And one on Twitter… too adorable.

This past year has been an eventful one for The Voicecoach. He and now ex-wife Miranda Lambert called it quits last summer. Soon after he and his fellow Voice co-star, Stefani, who was going through her own breakup with Gavin Rossdale, took their friendship to another level.

Shelton told CMT, “Gwen saved my life last year. It’s not something anybody could’ve seen coming besides God I guess because it doesn’t look like it would make sense… It just makes the most perfect sense for us and where we’re at in our lives.”

The two have also been making beautiful music together. Shelton’s latest album If I’m Honest was inspired by their romance, including their duet “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.”

On the Todayshow, Shelton said, “I actually wrote that song, started it just to try to impress her. And I sent it to her just half done…and she wrote the next verse and sent it back to me. And so it was like, oh, we’ve got a song together.”

Here’s wishing a very happy birthday to Blake!
