As Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton announce engagement, we look at five of their cutest moments as a couple
The couple has been in public view for the past five years and has had several adorable moments, making fans fall in love with them every time around
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are engaged. Stefani took to Instagram on Tuesday, October 27, and shared a photo of the couple kissing, along with the caption: “@blakeshelton yes please!” followed by a diamond ring emoji. As per E! News, Stefani’s representatives confirmed that the duo got engaged the weekend of October 17 in Oklahoma. On Stefani’s Instagram, John Legend commented, “AMAZING! Congratulations to you both!!” Dua Lipa wrote, “I guess our little interview aged well!!!!!! Congratulations!!! Best news.” Lipa’s comment was in reference to when she was filling in for Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show, and asked Stefani, "So I heard that you've been spending quarantine with your husband Blake Shelton at the ranch in Oklahoma. Who else was with you? How was that?" Stefani replied, "Um, well… he's not my husband, but that sounded cool when you said it."
Stefani and Shelton began dating in November 2015 after meeting on the set of ‘The Voice’. In an interview with Billboard, Shelton recalled falling head over heels for the singer. He said, “I won't forget that day, I looked over at Gwen -- who I didn't really know -- and she had these huge tears in her eyes,” adding, “I thought it was going to be another one of those 'things are going to be OK' talks. She said, 'I'm going through something very similar to what you're going through. I understand. And I hate it.”
Stefani has three children -- Kingston Rossdale, Zuma Rossdale, and Apollo Rossdale -- from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale. Shelton was previously married to Miranda Lambert. The two finalized their divorce in the summer of 2015. The couple has been in public view for the past five years and has had several adorable moments, making fans fall in love with them every time around. Here are five of their cutest moments:
Shelton in cowboy hat in Instagram throwback
Last year in January, Stefani posted a throwback photo of Blake from the early 2000s, when he had long, curly dark hair, and had donned a cowboy hat. Sure they are always gushing about each other on social media, but this cute trolling is also fun to watch. And fans loved it. As much as they made fun of Shelton’s ridiculously cowboy look, they also adored the two and their banter.
Holiday duet video
In 2018, Shelton and Stefani released a video for their holiday duet ‘You Make It Feel Like Christmas’. The video, as gooey and saccharine as Hallmark films, shows the two in many Holiday themes - from hauling a huge Christmas tree in the back of their convertible to them making dinner together and cozying up on the couch. The retro-looking video was an adorable one, and of course, fans gushed over what a gorgeous couple the two talented musicians make.

Shelton gushing over Stefani at People's Choice Awards
In November 2018, during the People’s Choice Awards, Shelton and ‘The Voice’ host Carson Daly took the stage to accept the "Best competition show of 2018" award. Shelton, on stage, called Stefani his “all-time favorite coach,” telling the crowd how much he loves her. Daly then invited Stefani to join them, who walked up to the podium and asked, “What am I doing?” Daly then joked, “Who would have thought that this country artist could land one of my oldest friends in the music business?” Stefani then said, “I’m so excited to be with Blake Shelton.” The pair were later caught sharing a kiss after exiting the stage.
Stefani and her sons celebrate Shelton’s birthday
In June 2019, when Shelton turned 43, Stefani honored the occasion with an adorable Instagram post about the celebration. "Happy b day to my favorite human!!! Can’t believe your mine," she wrote, saying that she was so "lucky" and Blake was the "greatest guy" she knew. And she wasn’t the only one. Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, Stefani’s kids accompanied the couple to the Shedd Aquarium for a fun-filled family adventure. The boys also surprised Blake with sweet messages written on balloons, which Stafani showed off on her Instagram story.
When Shelton and Stefani walked the Red Carpet with her sons
In 2019, while attending the ‘UglyDolls’ premiere in Los Angeles, the couple arrived as a full family, along with Stafani’s three sons. In their red carpet debut, the crew of five posed for pictures outside the movie theater, looking like the perfect family.
