Blake was among the big names singing her praises. As he took to the podium, Gwen stood by his side with a huge smile on her face.
Recalling their first time meeting on The Voice in 2014, Blake said he remembered how the songstress didn’t have any security detail – however her sons acted like her bodyguards, according to KTLA.
‘It was clear to me that she was a mother, first and foremost, over anything else in the world. That was her number one job,’ he said. ‘But today, it’s nice to see her honored for her side project, which is being one of the biggest stars in the world.’
Gwen became emotional listening to her husband sing her praises, according to KTLA.
Once it was her turn to speak to the crowd, she gushed: ‘Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think, this girl right here from Orange County, would have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It just doesn’t make sense to me.’
She then gave a shout-out to Iovine, saying to him: ‘Jimmy! What are we doing?’
Gwen then described the first time they met at a music showcase, where he predicted she would be a ‘star’ in six years.
