Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been dating for over three years, so it’s safe to say they know quite a bit about each other, but just in case there was any question, Gwen has made it clear on how one ritual will take place when it’s time.
Let’s back up.
Blake recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and during his visit, Ellen gifted him with a clock to give to Gwen that would remind him that time was ticking on his proposing to his longtime girlfriend. She also said that she had gifted Jennifer Lopez with the same type of clock to give to her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez and, a week later, A-Rod popped the question.
But Blake picked up on something: If Ellen gave J-Lo a clock to give A-Rod so he would propose, and then she gave Blake a clock to give to Gwen…so WHO would propose? “So you’re saying there’s a chance she’s going to ask me to marry her with this clock,” he asked.
Turns out Blake probably shouldn’t hold his breath.
Prior to the May 6 episode of The Voice he spoke with Entertainment Tonight and said that Gwen knew about the clock. “She goes, ‘You know this is not how this is going to work,’” he said.
Of course, we’d all love to see this amazing couple tie the knot, but more than that, we just want them to be happy. And with both having been married before and Gwen’s children involved, it’s easy to understand why they’re taking the time.
