At the time, they were still married to their former partners.

For Blake, this was fellow country singer, Miranda Lambert, and for Gwen, it was Gavin Rossdale.

2. It was their mutual divorces that allowed them to get closer:

Going through a public divorce isn’t easy. Thankfully, these two had each other to lean on.

“That’s kind of how our friendship and bond started, that day,” Shelton told Billboard.

“It went from that, to checking in on each other once a week through email — ‘This [expletive] happened to me, what happened to you?’ — to maybe three times a week.”

Aww! Soon, feelings got involved.

“Next thing I know, I wake up and she’s all I care about, and I’m ­wondering if she feels the same about me.”

3. Gwen posted their first picture together in November 2014:

At the time, they were “just friends.” But a picture is worth a thousand words. You can see the undeniable chemistry between these two.

Gwen even captioned the photo with “love him.”

4. The early days of their romance were filled with a lot of speculation:

If their chemistry on The Voice was undeniable, things were red-hot when they performed a duet together on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

While they wouldn’t confirm that they were dating, there were reports that they were hanging out.

5. They finally confirmed they were together in November 2015:

Over a year after they first met, these two made things official.

“Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating,” a rep for Shelton confirmed. Their public debut together, though, wouldn’t happen until February 2016.

6. Blake once gave her a horse for her birthday:

“I think that the way that she and I were able to save each other’s lives and get ourselves through that time it was evidence to us that God had a hand in it,” he told Billboard.

To commemorate their fourth anniversary, Blake gave Gwen a necklace with a number 4 charm on it.

She even wore it during the music video of their song together, “Nobody But You.”

10. Gwen helped Blake reconnect with God:

She was the one to convince him to go back to church. This made him connect so much to his hit song, “God’s Country.”

He called it a “revelation” to The Tennessean.

11. They split their time between California and Oklahoma:

It’s the perfect balance of city and country.

Surprisingly, Gwen doesn’t mind the slow pace of the country life. “It’s a nice contrast to L.A.,” she told Shape about living on Blake’s ranch.

“Although I do keep 20 chickens in the backyard here at home too.”

While the coronavirus pandemic has halted a lot of wedding plans, it’s done the opposite for the couple: It’s made them more certain of marriage!

“Gwen knows she is blessed and wants to have the wedding as soon as social distancing guidelines are lifted,” a source close to the couple told Us Weekly.

When they do get married, it’s likely to happen at Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma.

“There will be a few dozen of their closest friends and family, but Gwen doesn’t see the need for anything huge in terms of numbers,” the source shared.

15. Gwen has actually been waiting for a while to get hitched:
