The world has watched Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton‘s whirlwind romance since they first debuted as a couple in early 2016. The couple had met two years prior on the set of the singing competition series, The Voice. However, they were married to other people at the time.

The following year, as they were both navigating their way through high-profile divorces, the duo struck up a tight-knight friendship that eventually turned romantic. Since then, they’ve moved in together, and marriage rumors have been swirling around them for years.

It looks like the pair are finally ready to take that next step. On Oct. 27, Shelton shared a gleeful snap of Stefani showing off her engagement ring. He tweeted, “Hey @gwenstefani, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life… I love you. I heard a YES!” Here’s what we know about the stunning piece of jewelry.

Inside Blake Shelton’s proposal to Gwen Stefani

Shelton planned his proposal to Stefani down to the very last little detail. He had previously built Stefani a chapel on their private ranch in Oklahoma because the No Doubt frontwoman is a devout Catholic and he wanted to make her as comfortable as possible in his home state.

Therefore, when the time came, the chapel was the ideal place to propose. “So, he felt that [the chapel] was the perfect place to propose because it has so much meaning to the both of them,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “Gwen loves the chapel so much and she even has a necklace with a charm of the chapel that she wears often.”
