Gwen Stefani has upgraded! The No Doubt alum is Mrs. Shelton now, and she’s making that abundantly clear to everyone — including husband Blake Shelton.
Gwen Stefani who? The 51-year-old No Doubt front woman outright told her new husband Blake Shelton, 45, that she would like to be called ‘Gwen Shelton’ now in an adorable exchange that’s gone viral. On Thursday, July 15, the married stars were performing together for the first time since tying the knot at the Ole Red bar when Blake — who was sitting beside his wife — said to the crowd, “We have Gwen Stefani singing in Tishomingo, Oklahoma,” which earned a big applause from the audience.
But Gwen had a quick correction for her husband. “I thought it was Gwen Shelton,” she said with a laugh, which earned an even larger roar from the attendees. After the couple’s performance, Blake finally got his wife’s new moniker right. “Goodbye Gwen Shelton,” he said as Gwen left the bar, according to E! News.
This was also a cute moment, Blake was gushing about Gwen Stefani being in tishomingo and she said, “I thought it was Gwen Shelton now”. They were both so cute! 🥰❤️ pic.twitter.com/Cl5QDUCfQ1
