They are both singers, but seemingly from opposite worlds. Gwen Stefani is a former '90s pop star made famous for her washboard abs and funky style. Blake Shelton is a country star who loves his truck and living in, well, the country. And yet, Gwen and Blake are basically the cutest couple since Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes.
So when did the "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." singer meet her eventual husband? When did they get engaged, and married? And what is their relationship status today? The full details are ahead.
2014: Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton meet as judges on 'The Voice.'

Meanwhile, Blake was married twice before meeting Gwen — he said "I do" to Kaynette Williams in 2003, and divorced her in 2006. Then, the "God's Country" crooner was betrothed to Miranda Lambert from 2011–2015.
It turns out that their mutual heartache actually bonded Gwen and Blake. Although they were both with other people when Gwen joined The Voice in 2014, those relationships were on the rocks.
“Gwen saved my life," Blake confessed previously. "Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorce.”

“God just put us together. It was one of those miracle situations where I didn’t see it coming,” she told Drew Barrymore. “I was like, ‘I’m gonna wake up every day, I’m gonna have a coffee, I’m gonna take care of my kids, and then I’m gonna go to bed.’ Like I’m never gonna kiss anyone. I thought my life was over and then Blake Shelton’s like, ‘Hey. I’m Blake Shelton.’”
