On Thursday (November 26), the country star turned to Instagram to share a photo with Stefani alongside a reflective note. "What a year we've all had, but there is still plenty to be thankful for! Happy Thanksgiving y'all," he captioned the post. "Love u @blakeshelton gx," Stefani wrote in the comments section.
The couple did not share details of exactly how they spent the holiday, but they did make a special virtual appearance at Shelton's Ole Red restaurant in Nashville on Wednesday (November 25) during a Battle of the Bands competition.
"I just wanted to poke my head in and wish everybody happy Thanksgiving. That's Gwen Stefani standing way over there. We started our cooking," Shelton said in a clip shared on the restaurant's Instagram page. "Be safe and good luck to all the battle of the banders."
Shelton and Stefani met in 2015 on the set of The Voice and started dating shortly after. At the time Shelton had just gone through a very public divorce with Miranda Lambert while Stefani had just ended her marriage with Gavin Rossdale.
The couple announced their engagement on Tuesday, October 27, sharing an adorable engagement photo to Instagram. "Yes please," Stefani simply captioned her post, while Shelton wrote, "Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020 and the rest of my life. I love you. I heard a YES!"
Since the proposal, Shelton and Stefani have already started making wedding plans. A source close to the couple says their wedding will be an intimate affair.
"Neither wants a big wedding," the source told People, adding that only close friends and family will attend the ceremony which they hope to have as soon as possible.
Stay tuned for further details on the adorable couple's special day!
