Last year, Blake Shelton was named the Country Artist of 2019 at the E! People’s Choice Awards. He was excited when he learned he could swear on the show, and kept that information in mind during his acceptance speech.

He turned his attention to his longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani and said, “Gwen Stefani, I love the s— outta you!”

Fast forward to this year, and Shelton and Stefani are still madly in love. In fact, they just got engaged in October!

The couple shared the happy news by posting a photo on social media that shows Stefani flaunting her engagement ring while she and Shelton kissed. Shelton captioned the picture, “Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!”

Just a few weeks after Shelton and Stefani announced their engagement, it was revealed that Shelton won the award for Country Artist of 2020 at this year’s People’s Choice Awards! So like last year, Shelton took time out of his speech to thank Stefani…and this time he addressed her by her new title.

Thank you to my new fiancée, Gwen Stefani. That’s S-t-e-f-a-n-i, if you need to Google it to figure out who she is,” he joked.
