Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been dating since 2015, after meeting on the set of the show The Voice as coaches. The pair developed a close relationship after they split from their respective partners.

Gwen divorced from her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale in 2016, after being married since 2002. The pair have three children together; Kingston Rossdale, Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale, and Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale.

Blake has wanted to take his time with marriage, but he is absolutely committed to Gwen. They both feel they’ve found their true partner in life and plan to be together forever."

They're currently working on season 19 of The Voice, which will include new safety measures and go without a studio audience due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

It's not yet known when and how the couple will tie the knot, but we're sure they'll have a great time planning ahead for the big day!
