Gwen Stefani has opened up in the past about how she leaned on Blake Shelton after her split from Gavin Rossdale, but now Blake Shelton has revealed the impact Stefani had on him as well.
“I tell people all the time, ‘Gwen saved my life last year,'” Shelton said in an interview with CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown. “She did, and I think she would probably tell you something similar about me.”
Fans of Stefani and Shelton immediately embraced the couple when they made their relationship official. However, many were left confused about what the country singer and the rock star had in common.
“It’s not something that anybody could have seen coming, besides God, I guess. It doesn’t look like it makes sense, you know? But all I can tell you is, it does, it just makes the most perfect sense for us and where we’re at in our lives.”
Stefani and Shelton’s relationship turned romantic last fall. Shelton split from Miranda Lambert last summer.
Shelton even acknowledges that their relationship’s sudden spark took him by surprise.
“Ever coming into [her] second season [working on] The Voice, I didn’t even really know her that well,” Shelton said. “All of a sudden, this thing just happened because of some things we were going through and it saved my life, period.”
