It’s been nearly three years since the two confirmed their relationship and Blake Shelton took some time to think about his romance with Gwen Stefani. According to the country crooner, every day that passes brings them even closer together, strengthening their bond.
In a sneak peek for the next episode of NBC’s Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist, Shelton stated: ‘When I was going through the divorce, and hit rock bottom just like anyone does when they go through something that devastating, it was a miracle that I met someone who was going through the same thing I was at the moment in time. And I think that if Gwen and I were being honest right now, I think in the back of our mind, both of us thought, this is a rebound deal because we are both coming out of a really low spot in our lives and we are kind of clinging to one another to get through this.’
He added that ‘now, here we are, going on 3 years and every day that goes by, it feels like a stronger bond between us, and it constantly feels like it is going to the next level. That is the only way I think either one of us would probably describe it, if she was sitting here.’
In the beginning of their relationship, Blake explained that falling for a The Voice co-judge was ‘not something that anybody could have seen coming, besides God, I guess, because it does not look like it would make sense.’
‘But all I can tell you is it does, it just makes perfect sense for us and where we are at in our lives. I tell people all the time that Gwen saved my life last year, she did, and I think she’d say something similar about me.’
