Christina Aguilera chatted with Access Hollywood recently, and since she is among the original coaches on The Voice, the talk naturally turned to Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Aguilera is happy for the new couple.
Learning that Blake and Gwen were truly dating came as a surprise to Christina Aguilera, however.

"I think there was starting to be rumors about it, and I was like, [laughs] 'Yeah, right, Blake!'" she says. "It was just funny. We were just palling around, joking around. And then it became real."
Xtina believes the two make a great couple.
Blake Shelton is "a barrel of laughs, and has been like a brother to me," she says.
Christina Aguilera is pro-Gwen Stefani as well.
"She's an awesome girl. She's such a dedicated mom," she adds.
"Happiness deserves happiness. They're good people. I just know that divorce is tough and so they deserve some laughs and happiness and if it's [with] each other, then they deserve each other," Christina Aguilera says.
Has Christina had a chance to speak to Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani since that proverbial cat came out of its bag?
"I just saw them yesterday, actually, and I got the chance to tell [Gwen] in person ... 'You get that cowboy, girl!'" she says.
That sounds about right for Christina Aguilera. She's nothing if not just this side of raunchy. That's actually a rather tame statement for the "Beautiful" singer.
Christina Aguilera will return to The Voice next season, meaning Blake Shelton won't have Gwen Stefani by his side. In fact, Gwen will be on tour with No Doubt.
Do you expect Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton will still be a couple when Christina Aguilera returns to The Voice?
