Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Have Just Announced Their Engagement After 5 Years of Dating

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani first met on the set of “The Voice” in 2015. The singers had an instant connection. They say that they initially bonded because they were in a very similar place in life. They were both going through a divorce from another musician. 

Shelton told Billboard, “I looked over at Gwen—who I didn’t really know—and she had these huge tears in her eyes. I thought it was going to be another one of those ‘things are going to be OK’ talks. She said, ‘I’m going through something very similar to what you’re going through. I understand. And I hate it.”

The pair has been dating pretty much ever since. Shelton has taken on a parental role with Stefani’s children, and the whole gang has been quarantining together at Shelton’s 1,200 acre ranch in Oklahoma.

Five years is a long time to date, and many people are bound to wonder if wedding bells will be ringing soon. Although she admitted she liked the sound of Shelton being called her husband, Stefani was always careful to remind everyone that they are not married, and until recently, she denied any future wedding plans.

Earlier today, Stefani posted a photo on Instagram where she is kissing Shelton and showing off a huge diamond on her ring finger. She captioned the photo saying, “@blakeshelton yes please!” It seems that wedding bells will be ringing after all!
