In 2018, Shelton echoed Stefani’s story. “When I was going through my divorce and hitting rock bottom, like everyone does when they go through something so devastating, it was a miracle that I met someone who was going through the exact same thing as me. at the same time. time, “he said during his Sunday TODAY appearance with Willie Geist.
After dating for five years, Shelton proposed to Stefani in October 2020, announcing their exciting news on Instagram. “@gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020,” Shelton wrote. “And the rest of my life. I love you. I heard a YES!”
Shelton gave more details on how the proposal came about last December, sharing that the most important aspect was to make sure Stefani’s three sons – Kingston, Zuma and Apollo – were present for the occasion. memorable.

[as well as our siblings]Shelton said during his appearance on The Bobby Bones Show. “We have a group that we get together on. [most holidays] with these two parts of our extended family, and it has been like that for years. I wanted everyone to be there for the moment. I didn’t want to take her or do anything private away from the kids. I felt like it was important for the kids to be a part of this moment, so that’s what I did. “
After their engagement, a source told ET that Stefani was keen to take her relationship with Shelton to the next level. “Gwen has been ready to get married for a long time and Blake knew it was the perfect time,” the source said. “Blake was the one who wanted to take it easy at first, but recently he decided it was time.”
During Stefani’s appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers in April, she said she wanted to keep their marriage intimate.
“We keep it very simple. Really simple,” she noted. “I think the guest list won’t have a lot of musicians. It will be like my mom and dad. It will literally just be family. We look forward to that, though.”
“It’s going to be fun,” Stefani continued. “We’re going to make it really fun, but it won’t be a big [event]. It’s not like the queen and the king are getting married or anything like that. “
Shelton revealed in May what the couple had planned for their first dance as husband and wife.
“It’s ‘If You Leave’ from the Pretty In Pink soundtrack,” he said when appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. “We talked about it. We both love the song. We’re both 80s fans, why not? Don’t you think that would be a good song, though? We literally talked about it.”
There had been clear signs that the wedding was coming. In June, Stefani celebrated an intimate bridal shower with her family and ET confirmed in July that they had filed for their marriage license in Oklahoma. In Oklahoma, a marriage license expires 10 days after it is issued.
In March, Shelton said he “absolutely” imagined himself living a simpler life with Stefani one day out of the limelight while co-hosting NBC News Today With Hoda & Jenna as a guest.
“I hope it’s not too far. Ten years seems way too long to me,” he said. “I would love to see that sooner rather than later. I mean, we’ve both pushed to the limit when it comes to our careers, our tours and now television. We’ve been fortunate enough to accomplish a lot of things, but hopefully at some point we get the chance to live a life. And I think we’re both ready for that, honestly. “
“The older I get, the more I feel like I’m starting to become a bit of a hermit,” he continued. “You know, and just passing things on.”
