The couple began dating after falling in love on the set of The Voice in 2015. The two connected over having gone through tough divorces and once they began dating, wanted to take things slow. “Blake has wanted to take his time with marriage,” a source told People in November. “But he is absolutely committed to Gwen. They both feel they’ve found their true partner in life and plan to be together forever.”
And over the years, Shelton has developed quite the relationship with Stefani’s three kids whom she shares with ex-Gavin Rossdale. “For a long time, it was awkward trying to figure out what my place is,” Shelton said after two years of dating Stefani. “The best part for me, selfishly, is discovering a part of myself that I guess I never really knew was in there,” he said of his fatherly role. “It’s definitely an instinct that kind of kicks in.”
“At this point in my life, I kind of had put [having kids] as like, ‘Well, I guess that wasn’t meant to be’,” Shelton said on The Today Show in 2018. “Then all of a sudden it happens one way or another and it’s like, ‘Wow, [I] missed out on a lot.’ And so having them around — I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s so much fun.”
