Shelton apparently proposed early Tuesday, based on the time of Stefani’s Instagram post celebrating the engagement:
Shelton posted a tweet with the same photo:
The couple met on the NBC series “The Voice” in 2014, and started dating the next year. Stefani admitted to Ellen DeGeneres in 2015 that she was unfamiliar with Shelton until they started working on the singing competition.
Shelton had been married twice before. His last marriage to country singer Miranda Lambert ended in 2015, after he met Stefani.
The public announcement of the engagement may make things less awkward for the couple. Many people had already assumed they were married ― including singer Dua Lipa.
Back in August, while she was guest-hosting Jimmy Kimmel’s show, Lipa and Stefani had an awkward exchange about the state of Stefani’s relationship with Shelton.
“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?” the “Physical” singer said.
“Um. Well, he’s not my husband, but that sounded cool when you said it,” Stefani quickly replied.
Well, now there’s no doubt.
