Gwen Stefani stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Feb. 21 and couldn’t help but gush over her boyfriend, Blake Shelton.

“I love Blake!” She announced just minutes into her conversation with host Seth Meyers. “He’s the most incredible guy. Everybody loves Blake and that’s the thing. There’s no way around it. He’s just a sparkly, happy and amazing person.”

Although the two have been together for more than a year now, Gwen revealed that she didn’t know anything about Blake prior to becoming his co-star on “The Voice.”

“I didn’t even know that Blake Shelton existed in the world,” said Gwen. “I had no idea. It’s interesting though because, weirdly, my mom and my sister-in-law used to watch the show before me. So they [knew who he was.]”

While “The Voice” may have brought Gwen and Blake together romantically, Gwen says she isn’t just Blake’s girlfriend. She’s also a self-proclaimed fan of the 40-year-old “Sangria” singer.

“I am like the biggest Blake Shelton fan ever now,” said Gwen. “I know all of his music. It’s interesting because I didn’t grow up with country, but my parents were really into bluegrass and folk music. So I went to a lot of bluegrass concerts.”

She continued,”The first ever concert I went to was Emmylou Harris. Back in the day I got pulled out of Girl Scouts and we went to the Palomino nightclub Los Angeles. So it’s kind of full circle in a weird way.”

Turns out that Gwen isn’t the only “Stefani” fan of Blake’s music though. On Feb. 21, she took to Snapchat with a photo of her parents, Patti and Dennis, rocking hoodies with Blake’s name across the front.

While Gwen clearly adores her beau, don’t expect her to be easy on her man when it comes to “The Voice.” Gwen will rejoin the cast of coaches for season 12. And already, she’s determined not to let Blake take the crown – especially since he’s the coach with the most wins.

“[Blake’s] in trouble this season, because I’m about ready to get on,” she joked. “He’s been on the couch a few nights!”

Season 12 of “The Voice” begins on Feb. 27 on NBC.
