Blake Shelton seemed to enjoy his birthday weekend. He was surrounded by friends, family and girlfriend Gwen Stefani as he turned 41 — oh, and a giant armadillo.

Stefani shared a photo of Shelton with his “Birthday armadillo” — an oversized black and gold replication of the animal, made of cake — on Instagram, but that was just the icing on the … well, you get it.

The No Doubt star shared several photos with Shelton throughout the weekend, showing fans what “summer love” looks like after divorce. One shot shows her on a boat, her white-blonde hair blowing in the wind as Shelton steers them across a body of water. She thanks God for her country-singing man in one snapshot and kisses on him in another shared Sunday (June 18), writing: “I get to kiss on the birthday boy.”

Shelton, meanwhile, turned his attention to his fans, thanking them wishing him a Happy Birthday on Twitter and joking that he’s beating the odds upon turning 41:

He got mushy at CMA Fest earlier in the month, however, telling Today Show host Hoda Kotb that he’s “content and happy” with Gwen Stefani and that she’s his best friend. The pair began dating after meeting on The Voice and finding comfort in one another after their respective divorces.
