‘COVID,’ Stefani explained. ‘It got really small. I had this fantasy of building like bleachers, but it got smaller and smaller, and as you know, the Lord works in mysterious ways.’

‘It was the perfect amount of people. It was so intimate. It was so exactly what it needed to be,’ she said, adding that the, ‘marriage itself is just so fun.’

She added that she is, ‘so into it,’ and she, ‘feels very blessed,’ as Ellen added that they could tell, ‘you two just clicked.’

‘He’s my best friend. We just have so much fun,’ Stefani enthused, as Ellen mentioned that Blake is back home on the ranch, ‘literally tilling the soil.’

‘He literally texted me an hour ago. He flew home today. We are doing a major – when we do things, we go big. We’re doing major gardening,’ she said.

‘We’re talking about daffodils, we’re talking about like tulips. We did all the bulbs, now we’re doing wildflower seeds, now we’re doing xenias. So I sent him home to figure out how to till all the land and dig a well,’ she added.

When Ellen asked if Blake is doing this all himself, Gwen said he has, ‘one guy’ but that Blake is, ‘literally on the tractor turning the dirt for me when I get there.’

She admitted, ‘I personally like it when people do things for me… a lot. I’m from Anaheim, California and I’m lazy like that, but he actually likes to do it himself.’

Stefani was struck by the fact that she was there to talk about her makeup line and she was talking about planting seeds because, ‘it’s such a huge thing in my life.’

‘I think about all the different seeds that were planted in my life, these seeds of faith, the seeds of these wild ideas I had that actually came true, and even the one to fall in love with Blake. It’s crazy because now I’m gonna go back there and plant so many flowers and they’re gonna bloom, it’s so exciting,’ she admitted. 

She also played Burning Questions with Ellen, revealing that ‘everything’ she does embarrasses her kids, the weirdest rumor about her was that she was actually a man, that Blake’s nickname for her is Pretty Girl and her nickname for him is Blakey and that she actually auditioned for Mr. And Mrs. Smith.
