Blake Shelton turned 44 years old on Thursday, and his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, made sure to celebrate the occasion on social media. Stefani used both Instagram and Twitter to share a photo of herself, in a denim shirt, giving Shelton, who was wearing a neon green tropical print shirt, a kiss on the cheek."happy birthday [Blake Shelton] thank u for being my best friend gx #luckyme #june18th," she wrote on Instagram, adding on Twitter, "happy b day to my boo [Blake]."
The sweet snap was similar to a video Stefani recently posted to celebrate her oldest son Kingston's 14th birthday in which Shelton, wearing another tropical top, was sitting at a kitchen counter and hugging a slightly reluctant-looking Kingston while he planted a number of kisses on the teen's cheek. After a few moments, Kingston pulled away and wiped his forehead as Shelton chuckled, his phone back in his hand. "happy b day kingking gx," Stefani captioned the clip.

Other birthday wishes came from HARDY, The Voice winners Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery, Carly Pearce, who dubbed Shelton one of her "favorite people in the whole world," Devin Dawson, who joked about Shelton's Sexiest Man Alive title, former The Voice contestants RaeLynn and The Swon Brothers and several other friends.
