Radar is reporting that Blake Shelton decided to take his genuine love for Gwen Stefani by popping the question to her after just six months of very public outings and TV performances. And romance or something. Prepare yourselves, the proposal story is straight out of the Cowboy Romance Handbook. I need a minute before I tell you what happened, my eyes are stuck in the roll position…
According to Radar, during an indoor picnic (what?) at Gwen’s mansion, Blake hid a $1.2 million dollar engagement ring inside a box of KFC. However, when Gwen found it, she didn’t yodel out a “yeehaw yes“. Gwen turned him down. If getting turned down by your girl after she pulls out a greasy, crazy expensive ring from a box of fried chicken isn’t country, I don’t know what is. There must be songs about this already, right? If there aren’t, you can bet your prize winning pig there will be.
Radar’s source types are saying are behind there were quite a few factors behind the decision. Gwen is still feeling the burn after the divorce form Gavin Rossdale and his nanny humping ways. The age difference between her and Blake is also apparently a concern. She’s 39 and he’s 46. The age factor is also stinging her in the ass because she thinks she’s done having babies and is worried Blake won’t be happy in a relationship where he won’t get the chance to be a father. However, her main concern is her three kids, Kingston (10), Zuma (7) and Apollo (2) and how they’d adjust to a new Mr Stefani.
What a funny coincidence that this story broke right after it came out Gavin is not happy about Blake being around his kids so much. Just like everything else with Gwen and Blake, this definitely doesn’t seem orchestrated! There’s nothing phony smelling about an indoor picnic and a ring in a box of chicken. Blake, despite being turned down, apparently told Gwen to hold onto the ring until she changes her mind. That’s really sweet of him. He knows what she’s going through. I’d need a cheer up million dollar rock too if this had been done to me.
