AceShowbiz - Gwen Stefani successfully made a slew of her fans confused when she posted on Instagram on Thursday, March 21 a throwback picture of her and Blake Shelton as teenagers. While the photo was actually photoshopped, some of her followers appeared to believe that the couple had met long before they started dating because the picture looked really realistic.
The photo in question featured the country crooner as a young man who had long brunette locks. Obviously, the boy in the picture wasn't actually Blake because Gwen just put an image of himself on the unnamed boy's face. Meanwhile, the songstress was seen in the picture wearing socks on her hands and had blond curls.
In the caption, Gwen simply tagged "The Voice" coach and added a red heart emoji.
Gwen's photoshop skill was surely worth praising because several fans thought that the photo was real. In the comment section, there were similar messages which read, "Shut up! Is this for real?" "Did you guys really know each other back then? I'm confused," and "What? You guys had met in the past?" One fan even said, "You looked perfect for each other back then too."
Blake himself seemed to like the picture so much he used it as his Instagram account's profile picture.
Gwen and Blake didn't actually meet until 2015 when they began filming "The Voice" together. The couple has recently been reported to be putting their wedding plans on hold due to her Catholic background. A source previously revealed that the No Doubt singer "began the formal process" to have her marriage to Gavin Rossdale annulled by Catholic church officials "so she can marry Blake and have it recognized by the church."
The insider continued saying, "Gwen's religion has always been extremely important to her. Blake is completely supportive of this."
