Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani Celebrate Engagement Anniversary With Adorable Proposal Video


One of the best parts of watching NBC's The Voice is watching Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's relationship. While pairing might have seemed odd at fist, we love watching their love story and we're totally rooting for the musical couple.

The two met for the first time on the set of The Voice. Stefani had just embarked on a solo career from her band, No Doubt, and joined fellow Voice coaches Shelton, Adam Levine, and Pharrell Williams on Season 7. She had also just had a baby with her husband Gavin Rossdale, so she wasn't really able to bond with her costars. Any downtime was spent on baby duty.

Everything changed during Season 8 in the summer of 2015 when both Shelton and Stefani went through divorces. Shelton ended his four-year marriage with Miranda Lambert. Stefani ended her 13-year marriage with Rossdale that resulted in three sons.

The pair leaned on each other during that time and found a real connection. Big fans of Stefani probably never would have dreamed she'd end up with a country singer, but the pair seems pretty perfect. By November of 2015, Shelton and Stefani were officially a couple.

The following year, the couple made their big red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. Shelton told Billboard that Gwen saved him.

"Gwen saved my life. Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can't even imagine the similarities in our divorces."

A couple of years later, the couple is still going strong when Shelton lands the coveted title of People's Sexiest Man Alive. The country star credited Stefani for convincing him to accept the honor.


"She goes, 'Listen to me, you're going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don't take this gift and just live in the moment."

The Oklahoma native has also really hit it off with Stefani's sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.  He's stepped into the unofficial "stepdad" role seamlessly. The couple currently splits time between Shelton's Oklahoma ranch and California where the boys are based and of course...where The Voice is filmed.

Stefani really shocked fans during their relationship because she started to get into country music! The couple has collaborated multiple times over the years and as much as it doesn't make sense...her pop voice really works opposite Shelton's country twang. While it's hard to imagine her singing anything outside of her classics like "Hollaback Girl" it's hard to argue with the adorable Christmas music video Gwen and Blake released in 2019.

One Year Engagement Anniversary!

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have pretty much made us all fall in love with their adorable love story! The couple officially married on Saturday, July 3 at Shelton's Oklahoma ranch, Page Six reports. Before the big day, TMZ has reported that, according to the Johnston County Court Clerk, Shelton and Stefani applied for their marriage license on Tuesday, June 29 in Oklahoma.


The celebrity couple has still found ways to show their fans a little peek into their love life, this time allowing us to celebrate their first engagement anniversary with them! Stefani took to Instagram to share a photo and several videos of her reaction to the country singer's proposal. She captioned the post, "One year ago today?! 🙏🏻October 17th 2020 we got engaged! @blakeshelton I love you!"

One of the special videos shows Shelton kissing the singer on the cheek as she shows off her engagement ring, saying, "Look! We just got engaged." As expected, Stefani's ring is gorgeous as ever as both celebrities are smiling from ear to ear!

Just earlier this year, Stefani went on to appear on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" where she revealed that she didn't have any idea that Shelton would propose despise dating for five years. She stated, "Wasn't expecting it at the moment that it happened, at all. Didn't have any idea, nobody knew. I think he had told my dad on my birthday about two weeks earlier, and I gotta tell you, I was sorta like, 'What's happening with us?'"
