There's a new Sexiest Man Alive and he goes by the name of Blake Shelton, according to People.

"That y'all must be running out of people", he said to People.

The country singer said that his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, encouraged him to accept the honor. "She goes, 'Listen to me, you're going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don't take this gift and just live in the moment", Shelton says of his "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" duet partner.

Bonus for the outspoken Shelton: He can hold the accolade over the head of Adam Levine, his fellow coach on the singing competition and a former Sexiest Man Alive himself.

Shelton said he was, in fact, proud and honored to have been picked, adding: "I'm not going to treat this like Hugh Jackman or one of those guys who's humble about it. People are going to hate me over this".

The magazine's Sexiest Man Alive special double issue hits newsstands Friday.

Shelton, 41, opened up to the magazine about his awkward phase, his food weaknesses and how he stays in shape. "People say I haven't changed since before I made it".

"It could be 2 o'clock in the afternoon before I eat and then I realize I'm starving, so then it's a bag of Cheetos". And then I'm not hungry again until 10 o'clock, well what's in there?
