Blake Shelton is enjoying a blissful married life!
The country music icon, who tied the knot to Pop Queen Gwen Stefani in 2021, recently gushed about his adoration for the beautiful songstress and her three children. The “God’s Country” singer may not be biologically linked to his wife’s sons, but the Oklahoma native confessed he would move mountains for his newfound family.
Blake Shelton Says His Love For Gwen Stefani And Her Children Overweighs His Career
When it comes to the world’s most prominent musicians, Shelton’s name can be found in the top spot. The 46-year-old singer has achieved numerous accolades for his exceptional talent and charming personality. Whether on or off the stage, the “Happy Anywhere” artist has become a household name for his music and accomplishments as a coach on NBC’s “The Voice.”
Given his outstanding successes, one would think the Billboard chart-topper’s priorities involved attaining new heights. However, the TV personality cared more about his family than receiving accolades. While talking to ET, the “Hillbilly Bone” singer revealed that he currently lived on cloud 9 with his adorable family and would not change this phase of his life.
“Look, I love music, and I love The Voice. I love all the cool things I get to do with my job,” the Oklahoma native confessed, “but those things all take a backseat now to Gwen and the kids, and it’s just a new phase of my life.” Although the boys were a product of Stefani’s relationship with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, Shelton’s passionate words reflected his pride as a stepdad.

Thanks to his newfound family, the People’s Choice Award winner no longer cared about fighting for the top spot in the ever-growing music industry. Instead, the 46-year-old enjoyed the freedom of releasing singles. The “Some Beach” singer could also savor this flexibility by the grace of his record label, which the musician credited for constantly supporting his unprecedented ideas.
According to the Ole Red franchise founder, the company allowed him to express his creativity without restrictions. This privilege gave birth to unique projects such as shooting a 90s country video for his latest song, “No Body.” The Grand Ole Opry inductee’s new track took fans down memory lane to the Country music icon’s founding years in the industry with its emotional lyrics and throwback music video.
When the entertainer was an aspiring singer from Nashville, his wife started making a name for herself with No Doubt, a California band that topped charts with their catchy songs. Looking back, Shelton confessed to being attracted to the “Rich Girl” singer. However, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame inductee only recognized the blonde beauty because of an orange. The entertainer said:
“My entire life of knowing who Gwen Stefani even was was ‘Is that the girl that holds the orange up in the video? Oh my god, she’s so hot, but why is she obsessed with this freaking orange, you know?'”

Now, the “Kiss My Country Ass” singer knows that the orange symbolizes his wife’s home as an Orange County native. The AMA winner may be head over heels for the L.A.M.B. founder, but his passion for music remained. Shelton admitted that he planned on pursuing his craft for as long as fans enjoyed his talents, noting that only the audience could fire him. Until that day, the 46-year-old wished to keep his music alive.
The ‘Nobody But You’ Collaborators Marked Their First Wedding Anniversary With Touching Tributes
Last month, The Blast reported that Shelton and Stefani’s romance continued to blaze intensely as the lovebirds celebrated their first wedding anniversary with emotional posts. For the grand occasion, the Country music star shared a picture from the couple’s intimate wedding and gushed about his partner in an accompanying caption.
In his message, Shelton thanked his wife for vowing to spend the rest of her life with him and described their first year together as the best period of his existence. Meanwhile, Stefani shared a video montage of the couple’s wedding and captioned it, “1 year down, forever to go @blakeshelton.”
