Now, the teary story of how Blake proposed!
The Engagement Story
Blake and Gwen live primarily in Los Angeles, but have spent much of the pandemic at his property in Oklahoma. It’s here that Blake realized just how much he wanted to spend the rest of his days with Stefani.
To help Gwen settle down in the country, Blake custom built her a chapel. She’s a devout Catholic, and “her faith is incredibly important to her” according to sources.
The chapel ended up being a perfect backdrop for Blake’s proposal, especially since it means so much to them both. A source shared with US Weekly that …”Gwen loves the chapel so much and she even has a necklace with a charm of the chapel that she wears often.”
We aren’t exactly sure how Blake proposed or what he said, but we’ll make a bet it was heart felt and left Gwen in happy tears. He’s a chivalrous guy after wall.
Case in point– Blake asked Gwen’s father for his blessing before asking Gwen to marry him. He also made sure Gwen’s three sons approved.
“Blake told her boys that he wanted to propose and asked their permission,” a source who is close to Stefani told People. “Her family very much approves of him. He’s an amazing partner and a great extra dad to the boys. Gwen is ecstatic. The proposal was a surprise.”
Gwen Stefani’s Engagement Ring
Shelton had the rock custom made of course. The glittering ring looks to feature a 6 carat brilliant cut diamond, set in six prongs in white gold or platinum.
Some sources and jewelry experts suggest the solitaire to be worth somewhere around $500,000, depending on the exact quality of the stone.
If you want to catch a glimpse of Gwen and her gorgeous ring, just tune in to The Voice on NBC. The season 19 Blind Audition, Battle Rounds and Knockouts were all taped before Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani went public with their news.
That means the recent live shows are the first time the No Doubt singer has been rocking her epic sparkler on the show.
Wedding plans haven’t been mentioned, but those close to the couple are guessing it will be sooner than later. After five years of dating, they’re ready to make it official!
