Gwen Stefani turned the big 4-9 this week, and Blake Shelton posted such a sweet birthday wish to her on Instagram, it will make you cry. After three years together, the couple still appears to be in the honeymoon stage.
“Somehow it feels more like MY birthday every day.. Happy Birthday @gwenstefani!!!” he captioned the pic of Stefani. “I love you!!!” In response, she wrote, “I love u @blakeshelton can’t believe I got u #thankuGOD gx.”
Last week, Stefani posted a clip of Shelton serenading her with a song from his newest album, Texoma Shore. The retro-looking Instagram video showed Shelton singing an acoustic version of his son Turnin’ Me On, which he wrote about Stefani.
“Turnin’ me on like it’s her job / Sometimes I think she must get off on / Turnin’ me on, turnin’ me on,” Shelton sang as Stefani lovingly looked at him. During the song, Stefani turns the camera back on herself and smiles.
Both musicians have gotten inspiration from their relationship when it comes to their songwriting. And, fans knew right away when they heard Turnin’ Me On that it was all about Stefani. Shelton co-wrote the song with Jessi Alexander and Josh Osborne, and it recalls Shelton’s memories of the time he was “messing around” with Stefani. He even mentions her “Revlon red” lips.
Stefani has also given Shelton some shoutouts in her music, including the 2016 song Make Me Like You.
Shelton also wrote the song I’ll Name the Dogs with Stefani on his mind. But, even though that tune is about a couple deciding to get married and start their lives together, Shelton and Stefani have not yet announced any wedding plans of their own.
Both Stefani and Shelton’s social media posts are fueling rumors that a wedding is just around the corner. Insiders say that Stefani’s kids — Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4 — completely approve of their mom’s relationship with Shelton, and they will play a big part in the wedding ceremony.
According to Life & Style, their source claims that Stefani would choose her boys (who she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale) to be the ring bearers. The insider added that the kids adore Shelton, and they are excited about starting the next chapter in their lives.
Shelton and Stefani may not have announced an engagement yet, but he has admitted to thinking about marrying Stefani.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani met as coaches on The Voice just after they both went through high-profile divorces. An insider says that the couple supported each other through a difficult time, and now they are incredibly happy together.
