The latest series of The Voice is under way. Two of the judges, Gwen Stefani and Black Shelton, are actually married. The two have had previous marriages which has been crucial to their relationship, according to the pair.

“Gwen saved my life. Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician?” Shelton told Billboard back in 2016, “You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorces.”

Stefani and Shelton were married on July 23, 2021. While Stefani may have the bigger name outside of the US, Shelton is a famous country singer who holds the record for the number of consecutive number 1 singles in the country chart with an almighty 17.

Featuring on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’, Stefani went into some more detail of the early days of the relationship between the two.

“That was my first public date with Blake Shelton, actually,” she revealed to Clarkson. “It was the Oscars Vanity Fair party. I think I played at the party and then we went out that night.”

She continued, “He never does red carpets, now that I know him...That always melts me when I see it because it’s, like, such a moment for me. A good one.”

“I’m gonna be brutally honest. When I first came on The Voice [in 2014], I didn’t know that Blake even existed really in the world,” she told NBC Insider back in September.
