Gwen Stefani is putting her days as the wife of a ’90s alt-rock star far behind her by continuing to embrace her new role as Blake Shelton’s cowgirl girlfriend. Gwen is slowly starting to morph into the country girl of Blake’s dreams by changing her funky personal style and her lifestyle, which apparently now includes horse riding.
According to Us Weekly, Gwen Stefani has revealed that she’s now the proud owner of a very lucky horse named Halo. The “Used To Love You” singer revealed that her big brown “bunny” is a gift, so naturally everyone is speculating that Blake Shelton bought the horse for his new girlfriend.
“My new bunny #bestpresentever hi Halo,” Gwen captioned the Instagram snapshot below.
Gwen Stefani shared a second photo of Halo all decked out in riding gear, including a fancy fringe breast collar and a colorful saddle blanket. Of course, Gwen would only ride a super-stylish horse.
“Look at my fancy fringe!! #cantbelivemylife Gx #Halo,” Gwen captioned the second photo, which was seemingly taken at a ranch. Perhaps she’s currently visiting Blake Shelton’s rustic country boy abode in Oklahoma.
Halo’s name could be a reference to the word “Angel” in the title of Gwen Stefani’s debut solo album, “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.” The album’s acronym, “L.A.M.B.,” is also the name of Gwen’s stylish clothing line. Speaking of which, don’t be surprised if her next clothing collection includes quite a bit of camouflage – in addition to humoring Blake Shelton by doing country girl things like going horseback riding, Gwen Stefani has started rocking Southern closet staples like camouflage shirts and hats.

Gwen Stefani has only been dating Blake Shelton since November, but it’s pretty obvious that the “Sangria” singer has already had a huge impact on her life. According to Extra, Gwen recently revealed that she’s on cloud nine right now, and Blake probably has a lot do with her feeling of elation. She was down in the dumps after she and Gavin Rossdale announced that they were divorcing last August, and a new love what just what she needed to turn that frown upside down.
“I think I might be the happiest I’ve ever been,” Gwen said during a recent interview on Real Talk, Mary J. Blige’s Beats1 radio show. “I had a year that was so full of horror — the worst, worst. But at the same time, the greatest stuff as well.”
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have pretty much been inseparable ever since they started dating. The Voice coaches spent part of the Christmas holidays together in Blake’s hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma, and Gwen helped her cowboy boyfriend cheer on his favorite NFL team by attending an Arizona Cardinals game with him last month. Blake even asked Gwen to be his wedding date when he was invited to watch his stylist, Amanda Craig, walk down the aisle earlier this month.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Gwen Stefani actually caught the bouquet at Amanda Craig’s wedding after it hilariously bounced off of Blake Shelton’s head. There’s an old superstition that says that the woman who gets her hands on the bridal bouquet will be the next one to walk down the aisle, but Shelfani fans shouldn’t expect to hear wedding bells anytime soon – Blake Shelton recently shut down all those crazy rumors about how he’s supposedly planning a shotgun wedding because Gwen is pregnant with twins. According to ETonline, Blake was asked about the wedding and pregnancy rumors while he was doing his grocery shopping at a store in Studio City, California.
“I think it’s awfully early to be talking about that, don’t you?” the singer said.
Blake also denied reports that he and Gwen are planning on moving in together.
Gwen Stefani might not be pregnant with Blake Shelton’s baby just yet, but her relationship with the country crooner is definitely continuing to progress – she and Blake did just commit to taking care of Halo the horse together, after all.
