Gwen Stefani is a total icon, loved by her legions of fans, not just for her musical talents, but also her unique sense of style.
Her signature look may have evolved from the No Doubt days, which saw the young singer/songwriter styled with a bleached bob haircut and denim dungarees, followed by the Harajuku Girl-inspired fashion era. Nowadays we're more likely to see a polished Gwen, the epitome of old-school Hollywood glamour styling it out on the red carpet. But one thing remains the same - Gwen is always flawless.
Gwen has been hot property since breaking onto the music scene in the nineties as the lead singer of No Doubt. The band’s hiatus in 2004 allowed Gwen Stefani to go on to launch a hugely successful solo career, with top hits such as Hollaback Girl and Let Me Reintroduce Myself. She’s since become a regular face on the American version of The Voice alongside her now-fiancé, Blake Shelton.
Since getting together in 2015, the pair have become one of the most adored celebrity couples in America. With wedding bells just around the corner, their upcoming nuptials look set to be the celebrity event of 2021.
Gwen - who recently ditched her trademark blonde locks for a jet-black bob - has ageless beauty and an iconic sense of style to rival catwalks around the world, so you may be surprised to learn how old the singer/songwriter and TV presenter actually is.
How old is Gwen Stefani?
Gwen Stefani was born on October 3, 1969 - making her 51 years old. She was born to Patti Flynn and Dennis Stefani, who were both big fans of folk music, and she had three siblings - two brothers, Eric and Todd and a sister, Jill.
The family grew up in Fullerton, California and her brother, Eric, performed alongside Gwen in No Doubt as the keyboardist. He later went on to become an animator on The Simpsons. Gwen Stefani’s passion for music was reportedly inspired by her older brother Eric - he encouraged her to join No Doubt as a vocalist.
Although she is incredibly close with her family, Gwen previously revealed her upbringing wasn’t always plain sailing. In fact, Just A Girl was inspired by her “strict” upbringing, which she found “frustrating”.
The singer/ songwriter said, “My parents were quite strict with me and I was living at home even into my twenties and I would have to come home and like, knock on my parents' door, and it was frustrating because I was older. You know what I mean?"
At the age of 37, Gwen became a mother for the first time to a son, Kingston, with her now ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale.
She went on to have two more children, Zuma Nesta Rock and Apollo Bowie Flynn. Gwen gave birth to her youngest at the age of 44 and described pregnancy in her forties as “a whole new spiritual place”.
When did Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton get engaged?
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have to be one of the most-loved celebrity couples in the US. They allegedly met when they co-starred on NBC’s The Voice, where they quickly fell in love. Both Gwen and Blake were going through divorces at the time.
The couple announced their engagement with a super sweet photograph of the pair locked in a passionate embrace. Blake posted the picture, captioning it, 'Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020... And the rest of my life... I love you. I heard a YES!'

Gwen and Blake were together for five years before they decided to tie the knot, with Gwen admitting that she felt insecure before Blake proposed.
It looks like preparations for Gwen and Blake's wedding are already underway, - with Gwen reportedly asking this celebrity to be her maid of honor.
What is the age difference between Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton?
Gwen Stefani is 51 and Blake Shelton is 44, meaning there is a seven-year age gap.
The couple met on The Voice five years ago, but only got engaged last year. Blake is step-father to Gwen’s three sons and it’s a role he takes very seriously. “I can’t imagine my life without these kids now,” he recently confessed.
What is Gwen Stefani’s net worth?
Gwen Stefani’s net worth is reported to be around $150 million, from music sales and her work as a fashion designer.
It is thought she and her new fiancé, Blake Shelton, will sign a prenup agreement to protect her fortune when they tie the knot.
