Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton seem to have been in love more than ever lately as the couple in Oklahoma are quarantined amid the coronavirus crisis.
As there are new rumors that these two lovebirds may soon be heading towards the altar, let's take a look back at where it all started and how Blake and Gwen's love has grown over the years. Here you will find everything you need to know about everyone's most popular pair of music!
Blake and Gwen weren't looking for love when they first connected, but that's exactly what they found.
The singers came close for the first time after they both separated from their spouses. In July 2015, 42-year-old Blake told his colleagues from The Voice that he and his second wife Miranda Lambert were getting divorced after four years of marriage. The coaches of the season - Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Gwen - were stunned by the news. Blake and Miranda had been together for ten years and were the powerhouse of country music.

Just a month after Blake's sudden breakup, 49-year-old Gwen was also experiencing heartache when she announced her separation from ex-husband rocker Gavin Rossdale. The couple were married for 13 years and had three young sons, Kingston (born 2006), Zuma (born 2008) and Apollo (born 2014).
Blake and Gwen quickly realized that they were in the same pain. She later told the New York Times that they found consolation in one another. He "literally went through exactly the same thing in exactly the same time frame," she said.
Behind the scenes, Blake and Gwen's friendship soon developed into a romance and in November 2015 they admitted to actually being a couple. Each artist sent their newfound happiness to the recording studio. Gwen's album "This Is What the Truth Feels Like" was released in March 2016 and contained a song about Blake. In "Make Me Like You", she described herself as "broken but good" before falling in love again.
Two months later, Blake released his tenth studio album "If I'm Honest", which included a hit duo with Gwen "Go Ahead and Break My Heart".
The couple continued to be musically inspired and worked on a cozy holiday duo “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” for Gwen's 2017 album of the same name. And it was clear that Blake had Gwen in mind when he recorded his eleventh studio album, Texoma Shore. The album in 2017 included a hot love song about his girlfriend "Turnin 'Me On" and a hit ode to domestic bliss "I'm Name the Dogs", in which fans talked about the couple's life and future.

In fact, it was obvious that Blake was not only getting closer to Gwen, but also her family. In March 2018, Blake raved about how great Gwen's sons and unexpected zest for life were on the Today show. Before meeting Gwen, Blake said he thought he couldn't have children. "At this point in my life, I would put it aside, 'I don't think it should be,'" he said. "And then it suddenly happens in one way or another."
In 2019, Blake and Gwen went back to the studio together to record their biggest hit so far: a romantic duet called "Nobody But You" that was featured on Blake's latest album "Fully Loaded: God's Country". In the very first verse, Blake points to his wish to spend the rest of his life with Gwen: "Don't have to leave this city to see the world. Because there's something I have to do. I don't want to look." back in thirty years and wonder who you are married to. "
"The lyrics to this song are so up to date, not just for me and Gwen, but I think for a lot of people," Blake told Nashville Lifestyles magazine at the time. "The song is not a fairy tale, but at the same time it is the most epic, earth-shattering love song that I have heard in a long time because the lyrics are so honest and simply say how it is."
Blake was right about the song's power over the fans. In April 2020, "Nobody But You" reached number 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts, and nobody was more enthusiastic than the musical couple themselves.
Blake used social media to congratulate Gwen on her first country song # 1 with the sweetest news. "Congratulations @gwenstefani on your first country song, which is number 1 on country radio !!!" he wrote. "Not bad for your first try !!!!!"
There was more to celebrate a few months later when Blake and Gwen bought their first house together, a stunning $ 13.2 million estate in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.
There is still no word on when Blake and Gwen will move into their new homes, but in the meantime, the two have isolated together at Blake's Oklahoma Ranch amid the coronavirus crisis. And with their unique mixture of chemistry and humor, they make the best of the situation!
In March, Blake announced its decision to add a quarantine mullet to provide its fans with a strange "symbol of hope" in difficult times.

It is clear that these two are so in love, so it was no surprise when the long-standing engagement rumors resurfaced in June when Us Weekly reported that Gwen Blake plans to get married after the coronavirus the pandemic as soon as possible is over.
According to Us Weekly, the singer had been working to void her marriage to ex-husband Gavin so that she and Blake could get married in the Catholic Church. But the pandemic has reportedly changed its perspective, and it now wants to tie the knot with Blake as soon as the social distance guidelines allow for a wedding.
"Gwen wants to have a ceremony and reception with her family and friends," a source told us. "She hasn't waited so long to marry the family who watches Zoom. It has made it clear to her that it is pointless to wait for the suspension because it can take years for the church court to make the decision. "
The source continued: "If you take your vows this time, it will be the first time for both of you because you have never had such a synergy between soul mate and others."
Neither Blake nor Gwen have commented on the report, but Blake has considered previous rumors that the couple were engaged or already married.
In fact, he told ET in 2019 that he "loves" the rumors.
"These rumors are great," he said. "Anyone who thinks I'm already married to Gwen, I love it. My God. Who wouldn't want to be married to Gwen Stefani?"
Oh so sweet! We firmly believe that Blake and Gwen should be, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for one of our favorite couples!
