Update, 11/7: Just three days after Gwen Stefani's rep confirmed that she and her Voice co-judge Blake Shelton are *indeed* an item, the "Used to Love You" singer has broken her silence about their budding romance. 

"He's a pretty rad guy, I have to say that," Stefani told #Uncorked (opens in new tab) hosts Leigh Ann and Courtney from Dallas/Fort Worth radio station 103.7 KVIL, according to ET (opens in new tab)

"There's been loads of people that have helped me with this tragedy," she added, referencing her divorce from Gavin Rossdale. "There's definitely key people that have pointed me into the right direction. Blake really helped me."

Whether or not this is just a rebound relationship (sorry, G, that's just how it sounds!), at least everyone will get a good ol' "mid-tempo country ballad" (opens in new tab) out of it. 

Original story, 11/4: After rumors that the two were dating (opens in new tab) and super grainy pictures that sorta, maybe confirmed it (opens in new tab), Gwen Stefani's rep has *truly* made it clear: The two Voice co-judges are together. 

"Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating," Stefani's spokesperson told Us Weekly (opens in new tab). He/she would not go on, but really, what else needs to be said?

"They've been supporting each other through a difficult time and they're really happy together," another anonymous person told People (opens in new tab). "Everyone is thrilled because they're both incredibly nice people." 

In case you needed a recap—Shelton recently split from his wife Miranda Lambert after four years, while Stefani split from Gavin Rossdale after 13. But in the words of wise Selena Gomez, "the heart wants what it wants."
