Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton tied the knot over the weekend. The couple exchanged vows at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch, consistent with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King. Stefani on Monday shared photos of the ceremony on Instagram. “July 3rd, 2021 dreams do come true !!!,” the singer wrote. The pair, who got engaged in 2020 but had to place off their wedding a couple of times thanks to the pandemic, applied for a wedding license in Oklahoma last week. The couple met in 2015, once they were each newly divorced and coaches on “The Voice.” Shelton told King in 2020 that although they appeared like opposites, “those are just little details.” “And what matters to me is simply the person that she is on the within and Gwen features a way of watching life during a way that I even have never experienced in anybody — her point of view.
She always says she doesn’t understand what I mean, but she features a way of watching an individual’s situation from every angle and she’s the foremost understanding, kind-hearted person I’ve ever met,” Shelton said. “I learn something from her every day.” Stefani told CBS “Sunday Morning” in 2016 that she bonded with Shelton while they two were both browsing divorces. Stefani split from her husband, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, with whom she shares three children, that year while Shelton and country singer Miranda Lambert divorced a year earlier. “In all of this craziness that happened, like unexpected horrible-ness, I found a lover that was browsing literally the precise same thing as me,” Stefani told Lee Cowan. “And that’s a miracle, you know? And it just saved me such a lot, and that I feel so grateful for that.” Stefani and Shelton sat two chairs apart on “The Voice.” She said that within the studio, her collaborators had noticed a change in mood — and therefore the rest is history. She wrote the song “Make Me Like You” in 2016 about their burgeoning relationship. Since then, Stefani and Shelton have recorded and performed songs together, including Shelton’s Grammy-nominated “Nobody But You.”
