Touted as one of the most adorable celebrity couples, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are gearing up to walk down the aisle.
While their fans continue waiting with bated breath for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s marriage announcement, a source close to the couple revealed that they have already had their dream wedding plan nailed down, according to FlashReporter. Before he proposed to the love of his love, the 44-year-old country singer made a sweet, sentimental gesture.
Stefani’s son Kingston, 14, seems to be a fan of Shelton as a person. Before proposing to Stefani, Shelton ensured he had the approval of the three most important people in the pop singer’s life, her three sons, Kingston, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6. Shelton asked their permission to marry their mother.
The relationship between Blake and the boys had grown from being friendship to serious parental influence, a source told US Weekly. “Blake told her boys that he wanted to propose to her and asked her for permission. Heartwarmingly, the source also says that “her family approves of him very much”. He is an amazing partner and a great additional father for the boys. Gwen is ecstatic. The proposal was a surprise,” an insider said.
Aside from asking the boys for permission to marry their mother, Blake did a myriad of other sweet things to make sure his proposal was special. The couple kept their engagement details under wraps until finally announcing the good news on their social media platforms on Oct. 27. Shelton reportedly proposed to her in a chapel in Oklahoma.

“He originally built the chapel for Gwen because she is a very devout Catholic and he wanted her to feel comfortable during her transition from LA to Oklahoma,” a source told HollywoodLife. She wasn’t in a hurry because she wanted to make sure Blake was ready. It also seems obvious that Shelton knows that Stefani is “old-fashioned”. This is because the source says: “She wanted to wait until she got a real proposal from Blake,” another said of Stefani’s plans to tie the knot with Shelton.
The rumor mill continues to churn out all sorts of speculations surrounding Shelton and Stefani’s wedding, while the couple has remained mum about whether they plan to get married by end of the year, or will wait until the pandemic comes to an end.
