Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are going strong after two years of dating and in a new interview, the "Used to Love You" songstress opened up about their "real" love and their adorable "tribe."
As she and Shelton continue to face rumors of babies and weddings, Stefani spoke to Marie Claire magazine about their life behind the scenes.
“He’s my best friend,” Stefani said, according to a report by Hollywood Life on Nov. 20.
Stefani and Shelton began dating one another at the end of 2015 and in November of that year, they publicly confirmed their romance with a joint outing in Nashville at an afterparty for an award show in the area. Since then, they have been spending time as a "tribe" with Stefani's three children, 11-year-old Kingston, 9-year-old Zuma, and 3-year-old Apollo.
“It’s very tribal. Blake has a sister, she comes with her kids. We cook and get muddy and dirty," Stefani revealed of life with Shelton in his hometown in Oklahoma. "There are ATV’s. Being a mother of three boys, it’s kind of the perfect place. Everything is real now, whereas before, things didn’t seem so real.”
Also, during her interview with Marie Claire magazine, Stefani addressed her messy split from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, the father of her three sons.
“I could not understand why I’d had so much heartache in my life. I have parents who are still married and in love. I had such loving role models. I didn’t understand it,” she said.
As fans may recall, Stefani's former husband was accused of cheating on her during their 13-year marriage with their ex-nanny, Mindy Mann. According to a Us Weekly magazine report in 2015, Stefani learned of Rossdale's alleged affair from a staff member and ultimately saw proof of their plans to meet for sex in text messages sent from their family's iPad.
“What I learned was that my heartbreak was supposed to happen, that it was my purpose to write about and share my story,” she explained. “I met at least 50 to 100 people before each show on my tour and got to hear that my truth and my story translated, and I feel very lucky and honored knowing that.”
Although Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are currently facing rumors, which suggest Stefani is undergoing in-vitro fertilization in hopes of conceiving their first child, they have not yet confirmed any such news.
