Miranda Lambert can’t help but be giddy for her upcoming marriage to country crooner Blake Shelton. Her “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” reputation couldn’t be further from the truth! “As bad-ass as her image is, she is 200-percent girl.” Shelton says. Shelton only just recently reported proposing to Lambert. Apparently, while window-shopping for designer engagement rings earlier in the year, Lambert had her sights set on a half-million dollar pink diamond ring. At the time, Lambert noted how he’d have to save up for a while for the costly ring, but Lambert has since accepted a a different diamond and platinum ring. Shelton was quite traditional about the engagement process, even calling Lambert’s dad to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage. “That was so Southern and old-school and perfect.” Lambert said. And about the ring? “He knew exactly what I wanted, so it’s so much more perfect than I could have picked out myself.” And cheaper too!
The two were spotted at a No. 1 Party in Nashville, their first public appearance since getting engaged last Sunday. And of course Lambert was wearing the diamond and platinum ring while clutching her pet Chihuahua, Cher. “Being engaged ups the excitement level for us another notch.” Shelton said. He also added that, after five years, “everybody around us probably saw it coming.”
