The dynamic duo has been making headlines for being some of the world’s biggest names in the music industry, but their marriage took the world by storm.
As shared by PEOPLE, the country music star recently sat down with Lon Helton, Country Countdown USA host, at this year’s national gathering of broadcasters, a.k.a the Country Radio Seminar.
Blake Shelton Reveals Why Gwen Stefani Thought Their Relationship Wouldn’t Last
When it comes to legendary country music singers, Shelton is at the top of the list as the 45-year-old has achieved numerous awards for his chart-topping songs.
In addition to his outstanding musical career, the artist has established himself as a mentor to the younger generation for 21 seasons on the competitive hit show “The Voice.”
However, nothing lasts forever, especially in the ever-changing entertainment industry, and the Oklahoma native knows that his time in the limelight won’t last forever.
Surprisingly, the 9-time Grammy Award nominee wasn’t worried for the future because he believed there were more important things than his music career, such as his relationship with Stefani and her children Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
The Country star got candid about his career and marital life with Helton at the Country Radio Seminar, where the “Ol’ Red” singer was the event’s highlight.
The chart-topper discussed various topics before an attentive crowd of several industry insiders. Still, the one topic that had the audience at the edge of their seats was Shelton’s love life.
The “God’s Country” artist revealed that for the last 4 to 5 years, he has been waiting for a time in his career when things needed to be stripped away for family time. In his words:
“You gotta get some life in there, and by marrying Gwen, I’ve married into a family. She’s got three boys … and all of a sudden you go, there’s other stuff.”

These kinds of stuff included embracing his life as a stepfather to his wife’s three sons, who were born during her marriage to ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
At the start of the entertainment sweethearts relationship, the “Rich Girl” songstress was concerned their relationship wouldn’t last because of her children.
Regarding her fear about whether the country star would want her sons in his life, the “Nobody But You” musician said:
“I think Gwen thought when we first started seeing each other that it was just gonna be a moment in time because of that.”
However, the 10-time Country Music Association Awards winner couldn’t help but fall for his step-sons, just as how his father married his mother, who already had a baby.
Recalling this unique part of his childhood, Shelton explained that his father raised his late brother Richie without question. This example of unconditional love made it easier to accept Stefani’s sons. In his words:
“My dad did it. My dad raised me. I could do this. I didn’t know what I was signing up for, but I was all about signing up for it. And every day, I’ve fallen in love with the boys as much as I do with Gwen.”
