The couple announced their engagement after five years of dating in October 2020. Alongside an Instagram photo of Gwen showing off her stunning engagement ring, she wrote, "@blakeshelton yes please!" Blake shared the same photo on his Instagram account, writing, "Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020 . . . And the rest of my life . . . I love you. I heard a YES!"
In January, Gwen opened up about Blake's proposal to Jimmy Fallon, saying, "It was actually pretty magical." Gwen admitted that she was completely taken by surprise when Blake popped the question at their ranch in Oklahoma, adding, "We ended up making it all happen, and we were all here at the ranch."
