Blake Shelton is leaving "The Voice" when Season 23 ends, and it looks like he will not leave without putting up a good fight. However, many still wonder why Gwen Stefani's husband decided to exit the reality series after 22 seasons.

Shelton and Stefanie tied the knot in 2021, making him the father of her three sons, Apollo, Zuma, and Kingston, whom she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. Now that the kids are growing up, the country singer wants to quit "The Voice" to focus on their family.

The 46-year-old wants to spend quality time with his wife and stepsons, even if it means leaving the show he loves. He told People that if he walked away from his career now, the only thing he would run the risk of is "having regrets that he's missing out on some more important things" in his life.

He stressed that it isn't about him anymore and will never be again. Sure, he makes a lot of money from the show, but he knows he can't buy time back.

Hence, he wants to invest more time in his family, which means being with their kids. Though he's only their stepfather, he takes the job very seriously.

Alternatively, Stefani's kids see Shelton as equally important in their lives. He even feels sentimental whenever they look for him when he's not present at any events.

The TV personality added that each kid has something different to teach him, like finding out that he's more than just a country singer and a goofy guy. For them, he's someone they can lean on, giving him incredible self-worth.

So, now that he's leaving "The Voice" after Season 23, many will surely miss his mischief ways. However, with his fame and significance in the show, will he win big this time?

But when Carson Daly announced the first four singers who would advance to the current season's finals on Monday, no one from Shelton's remaining three members made it to the Wildcard Instant Save and a spot in the Top Five.

If fans would think it was because they were the best, TVLine noted that they weren't. Though one of them has the "unique and inventive" voice, the aspirants from John Legend and Stefani's respective teams are undeniably more gifted than Shelton's group.

Though the publication admitted it didn't hate them, it's safe to say that neither their great performances nor their coach's popularity helped them get votes to make it to the finals. That said, fans have to wait and see what "The Voice" will be like when Shelton, whose team has won eight times, leaves.
