Blake Shelton and his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, have been dating for more than a year now. And, they’re still going strong.
In fact, they’ve been flaunting their budding romance each week on season 12 of “The Voice.”
But, oddly enough, Gwen says she originally thought it would be “weird” to reunite with her beau on the show that originally brought them together.
“I feel like when we were coming back this season, I was a little nervous,” Gwen told “Entertainment Tonight” on the red carpet for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on March 11. “I was like, ‘This is going to be weird!’ But, you know, the show is so real. All it is is us just being there and being us. So, it’s been really fun.”
Fun indeed! Since the new season’s launch, Blake and Gwen have already declared their love for each other and call each other affectionate names like “babe.”
“Obviously like anytime I can be around Blake is a blessing,” Gwen added.
Although Gwen appreciates her country crooner’s company, he wasn’t her “plus one” for the awards show. Instead, she brought sons — Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 3 — as her dates.
“It was kind of last minute,” Gwen explained, “so that makes it even more exciting.”
As for Blake, he was busy performing in San Diego as part of his Doing It To Country Songs tour. The next stops on his tour include Evansville, Indiana on March 16, and Chicago on March 17. Fans who wish to see both Gwen and Blake can tune into “The Voice” Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.
