Before ‘The Voice,’ Gwen Stefani had no idea who boyfriend Blake Shelton was.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are deeply in love now, but Stefani didn’t even know Shelton existed – even though they were both celebrities.

“The country singer only came into my life when he landed a job as a coach on NBC’s singing competition “The Voice,” she says.

“I had no idea he existed before the program,” Stefani, who returns to the show as a coach this season, said on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM “Radio Andy” show. “I had no idea he was human in this world.”
