The “Hollaback Girl” singer spoke to Jimmy Fallon about the moment that her country singer beau finally popped the question after five years together.
“Wasn’t expecting it at the moment that it happened, at all,” she said on “The Tonight Show” on Jan. 5. “Didn’t have any idea, nobody knew. I think he had told my dad on my birthday about two weeks earlier, and I gotta tell you, I was sorta like, What’s happening with us?”
She added, “It was kind of in my mind like, We’ve been together a long time now. What’s going on? I was in that place in my head.”
Before the proposal, reports claim, Blake got the approval from Gwen’s sons Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6, whom she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
Still, Gwen wishes her man would have popped the question sooner, especially amid the pandemic.
“It’s like, Blake, why couldn’t you have done it before,” she mused. “Now we can’t have a wedding with the pandemic. It’s like sitting around going, OK, drag it out more!”
