Gwen Stefani stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Jan. 5 to dish on some exciting life happenings, including her engagement to Blake Shelton. During the interview, the 51-year-old singer opened up about Blake’s proposal in October, saying, “It was actually pretty magical.” The special moment unfolded during a sweet escape as the couple enjoyed some time with loved ones at their ranch in Oklahoma – a getaway that almost didn’t happen due to the COVID-19 outbreak. “We were this close to canceling the trip,” Gwen said. “We ended up making it all happen, and we were all here at the ranch.” Blake then popped the question, and the duo celebrated with their family.
The 44-year-old country singer recently received backlash regarding his new song “Minimum Wage,” which is inspired by Gwen. Many fans criticized the track for including “tone-deaf” lyrics – such as “Your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage” – that appear to make light of financial instability amid the pandemic. Blake seemingly responded to the controversy on Twitter, but Gwen has yet to address the discourse. Watch her full interview on The Tonight Show above.
