The 51-year-old said she feels under pressure to look a certain way but isn’t offended by the interest in her appearance because she’s just as concerned with maintaining her youthful looks.

“It’s really hard for everyone to age and have to face life. Especially for females and people who have been in the spotlight, it can be daunting, but you tackle it by just trying to be the most beautiful version of yourself inside and out. People talking about my ageing is a compliment, I guess. I’m kind of obsessed with how I’m ageing, too,” she told Australia’s Stellar magazine.

The mother-of-three credited being in a relationship with Blake Shelton, who she began dating in 2015, for helping her look and feel her very best.

“Blake is the greatest guy. I look back over the past few years and look at pictures of when I first started kissing Blake, and I look the best I’ve ever looked in my life in those photos. Love must look good on me. I feel like that does show through – it really does!” she adds.

The couple, who met while serving as coaches on The Voice, went public with their relationship in November 2015 and got engaged in October last year.
