It took a Herculean effort on Blake Shelton’s part to propose to Gwen Stefani. She confessed to dragging her feet without realizing what he had planned.
Gwen nearly canceled her trip to Blake’s farm. She told Kelly Clarkson, (quote) “I was trying to get out of going to Oklahoma because it was getting too complicated with COVID and the family.”
Even on the day of proposal, coordinating schedules became difficult. Blake barely pulled it off. He asked Gwen to help with starting a fire. He told her to grab matches from the cupboard. On the shelf was her engagement ring inside the box. (Billboard)
