘Here’s what’s going on, this show ain’t gonna air until three months from now, so let’s get this talked about right now.’”
“That’s how we even found out what was going on,” Blake added. “And we just started to develop a friendship after that. And it took awhile, because it’s chaos. But just over time, seeing each other a lot at work, it just kind of developed into that.”
