Before Blake Shelton got down on one knee at his Tishomingo, Oklahoma, ranch to propose to longtime love Gwen Stefani last month, he made sure to first get approval from three very important people: her sons Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6.
“Blake told her boys that he wanted to propose and asked their permission,” a source close to Stefani says. “Her family very much approves of him. He’s an amazing partner and a great extra dad to the boys. Gwen is ecstatic. The proposal was a surprise.”
Though the country star, 44, and No Doubt rocker, 51, kept their long-awaited news private for several days, the source says the couple were “very excited” to share it with the world on Oct. 27, when they posted a joyful joint announcement showing off the ring on Instagram.
“Yes please,” Stefani simply captioned her post, while Shelton wrote, “Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020 and the rest of my life. I love you. I heard a YES!”
