This year the couple made it to four years together since they started dating. The country singer talked about being shocked by this.
“It’s actually shocking that it has already been that long,” he told People. “It’s kind of a blur. It still feels like it’s pretty new to me. I guess it is, relatively. Four years isn’t forever, but man, it seems like it just happened in no time.”

“I’ll even say that she was, of all the coaches, the least that I had gotten to know the first season she was on the show because she had just had a baby, and I mean just had a baby,” he explained.
He continued, “And so any time there was downtime, she was busy. She was gone, she was on her trailers, she was taking care of the baby, you know, and there was never those moments that usually happen on this show, where at the end of the day we’re sitting around out here at the couches and having a drink, talking, laughing.”
Stefani went from the coach he’d knew the least to now being one of the closest people in his life.
