Blake Shelton, a country singer, has been named by People Magazine as the world’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2017.
The singer, who also doubles as a judge on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ series, told People magazine that “…y’all must be running out of people” when asked what first hit his mind after hearing the news.
He also added that he only got around to accepting it after his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, said to him, “Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment.”
Blake Shelton, however, says the only thing he cares about from being selected is sticking it to his fellow ‘The Voice’ judge and singer, Adam Levine, who was People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2013.
Previous People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive features include Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth and Channing Tatum.
Following the news, it seems like Gwen Stefani just got round to the fact that she could be dating, probably, the hottest man in the world. A while after her boyfriend was featured by the magazine, Gwen Stefani took to social media with a photo of the two lovebirds sharing an intimate kiss, captioned, “I guess I’ve been kissing the #sexiestmanalive all this time…”
The two have now also swapped profile photos on Twitter; with Gwen Stefani having a photo of Blake Shelton as her profile photo, and Blake Shelton having a photo of Gwen Stefani as his profile photo.
