The No Doubt frontwoman turned 52 on Sunday, and her husband Blake Shelton didn't shy away from sharing his love for the birthday girl.

"Happy birthday to my better half.. my WIFE!!!! I love you @gwenstefani!" Shelton, 45, wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post, alongside a black-and-white photo of the happy couple on the dance floor on their wedding day.

The pair got married in July at the country superstar's Tishomingo ranch in Oklahoma.

"His love for her is so deep," a source told PEOPLE at the time. "Having the wedding at home was a way for their families — and Gwen — to be as comfortable as possible."

The Sweet Escape artist began dating Shelton in November 2015, after she joined him on The Voice coaching panel. They announced their engagement in October 2020, almost nine months before they tied the knot.
