Gwen Stefani Hints That Blake Shelton Is Her "Forever" Man
Despite all the engagement buzz surrounding Gwen Stefani and her boyfriend Blake Shelton, don’t expect to see a diamond ring popping up on that finger anytime soon.
The 49-year-old sat down with Today’s Natalie Morales for a candid interview about her relationship with the country singer, sharing that the two are in no rush to get married.
“There is zero pressure," she said, esecially, "when there’s trauma, the way that we had trauma back in the day."
"Going through all these hard times, [you] get to a place where you find somebody that’s like your best friend, that you know you can depend on and trust and go through life — we’re just trying to be in the moment as much as we can.”
The trauma that the No Doubt frontwoman is most likely referencing is the couple's shared history of divorce. Prior to becoming an item in 2015, Shelton had split from wife Miranda Lambert and Stefani from husband Gavin Rossdale after his alleged cheating scandal. However, Stefani told Morales that it's these similarities in their past relationships that have actually brought them closer as couple.
So, close it seems, that the performer now considers Shelton her “forever.”
“He’s your forever, right?” Morales asked Stefani.
“I hope so!” she shared. “I never thought I would get this moment, and so it’s just really special.
While we couldn’t be happier for the mom of three, we can’t say that we were surprised by her response given that Shelton said almost the exact same thing last month when he admitted to ET that the “forever” lyric in the pair’s romantic duet, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” was “of course” about their relationship.
“Blake has wanted to take his time with marriage, but he is absolutely committed to Gwen,” a source told People. “They both feel they’ve found their true partner in life and plan to be together forever.”
