One of the most public couples of the moment is that of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. The coaches of The Voice got together in 2015 and have been sharing their relationship with the media ever since.
While Shelton sticks to supporting his girlfriend with his profile image (the cover of her brand new Christmas album), Stefani’s Instagram page is basically a love letter to her beau. Here’s a look back at the photo documentation of their nearly two years together.
The news that Stefani and Shelton were dating was confirmed in November 2015, while the two worked side by side on The Voice Season 9. This image of them with fellow coach Pharrell Williams was posted right around this time, as the news spread that the two recent divorcees were a couple.
In March 2016, Stefani and Shelton’s relationship was in full swing. The couple attended the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party together for their first-ever red carpet and were photographed by professional Mark Seliger.
A tree of love
Though Stefani wasn’t a coach on The Voice Season 10, she still made an appearance. The singer showed up to sing alongside Shelton on their duo “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.”
She teased the performance beforehand with this sweet pic of him kissing her forehead in front of a tree with their first initials carved into it.
Stefani joined Shelton again on stage to sing their song in September 2016, at a concert in his home state of Oklahoma. It’s almost too cute to see them singing while staring into each other’s eyes.
Woman of the Year
In November, Stefani was honored by Glamour Magazine at its Women of the Year Awards. Shelton accompanied her and was on hand to offer a kiss on the cheek during her big moment.
It may have been too early in their relationship to spend a holiday together in 2015, but 2016 was another story. Stefani posted several photos from their Turkey Day together, including this one with her brother and sister-in-law.
Since her early days in No Doubt, Stefani is rarely seen without her signature thick, dark eyeliner. She shows that look off here, as she gives Shelton a big smooch for Valentine’s Day.
Smiles on set
After two seasons off, Stefani returned to The Voice in Season 12. She and Shelton look more in love than ever in this shot from the set.
Billboard Music Awards
In May 2017, Shelton won the award for Top Country Artist at the Billboard Music Awards. Stefani accompanied him, congratulating him with a big kiss.
While accepting his award, Shelton said, “I felt like I was the luckiest guy in the room anyway, because Gwen is here with me.”
Season 12 of The Voice ended on May 23, 2017, with two of Shelton’s contestants taking home the second and third prizes.
But Shelton was disappointed — until Stefani took this video of them, saying, “I think you’re a winner.”
CMT Music Awards
Not long after, Shelton attended yet another award show: the CMT Music Awards. Though he didn’t take home the Male Video of the Year award for “Came Here to Forget,” he did get this sweet photo of he and Stefani looking fondly at one another.
A very happy birthday
Shelton celebrated turning 41 on June 18, 2017. In honor of the occasion, Stefani shared a couple of photos, including this one with the hashtag “#happybirthdaycowboy.”
As a family
Stefani has three children from her marriage to Gavin Rossdale: sons Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
As rumors circled regarding whether the couple would have kids of their own, Stefani shared this picture of Shelton goofing off with her youngest.
The best relationships are full of silly, fun moments. In August, Stefani shared this Boomerang of her and Shelton dancing to music and laughing together.
