Gwen Stefani recently opened up about her relationship and recent engagement to Blake Shelton, who she met five years ago on the set of “The Voice.” 

“I feel just so excited that I have someone in my life that now I have a chance at like, happiness, you know what I mean?” the 51-year-old singer said during an interview with the “Today” show Thursday morning. “For a long time to come. It’s just a blessing, the whole thing, and it is a miracle.”

Stefani added that there “was a lot of healing to do” when she first met Shelton, as the two had both recently gone through divorces. 

 ”I think there was a lot to consider when you have so many people involved,” she told the “Today” show. “Children, and their hearts, and everybody in my family (and) his family, we all went through a lot together.”

Stefani — who was the winning coach on this past season of “The Voice” — told “Today” that Shelton’s proposal last October was “right on time.” 

Shelton proposed to Stefani at his ranch in Oklahoma, and the two announced their engagement on Oct. 27, according to People. Stefani has previously said that she doesn’t want her wedding to be “a COVID situation” and would like to have all of the family members from both sides in attendance.

‘The Voice’ has a new winner. What’s next for the show?

In November, “The Voice” announced that Nick Jonas would be taking Stefani’s place on the show — which isn’t too much of a surprise since Stefani has never stayed on the show for two consecutive seasons, the Deseret News reported.

The No Doubt lead singer claimed her first victory on “The Voice” in December, when 15-year-old Carter Rubin became the Season 19 winner, according to the Deseret News. Season 20 is expected to begin spring 2021
