Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been together for five years that have included lip-sync battles, official duets, and an off-and-on co-starring gig on The Voice. Marriage has seemed like it's been a long-time coming for the couple, and it is now officially, and finally, on the horizon with Shelton having recently proposed to Stefani, who obviously said yes to the popped question. As it happens, Shelton went about securing his fiancé's hand in marriage in quite the cute and old-fashioned way.

Blake Shelton made sure to go the extra mile with his proposal, which had significant meaning to Gwen Stefani, who is back in the coach's chair in the current season of The Voice. according to an anonymous source. According to US Weekly, a source close to the couple shared the detail that further won Stefani over, as well as tidbit about that big blinging engagement ring.

Blake had the ring custom-designed and asked permission from her dad before asking Gwen. It meant so much to Gwen that Blake was so traditional about it.

How romantic! Blake Shelton went about getting the permission of his future father-in-law before proposing to Gwen Stefani herself, which is incredibly sweet in my opinion. Shelton is clearly all-in on this romance. Not only did reaching out to Stefani’s father cement his blessing within that family, but it also helps to set a good example as he becomes a stepfather for Stefani's three sons from her previous marriage with Gavin Rossdale. Shelton had previously acknowledged that he needed to be more aware of what he says and how he acts in front of the aforementioned boys.

Gwen Stefani’s kids are clearly fans of their mom’s fiancé, and have even paid tribute to Blake Shelton’s bad tattoo. If those are not the actions of a family in the making, I do not know what is.

As for the custom ring, it sounds like Shelton put in the extra effort to make it special. US Weekly reported Brilliant Earth’s Kathryn Money assessment that the engagement ring has a six-prong setting with a startling six-carat solitaire diamond. The setting that the diamond resides in is no-less spectacular, with a white gold or platinum ban. Are you wondering how much such a ritzy engagement ring set Blake Shelton back? Brace yourself. On Gwen Stefani’s ring finger now sits an adornment that’s estimated worth hovers above $500,000. To think that there had been rumors Shelton and Stefani had called off their wedding!

It seems as though things are going great between the couple. Fans will have to keep their senses sharp to spot if Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton sneak in more shared sweet moments on The Voice. They did last year, and now that they are engaged, I would expect them to be “louder” than ever with their affection.

Reports also indicate that the couple could get married before the end of 2020, despite there not being very much of it left. It sounds as though Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are ready for married life. It will be Stefani’s second marriage after her divorce from Gavin Rossdale, and Shelton’s third following his split with fellow country singer Miranda Lambert (who is now re-married).

A couple of years ago, Miranda Lambert shut down an interview after she got asked questions about Gwen Stefani. Cut to 2020, and Shelton is merrily engaged to an equally ecstatic Stefani. It sounds like it could be happily ever after for the couple. Stay tuned to see the engaged couple work to bring the next musical superstar to the forefront.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have had much to celebrate this season on The Voice, a show that is near and dear to their hearts, considering they met on the set. New episodes of Season 19 air on both Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, and stay tuned to CinemaBlend for all the 2020 Fall TV premieres coming soon.
