According to Gwen, it was obvious from the start that Blake was the right person for her.
‘He’s a good guy,’ she said as she smiled. ‘He is one of the most generous and down-to-earth human beings.
It all sounds so generic, but it’s so true. He’s so talented and so unique and talented and he’s really just my best friend, ” he gushed.
The No Doubt singer had nothing but positive thoughts for the future.
‘I feel so excited to have someone in my life that now I have a chance to be happy, you know what I mean? For a long time. It’s just a blessing, everything and it’s a miracle, ” he said.
Still, Gwen seemed shocked that their relationship took off, as it came in the middle of her divorce from Gavin Rossdale and her split from Miranda Lambert.
“You just don’t see things that are around the corner after the devastation.”
She also had “a lot to consider when so many people are involved,” including the future of her children if she were to remarry.
If anything, she had to suppress her instinct to jump headfirst into the relationship.
‘I think in a romantic way when you fall in love so hard and unexpectedly and so late in your life, you think:’ I want to marry you, like now! ‘She said she. That is the first romantic reaction. We are going to get married, you know?
But after a bit of “healing” from the trauma of previous relationships and breakups, Blake’s proposal “came just in time.”
The couple first confirmed their relationship in 2015 and their fans were able to watch their romance unfold on television when they appeared together on the singing competition The Voice.
Elsewhere in the interview, Today co-host Carson Daly admitted that he once had a conversation with Gwen and Blake in which he urged the two to reconsider dating.
“ Five years ago when you started dating Blake, you will remember this, we went back to your house, your old house in Los Angeles, and I sat you and Blake in the kitchen, ” he recalled.
And I said, “Guys, put on your brakes. This is not good. This is not going to work.” And I looked at Gwen and said, “You’re too, too good for this guy. You’re smart. You’re smart. You’re one of my oldest friends. And then there’s Blake.” she added herself, which amused the singer.
