Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton seem to love to share a stage. Music has always been a central part of the duo’s romance; after all, they met on the set of “The Voice” in 2014. Their friendship slowly turned into something more after both of them went through divorces around the same time, and after five years of dating, they got engaged in October 2020 and tied the knot in July 2021.

Over the course of their relationship, they’ve also frequently spoken out about their love. In 2023, the pair both honored each other as they each received their own stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In November 2022, Stefani called Shelton her “best friend” in an interview on “The Drew Barrymore Show.” “Finding a best friend, someone that is on the same plane when it comes to morals, or just the way you look at life, that’s the dream,” she said. “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 putting makeup on. We’re so different, yet we’re so the same on so many levels.”

The following month, Shelton echoed his wife in an interview with People. “To me, she’s my best friend and everything that I need and lean on,” he said.
