CONFIRMED: Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are dating.

Celebrity love news!

Recently heartbroken (there’s a mirror-crying music video to prove it) singer Gwen Stefani, 46, and recently divorced country star Blake Shelton, 39, are more than colleagues.

“Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating,” a rep for Stefani told Us Magazine.

WOAH, you guys. They’ve been flirting on the set of The Voice (allegedly, I’ve never watched this televised flirt-fest) but up until now they’ve denied anything romantic is happening.

Speculation ramped up after they were spotted canoodling (only celebrities ever “canoodle”) at Halloween parties last weekend. Sorry dudes, your costumes just weren’t that convincing.

Stefani has recently split from her husband of 13 years Gavin Rossfale, 50, amid rumours of infidelity on his part. Their divorce was finalised in October.

Shelton is also recently divorced, having been married to country singer Miranda Lambert, 31. They were married in 2011 and split this year.

“My life blew up in my face,” Stefani said on Tuesday during On Air With Ryan Seacrest.

“I feel like I don’t have anything to hide,” Stefani said, implying that her upcoming album is laced with clues. “What I will tell you is that I was married for a long time and now I’m not. It was like a shock.”

She’s previously refused to be drawn on whether or not she’s seeing Shelton, but she wasn’t particularly concerned with quashing rumours.

When Seacrest asked if she was seeing Shelton, she said, “I’m not going to answer that right now,” Stefani said. “But I think he’s hot, don’t you?”
