Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton sometimes give a peek into their relationship through their posts on social media. Stefani revealed how they celebrated the country singer’s 43rd birthday. Find out who he got a kiss from and more.
Blake Shelton’s new duet with Garth Brooks was released on his birthday
Garth Brooks previously was a key advisor on The Voice for Season 11. So he got to work with Blake Shelton before. Years later, the singers have teamed up for a duet called “Dive In” which was released on June 18.
Brooks talked about what it was like recording the song with Shelton. “He was fun,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “He came to the studio and just did a good old summertime anthem. It’s called ‘Dive Bar’ and it just talks about spending your summers in the dive bars across America, and it’s going to be fun.”
He also noted how similar their voices sound on the song. “Sometimes I didn’t know if it was me or him, because we’re basically raised around the same area, so it was pretty cool.”
What was The Voice coach doing on the day the new song came out? He was getting a kiss from someone other than his girlfriend at the aquarium.
Stefani shared a video of Shelton getting a kiss from a sea lion
Stefani shared multiple pictures of her boyfriend on Instagram from throwback photos to a more recent selfie of them together. She also included a video of Shelton walking over and bending down to get a kiss on the cheek by a sea lion.
She wrote in the caption, “Happy b day to my favorite human!!! Can’t believe your mine #soooooolucky!!!! Gx #2019 #gemini #greatestguyiknow thank u shedd aquarium Chicago for an amazing unexpected b day tour!!!”
Shelton shared his own video on Instagram in celebration of his birthday. It showed children who are patients wishing him a happy birthday and thanking him for his support. He wrote in the caption of the video, “Thank you @cmnhospitals for the best birthday video ever…”
The aquarium visit was a private one for family
Other people are seen in the video at the aquarium with the country singer. It turns out the tour was a family affair.
“They were there with their family wanting to visit the aquarium. They had some great, private family time and were able to see the animals behind-the-scenes,” a source told E! News. “They were lovely and in a great mood; they were great.”
The family reportedly didn’t go all out for the occasion. “There wasn’t any type of special birthday celebration for Blake, but everybody knew it was his birthday,” said the insider.
The couple is obviously still going strong and will be reunited on the next season of The Voice. Adam Levine left the show and Stefani is the one coming into his place.
Stefani has talked about her excitement over returning to the show and working with Shelton again. The Voice will most likely return in the fall, but a premiere date has yet to be announced.
