Are Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton Engaged? Here’s Everything We Know About Their Relationship
When it comes to Hollywood couples, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are as cheesy as it gets (in the best way possible).
In honor of the No Doubt singer’s 50th birthday, we’re taking a look back at all the moments that led to their super public romance. From how they met to whether Stefani and Shelton are engaged, keep reading for everything you need to know about their relationship.
1. Are Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton Engaged?
The answer is no, but we highly anticipate a proposal in our near future. Not only have they been dating for four years, but they’ve also talked about the possibility of a future wedding.
In May 2019, Ellen DeGeneres even gifted Shelton a “countdown to a proposal” clock, featuring his and Stefani’s faces. The daytime host gave a similar present to Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, who are now happily engaged.
2. How did they meet?
The couple met on the set of The Voice in 2014 when Stefani replaced Christina Aguilera as a coach during her maternity leave. However, things didn’t turn romantic until 2015 when Shelton finalized his divorce with Miranda Lambert.
3. When did they start dating?
All signs point to October 2015 when Stefani and Shelton were spotted showing PDA at Maroon 5’s Halloween party, according to E! News.
4. When was their first official public appearance?
Gwen and Blake first walked the red carpet as a couple in February 2016 when they attended Vanity Fair’s Oscar after-party. The “Hollaback Girl” singer wore a sheer red gown by Yanina Couture, while the country crooner opted for a black jacket, jeans and cowboy boots. (Natch.)
5. Are they in love?
Oh, yes. And they aren’t afraid to show it. Shelton recently celebrated Stefani’s 50th birthday on Twitter and wrote a mushy tribute that hints at an impending proposal.
“Happy Birthday @gwenstefani!!!! I love you so much it’s actually stupid… And possibly illegal in the state of California,” it read.
6. Do they have any children?
While Shelton doesn’t have any biological kids, the same can’t be said for Stefani. She shares three children with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale: Kingston (13), Zuma (11) and Apollo (5).
Back in April 2019, Stefani turned the world premiere of Ugly Dolls into a family affair when she brought her three sons, along with her famous boyfriend. (Picture above.)
7. What's next for the happy couple?
Apart from the elephant in the room (cough, engagement, cough), they’re enjoying their time together. As they approach their upcoming fourth anniversary in November, Shelton can’t believe how fast time is flying.
“It’s actually shocking that it has already been that long,” he told People magazine. “It’s kind of a blur. It still feels like it’s pretty new to me. I guess it is, relatively. Four years isn’t forever, but man, it seems like it just happened in no time.”
