Why Blake Shelton Wishes Everyone Could Meet Gwen Stefani

The married twosome will both appear as Coaches on The Voice Season 22.

The Voice Coach Blake Shelton recently took an opportunity to gush about his wife (and returning Coach herself) Gwen Stefani. The duo tied the knot back in July 2021, and in a recent interview with People, Shelton opened up about just how incredible his spouse is. 

"People ask me all the time, 'What's the greatest thing that has happened for you since you've been on The Voice?' That's a no-brainer, right? I met my [wife] here," gushed Shelton. "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."

Stefani first made her Voice coaching debut in Season 7. She went on to coach in Seasons 9, 12, 17, and 19. And now, she's back for Season 22. 

"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 told People. "She's just a magical person to be around. She really is one of a kind and I ... That's another one of those things. How could you even dream that? You know? And it happened." 

If you’re wondering how these two stay busy in their free time, Shelton revealed that he and Stefani don’t mind getting their hands dirty in their garden. "Gwen is absolutely into it," he said. "It's flower planting time. And Gwen doesn't settle for these little areas around the sidewalk. We're talking about fields, acres of flowers. So I have my work cut out for me."

We can't wait to watch Shelton and Stefani on The Voice when Season 22 returns to NBC this fall.
