During an interview, the country icon Blake Shelton admitted that his relationship with Gwen Stefani might have started as a "rebound," but now was going stronger than ever.


Talking to Willie Geist on Sunday Today, the 42-year-old singer confessed that he met Stefani when he was going through his divorce and was at a stage of his life, which he considers to be his "rock bottom."

He revealed that meeting Stefani was like meeting someone who was "going through the same exact thing" that he was going through at that very moment.

“When I was going through my divorce, I hit rock bottom, just like anybody does when they go through something that devastating. It’s a miracle that I met somebody that was going through the same exact thing that I was at the exact same moment in time,” Shelton told.


He also got candid and accepted that Stefani and he both might have been thinking in the back of their minds that their relationship was a "rebound deal."


Shelton had only recently divorced with his fellow country icon, Miranda Lambert, when he met Stefani as a coach on the set of the famous singing reality competition, The Voice. At the same time, Stefani was also recovering from her divorce with Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale.

The pair started dating back in 2015 and are going strong even after 3 years of being in a relationship.


But when it all had only just started, Shelton admitted that both the stars were not sure that things would become serious. They were "clinging on to each other" so that they could get through "a pretty low spot" in their lives.

“But now here we are, going on three years later and every day that goes by it just feels like a stronger bond between the two of us and it constantly feels like it’s going to the next level,” Shelton concluded in his interview.
