“The Voice” has never had a married couple on the panel of the show’s competing coaches — until now. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got married in 2021 and now that Stefani is returning to the show for season 21, the two have spoken about what it will be like to work together again now that they are husband and wife.

It’s no secret that Blake Shelton likes when someone on his team is the winner of “The Voice” — he’s won the show more times than any other coach (eight times; next best coach is Kelly Clarkson with four wins) and his rivalry with former coach Adam Levine was legendary.

So is he worried about his wife returning to the show for the first season since season 19, a season she won with singer Carter Rubin? No he is not.

“[Gwen] happens to be one of the least competitive people I know. Being on a competitive show with your wife who is also uncompetitive is the best situation you can be in,” Shelton said in a new interview with NBC Insider.

But he’s only teasing, of course, because he also said that the “best thing about working with [his] woman” is that he never has to be separated from her. The two married on July 3, 2021, and as they recently celebrated their one-year anniversary, they posted heartfelt tributes on Instagram.

“Happy anniversary to the woman who makes my world work. @gwenstefani, you made this year the best year of my life. I love you!!!! Thanks for saying yes!” Shelton wrote, to which Stefani replied in the comments: “My dream man! Thank God!”

On her own Instagram, Stefani posted a video and simply wrote, “One year down forever,” to which Shelton replied, “Love you! Thanks for saying yes!”

In her own interview with NBC Insider, Stefani said that returning to the show after two seasons is definitely “very surreal,” especially now that she’s married to her competition.

“Being on the set of ‘The Voice’ again this time was very surreal,” she said. “Being married brought back so many memories of all the different seasons that we were on ‘The Voice’ together, all the different phases of our friendship, our relationship.”

She added that for her and Shelton, “it doesn’t matter where [they] are” because they “always have fun together”.

“It was kind of simple and flawless and normal,” Stefani said of the collaboration. “It just feels like we’re in any other place we’re together. And I have a lot of fun with him here.”

The Voice returns for its 22nd season on NBC in fall 2022. Stefani is taking on Clarkson, who is taking a year off amid her divorce proceedings, and pop star Camila Cabello is stepping in as the new trainer, replacing outgoing trainer Ariana Grande.
