Stefani – who started dating the country crooner in 2015 – won season 19 in 2020 with the contestant Carter Rubin. Throughout the “Rich Girl” artist’s tenure on the Voicefans got a glimpse of her budding relationship with Shelton, whom she married in July 2021.
“I haven’t talked about it yet because it was such a shock and I wanted to come back so badly. I mean, the show is so much fun,” the fashion designer revealed in a June 2019 episode of The speech. “It’s going to be fun and exciting. Blake is my best friend, so I can hang out with him at work. Yeah, that’s gonna be awesome.
Further details on this fall’s Season 22 – including the fourth coach to complete Stefani, Shelton and the 43-year-old Ohio native’s team – have yet to be announced. Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande joined Shelton and Legend as coaches for Season 21. The 28-year-old REM Beauty founder took over the role of Nick Jonas.
Season 22 will also be the first time Stefani and the Oklahoma native will compete for the Voice trophy since their nuptials last year.
“I think if Gwen and I were honest right now talking about this, I think in the back of our minds we both thought it was a rebound deal because we’re all dating both from a pretty low point in our lives and we kind of cling on to get through that,” Shelton recalled of their romance during a June 2018 episode of Sunday today with Willie Geist. “But now here we are, three years later, and each passing day feels like a stronger bond between the two of us, and it constantly feels like it’s taking it to the next level. That’s how I think one of us would probably describe it if she was sitting here.
