When Blake Shelton looks back at his time as a coach on The Voice, he has countless memories with his fiancée Gwen Stefani. Best known as the most successful coach on the NBC singing competition series, the country music star has also earned a reputation for being a jokester. But when he was asked on Monday’s Voice special Road to Lives - 10th Anniversary Edition what the best part of being on the show has been, Blake put all quips aside and shared how grateful he is that the opportunity led him to Gwen.
"That's a no-brainer, right? I met my fiancée here," he said. "It's hard to resist Gwen Stefani. You know, here's this iconic rock star coming to be a coach on The Voice in a black minivan. That was cool to me."
While Blake admitted that he never imagined he’d one day end up dating and getting engaged to Gwen, fans think it’s a match made in heaven. After watching Blake open up about his love for the “Hollaback Girl” singer, many took to The Voice’s Instagram comments section to celebrate the duo.
“They’re the sweetest. What a great love story. ❤️❤️❤️,” one person wrote. “Awww,” another added. “They make such a cool couple, both are adorable,” a different fan said. “Love seeing Blake and Gwen on The Voice. 😍,” a follower commented.
Blake has been a part of The Voice since it first premiered in 2011. In 2014, the No Doubt leading lady made her debut as a coach. Eventually, sparks flew between the two and the rest is history. Gwen took home the win last season, and it sounds like Blake enjoyed having her as his opponent.
"I love it when she's here. She brings a very complicated element of competition for me in particular. But I love that. I love the challenge,” he said. “Just knowing that she's there, and she has my back, is pretty cool."
