Blake Shelton is ‘ready’ to marry Gwen Stefani ‘very soon’ after proposing with a ‘$500k custom-designed ring’

BLAKE Shelton is "ready to be married" to fiance Gwen Stefani, with pals close to the singers believing they could walk down the aisle by the end of the year.

Blake dropped to one knee earlier in October and the pair revealed their happy news on Tuesday, with Gwen announcing their engagement as she flashed her diamond ring while sharing a kiss with the country star.

Now, sources close to the country star have shared that "Blake is just ready to be married and wants it to happen very soon."

Speaking to Us Weekly, the insider added: "Don’t be surprised if it happens by the end of the year."

Blake, 44, had custom-designed a $500,000 ring for the No Doubt singer, and "Blake had asked permission from her dad before asking Gwen."

The proposal was also revealed more traditional than first thought, with Blake getting "down on one knee in his native Oklahoma."

The engagement come after the pair had to shut down rumors that they had split as they cuddled together while celebrating their win at the 2020 CMT Music Awards.

The Voice coaches looked loved-up as they toasted to their Best Collaborative Video gong for their duet, Nobody But You.

The rumors began when the No Doubt singer admitted that Blake was in Oklahoma while she was in Los Angeles.

She added: “[This] is the first time we’ve been apart in six months.”

However, the duo then spent a lot of time together on Blake’s Oklahoma ranch, along with her three sons –  Kingston, 14, Zuma, 14, and Apollo, six – that she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.

The No Doubt frontwoman said it was nice “to be able to pause for a minute and be there with the boys and be in Oklahoma [because] he really has a stunning ranch.”

Eventually, they all went back to Los Angeles, California, but sources revealed they were fighting over where to live because Blake loves Oklahoma and she loves Los Angeles.

Multiple sources close to the Sweet Escape singer added: "Gwen and Blake are totally different. A fish can fall in love with a bird, but where will they make a home? 

"They are great when they are together alone but whenever they are around his friends or her friends, it never ends well. 

"One of the reasons these two are still not married after five years together is because they can’t even agree if they should get married in his beloved Oklahoma or her home of Los Angeles."
