COUNTRY music star Blake Shelton proposed to longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani and shared the moment via social media on Tuesday.
The musician gave her a giant oval diamond ring and shut down rumors that they had split as fans thought they were having relationship problems.
When did Blake Shelton propose to Gwen Stefani?
Blake, 44, popped the question to Gwen, 51, over the weekend in Oklahoma, a source close to the pair told People magazine.
He proposed in what appeared to be in a stone castle with a stained glass window.
The singer announced their engagement as she flashed her blinged-out hand while sharing a kiss with the country star.
She also added the caption: "Yes, please!"
Blake shared the same picture in his social media accounts and wrote: "Hey Gwen, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!"
Where did they meet?
Gwen and Blake met on the set of The Voice back in 2015 and bonded over their recent divorces at the time.
"When you're where she and I were, and you just feel so betrayed and on bottom, this bond that we formed when we found out what each other were going through, it's still there," Shelton previously told People.
Blake divorced Miranda Lambert in 2015 and Gwen finalized her divorce with ex Gavin Rossdale in 2016.
Why did people think they had broken up?
Rumors of the couple splitting up surfaced online when Gwen admitted that Blake was in Oklahoma while she was in Los Angeles.
“[This] is the first time we’ve been apart in six months,” she confessed to OK! magazine.
They spent a lot of time together on Blake’s Oklahoma ranch, along with her three sons – Kingston, 14, Zuma, 14, and Apollo, 6 – that she shares with ex Gavin.
Gwen said it was nice “to be able to pause for a minute and be there with the boys and be in Oklahoma [because] he really has a stunning ranch.”
Eventually, they all went back to Los Angeles, but sources revealed they were fighting over where to live because Blake loves Oklahoma and she loves the West Coast.
Last month, a source told Us Weekly that Gwen and Blake "feel suffocated and stressed [and] they’re both stretched to the limit" after they bought a mansion in Encino, California, for about $13million in May.
Now, he's spending a little time at his ranch without her.
Earlier this month, Blake worked to shut down any split rumors with a sweet post for Gwen's 51st birthday.
