Country Singer Blake Shelton Steps Away From The Voice To Put Family First
Country singer Blake Shelton steps away from The Voice to put his family first.
Blake has become a household name between his singing career and being a coach on shows like The Voice. But he’s found something far more important than fame and fortune. It’s family.
Country Singer Blake Shelton Is Married To Gwen Stefani
Blake Shelton and his wife, Gwen Stefani, just celebrated their first wedding anniversary after a whirlwind romance.
“Gwen and I have done so much traveling and touring and work the first half of our lives that now we’re like, ‘Hey, I’m good to put my sweatpants on at 6 p.m. and watch Ozark eight times.’ That’s our life now, and we love it,” he said.
Aside from their love of music, they also spend a lot of time gardening, but their main goal is to watch their kids grow up. Blake is the stepfather to Gwen’s boys, Kingston, 16, Zuma, 14, and Apollo, 8. His priorities have changed!
Blake Shelton The Family Man
There is a reason why the Bible puts such an emphasis on fatherhood. Fatherhood is an opportunity to show the love of our heavenly father, to love and care for children as God loves and cares for us. It’s a high calling that comes with so many rewards.
“If I walked away from my career at this time, the only thing that I run the risk of is having regrets that I’m missing out on some more important things in life. For now, that’s our kids. This isn’t about me anymore and never will be again,” Blake said.
Indeed, this is what true fatherhood looks like. Country singer Blake Shelton is setting an example for fathers everywhere. This is what true love looks like and shows the power of a strong family.
“Even though I’m a stepparent, I take that job very seriously. The kids see me as a very important person in their life. [When they ask,] ‘Why isn’t Blake here?’ I take that stuff to heart. I’ve made plenty of money, but you can’t buy time back. I don’t want any regrets,” he said.
Who else is cheering country singer Blake Shelton on to be a faithful father to his stepkids?
