Stefani did not appear with the singer at the annual event that celebrates country music’s biggest stars, but did show her support in a message she shared on Instagram before the show.
“Watching this guy @blakeshelton #cmtawards gx,” Stefani wrote.
At the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, Shelton explained that because Stefani was with him, he felt like the “luckiest guy in the room.”
“I felt like I was the luckiest guy in the room anyway because Gwen is here with me, so I had a good feeling about it,” Shelton told the audience during his acceptance speech.
The musical duo has been dating since they meet on “The Voice” in 2015 after they both went through divorces.
