Blake Shelton recently dished on what it was like to find happiness again following his difficult separation with ex-wife, Miranda Lambert. Even though Gwen Stefani and Shelton have been having a great relationship for the last three years, they didn’t realize how far their romance would go.
At that time, they were both going through a divorce. Gwen was separating with the Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale, while Blake was married to Miranda Lambert.
During an appearence on Sunday Today With Willie Geist on Sunday, June 24th, the 42-year-old said, that if he and Gwen were honest about it, it seemed more like a rebound deal than anything else.
Blake claimed they were both hanging on to each other to help cope with their respective divorces. He said it constantly “feels like it’s going to the next level.”

Shelton admitted he and Gwen, both, would be able to admit their relationship was created on a foundation of reciprocal coping. However, it’s obvious that it worked out for the best, and their respective struggle solidified the footing on which they stand in their current romance.
As you may know, Shelton and Lambert got married in May 2011 and divorced just four years later in July 2015. And Stefani, she split up from Gabin Rossdale in August 2015 after being married for thirteen years.
Gwen and Blake started dating in November of that year. During his conversation with Geist, Shelton said Gwen helped him get through that challenging time in his life.
Blake “hit rock bottom just like anybody does” when they struggle with something as serious as a divorce. And this isn’t the first time Blake has dished on this sort of thing.
Back in April, the “Cool” singer sold Ellen DeGeneres that they were considering a marriage. However, maybe it would be better to give it a couple more years.
