- Gwen Stefani opened up about meeting husband Blake Shelton when they were both judges on “The Voice.”
- “God just put us together. It was one of those miracle situations,” Stefani told Drew Barrymore.
- The “Sweet Escape” singer also revealed that she thought her life was “over” before meeting Shelton.
Gwen Stefani revealed that she thought her life was “over” before she met now-husband Blake Shelton while the two were starring on “The Voice.”
During an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show” Wednesday, Stefani said she felt divine intervention played a role at the beginning of her relationship with Shelton.
“God just put us together. It was one of those miracle situations where I didn’t see it coming,” the “Rich Girl” singer told host Barrymore.
“I was like, ‘I’m gonna wake up every day, I’m gonna have a coffee, I’m gonna take care of my kids and then I’m gonna go to bed.’ Like I’m never gonna kiss anyone,” Stefani continued. “I thought my life was over and then Blake Shelton’s like, ‘Hey. I’m Blake Shelton.’”
Stefani also gushed about the similarities and differences between her and Shelton.
“Finding a best friend, someone that is like on the same plane when it comes to morals, or just the way you look at life, that’s the dream,” she said.
“Having someone that, we think the same about things yet we’re so different, like he’s watching football and doing his stuff that he does and I’m like putting makeup on,” the singer added.
Ultimately, Stefani said, she and Shelton are “so different” but “the same on so many levels.”
The former No Doubt frontwoman and Shelton began dating in 2015, shortly after filing for divorce from their respective long-term partners Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert. Stefani and Shelton became engaged in October 2020 and tied the knot in July 2021.
