A source has since confirmed that Shelton actually did pop the question in Oklahoma in the days leading up to the couple’s engagement announcement.

The “Some Beach” singer continued, “I told her, I said, ‘You know you wear more jewelry than Mr T., so I don’t think anybody’s going to pick up on that, Gwen. They did not. You could have guessed it. She was dropping hints!”

I can’t imagine doing anything without him. “He’s my homie,” she said. “And he’s just a really nice, nice guy.” He’s generous and full of love. And, as you mentioned, he’s a smart, smart guy. So you feel safe and can rely on and trust him.”
The California native also revealed that Shelton is a true “artist” with “many different sides to him.” “His true love is just nature and being at that ranch,” she said. And he adores animals, knowing the names of every salamander, tree, bush, and snake in the world. He’s always been the same way. Do you know what I mean? He’s the same guy wherever he goes. And there are some really cool aspects to that. And there’s something special about someone who is both genuine and talented because when you hear him sing, you’re like, ‘My God, your voice.’ He’s fantastic.”
Two months after popping the question, the Oklahoma native revealed the details of his proposal to Stefani — and revealed that things could have gone wrong. Shelton admitted on The Bobby Bones Show in December 2020, “To be honest with you — and this is scary — I had the ring in the compartment on my truck door for about a week.””I don’t know about you, but stuff constantly falls out of that damn thing on my truck. ‘Man, somebody’s going to hit the jackpot whenever I drop this thing out of my truck,’ I kept thinking. I wanted to keep it there all the time because I didn’t know when the exact, right moment would come. But, thank God, I did not misplace the ring.”
Everything about the year 2021
Stefani appeared on DJ Khaled’s “The First One” podcast in March 2021. She discussed her relationship with Shelton and how he influences her career, revealing that she bounces ideas off him like she used to with her No Doubt bandmates.
On the podcast, she described the challenge of working alone after being used to a team environment.For example: “Yesterday, Blake and I sat down and listened to every song — a lot of songs — and just labeled our favorite stars based on which ones we liked.”. We definitely complement each other.”
In March 2021, the “Wind It Up” singer revealed that her beauty and anti-ageing secret involves her country crooner fiancé. “Blake is the best guy ever. “I look back over the last few years and see pictures of when I first started kissing Blake,” she said in an interview with Stellar at The Daily Telegraph. “And in those photos, I look the best I’ve ever looked in my life.” I must look good in love. That definitely comes through, in my opinion.”
In March 2021, Shelton appeared as a guest host on Today with Hoda & Jenna, revealing that he and Stefani would “hopefully” marry that summer. The country singer continued, “I’m afraid that if she and I wait until November of next year, I’ll be right back into the cycle of The Voice.”. And I’d really like to have plenty of time before and after.”
During a special commemorating The Voice’s tenth anniversary, the country singer stated that his future wife was one of the best benefits he received from participating in the TV show. “People always ask me, ‘What’s the best thing that’s happened to you since you’ve been on The Voice?'” he explained. “Isn’t that a no-brainer?” This is where I met my fiancée. Gwen Stefani is difficult to resist. You know, this iconic rock star in a black minivan to be a coach on The Voice comes here. That was fine with me.”
He also stated that their relationship made filming the reality show more enjoyable because she fuels his competitive instincts. “I love it when she’s here,” he said, adding that if you told him “back in 1996” that the No Doubt frontwoman would become his girlfriend, he “would have laughed you out of the room.” “She brings a very complicated element of competition, especially for me.” But I adore it. I enjoy the challenge. It’s incredible just knowing she’s there and has my back.”
While fans wait for the musicians to marry, Shelton revealed an important wedding reception secret to Jimmy Fallon in May 2021, saying that he and Stefani intend to have their first dance to “If You Leave” from the Pretty in Pink soundtrack. “We’ve discussed it; we both like the song.” We’re both big fans of the ’80s, so why not?” At the time, Shelton stated.
Shelton is still ecstatic about working with Stefani in June 2021.
Shelton said in a June 2021 interview on Apple Music 1: “I’m still more in blown away fan astonished mode when I truly work with her, and I know it should be extremely, like, emotional and personal and this; we haven’t done that many.” They have recorded only four songs together.
And there have been times when she walks out on stage, and if she’s at one of my shows, we’ll have a plan, and we always try to keep it on the DL, and then we’ll start ‘Nobody But You’ or ‘Go Ahead And Break My Heart,’ and then I’ll be singing it,'” Shelton said.”And here I am dying from the time I stand on stage, walk out on stage, until that moment hits, because I know on that set list that when Gwen Stefani walks out here, people are going to [flip] in their seats.” “I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.”
The L.A.M.B. designer documented her bridal shower on Instagram Stories on June 10. “SHE’S GETTING MARRIIIIEEEEED,” she captioned a photo of herself drinking white wine and carrying a wrapped gift.

The couple received their marriage license from the Johnston County District Court Clerk in Oklahoma at the end of June, giving them 10 days to make their marriage legal under Oklahoma law.
Us confirmed on July 5 that the couple married two days earlier in an intimate ceremony on Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch.
During a Today’s episode, Daly, who officiated the couple’s wedding ceremony on July 3, revealed some details about the big day. “They’re an unlikely couple,” he said. Comparable to enjoying a plate of fried chicken with a bottle of champagne. In spite of its unappealing appearance on paper or the menu, it is effective. It’s sophisticated comfort food. And everyone is rooting for it.”
According to the TRL alum, he encouraged the couple to write their own vows, and Shelton chose to present his in the form of a song. According to Daly’s recollection, “Blake starts by saying, ‘Gwen is always criticizing me for not writing enough songs, so I wrote a song. He wrote a song for her and, in the midst of his sobs, performs it for her under the title “Reach the Star.” No one in the room could keep their eyes open. A major high point was reached there.
According to Us Weekly, Stefani’s father walked her down the aisle, and her sons were also present. “Both Blake and Gwen were emotional. Blake was overcome with emotion as he recited his vows to Gwen and saw her in the chapel he built for their love.”
“Happy 2 week anniversary,” Stefani captioned a new photo from their wedding on Instagram on July 18.
While reflecting on her walk down the aisle nearly one month later, Stefani called her wedding to the country crooner “one of the greatest moments of my life.” “It was beyond what I expected,” she exclaimed on the “Tell Me About It With Jade Iovine” podcast, adding that she’s been consumed by “total honeymoon vibes” since the big day.
“I feel so blessed. One of the things you think about a lot in life is that you don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. Still, I feel like my spiritual journey has really guided me towards this place and this place of peace,” she continued” I need to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life””.
When I look at him sleeping, I see the same guy. And he’s honest, consistent, and genuine. It’s what makes him so appealing and why people adore him.”
In front of a sold-out crowd at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater, the country singer jokedly corrected his previous error when introducing his wife, welcoming “Gwen Stefani-Shelton” to the stage before they performed their duet “Happy Anywhere.”
During an episode of the Storme Warren Show on SiriusXM’s The HighwayCause, Shelton discussed his “surprise” wedding song, which he wrote for Stefani on their wedding day. He stated that he intended to release the song because it meant so much.
