Blake Shelton Is Excited For The New Phase Of His Life With Gwen Stefani And Their Kids
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Blake Shelton revealed that he’s excited for the next phase of his life. Since he’s already married and has children, his family has become his number one priority, and his music only comes second now.
“Look, I love music, and I love The Voice. I love all the cool things I get to do with my job, but those things all take a backseat now to Gwen and the kids, and it’s just a new phase of my life,” he said.
Blake Shelton Is Thrilled That He’s Allowed To Make Music Only When He Wants To
Shelton, who has been in the music industry for decades, admitted that he’s lucky enough to be allowed to release tracks whenever he wants to. And he’s never forced to do anything that he doesn’t like career-wise.
“I’m having fun putting out songs when I feel like it, and luckily the record label allows me to do that. They always support it when I do it, and my stupid ideas of doing a '90s country video -- they're always on board, and because of that, we have a 'God's Country' once in a while or a 'Happy Anywhere.’ I’ll just go, ‘I want to do this. Can you help me?’ And they’ll jump on board, and we've had some big records that way. Hopefully, this will be another one,” he said.
Shelton also had a hilarious response after he was asked what he would’ve said had he known that he and Stefani would one day end up together.
“I would have probably said, 'Are you talking about that girl that holds up the orange in her video?' I never understood until now that she's from Orange County. My entire life of knowing who Gwen Stefani even was, ‘Is that the girl that holds the orange up in the video? Oh my god, she's so hot, but why is she obsessed with this freaking orange, you know?’” he said.
Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani Sparked Split Rumors Last Year
Shelton and Stefani have only been married for a year and one month. They tied the knot in Oklahoma during the pandemic, so the couple did not invite a lot of guests to their big day.
Shortly after their wedding, rumors swirled that the honeymoon phase quickly became over for Shelton and Stefani. OK! Magazine alleged that the couple has been butting heads over almost everything, including whom they were going to support during the previous election.
“They’ve always tried hard to please each other, especially Blake because Gwen’s happiest when she gets her way. But he’s been asserting himself more since they got married, and it hasn’t been sitting well with Gwen,” a source claimed.
However, the country singer’s recent revelation about his married life and his priorities proved that the rumors were not true after all.
