Country singer Blake Shelton, 33, went the old-fashioned route when he popped the question to country singer Miranda Lambert on May 9.
“He called my dad and got his blessing first,” Lambert tells People. “That was so Southern and old-school and perfect.”
And then the Hillbilly Bone singer presented her with a diamond-and-platinum ring he chose on his own. “I was so proud of him,” says Lambert, 26. “We’ve been together five years, so he knew exactly what I wanted but it’s so much more perfect than I could have picked out myself.”
