Gwen Stefani Says She Thought Her 'Life Was Over' Before Meeting Blake Shelton
"We're so the same on so many levels," she said.
“God just put us together; it was one of those miracle situations where I didn’t see it coming,” Stefani said during the interview, according to Access.
She continued, “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’m never gonna'–you know what I mean? I thought my life was over."
However, things took a turn when Shelton entered her life. “And then Blake Shelton’s like, ‘Hey! I’m Blake Shelton!’” Stefani said.
Stefani and Shelton first met when Stefani joined as a Coach on The Voice in 2014. Even thought Stefani didn’t know Shelton existed before she came on the show, she was drawn to his talent. The two officially tied the knot in summer 2021.
Stefani told Barrymore that she and Shelton are a match made in heaven. “Finding a best friend and someone who is on the same plane when it comes to morals or the way you look at life, that’s the dream," she said. "Just having someone who's like, we think the same about things."
She added, “We’re so different, like he’s watching football and doing his stuff that he does, and I’m putting makeup on. We are so different, yet we’re so the same on so many levels."
