On an Instagram Story posted on Tuesday, Gwen Stefani offered another alternative, alerting her fans that Blake Shelton had come up with a second joint moniker for the pair.
“Just so you know, I got a new nickname for me and Blake, it’s called ‘Gwake,’ and I’m really excited about it!” she happily revealed to her followers while in a car on the way to The Voice’s first live show. “It’s like Gwen and Blake together, but Gwake. I didn’t make that up, [Blake] made that up.”
Gwen Stefani headed backstage with her fellow coaches where she congratulated coach John Legend on his newly bestowed title of PEOPLE‘s Sexiest Man Alive, an honor that Shelton was awarded in 2017.
“I learned it from Blake,” Legend said as Stefani congratulated him.
“I’m sorry Blake,” Stefani told her boyfriend as the camera panned on a blown-up poster of Legend’s magazine cover. “This is one of my…what’s the word? Protégé,” Shelton replied. “I took him under my wing, taught him everything I know. I taught him how to pull his jacket over to cover his gut, I do it all the time.”
Shelton was the one to reveal Legend’s new title to the world, announcing the news on Tuesday night’s episode and gifting his fellow coach with a pair of denim shorts bedazzled with “VEGOTSMA” across the back.
