Gwen Stefani Gives the Reason Why She Loves Visiting Blake Shelton in Oklahoma
At first, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton seemed so different since she’s a pop star and he’s a country singer. Now that they have spent more time together they have spoken about what they love doing together. Why does Stefani love visiting him in Oklahoma? Here is what she said and more.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are about to celebrate four years together
The couple will be reunited on The Voice together for Season 17, years after they met and started dating while working together on the show. Shelton recently talked about how it’s shocking they’ll be celebrating four years together soon.
“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.”
The country singer also touched on the engagement and marriage rumors. “Obviously, that’s gotta lead somewhere, but I promise you, we won’t break the news in any of the grocery store trash magazines,” he told Entertainment Tonight. The couple spent some time together back on his Oklahoma ranch.
She previously said Shelton’s ranch is perfect for her sons
The pop singer sometimes brings her three sons to her boyfriend’s ranch. She revealed why it’s perfect for them.
“It’s very tribal,” she told Marie Claire. “Blake has a sister, she comes with her kids. We cook and get muddy and dirty. There are ATVs. Being a mother of three boys, it’s kind of the perfect place. Everything is real now, whereas before, things didn’t seem so real.”
She has also talked about coming across animals on the ranch, which inspired her to write a song. The Voice coach revealed to Jimmy Fallon that she was going for a jog “Then, like a nerd, as the wildebeest were passing by … I was running and I was like, ‘Ooh, maybe I’ll just try singing something, maybe something will come,’ and the whole chorus to the song ‘Christmas Eve’ came.”
Stefani says Oklahoma fills the need for space
Chances are the singer is stuck in cities often. She films The Voice in Los Angeles and she has a residency in Las Vegas. Stefani revealed that Oklahoma is a welcomed change for her.
“There’s something about going to Oklahoma that fulfills a need inside me that I didn’t even know I had,” she told Travel Girl. “It’s a need for space, nature and freedom. You don’t really think about it until you have the freedom of going somewhere like Oklahoma where it’s just miles of untouched nature and it’s so beautiful.”
She continued, “It’s really something I didn’t even know I was craving. I feel really blessed to travel there. It’s a place where I can unwind, just have fun and not think about anything. My family really enjoys it as well.”
It sounds like Stefani has really embraced being in Oklahoma. Maybe that will help her win over more country stars this season of The Voice.
