You read that correctly. Blake Shelton has been crowned People Magazine’s 2017 Sexiest Man Alive.
According to People Magazine, Blake Shelton was surprised by the news. This was what ran through his mind:
“That y’all must be running out of people,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Like, Wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”
All kidding aside, Shelton, 41, credits his girlfriend of two years, Gwen Stefani, for convincing him to embrace the crown. “She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment,” Shelton says.
