On Thursday, her three sons, husband Blake Shelton and her family celebrated the Grammy-winning No Doubt singer and “The Voice” coach during her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, where her star was unveiled on the sidewalk outside the iconic Amoeba Music store.
Several music industry heavyweights paid homage to her career as an artist before Shelton took to the stage to praise his wife, whom he said has a talent “she was just born with.” Shelton himself received his star on Hollywood Boulevard in May.
“She has risen to the top over and over again with her unique style that has made the world fall in love with her − not as much as me, though,” he said.

As her husband of two years lauded Stefani’s personal and professional accomplishments, calling her “my all-time favorite songwriter,” she occasionally wiped away tears.
“It was clear to me that she was a mother, first and foremost, over anything else in the world,” Shelton said of first meeting her in 2014. “And now standing here, almost 10 years later after I first met her, I can say without question that being a mother is still the most important thing in her life.”
He continued, “And I gotta tell you all, that’s rare in this business.”
Shelton joked that “it’s nice to see her honored for her side project, which is being one of the biggest stars in the world.”
