Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's relationship captured hearts around world after the pair's love blossomed from mutual heartbreak and the 39-year-old country legend can't stop gushing about his new girl.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Blake gave fans an intimate insight into the time when he began falling in love with Gwen, and it's just as picture perfect as you could have hoped. Blake explained that:
"As I was making the record, other developments were happening. I was spending some time with Gwen all of a sudden, and she became my closest ally, my friend, my person in my life who had my back, and I had hers. And created this bond with somebody that I never would have thought in a million years."
A spark developed between the two developed during this special and unexpected friendship which led to the pair falling head over heels in love with each other before they knew what hit them, Blake said:
"We were starting 'The Voice' last year, and I had to sit down and go, ‘Look, by the time this thing airs, my life will have completely changed, and we need to talk about this now because it may affect what we talk about on the show.’ I just felt like there doesn’t need to be secrets. And then the same thing [happened] with Gwen. It was like, ‘Here’s what’s going on, this show ain’t gonna air until three months from now, so let’s get this talked about right now.’”
By not making an effort to hid their growing feelings for each other during filming, Blake and Gwen became one of the most shipped couples on TV before they announced they were together, Blake explained:
"That’s how we even found out what was going on and we just started to develop a friendship after that. And it took awhile, because it’s chaos. But just over time, seeing each other a lot at work, it just kind of developed into that."
Screw the haters who imply this is anything other than real!
