Some details have emerged about Blake Shelton’s marriage proposal to Gwen Stefani from a “source” who talked with ET.

The source told ET, “Blake is very close to Gwen’s boys. They talked it through and Blake made sure they were part of the excitement! Blake had a custom-made engagement ring. He knows the designer and has used them in the past to make bracelets for Gwen.”

The source also shares that Shelton made sure to get approval from Stefani’s father before popping the question. They said, “Blake’s plan to propose to Gwen began by asking her father for her hand in marriage. Gwen is very traditional so he truly felt that asking her father for approval was the proper thing to do and her father adores Blake. Gwen has been ready to tie the knot for a long time and Blake knew this was the perfect time.”

Shelton proposed to Stefani the weekend of October 17 in Oklahoma. The source noted, “Blake has been the one who wanted to take it slow in the beginning but recently he decided it was time. During the pandemic, they’ve had lots of downtime together and he truly saw the importance of spending life with the person you love. Gwen takes marriage very seriously and was disappointed that her first marriage [to Gavin Rossdale] didn’t work out. She wasn’t in a hurry because she wanted to ensure Blake was ready.”
