No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale are planning to marry after six years together. According to a statement released by No Doubt’s label, Interscope Records, Rossdale proposed on January 1st and “Stefani happily accepted and the two will set a wedding date later in 2002.”
The engagement caps a busy year for both, during which their respective bands recorded and released new albums. But, according to Stefani, their duties didn’t keep them apart. “We had so much fun together this year, because we spent so much time together and really got to know each other,” she says. “Not that we didn’t know each other already. I just can’t believe it’s been six years.”
The couple met when No Doubt and Bush shared the bill at Los Angeles radio station KROQ’s annual holiday concert in 1995.
“I base my life as much around Gwen as I do myself,” Rossdale told Rolling Stone in November. “I think of us in the same light.”
