Gwen Stefani’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony was a touching moment filled with emotions and heartfelt speeches. The event was attended by her three sons, her husband Blake Shelton, and her family, all gathered to celebrate the Grammy-winning No Doubt singer and “The Voice” coach as she received her star on the Walk of Fame.
Before Blake Shelton took the stage to praise his wife, several music industry heavyweights paid homage to Gwen Stefani’s illustrious career as an artist. In his speech, Shelton expressed his admiration for her unique talent, saying she was “born with” it. He humorously added, “She has risen to the top over and over again with her unique style that has made the world fall in love with her − not as much as me, though.”

During Shelton’s heartfelt words, Gwen Stefani was visibly moved, occasionally wiping away tears. He highlighted that, in his view, she is not only a remarkable artist but also “my all-time favorite songwriter.” Shelton recounted their first meeting in 2014 and how it was evident to him that being a mother was Gwen’s top priority. Even after almost a decade, he noted that motherhood remained the most important aspect of her life, which he found to be a rarity in the entertainment industry. He humorously quipped that it was “nice to see her honored for her side project, which is being one of the biggest stars in the world.”
