She gained prominence in the late 90s to early 2000s and was dubbed “the Queen of Confessional Pop” by Rolling Stone.
Over the years, Stefani has had her fair share of romance in the celebrity world, until she met her present partner, Blake Shelton in 2015.
Nevertheless, she always carried around a bit of important relationship advice she learned from home, and that may be the driving force behind her present and beautiful relationship with Shelton.
Read below for more details.
A Lesson Well Learned
Starting a relationship and remaining in one are two completely different things, as the latter takes a lot from the parties involved.
Sometimes, being in a relationship may not be the answer to a question that a person has asked for many years, and other times, it may be. Either way, relationships take dedication.
According to Stefani, her parents, who have been married for about 49 years, simply told her that it is “what an individual gives in a relationship that he or she receives.”
These kind and wise words became the cornerstone on which Stefani built her romantic relationships.
Stefani’s Past Love Story
Before meeting co-country singer, Shelton, the “Hollaback Girl” singer was romantically linked to a number of men in and out of the music industry.
Her first romance was with her colleague from “No Doubt” named Tony Kanal. The pair had a strong relationship that lasted for about six years until they broke up in 1994.
After this, the 51-year-old started dating Gavin Rossdale. They eventually got married in 2002 and had three kids, but Stefani filed for divorce in 2015, citing irreconcilable differences.
Romance With Blake Shelton
Shortly after her divorce was finalized with Rossdale, Stefani met ”The Voice” judge, Blake Shelton, during her time as a judge on the show.
They were spotted in several places together until they finally announced that they were in a relationship.
At that time, Stefani’s divorce was finalized and Shelton had just come out of his marriage with country musician, Miranda Lambert.
Fast forward to late 2020, the pair announced their engagement on Instagram, with a photo of Stefani showing off her huge diamond rock.
What The Future Holds For This Relationship
Stefani and Shelton’s love story has taught a lot of people that sometimes, the wait may be long, but it’s worth it in the end.
No one knows what will eventually happen between the couple, but presently, they are at their best and living every day like it’s a new day.
No doubt, Stefani is putting her parents’ advice to use, and that’s why she cannot wait to be married to her lover.
