“Woke up this morning to news that Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive. RIP every sexy man in the world who died in the ‘Great Sexy Plague of 2017’ overnight. You will be missed,” read one Tweet.
“Blake Shelton is sexy if you like a guy who’s always about to lean in and tell you about a hearty, healthy American dog food,” wrote another.
For Shelton’s revealing interview—including his life with Gwen Stefani—pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
While the 41-year-old singer — whose album Texoma Shore hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this week — has had to field some haters, his fans have also come out in droves to gush over his new title.

Beauty is not always just skin deep. Every human is a masterpiece sculpted in a unique way at the time of our creation. We all deserve a moment where our unique outer & inner beauty is acknowledged. This is Blake Shelton’s time so let him enjoy that moment, hopefully you’re next. pic.twitter.com/MGABXshC1t— Barbara????Ann (@TweetingYarnie) November 15, 2017
“I guess I’ve been kissing the #sexiestmanalive all this time but @people I knew that allready [sic]!!” she wrote on Twitter, adding a cute photo of the couple smooching.
“He’s perfect for it. Somebody that is funny and has a sense of humor is sexy — that’s the No. 1 thing. It’s interesting because I don’t think any of those things like beauty or sexy or whatever what you want to describe humans is necessarily a physical thing that people are attracted to,” said Stefani, 48. “It’s all about the heart, and he has that big ol’ gigantic heart in there, so he’s quite an attractive human. I’m not the only one that thinks it!”
