Gwen Stefani almost ruined her engagement news by showing her ring off early.
The ‘Hollaback Girl’ hitmaker and Blake Shelton recently announced they’re set to tie the knot after five years together, but Blake has now revealed the sweet Instagram post confirming the news was almost ruined, because Gwen couldn’t stop showing off her ring.
Blake explained the situation whilst appearing on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’, after the show host complained that Gwen announced her engagement the day after she’d appeared on the show in October, rather than using the programme for the big news.
Seth said: “I have a small gripe, which is, the very next day, she basically announced on Instagram that you guys have been engaged. That’s the kind of content we could have really had a lot of fun with.”
And Blake, 44, explained she was already wearing the ring when she went on the show, adding: “She kept, like, doing this with her hand [lifting it to her face]. And you know, [she was] wondering if people would figure out that she was wearing an engagement ring.”
Luckily, the 51-year-old singer wore plenty of other jewellery, so no-one suspected a thing.
Blake said: “I told her, I said, ‘You know you wear more jewellery than Mr. T. so I don’t think anybody is gonna pick up on that, Gwen.’ And they didn’t. You could’ve figure it out. She was giving you hints!”
Seth then blamed virtual interviews for his lack of awareness, as his show has mostly been taking place over Zoom in recent months as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
He said: “It’s very hard over Zoom because you never know. I don’t want to stare. You end up looking in the camera more than you do at the guests. So, it was true. It was right in front of me and I missed it.”
