Gwen Stefani is still gushing about her engagement to Blake Shelton. The two got engaged in October of this year.
A couple months might have passed but the “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” singer is still on cloud nine.
Sources close to Stefani say that she has been “floating on air,” PEOPLE reports.
“Gwen was amazed and absolutely not aware the proposal was happening,” says the insider. “It was a shining point in her life.”
Gwen Stefani Almost Ruins Engagement Plans
Stefani’s engagement to her boyfriend of five years almost didn’t go as planned. The couple was spending time at their Los Angeles mansion. The No Doubt front-woman says that she was nervous about traveling to Shelton’s Tishomingo, Oklahoma, ranch.
“I was trying to get out of going because it was getting too complicated with COVID and the family,” Stefani told fellow “The Voice” coach on her “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” “I’m like, ‘I think we should just cancel.'”
However, Shelton was able to convince Stefani to stick to the plan and was able to get both of their families together, including the 51-year-old’s kids, for the engagement.
“I walked in and my son was sitting right by this fireplace, and Blake was basically getting down on his knees to do a fire, and he goes, ‘Hey, can you look in that cabinet over there and get me a fire starter?’ So, I opened the cabinet, and there was a ring in a box,” Stefani told Clarkson. “I was like, ‘Ah! What?! Are you serious?!’ Then everybody came running around because they heard us screaming. It was a pretty magical moment.”
Plans for the Wedding
The two are planning a small wedding for next year, and want both of their families to be present. The couple is planning on having the wedding at the same chapel Shelton built and proposed to Gwen Stefani in.
“They were talking about early 2021, but they have decided to wait until they can have a small group of family and friends attend,” says the inside source.
“Gwen is still emotional about the engagement and can’t believe how lucky she is to be with Blake,” says the Stefani source. “She didn’t think the engagement would change her and Blake’s relationship because it felt like they were already married, but it has sparked even more happiness.”
“She can’t wait to be his wife,” the insider adds. “The wedding has given her something amazing to look forward to in the new year.”
