Fans of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani want to know when the couple is getting engaged, and Ellen DeGeneres may have the answer. Blake stopped by her show this week to promote his movie UglyDolls, and Ellen had an interesting present for him.
Ellen gave Blake a giant clock featuring a photo of him and Gwen kissing. She said she gave a similar clock to Jennifer Lopez earlier this year, to remind Alex Rodriguez that “the clock is ticking” and he should propose to her. “So I gave her that clock, and literally like a week later he proposed to her,” Ellen explained.
That may be a slight exaggeration, as CNN points out that J.Lo appeared on Ellen’s show February 15, and the couple announced their engagement March 9. Still, that’s pretty soon after. Could it work a second time? Will Blake propose to Gwen soon?
Well, if you ask Blake, he’s not the one who should feel pressured. “So you’re saying there’s a chance she’s gonna ask me to marry her,” Blake said when he received the gift. “I flipped it around, and put it on her.” Ellen said she’d give Gwen a call about it, and told Blake to put the clock “right above the bed.”
No matter who proposes to whom, it’ll be a long time coming for Shefani shippers. Blake and Gwen have been dating since 2015, when they were coaches together on The Voice. In fact, the couple just hit a milestone in their relationship when they walked the red carpet together with Gwen’s kids for the first time at the UglyDolls premiere.
This isn’t the first time Ellen has pressured Gwen and Blake to get married. “You’ve been together a long time. It seems like you will,” she told Gwen last year, adding that she loves being married herself. If they do ending up walking down the aisle, maybe Ellen should officiate.
