Gwen Stefani shared how Blake Shelton’s wedding proposal went when she appeared on The Tonight Show this week.
Gwen told Jimmy Fallon during her video interview, “It was pretty magical. I 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.”
Stefani did say that at the time, she was “sort of [wondering] like, ‘What’s happening with us?’ It was on my mind, like, we’ve been together a long time now. What’s going on? I was in that place in my head.”
She added, “We also had this trip planned to come to Oklahoma, and it was like, ‘Maybe we should cancel the trip, this is getting too hard.’ Everybody has to get tested, and everyone was on edge … all the plans — you can’t make plans anymore! Anyways, we were this close to canceling the trip, but we ended up making it all happen. We were all here at the ranch, and basically, it happened.”
Stefani shared that the proposal was news to everyone, saying, “Nobody knew it was gonna happen. Blake, meanwhile, had this ring in the side of his truck. And when I say the side of his truck, like, his truck is disgusting. It has things falling out, equipment — total rugged man stuff, like mud. … A lot of junk in it, and dirt.”
Meanwhile, Gwen’s brother Todd was as she shared, “trying to cook a stew at home, so he was like, ‘We gotta get back, it’s gonna burn!’ And my son was like, ‘I gotta go to the bathroom!’ Nobody wanted to be there. And out of nowhere, [Blake] has this ring that’s in a cabinet when I opened it. He’s like, ‘Oh, get the fire starter.’ I open the cabinet, and there’s this ring there, and I’m like, ‘Are you serious?!’ It was pretty, like, what? And we both start bawling; everyone was in shock.”
