Gwen Stefani Reveals What Was ‘Almost a Deal-Breaker’ in Her Relationship with Blake Shelton
On last night's episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Gwen Stefani opened up about what almost ruined her romance with Blake Shelton.
While speaking about their first trip to an amusement park together, Gwen said, “He [wouldn't] do the roller coasters. That was literally, like, that was almost a deal-breaker for me. I was like, 'I don't know.'"
Shelton had a legit excuse for skipping some of the rides, though. She explained, "He doesn't fit in anything. We did go on the Matterhorn, he did. But he barely fit inside the little thing. His knees were up like this." Watch!
Since Gwen, 47, and Blake, 40, are so well-known, they were unable to go unrecognized. She said, "I know that for me, I just go anywhere, and I know I'm gonna get hounded for pictures or whatever… He's in the woods most of the time but, yeah, we went. It was crazy. It was, like, a billion people there.”
Gwen also reflected on one of their dinner outings, where they were immediately acknowledged. She shared, "Of course, everybody recognizes him wherever he goes, but we walked into [a] sushi restaurant and literally the entire restaurant stood up and was like, 'Blake!' It was like the whole world had just watched ['The Voice'], and we walked in the room. I felt so bad. He really is a country boy. I think he's quite miserable when he's not in the woods or, like, somewhere in camo. He really likes to be camouflaged."
