It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost one full year since we first learned that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating.
In the months since the Gwake bomb dropped, there have been countless rumors of Shelton and Stefani getting engaged, but thus far, we still haven’t seen a ring on Gwen’s finger.
But that’s not to say the couple doesn’t have plenty to celebrate.
Just 18 short months ago, Blake and Gwen were both married to other people.
Now, The Voice co-stars are head over heels for one another in a way that has fans (and eye-rolling haters) anticipating a wedding announcement any day.
We don’t know exactly when they hooked up for the first time, but we’re still a couple weeks shy of the date when Blake and Gwen confirmed they were dating on social media.
But that hasn’t stopped the couple from gushing about their 12 months of bliss in recent interviews:
“I was thinking about that because I feel like last year at this time, I went and took my kids to go see The Sound of Music for my birthday,” she recently told People magazine.
“You do that. You go, ‘Where was I last year?'”
Gwen avoided going into specifics, but it’s clear that her feelings for Shelton haven’t diminished over the past year:
“I can’t say anything but I’m so blessed,” she says about her relationship with Shelton.
“It’s just crazy how much happened, you know what I mean? So many beautiful memories.”
The couple is already celebrating their upcoming one-year milestone with some trips down memory lane.
They recently took Gwen’s kids to Disney Land and even swung by Gwen’s childhood home in Anaheim while they were in the area.
In the clip below, Gwen presents a compelling case for the argument that celebrities stop maturing at whatever age they became famous, as she goes full adolescent-fangirl over her own childhood home:
We get that it’s exciting to visit the house where you grew up, but Anaheim is like a 40-minute drive from LA, and … Gwen does know she’s rich and can make that trip whenever she wants, right?
Anyway, fans are already speculating that the couple will follow that up with a trip to Shelton’s childhood home in Oklahoma, where Blake will pop the question.
Obviously, neither party is confirming that particular rumor, but the singers say they appreciate all the fan interest in their romance.
“I was saying yesterday to somebody, I really feel the love, you know what I mean? It’s hard to put into words, but it’s a really cool thing to have that.”
We’ll be on full Gwake-watch so we can bring you the news of an engagement if and when it happens.
