Blake Shelton is celebrating his 42nd birthday, and his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, is taking the opportunity to show her love on Instagram. Over the weekend, Stefani posted two pics of the couple, and they look happier than ever.
Hollywood Life is reporting that Shelton and Stefani seem to be inseparable, so it makes sense that they would spend his birthday weekend together. One of the pics is a close-up of the singers as they smile for the camera, and she drew a heart around their faces to express her love.
In the second, Shelton is by himself and smiling, with Stefani adding the caption, “B day weekend has begun!! @blakeshelton.”
If you go through their social media posts, Stefani and Shelton always seem to enjoy their time together – whether they are alone or hanging out with her three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
In addition to celebrating Shelton’s birthday, there was probably a Father’s Day celebration over the weekend, too. Shelton doesn’t have any kids of his own, but he reportedly gets along so well with Stefani’s boys that he has become a father figure in their lives and they are planning on giving him gifts. Gwen’s dad was in attendance for the festivities and she shared a snap of her boyfriend adorably planting a kiss on his rumored future father-in-law.
Fans will have to wait and see if there will be a wedding or more kids in the future for the couple, but in the meantime, Stefani is working hard while she prepares for her new Las Vegas show.
Throughout her 30-year career, Stefani has written and performed some of the biggest hits in pop music, and her accomplishments continue to surprise Shelton. This past week, while rehearsing for her I’m Just A Girl show at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood, the setlist left Shelton in awe.
“Sitting here watching @gwenstefani rehearsals it continues to shock me the amount of GIANT hits this girl has written,” he wrote on Twitter. “I highly recommend y’all catch her Vegas show if you can get tickets!!!”
Stefani’s Las Vegas residency will consist of 25 shows and begins on June 27th.
A few hours after Shelton’s tweet, Stefani got a chance to see it, and she responded, “OMG just seeing this now!! I love you! #Bestboyfriendever #favoriteperson gx.”
Stefani admitted last week that she is a little freaked out about her upcoming show, which is a career retrospective. She says she is still in “panic mode” at rehearsals, and even though it feels like it isn’t going to happen, it will. And one day, she will look back on it and say “That was a huge chapter in my life.”
The 48-year-old added that she is honored and excited, and she believes it is the kind of show she wouldn’t have been able to do until this point in her life because the show is nostalgic and brings people on a long journey through her music.
“It’s really just that same journey again, but in a new Vegas-y way,” concluded Stefani.
Since they started dating almost 3 years ago, the couple has been hounded by wedding rumors. The latest claim that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are planning a late summer wedding on his Oklahoma ranch.
