It's official guys, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are now married!
It has been reported that less than a year after getting engaged, the couple met at the end of the aisle to exchange vows with each other in what has been described as an "intimate" wedding ceremony.
The news comes just a few weeks after Stefani was seen wearing some sort of wedding band next to her engagement ring while out in Los Angeles with Shelton last month. The intimate ceremony took place at Shelton's Oklahoma ranch, where sources previously told Page Six that he built a chapel with the intention of marrying Stefani there, and fast forward a few months and here we are!
Let's just say fans were more than excited upon hearing the good news:
They are MARRIED…MARRIED!!! My heart is full.

The pair first shared the news of their engagement back in October 2020 with "The Sweet Escape" singer posting a snapshot of her diamond ring on Instagram.
"@blakeshelton yes please!" she captioned the photo.
Shelton also shared his own post writing "Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020... And the rest of my life... I love you. I heard a YES!"
It's almost been 6 years since the couple met back while they were both judges on the TV show The Voice. Both Stefani and Shelton were going through difficulties in their own relationships at the time and after subsequently ending them, they got together a short while after.
In 2016, the forty-five-year-old country singer told Billboard that their divorces were how the pair initially bonded.
"I won't forget that day," he said. "I looked over at Gwen - who I didn't really know - and she had these huge tears in her eyes. I thought, 'Wow, she feels super bad for me!'"
He continued: "That's kind of how our friendship and bond started, that day. It went from that to checking in on each other once a week through email - 'This sh** happened to me, what happened to you?' - to maybe 3 times a week, then every day, to 'Hey, here's my phone number if you ever want to text.' Next thing I know, I wake up and she's all I care about, and I'm wondering if she feels the same about me."
And it was pretty obvious that she was feeling the same way. Speaking to Australian magazine, Stellar, back in March, she said this: "Blake is the greatest guy. I look back over the past few years and look at pictures of when I first started kissing Blake, and I look the best I've ever looked in my life in those photos."
She added" "Love must look good on me. I feel like that does show through - it really does."
Congratulations to the happy couple, we hope married life treats them well!
