Blake Shelton Offers Sweet Birthday Tribute to His Wife, Gwen Stefani

Blake Shelton is offering a sweet tribute to his wife, Gwen Stefani, in honor of her 54th birthday. The Grand Ole Opry member shared a photo on social media of him with Stefani, celebrating the rocker’s special day.

“Happy Birthday to my favorite all time person ever born in any time period in the history of mankind!!!!!” Shelton writes. “I love you [Gwen Stefani]!!!!!!!!!!”

Shelton and Stefani, who met while both on The Voice together, have been very vocal about their love for each other for years, after quietly beginning to date in 2015.

“I wish everybody could have a chance to meet and talk to Gwen Stefani at some point in their life because you’ll just be a better person for it, is the only way I know to say it,” Shelton boasted to People. “She’s just a magical person to be around. She really is one of a kind.”

Stefani also praised Shelton, admitting that she never expected to fall in love with a country music superstar.

“I didn’t see any of this coming with Blake,” Stefani told People. “This was just a big old ‘What?’ It was an amazing gift to experience love like that for the first time.”

“He’s changed my life … when I [started dating] Blake, that’s when I felt home, like, ‘Oh, this is where I’m supposed to be, with this guy,” she added.

Stefani has also said she has no doubt that it was God who orchestrated her relationship with Shelton.

“God put us together. It was one of those miracle situations where I didn’t see it coming,” Stefani shared on The Drew Barrymore Show (via People). “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. I’m never gonna kiss anyone.’ I thought my life was over and then Blake Shelton’s like, ‘Hey. I’m Blake Shelton.’

Shelton is watching The Voice this season for the first time as a fan, after saying goodbye to the show he had been on for 23 seasons.

“I think it’s been the most important chapter of my life,” Shelton told Extra. “If I look back at everything, all the way back to being a kid back in Oklahoma, I think so many things happened during this portion of my life since signing on to this show, and what it did for my personal life, what it did for my career, new friends I’ve made. It’s just been a once-in-a-lifetime thing.

“I’ve had a lot of friends who have been very successful in this business, who told me early on when The Voice took off, it’s like, ‘This’ll never happen again, just so you know. Very few times does a show become this big, and you get to take this ride,’” he continued. “And now looking back after 12 years, I can see what they mean… It’s like hitting the lottery getting to be a part of something this special.”
