Gwen and Blake met on the set of NBC's The Voice and confirmed their relationship in November 2015 after divorcing their spouses. Gwen ended her marriage to husband of 13 years, and the father of her three sons, Kingston, ten, eight-year-old Zuma and two-year-old Apollo, Gavin Rosedale in August. The Honey Bee singer split from fellow country musician Miranda Lambert in July, following four years of marriage.

In May, Blake credited his lady-love for helping him get his life back on track after his divorce. “I tell people all the time, 'Gwen saved my life last year,'” Blake said during an interview on CMT's Hot 20 Countdown. "She did, and I think she would probably tell you something similar about me. It's not something that anybody could have seen coming, besides God, I guess.”
