Romance is in the air for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, but does Blake also want to make Feb. 14 their engagement anniversary? An insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY if he’s planning to pop the question.
It’s clear as day that Blake Shelton, 39, is head over heels for his sweetheart Gwen Stefani, 46. So, is he considering using the most romantic day of the year as an opportunity to pop the question? HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that the idea has crossed his mind. But, will he pull the trigger? We have the answer, here!
“Blake and Gwen are really going strong and getting engaged is definitely a real thing that has been talked about, but Blake wants to make it perfect and make the day special,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He thought that he would propose on Valentine’s Day but then talked himself out of it because he thought it would be too cheesy and obvious to do it on that day. He would much rather do it at another time to make that date their own special day. He’s thinking of pulling the trigger on their engagement in the summer around his birthday. It’s definitely on his mind a lot.”
Unfortunately for the happy couple, their long-awaited engagement might not even happen then if Gwen’s ex Gavin Rossdale, 50, has anything to say about it. The Bush frontman is reportedly dragging his feet with the pair’s divorce proceedings — a tactic that only appears to have only fueled Gwen and Blake’s desire to tie the knot “[Gwen]’s desperately in love with Blake and wants to start a new life with him, but she can’t until the divorce is final,” an insider told InTouch on Feb. 3. “This has turned into an all-out war with Gwen’s ex — and both Gwen and Blake feel like they’re under siege.”
Gavin is is said to be dragging things out for financial reasons, with hopes of getting spousal support from his wife of 13 years, who he shares three kids with. “The war is going to get uglier,” the mag’s source explains. “She wants a life with Blake. This relationship with him is a huge turning point in Gwen’s life. But Gavin is standing in her way. Gwen’s friends are very, very worried about her mental and emotional well-being right now.” How awful!
Try as he might though, Gavin’s tactics have only continued to bring Gwen and Blake closer together. “Blake loves Gwen more than anything and he’s very protective,” the source added. “He hates that Gavin gets under her skin. Some guys would run the other way in this kind of situation. But seeing how it was getting to her, he recently made a surprising decision — to marry Gwen come hell or high water.”
For now though, it looks like the couple’s wedding may still be a bit farther down the road. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing what romantic surprise Blake actually has in store for Gwen come V-Day. Knowing what a diehard romantic he is, we’re sure it’s going to something extra special!
