Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani Were All Smiles As They Rang in His 44th Birthday
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been so in love since they began dating back in 2015 after meeting on The Voice. The two both went through divorces around the same time, which helped them develop a close connection. Now, nearly five years later, they’re still going strong. And they looked happier than ever at Shelton’s recent birthday party.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani met on the set of ‘The Voice’
When Shelton and Stefani were first introduced back in 2014, they were both still married to their exes. Shelton had been with country star Miranda Lambert since 2005, while Stefani had been with singer Gavin Rossdale since 1995. Shelton and Stefani met on The Voice, and though nothing was romantic between them at first, things behind the scenes of the couple’s respective marriages weren’t going too well.
In July 2015, Shelton and Lambert announced their divorce, and, surprisingly, Stefani filed for divorce from Rossdale only one month later. Though there were no rumors of a fling happening between the two, the timing was interesting. By November 2015, Shelton and Stefani had gone public with their relationship — and they’ve been together ever since.
There have been rumors the two are talking about marriage
It’s been nearly five years since the couple started dating, and there have been rumors swirling that things might still get even more serious. Plenty of sources close to the couple have said they’re headed for marriage, though Shelton hasn’t popped the question just yet. The two were with their former partners for years, and they likely want to take things slow and make sure they’re truly right for each other before tying the knot.
There have also been rumors that coronavirus has affected the couple’s future plans. The two have been quarantining together, and though they are reportedly ready to wed, they are choosing to wait until the pandemic is over and social distancing guidelines are lifted.
Shelton and Stefani seemed so in love at his recent birthday party
Over the weekend, Shelton celebrated his birthday with Stefani and some close family and friends at his Oklahoma ranch, where the two have been staying since the pandemic started. And according to reports, the two seemed more in love than ever. Stefani posted a loving photo of her man to Instagram to wish him a happy birthday; she even wished him a happy Father’s Day shortly after.
Shelton’s massive cake was a tractor that featured figurines of him and Stefani, and the two posed in front of the cake, later sharing a kiss as well.
The two will reunite for fans on the next season of ‘The Voice’
Fans of the couple will be happy to know that they can see them every week on The Voice, as Stefani is rejoining the judges alongside Shelton, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson for the show’s upcoming season.
It’s still unclear when or if the two will get married, but they’re clearly living their lives to the fullest. Stefani’s kids also attended Shelton’s birthday, and given her Father’s Day shoutout to him, it seems they have a good relationship with him as well.
