Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton began dating this past fall. Blake's fellow coach on The Voice--Pharrell Williams--thinks the two are great together.

Pharrell appeared on the Today Show Thursday, and chatted about his good friends.

"It's poppin' off!" the “Happy” singer said of Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. "It's so beautiful, because being there, I watched both of them go through a lot, you know. You hate to see your friends go through something so heavy, and it's kind of like a miracle, man--just watching that."

Pharrell told Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly he was shocked when he first found out.

"I had no idea," he said. "And then Blake sends me a text message, and I'm like, 'Whoa!'"

Carson Daly swears he didn't know Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton were an item for quite some time either.

"We were all like, 'Whoa!'” he added. "None of us [knew], but we're glad that it happened."

Some fans wondered if Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's relationship would last after season nine of The Voice was over. Without Gwen returning as a coach this season--Christina Aguilera has returned--many wondered if things between the two might fizzle out.

That couldn't be further from the truth. Even Christina Aguilera gives their relationship her seal of approval.

“I’ve known Gwen for a really long time,” she said this fall, when Stefani’s rep confirmed the relationship. “We went to each others’ kids birthday parties, we share the same management, and Blake I know now from the show.”

Blake Shelton announced this past summer that he and Miranda Lambert were divorced. Gwen Stefani announced not too long afterward that she and husband Gavin Rossdale had split.

It seems like fans aren't the only ones who love seeing Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton together. Even their cohorts at The Voice think they make a remarkable couple.

Do you think Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are in this for good? Might there be wedding bells ringing for the couple in the future?
