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 spouses in 2015. 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 recently made her return to The Voice.
After intermittent stints on NBC’s hit reality singing show, The Voice, the California native has replaced Adam Levine as the fourth judge in season 17. 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. The couple took her sons to the UglyDolls 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.”

6. Gwen calls Blake her best friend.
“I feel as if I spent the last four years healing — you know, trying to build my life again,” Stefani shared with SHAPE. “Having a best friend like Blake to help me do that has been one of the greatest gifts.”

7. She splits her time between Los Angeles and Blake’s ranch in Oklahoma.
“And spending time in the middle of America [on Blake’s ranch] — that’s something I didn’t expect. The way we live at the ranch is really simple. There are watermelons that Blake planted and all my wildflowers. It’s a nice contrast to L.A., although I do keep 20 chickens in the backyard here at home too,” the star confessed to SHAPE about where she is now.
Wishing these two lovebirds many years of happiness together!
