Page Six reported that Shelton, 44, and Stefani, 51, have been dating since they met while acting as coaches on “The Voice” in 2015. That year saw them both end marriage to famous performers, with Shelton divorcing country music singer Miranda Lambert and Stefani splitting up from singer Gavin Rossdale.

Stefani had told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in April of 2019 that she would love to marry Shelton.

“I love weddings, the kids love him,” she said at the time. “We love him. Everybody loves him. He’s lovable … I think about it all the time.”

News of the engagement will come as very good news to fans of the couple given the fact that reports have been circulating in recent weeks that they had been going through a rough patch in their relationship. Friends of Stefani recently claimed that the couple has been having “arguments” over “where to live and, especially, politics.”

Stefani and her three young sons had spent months of quarantine amidst the coronavirus pandemic at Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma. She said that it was nice “to be able to pause for a minute and be there with the boys and be in Oklahoma [because] he really has a stunning ranch.”

While everything appears to have gone well during their time on the ranch, things reportedly went downhill when they all went back to Los Angeles, California. It was then that fights began over where they should live, as Shelton loves Oklahoma while Stefani loves Los Angeles.

“Gwen and Blake are totally different. A fish can fall in love with a bird, but where will they make a home?” a source close to Stefani said. “They are great when they are together alone but whenever they are around his friends or her friends, it never ends well.”

“One of the reasons these two are still not married after five years together is because they can’t even agree if they should get married in his beloved Oklahoma or her home of Los Angeles,” the insider added.

We’re glad to see that Stefani and Shelton seem to have worked through these issues!
