Gwen Stefani has been praised by Blake Shelton’s friends and family members, who are all under the impression that the country singer has completely changed his lifestyle and attitude for the better. It’s not to say that Blake wasn’t happy before meeting Gwen, but during the time that the 41-year-old was going through his divorce from Miranda Lambert, it was extremely difficult for the musician to find some sort of happiness since the breakup really affected him. Though he was still recording music and showing up on the set of “The Voice,” it went without saying that Blake Shelton was often down and depressed over the downfall of his marriage.

Gwen wants to get married again in the future

Going to work on “The Voice,” however, would eventually lead him to meet Gwen Stefani, who claims to have never heard of Shelton before joining the talent show. The two quickly hit it off and within weeks they were dating one another.

Since then, sources tell Hollywood Life that Blake has been over the moon in his relationship to the “Hollaback Girl” hitmaker. He’s a brand new person and his spirit has definitely been lifted up again. From the fun activities Gwen organizes with her beau, to planning vacations and even working on music together, Blake couldn’t be happier that he’s found Stefani, who his family claims have truly changed his life for the better.

“Friends of both Blake and Gwen feel that she has changed him and has given him some structure and actually is the one in control when it comes to their relationship. She definitely wears the pants and he pretty much follows what she wants to do and he is totally cool with it,” the source explains.

Singer reportedly thinks Blake is 'the one'

The insider adds by saying that Gwen is quite protective over Blake, but he likes that about her. She’s so nurturing but also fun to be around, which has made Shelton realize what kind of a perfect fit they are for each other. In the midst of hearing about their doting love, it’s believed that Gwen and Blake still have plans to tie the knot later this year, according to Hollywood Life, having allegedly been talking about tying the knot for almost a year.

It’s something the couple really want to do, a source reveals, adding that the twosome is convinced they will stay together for a lifetime. With alleged plans to get married in the near future, considering the fact that Blake and Gwen have been together for close to two years, should getting married be the couple's next step?
