Gwen Stefani, 51, and Blake Shelton, 44, are undoubtedly a music super couple! The now-fiancé‘s met after working together on The Voice over five years ago, with Blake Shelton popping the question in Oct. 2020.
While fans were thrilled to see the pair finally engaged, it turns out the Red River Blue singer had his reasons for waiting before popping the question. She thinks in a romantic way when you fall in love so hard and so unexpectedly and so late in your life, you want to marry your couple, like now! That’s the first romantic reaction, Gwen Stefani confessed.
She explained that she was like,“Let’s go get married, you know?” But it all came down to timing and keeping in mind their blended family: as Gwen Stefani explained, the time of their meeting was “weird” as she was divorcing ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, 55, while Blake Shelton had recently split from ex-wife Miranda Lambert, 37.
The former No Doubt member shares three kids with Gavin Rossdale: Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6. They had a lot to consider as there were a lot of people involved, adding that their respective splits were also tough.
You just don’t see things that are right around the corner after such devastation, Gwen Stefani explained. They both had “healing to do.” About Blake Shelton, she said he’s one of the most generous human beings and down to earth. He’s so gifted and so unique and talented and he really is just her best friend.
