Aw, this is SO sweet! We knew Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were head over heels for each other, but we had no idea Blake was the one who gave the pop star her killer confidence back! And wait until you hear how — these two seriously are a dream team!
Gwen Stefani, 46, opened up to Chelsea Handler, 41, on the May 18 episode of Chelsea, about the story behind her and Blake Shelton‘s, 39, duet and how “insecure” and alone she felt during a dark period in her life. But the story has a happy ending as Blake ended up being the singer’s light! In fact, it was the country singer who gave Gwen her confidence back and helped her feel secure again — in all aspects of her life!
It all started with a song, according to Gwen, who appeared on Netflix’s Chelsea with Chelsea Handler herself, and couldn’t help beaming as she discussed her “miraculous” life now that Blake is apart of it. After all, it’s Blake who made Gwen feel secure again, and how it happened is quite simple. “He had written this song and sent it to me on my phone,” Gwen began. “And he’s like ‘I wrote this song,’ I was scared to listen to it like…what if I don’t like it? And I listened to it and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I love this.'”
And what happened next is beyond adorable! Blake told Gwen to finish the song. But Gwen was nervous about it at first. “There was a time I was really insecure about writing,” the singer dished. “I went through such a drought where I was so insecure. I think when you have a really long career…you start to compete with your own self and get insecure — like, I did that…but HOW did I do that?”
But in the end, Gwen put her insecurities aside and dove headfirst into the song-writing process. And honestly, the results were amazing! “With this song, he was like…write the rest of it. And I was just like, ‘OK,'” Gwen revealed. “Instead of being like, ‘Oh, I don’t know how to write, and what if he doesn’t like it?’ I just thought about what I felt and I just sent him back a verse that was basically to him. And then we had a song! We were like, ‘Wow, we have a song together!’ and that was it. It’s weird. It’s natural.”
And we have to agree, Blake and Gwen’s relationship DOES seem very natural! We just love how they’re always supporting each other and aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. I mean, the two DID profess their love for each other when they performed their romantic duet for the first time. Aw!
How sweet are Gwen and Blake as a couple, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that they hit it off so quickly?
