Gwen Stefani Says ‘Best Friend’ Blake Shelton Kissed Her ‘Back to Life’
When it comes to Gwen Stefani's relationship with Blake Shelton, mum is no longer the word — the "Misery" singer declared in front of a room full of people (and cameras) that he's managed to completely revive her.
While accepting the distinction of Woman of the Year at last night's (November 14) Glamour Women of the Year Awards, Stefani thanked her boyfriend of a year for his support through tough times, and didn't tiptoe around her affection for him.
Stefani and her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, split in August 2015 after 13 years of marriage following a highly publicized cheating scandal in which details of Rossdale's affair with the family's nanny leaked.
"To Blake Shelton, for kissing me back to life, thank you so much," Stefani said as part of her acceptance (you can see it in the video above at 1:46)
Stefani added in a separate ET interview that Shelton has helped her to harness a life that had begun to spin out of control, and credited him with urging her to see her own new potential.
"It's incredible to have a best friend like that guy — he's an amazing person," she said. "This year was like someone said, 'Hey, wake up!' and I was like, 'Whoa! Oh my god!' I thought I was seeing in color, but now I'm really seeing in color...I didn't know I was in a cocoon ready to bust out."
