Meanwhile, Shelton penned: "Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020... And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!"

They got together on the set of The Voice following the breakdown of their respective marriages.

Stefani was married to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale from 2002 to 2016 and the pair share three sons, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, six.

Shelton has been married twice before. He wed Kaynette Gern in 2003 before splitting three years later in 2006 and went on to wed singer Miranda Lambert in 2011, divorcing in 2015.

Rossdale recently expressed his shame over the breakdown of his marriage to Stefani.

When asked by The Guardian what his most embarrassing moment was, he replied: "The gross and lopsided spectre of the crumbling of my marriage."
