“Right when they called for the break, Blake ran over to [Gwen Stefani]’s chair. They were talking close and laughing until makeup duties called,” an onlooker told People Magazine on November 17.
Prior to the start of filming, Gwen Stefani and Shelton riled up the audience when the mother of three ran into Shelton’s arms after surfacing on set. Then, the couple’s relationship became a hot topic when Shelton recalled their rendition of “Hotline Bling.”
“I don’t think there’s ever been a more elegant and classy performance of a song about a booty call in the history of music,” Shelton said after a performance. “I mean that was, like, unbelievable. I hear that song on the radio every day. That song’s so big even I have heard it.”
“You know that song?” Gwen Stefani’s co-star, Adam Levine, asked her new boyfriend.
In response, Shelton explained, “[Gwen Stefani] sang it to me on the Tonight Show one night, so…”
As the audience erupted, Pharrell Williams attempted to get the focus back on the singer, saying, “Okay, this is your moment… Wow.”
Then, after filming on the episode was complete, Gwen Stefani and Shelton “both just sprinted backstage together.”

During an interview with E! News‘ Sibley Scoles on November 16, Williams spoke of Shelton’s relationship with another one of his co-stars, Adam Levine, calling it “hilarious.” In response, Shelton suggested he was jealous of his relationship with the judging panel, including Levine and Gwen Stefani.
“Are you jealous? I have a relationship going on with 50 percent of this panel. I am dating 50 percent of this panel.”
Just days after Gwen Stefani’s romance with Shelton was confirmed, rumors began swirling regarding her possible pregnancy. According to an OK! Magazine cover, Gwen Stefani was “pregnant” and Shelton was excited he was “finally going to be a dad.” The magazine also showed a photo of Shelton’s ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, claiming she was “disgusted” by the news.
After the report surfaced, Gossip Cop called the report “total BS,” insisting Gwen Stefani and Shelton were not yet starting a family together.
Once Gwen Stefani’s rep confirmed news of their relationship, she and Shelton wasted no time going public with their love for one another. In fact, just hours after their romance was confirmed, Gwen Stefani and Shelton were photographed holding hands and enjoying drinks with friends during a Country Music Awards after party in Nashville.
“With a firm grip on each others’ hands, the couple also carried beverages during their nighttime stroll,” Entertainment Tonight Online revealed earlier this month, along with a series of photos of the couple. “In Shelton’s hand, an unmarked white cup, and in Stefani’s, a wine glass. At the time, the couple was walking between the VIP and main areas of the Warner Music Group CMA after party.”
Prior to her romance with Shelton, Gwen Stefani was married to Gavin Rossdale for 13 years (Rossdale has been accused of having an affair with his former nanny). The couple, who share three children together, parted ways in August of this year, just one month after Shelton’s divorce from Miranda Lambert was announced in July.
