Blake, 47, and Gwen, 52, began dating in 2015 after meeting on the set of the NBC reality show The Voice.

Both were fresh out of lengthy failed marriages.

After a five-year relationship, the celebrity couple got engaged in 2020.

The Hollaback Girl singer announced their engagement on social media as she flashed her blinged-out hand while sharing a kiss with her hubby.

Shelton also shared the same picture on his Instagram, writing, “Hey Gwen, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!”

Less than a year later, on July 3, 2021, the couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Blake’s Oklahoma ranch.

The two seem to have now found their forever loves, after leaving a trail of drama from past relationships behind them.

Blake was married twice before his current union with Gwen.

In 2003, he married his high school sweetheart, Kaynette Williams, 51. The two met as teenagers in their hometown of Ada, Oklahoma.

The two shared their “I do’s” at a small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

“I knew Kaynette was the one,” Blake previously told Country Weekly, before confessing he couldn’t explain why. “I can’t say it’s because we get along or because of the way she looks. It’s just something I feel – you know what I mean? It’s nothing more than just knowing you’re right.”

However, just three years later, Blake and Kaynette would divorce, after his affair with singer Miranda Lambert was exposed.

Kaynette, who once worked as Blake’s tour manager, moved to Kansas and became a math teacher.

She is now married to rodeo champion Cody Joe Scheck.

BLAKE AND MIRANDA LAMBERT

Blake was still married to his first wife when he recorded a duet with fellow country star Miranda Lambert.

She was engaged at the time to country singer Jeff Allen McManus, but the chemistry between her and Blake was instant.

“I knew he was married,” Miranda, 40, confessed in 2011. “I knew better. Like, this is off-limits.

“I didn’t know what to do with it. It was, like, my first duet with some other country star, and I didn’t know if it was just initial butterflies because of that. I don’t know what it was. It was just this draw to each other.”

“I’ve never had that kind of experience with anybody,” Blake revealed during an episode of VH1’s Behind the Music. “I was a married guy, you know? Standing up there and singing with somebody and going, ‘Man, this shouldn’t be happening.'”

But it did, and the two married in May 2011 in Boerne, Texas.

However, it was a rocky relationship, with each facing accusations of infidelity.

By 2015, the two divorced, and Blake moved on with Gwen.

Gwen has found love in the music world multiple times – even with her own bandmates.

The lead singer previously dated her No Doubt bandmate, Tony Kanal, from 1987 to 1994.

She has remained close with the now 53-year-old and recently reunited with him, guitarist Tom Dumont, and drummer Adrian Young to perform at Coachella.

In the wake of the reunion news, Gwen revealed she had to explain her romance with Tony to her youngest son, Apollo.

“I had to literally lay in bed with Apollo and he’s like, ‘But mom, what is Coachella? Everyone’s saying it. What is this? It sounds like it’s a big deal,'” she told People.

“So we had to watch the Don’t Speak video, and he’s like, ‘But wait, which one was your boyfriend?’

“It was so weird and so funny. I literally had to tell him each band member.”

Gwen has three sons – Kingston, 17; Zuma, 15; and Apollo, 10 – with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.

She married the rock band Bush’s lead singer in 2002, however, they split in 2015 amid rumors that Gavin had been cheating on Gwen with their nanny, Mindy Mann.

While Gavin has kept quiet about their divorce, he recently opened up about feeling “shameful” on the most recent episode of the Amy & TJ podcast.

“I never thought I’d ever get divorced. So there’s a simple shame in my life,” he said.

“I feel bad for my kids, that’s it,” Gavin further explained.

“I wish I could have found a way to not have that in their lives. It wasn’t fun for me to come from a broken home… It can be quite debilitating for kids… the overriding things is you don’t want to let your kids down.”

“The biggest thing would be when you see the kids that sometimes there’s a loss. It’d be nice if there was more of a connection with the person who made them with me,” he added.
