Gwen Stefani has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Hollaback Girl singer, 54, was recognised for her music career by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on Thursday.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think, this girl right here from Orange County, would have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," Gwen told the crowd. "It just doesn't make sense to me."

The star was accompanied at the ceremony by her husband, Blake Shelton, 47, and her three sons, Kingston, 17, Zuma, 15, and Apollo, nine.

During her speech, Gwen gave a shout-out to music executive Jimmy Iovine - who was in attendance alongside country icon Reba McEntire.

The Don't Speak rocker spoke of the first time she met Jimmy at a music showcase, where he predicted she would be a "star".

"You said 'In six years, you're going to be a star.' And I said 'six years, that's just weird!' Like, 'in six years I'm going to be pregnant with my fifth child. I won't be doing music,"' she remarked. "Six years on the dot Don't Speak was number one around the world and he was right!"

Along with achieving star status, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Steven Nissen announced that Thursday 19 October was now officially named Gwen Stefani Day.
