Blake Shelton Reportedly Asked Gwen Stefani's Sons For Permission Before Proposing

Ahh, romance!

It's nice watching celebrities fall in love because it reminds us of the glory days! Maybe our partners didn't propose with million dollar rings or book out an entire football stadium or even put on a clean pair of pants first, but it sure felt romantic at the time.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's engagement almost definitely included a clean pair of pants.

Blake and Gwen have been together since 2015.

These two lovebirds met and fell in love while judges on The Voice, which is as close to a modern day fairy tale as we're going to get.

Both had been married before, with Gwen having three sons from her marriage to Gavin Rossdale.

On October 27th, they announced they were engaged!

"Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020... And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!" Blake wrote.

Isn't that so romantic? Certainly more romantic than thanking her for letting him know he had some popcorn stuck in his beard... not that that's the last thing I was thanked for in my house.

Now, Blake is a good ol' fashioned country boy, so it shouldn't be surprising that his version of romance is pretty traditional!

According to UsWeekly Blake even made sure to ask Gwen's father for permission before proposing to his daughter!

Now, this is a tradition that isn't strictly necessary anymore (I'll marry who I like, thank you very much!) but it certainly is sweet for Blake to do! He's a true gentleman!

It turns out that Blake might be even MORE of a gentleman than we thought!

A new source is saying that in addition to asking her dad's permission, he also asked her three sons' permission!

That just might be the sweetest thing I've ever heard, and must've made those boys feel like part of the process!

Blake told her boys that he wanted to propose and asked their permission," the source says.

"Her family very much approves of him. He's an amazing partner and a great extra dad to the boys. Gwen is ecstatic. The proposal was a surprise," they said.

You couldn't ask for a more romantic or traditional way to propose!

Let's recap: not only is Blake Shelton tall, handsome, talented, and one of the winners of People's Sexiest Man Alive, he's also incredibly romantic.

It might be too late for many of our husbands to try to live up to him in terms of proposal, but maybe if they keep hearing about what a romantic, traditional, handsome, and tall guy he is, they just might get the hint!
