Blake Shelton Named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive' 2017

Gwen Stefani knows she's going to have a happy holiday - because she's spending it with boyfriend Blake Shelton. The 41-year-old Shelton relented, deadpanning he's been "ugly" all his life so he'll take the yearlong reign with a smile. Only Shelton used some colorful language to describe that experience between his pal and banter partner on air.

"I'm not going to treat this like Hugh Jackman or one of those guys who's humble about it. People are going to hate me over this", Shelton joked, Reuters reported. Shelton tells People that she advised him he'd regret it if he turned the honor down.

Blake Shelton is People's 2017 Sexiest Man Alive.

"Despite being a heartthrob with a fan base of millions, the 6'5" Oklahoma-bred Shelton - whose latest album, Texoma Shore, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums this week- insists he had a few awkward phases while growing up. "I think he's hot. And that's fat", he said. "People say I haven't changed since before I made it".

He's not, of course.

Shelton does try to stay in shape by exercising on the treadmill and eating as healthy as possible, though all bets are off when he's home in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.

The men of "This Is Us" are bringing sexy back to TV.

The star went on to confesses that it's always been on her bucket list to release a Christmas album and now she even scored a holiday special with NBC!

Ventimiglia said he believes humour, confidence and kindness are key.

As for Hartley, he agreed and deadpanned, "Stubble and forgiveness, that's my mantra".
