Love at first sight? In a new interview, Gwen Stefani recalls the moment she knew that she and Blake Shelton shared a special connection with one another, which she calls a ‘gift.’
Gwen Stefani, 46, is once again opening up about her romance with Blake Shelton, 40. In fact, The Voice co-judge knows exactly when it became clear to her that she and Blake were going to very good friends, if not more.
It was July 7, according to Gwen, who gladly shared with Glamour magazine the exact moment she felt a supernatural pull towards Blake. In the interview, Gwen recalls it like it was yesterday, a vivid memory of a small piece in time that changed her life forever.
“There I was with my big secret, right?” Gwen shares, referring to her divorce from husband Gavin Rossdale, 50, which had yet to become headline news at the time. “And that’s when Blake was like, ‘Everybody, before we go out there, I want to let everyone know that by the time this airs, I will be divorced.” Wow.
So, not only is that how Blake announced his divorce from Miranda Lambert, 32, to his The Voice family, but also the moment Gwen knew that they shared something deep and painful that only the two of them could understand at that moment.
Gwen was definitely shocked, but she also admits that she felt “exposed somehow” by the moment, as if Blake were announcing her divorce, too. “But it was like being handed this gift of a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time.”
Although Gwen stayed mum on the relationship itself throughout most of the rest of the interview, she did admit that she doesn’t feel the need to be super discreet with Blake. “It’s like, what’s there to hide?”
