These two! Gwen Stefani has previously spoken about how her romance with Blake Shelton was an "unexpected gift" that saved her, and now the country star is echoing her sentiments in a new interview with CMT.

The "Came Here to Forget" singer recently spoke to Katie Cook of CMT's Hot 20 Countdown about their "perfect" relationship. 

"It's not something anybody could've seen coming besides God, I guess, because it doesn't look like it would make sense," the Voice coach, 39, said. "All I can tell you is that it does. It just makes the most perfect sense for us and where we're at in our lives."

The No Doubt frontwoman, 46, and Shelton bonded and supported each other while working on The Voice last year as their marriages to Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert, respectively, imploded.

"I tell people all the time, 'Gwen saved my life last year.' She did," he continued. "I think she'd probably tell you something similar about me."

Shelton says that when they first began working together on The Voice in 2014, they didn't know each other that well. "[We'd] high-five, and [say] 'Good to see ya,'" he explained, but when they started working on a second season of the show last year, "all of a sudden this thing just happened because of some things that we were going through, and it saved my life. Period."

Us Weekly broke the news exclusively in November that the pair were dating. Since then they have spent holidays together and even collaborated on a song — "Go Ahead and Break My Heart" — on Shelton's new album, If I'm Honest.

"The story is that he had written this song and sent it to me on my phone," Stefani explained during an appearance on Chelsea Handler's new Netflix series, Chelsea, on Wednesday, May 18. "He's like, 'I wrote this song.' And I was like, Whoa, what if I don't like it? Huge turnoff! I listened to it and thought, Oh, my God, I love this. He said, 'Write the rest of it.'"

The couple recently performed the ballad on The Voice — and couldn't keep their eyes off each other.
