Awww, this is so sweet! Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani went from friends to lovers pretty quickly after their respective divorces, and HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on the exact moment things changed.
Songwriting proved to be just the right thing to help Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani move on from their splits from Miranda Lambert and Gavin Rossdale. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned about when The Voice coaches began developing feelings for one another, and it’s too adorable for words!
“Things started heating up between Blake and Gwen when they started working on their song together,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It was actually Blake’s idea to write a song with her, and when he suggested it, Gwen was over the moon. She thought it was a great idea and they spent a lot of quality time together.”
The new couple wrote a country ballad together while they were both going through major heartbreak, but it turned out to be just what they needed. Rumors have been flying for months that sparks had been flying between these two, and recently, the romance turned into a reality — Gwens rep even confirmed the news on Nov. 4, just ahead of the CMA Awards! Later that night, the lovebirds made their public debut as a duo at an after party for the show.
Getting into this relationship was especially helpful for Gwen, who was reportedly in a really bad place at the end of her romance with Gavin. Being with Blake helped make her “feel good again,” and gave her the opportunity to have fun, which was allegedly something she’d been missing her in 13-year marriage, according to TMZ. Aww…we’re so glad things worked out for her!
The live shows of The Voice begin on Monday, Nov. 9, so we’ll definitely be on the lookout for any adorable flirty behavior between Blake and Gwen now that this relationship is out there. We’ll of course keep you posted about anything new in this hot romance!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Blake and Gwen make a cute couple? Are you excited to hear their song together?
