Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been often surrounded by malicious rumors, from marriage to pregnancy claims. But, a year ago, a tabloid claimed the former No Doubt frontwoman’s parents, allegedly, gave the 43-year-old star permission to propose.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton seem to be perfect for each other. Hence, a lot of fans are already waiting for them to tie the knot. So, what happened to that alleged proposal?
The alleged preparation for the proposal
It has been a year since OK! reported that the country singer is ready to ask for his fellow The Voice judge’s hand for marriage. However, he, allegedly, wanted to have the consent of her parents, Dennis and Patti.
“Gwen is close to her mom and dad, and both their opinions are important to her,” a so-called source said. The insider even added that Miranda Lambert’s ex-husband went out of his way to prove that he’s the right man for the 50-year-old singer-songwriter.
Blake Shelton even followed the traditions of Gwen Stefani’s family, like attending Sunday family dinners. Allegedly, Dennis and Patti are afraid that their daughter’s heart will be once again broken. So they get to know her boyfriend more, and they eventually like him.
“Dennis loves the fact that Blake is a real man,” the tipster continued. “Man who hunts, fishes, and lives on a ranch where he does a lot of his work.” They, too, allegedly, think that they will be a great couple.
Debunking the wrong claims
Gossip Cop admits certain parts of the tabloid’s story are correct like Blake Shelton spends time with Gwen Stefani’s family. But, he never asked for her parents’ permission to either propose or marry her.
As this story came out a year ago, the couple has yet to announce if they’re engaged or getting married. The two even confirmed they haven’t put a ring on it, however. A rep for Gavin Rossdale’s ex-wife also confirmed that there’s no truth to this tale.
A more reputable insider even explained why Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani couldn’t tie the knot yet. “Blake was very serious about Gwen right from the start,” a tipster told People. “Early on, he thought about proposing.”
However, being a Roman Catholic, Gwen Stefani is eyeing to have a church ceremony with Blake Shelton. She was once married to Gavin Rossdale, which might have got in their way, although they’ve divorced. As they believed they already found the one in each other, the source added that they’re heading “toward marriage.”
