It’s safe to say that Gwen Stefani and her new beau, Blake Shelton, have a long-distance relationship…that works! They are living in different states, at least for the moment, and they go through tough times, probably, like any other long-distance couples, especially on days like February 14, when other people’s love is invading your privacy to the point that you can’t take it anymore.
Well, even though they spent Valentine’s Day apart, Stefani tells E! that Shelton made a very romantic gesture. “The greatest guy ever”, as she describes him, was in Oklahoma, while she was in New York City. “He forgot!” the singer said about Shelton on Valentine’s Day. “No, just kidding. I got some beautiful flowers and lots of texts.” She added, a bit sad though, that Valentine’s was “as fun as spending the romantic holiday in separate states can be. I mean, you know…”
47-year-old Gwen is back on The Voice as a coach, for the third time. The show is back, starting February 27, on NBC. In addition to that, the singer, who has become the new face of Revlon earlier this year, took the stage at a recent event of the company’s, centered on their new campaign, Choose Love.
Meanwhile, 40-year-old country star Blake Shelton, who has been on The Voice since the beginnings of the show, in 2010, is currently in Oklahoma.
The couple is working together on The Voice and Stefani admits that, at times, it becomes confusing what they can share and what they can’t. “We’re driving home and I’m like, ‘Do you think I should put them together?’ And then I’m like, ‘Wait a minute! I’m not going to talk to you about this! I don’t know if you are the enemy. This is confusing.’”, she tells The Inquisitr. “We actually do help each other, and I’ve learned a lot about country music—just in last year—through him”, she added.
Gwen Stefani began dating Blake Shelton in November 2015. She had filed for divorce from Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale in the summer of that same year. Their divorce was finalized in April 2016.

Blake Shelton has been married twice so far. In 2003, he married his girlfriend at the time, Kaynette Gern. Their marriage lasted three years. In 2005 he met country singer Miranda Lambert, with whom he tied the knot in 2011. Four years later, in July 2015, they announced their separation. Their divorce was finalized the same month.
