Blake Shelton Is About to Propose to Gwen Stefani, According to a Close Source
As their romance continues to heat up, fans have been anticipating engagement or wedding news. Though the couple generally keeps quiet about their relationship, there are rampant rumors that Shelton will propose any minute now.
A contestant on The Voice just confirmed the speculation in an interview, saying that Shelton could pop the question at any moment.
What Rose Short said about Blake Shelton’s potential plans to propose
On Nov. 25, Us Weekly caught up with singer Rose Short, who told the outlet that a proposal is “coming.”
“Let me tell you something: it’s coming. They had a moment,” Short said.
The contestant pointed to a behind-the-scenes moment that she said proves Shelton is ready to take that next step. “We were backstage getting ready and she was getting her makeup done. He stopped and it was like — so much going on that nobody saw it but me — but he was standing there and he looked at her like he was so proud. So it’s gonna happen,” Short continued.
“He’s smitten by her. He’s going to ask,” Short added. “He is in love with that lady. You could see it all over him.”
It’s not the first time someone has said such a thing. A source told PageSix in October: “It was clear within a few months of Gwen and Blake becoming a couple that this was for keeps, it’s now just a matter of when and where. We’re all expecting a wedding soon. I don’t think there will be a big engagement, but they will have an intimate wedding — I would say within the year they’ll be married.”
How long have Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani been together?
Shelton and Stefani have dated since late 2015. They met on the set of The Voice and went public with their romance in November of 2015, shortly after Shelton split from Miranda Lambert and Stefani broke up with Gavin Rossdale. (Shelton does not have any children; Stefani shares three with Rossdale: Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.)
It’s been more than four years since then, and they appear to be doing better than ever. According to Entertainment Tonight, they even bought a house together in August.
Have Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani said anything about getting engaged?
Shelton opened up to Entertainment Tonight in June about their relationship and whether they intend on taking the next step, saying, “Obviously, that’s gotta lead somewhere, but I promise you, we won’t break the news in any of the grocery store trash magazines. When it happens, you’ll hear about it from somebody like you. Maybe even you, exclusively. You’re credible. You’re incredible, and you’re credible.”
Stefani later sparked engagement rumors after she wore a diamond ring on that finger to the People’s Choice Awards on Nov. 10. But she eventually pushed back on the speculation.
“It might be a real ring — a real diamond — but it’s not a wedding ring, no. It actually doesn’t fit over the glove on [the right] hand so I put it on this hand. But it looks good, right?” Stefani told E! News. “When I have something to say, I’ll say it,” she added.
Well then. We guess you’ll have to stay tuned for updates.
