Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been faced with engagement rumors for months, and at one point, Gwen Stefani was seen wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. However, when it comes to plans to take the next step in their relationship, Stefani recently confirmed she and Shelton are taking things slow.
During an interview on 94.7 Fresh FM's The Tommy Show on Wednesday, Gwen Stefani was asked if an engagement to Shelton was in her future.
"Let's just take it one day at a time," Gwen Stefani said, according to a report by People Magazine on June 1. "Everything's crazy right now so no, absolutely not."

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton began dating at the end of the year while filming the ninth season of The Voice. While Stefani left her coaching role after the season wrapped, she and Shelton reunited on The Voice Season 10 when she was featured as a mentor and again when they debuted their duet, "Go Ahead and Break My Heart."
Since their relationship began, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have consistently been the target of rumors of a wedding, pregnancies, and everything in between. Stefani, for one, is amused by all the banter.
"Can you imagine the amount of gossip-y, weird stories people make up?" Gwen Stefani replied after the radio host asked her if fans would be seeing an engagement ring during the upcoming season of The Voice.
"To me, it makes me laugh every day. I actually do Google my name just so I can see the next one that's gonna happen, because it's gotten so out of control," Gwen Stefani continued. "The best part about it is it's hilarious; the worst part about it is that some people actually believe that stuff like that is what's funny."

Also on June 1, a source spoke to Us Weekly about Gwen Stefani's potential plans for children.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton "talk openly about their future together," a Stefani family source revealed. "They say things like, 'When we get married...' all the time."
Gwen Stefani "is totally smitten and wants to have a baby with Blake," added a Stefani friend. "Gwen is trying to get pregnant."
While the source claimed Gwen Stefani, 46, was ready to have a child with Blake Shelton, 39, the mother of three is currently quite busy promoting her new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and preparing to go on tour. Meanwhile, Shelton's schedule is just as hectic. Not only is he preparing to begin filming on The Voice Season 11, he's also promoting his own album, If I'm Honest, which was released last month.
Either way, according to the source, Shelton has reportedly been dreaming of fatherhood for years, and apparently, his ex-wife Miranda Lambert's alleged refusal to start a family was a "factor" in their 2015 divorce.
"[Gwen Stefani] says she wants to give Blake his own kid," the insider continued. "She wants a girl!"
Currently, Gwen Stefani is mom to her three sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, from her marriage to Gavin Rossdale, and throughout her relationship with Shelton, he has grown "closer and closer" to the boys.
"The boys love him," the source said. "Blake always wanted a family, and it's looking like he got one."
Gwen Stefani did not address Us Weekly's pregnancy report during her appearance on The Tommy Show, nor has she addressed the rumor with any other outlet.
