Are Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton on the fast track to a celebrity wedding? According to several recent reports, the Voice couple couldn’t be happier, but could they already be engaged? Earlier this month, a source claimed Gwen Stefani popped the question to Shelton, and he said yes.
In addition to teasing the alleged engagement on the cover of their magazine, Life & Style claimed Gwen Stefani surprised her boyfriend of nearly five months during a barbecue dinner at her home in Los Angeles.
However, despite the alleged country-themed proposal, which would certainly be Shelton’s style, a Gossip Cop report has since confirmed the report as untrue.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton began dating at the end of last year while filming The Voice Season 9. While the couple was spotted together in October and were often flirty on-camera, they didn’t confirm the romance until November 4, when they went public in Nashville at a Country Music Awards after-party.
Although celebrities often keep their romance private — at least at first — Gwen Stefani took a very different route when it came to her relationship with Shelton. In the months since they went public, they have been openly flirting with one another on Twitter and are often photographed together in Los Angeles and in Shelton’s hometown in Oklahoma.
Most recently, Gwen Stefani shared some family moments with Shelton, which included time with her three sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2. As OK! Magazine reported on March 25, Gwen Stefani and her family traveled to Oklahoma earlier this month to celebrate spring break with Shelton. During their trip, she’s shared a number of photos and videos with fans online.
The magazine also revealed that Gwen Stefani’s brother, Todd Stefani, and his wife and children joined them in Oklahoma for even more family fun.

While Gwen Stefani and Shelton aren’t yet engaged, a future wedding and children are still very much possible — especially considering Shelton’s clear bond with Stefani’s kids (he doesn’t have any of his own).
“[Gwen Stefani] thinks of Blake as the biggest blessing,” a source close to the singer told People Magazine weeks ago. “They share both good life experience, like work, and bad ones, like their divorces.”
After Gwen Stefani parted ways with Gavin Rossdale in August of last year, “she was questioning if she would ever meet someone that would accept her boys,” said the source, but Shelton “had no hesitation” when it came to getting to know the boys, according to a second source. In fact, he “loved it.”
And although Gwen Stefani and Shelton are “not putting pressure on themselves” and are “just enjoying life together,” the insider said friends close to the singers see a “long-term future” for the couple — and that may mean a future engagement.
“They seem too perfect for each other for it to just be fluke. For now, they seem happy with their relationship, but Blake is old-fashioned and a future engagement seems very possible.”
In addition to their regular sightings in L.A., Gwen Stefani has also been photographed on the red carpet with her man, and they’ve attended a few events as a couple.
