Gwen Stefani recently appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and gave insight into her and Blake Shelton’s first official date. Kelly was showing images of Gwen’s outfits and having her comment on each one when she showed a photo of the pop star from 2016 in an orange dress and said she loved it, asking what the occasion was. Stefani replied, “That was my first public date with Blake Shelton, actually.” the studio audience erupted in applause. “It was, it was that night. It was the Oscars Vanity Fair party. I think I played at the party; then we went out that night.”
She went on to say that the night was a special one but out of the ordinary for Blake, “He never does red carpets, now that I know him. It was kind of a red carpet. It was raining that night.”
Gwen then gushed, “That melts me when I see it because that was such a moment for me. A good one.”
Stefani and Shelton began dating in 2015, and the couple tied the knot in 2021.
The couple shared their first wedding anniversary in July with the world by posting to their social media accounts. Blake posted an image of the couple on their wedding day in 2021 on Instagram. He wrote. “Happy anniversary to the woman that makes my world go round.. @gwenstefani, because of you, this year has been the best year of my life. I love you!!!! Thank you for saying yes!”
Gwen responded to his post, “my dream man – thank u, God !!! gx.”
