Blake Shelton asked Gwen Stefani's sons for 'their permission' before surprise proposal following split rumors

BLAKE Shelton asked Gwen Stefani's sons for "their permission" before the couple's surprise proposal.

The country singer popped the questions falling rumors that they were headed toward a split.

Gwen shares three sons with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale: Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6.

A source revealed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that the 44-year-old singer had a serious discussion with Gwen's sons before the engagement.

The insider said: "Blake told her boys that he wanted to propose and asked their permission.

"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."

The source added that Blake and Gwen, 51, are "very excited" about their engagement.

Following weeks of speculation that the couple was about to call it quits, Gwen announced their plans to tie the knot.

The No Doubt singer shared their engagement news in an Instagram post as she flashed her diamond ring while sharing a kiss with the country star.

She simply wrote in the caption: "Yes, please!"

Blake also shared the snap and wrote: "Hey Gwen, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!"

The speculation of a possible split began when Gwen 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.”

The pair later shut down rumors that they had split when they cuddled together while celebrating their win at the 2020 CMT Music Awards.

While Gwen was married to Gavin from 2002-2016, Blake was married to fellow country star Miranda Lambert from 2011-2015.

It was recently reported that the engaged The Voice coaches have been negotiating a prenup "for months."

A source told Us Weekly: “They have been in prenup talks for a few months. The process has been extremely effortless.”

While there have been “no hiccups or outrageous demands” during the discussions, the prenup has not yet been finalized.

The insider added: “These are two mature adults that love each other.”

The source explained Gwen “just can’t afford to not have [a prenup] with Blake” because she didn't have one with Gavin and didn't want to make the same mistake twice.
