"What I've been looking forward to doing for the last four or five years is eyeing that timeline, that part of my career, where I just need to start stripping some things away," he said. "You gotta get some life in there, and marrying Gwen, I've married into a family. She's got three boys ... and all of a sudden you go, there's other stuff."

Blake admitted that while Gwen was initially concerned if having three boys would stop their relationship before it even got started, she couldn't have been further from the truth. 

He said he thought: "I could do this. I didn't know what I was signing up for, but I was all about signing up for it. And every day I've fallen in love with the boys as much as I do with Gwen."

He said his Oklahoma ranch helped win them over too and said it had become "like Disneyland," to them. 

Blake said he taught them to fish, love the outdoors and get inspired by his own hobbies. "When it comes to burning things and starting fires and throwing hatchets, you better get out of the way," he joked.
