Though Gwen Stefani was the one being honored at the New York Women in Communications' 52nd Annual Matrix Awards on Wednesday, October 26, she couldn't help but rave over hubby Blake Shelton in her acceptance speech after he presented her with a trophy.
The "Rich Girl" singer called out her man first, saying he's her "favorite award ever," then thanking him for "marrying me."
"Wow, this is surreal — weird Blake talking about me like that," the blonde beauty confessed of hearing the country crooner declaring he's "extra proud" of her. "Thank you so much, you're such a babe, and you're so awesome."
Elsewhere in her address, the mom-of-three discussed her dreams, past struggles with dyslexia and paid tribute to her brother, Eric.
Before the shindig began, Stefani, 53, expressed her excitement over their glam excursion.
"It feels exciting to be here in New York with Blake because the last couple of years, we just really don't go out very much, unless we're just at home or on the set of The Voice," she explained to a reporter. "So we went out to dinner last night, we had fancy food... wine, we're in a hotel room. It feels like a date night weekend for us. So a lot of reminiscing."
As OK! previously reported, next year will be Shelton's last on the singing competition, and it was his leading lady who allegedly pushed the 46-year-old to exit his long-running gig.
"Gwen wants him to spend more time with her, so they can ensure a happy future together," a source told Radar.
