Blessed! During a Thursday, March 3, appearance on Today, Pharrell Williams praised fellow Voice mentors Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s romance, calling it nothing short of “a miracle.”
“It’s poppin’ off!” the “Happy” singer, 42, said. “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.”
However, when sparks first began flying between Stefani and Shelton, Williams was unaware that he was witnessing the start of something serious.
“I had no idea,” Williams told Today’s Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly. “And then Blake sends me a text message, and I’m like, ‘Whoa!'”
Daly, 42, who serves as The Voice’s host, was also unwitting to his coworkers’ love affair in its early stages. “We were all like, ‘Whoa!’” he added. “None of us [knew], but we’re glad that it happened.”
Williams and Daly aren’t the only members of the Voice family who are fans of the newly minted power couple. Christina Aguilera has given her seal of approval as well.
“I’ve known Gwen for a really long time,” she told Us back in November 2015, 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.”
As previously reported, the twosome began dating shortly after they both went through public divorces. Shelton, 39, and ex-wife Miranda Lambert split in July 2015 after four years of marriage. The following month, Stefani, 46, pulled the plug on her 13-year union with Gavin Rossdale who she shares three sons with.
