Over the past nearly four years, Blake Shelton and his lovely girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, have become one of the entertainment industry’s favorite power couples. The pair met as judges on the The Voice and began dating soon after their respective divorces from their former partners. Let’s learn a little more about Blake Shelton’s girlfriend below!
1. Blake Shelton’s girlfriend Gwen Stefani is related to Madonna
This should not come as any surprise, given Gwen Stefani’s powerful singing voice, but Stefani and Madonna are indeed distant relatives.
2. Her workout routine smashes male stereotypes
The “Hollaback Girl” singer boasts chiseled abs, but they take some work. However, she does not stick to workout routines designed for the female body. Instead, Stefani opts for traditionally male workouts such as boxing and free weights.
3. Stefani once worked for minimum wage
Back in the day, Gwen Stefani worked low-paying jobs just like most other teenagers. She served blizzards at Dairy Queen and taught swimming lessons at the local pool.
4. She is making her return to The Voice
After intermittent stints on NBC’s hit reality singing show, The Voice, the California native will replace Adam Levine as the fourth judge in season 17. Speaking on The Talk, she revealed how thrilled she is to join the incredibly talented cast consisting of John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and her boyfriend, Blake Shelton. “It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be exciting. I mean, Blake’s my best friend, so I get to hang out with him at work,” Stefani said. “I wanted to come back so bad. I mean, the show is so fun.” Gwen Stefani last appeared on the show during season 12.
5. Stefani is the mother of three children
Although Shelton and Stefani do not have any children together, the pop singer’s three sons (Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo) from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale keep their hands full. Despite only being the honorary stepdad, Shelton tries his best to bond with her children. Recently, the couple took her sons to the Ugly Dolls premiere. “It’s a rare thing for Gwen and [me] to even get out at all,” Shelton told Extra. “We don’t really get a chance to do anything. One of the two of us are working or the kids are in school — it just never works out for us to all go out. We get to do it about four or five times a year — this is one of them.”
