Hmm… maybe this is the REAL deal!
In a candid interview with Billboard Magazine, Blake Shelton dug deep on his relationship with Gwen Stefani and offered up cute details about the pair's surprising romance. In fact, the singer's musings are SO sweet it might have those publicity stunt conspiracists questioning their cynicism!

While we already know how Blake and Gwen fell in love (mutual divorces and a hit reality show brings people together, you guys!), the country boy dished on what really solidified their attraction to each other. According to Shelton, the beauty's songwriting abilities REALLY impressed him!
Speaking on the duo's collaboration on Go Ahead And Break My Heart, the singer revealed:
"She wrote a verse that was brutally honest and didn't really go with my verse. I was writing about her, and she made it about us. I was so taken aback by it. F–, she's awesome."
"Awesome", indeed! The momma has officially been in the biz since 1991, after all!
Despite the immediate connection between the adorable couple, Blake went on to confess he's still discovering new things about Gwen ALL THE TIME. The straight shooter even admitted to not knowing all of his girlfriend's hits!
In one funny anecdote, B.S. recalled how he didn't immediately recognize Stefani's hit It's My Life when it came on the radio one day:
"I thought, 'Man, that sounds like Gwen.' And sure enough, the DJ said it was No Doubt. I was like, 'What the f–?' I didn't know that was her song. I'm still learning, I guess."
HA! Well, the more you know…
All jokes aside, the 40-year-old couldn't be more grateful to have G.S. in his life:
… Next thing I know, I wake up and she's all I care about, and I'm wondering if she feels the same about me. Gwen saved my life. Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can't even imagine the similarities in our divorces."
How precious. It's obvious the hit maker is quite smitten with Gwen.
So, do YOU think this relationship will last?
