The source who revealed that the ring was custom made, also shares something exceptional about the entire proposal. The insider said Blake Shelton asked permission from Gwen Stefani’s dad, Dennis Stefani, before popping the question. The source added, “It meant so much to Gwen that Blake was so traditional about it.”
Talking about the proposal, a source close to the couple told HollywoodLife, “Blake built a beautiful chapel for Gwen on his property in Oklahoma and he felt it would be really special to propose there.” Talking about how the chapel came to be, the insider said, “He (Blake) originally built the chapel for Gwen because she is a very devout Catholic and he wanted to make her feel comfortable with her transition from LA to Oklahoma. Her faith is incredibly important to her and Blake knows that.”
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton started dating in the fall of 2015. The couple has been quarantining for months now at Blake’s country property in Oklahoma due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gwen’s three children have also stayed with the couple during this time.
