Remember when Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton claimed they weren't in a relationship, even when they totally were? Well, that's over. They're so official that they even have a nickname — "Gwake." The couple was spotted by fans, who posted photos of their encounters on social media.

Stefani and Shelton didn't post anything to their respective social media accounts at Atwood Ranch and Home in Oklahoma on Dec. 23. Shelton has a house in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, and the two have been having a series of cute adventures in the area for the past few days, including this one that involved ice cream. (Celebrities get everything, right?)

Stefani and Shelton confirmed that they're dating in November, so this is the first Christmas the two have spent together as a couple, after divorcing their respective spouses, Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert. Both divorces have been such fodder for the paparazzi that it's no wonder these two fled the simmering gossip pot that is L.A. for Oklahoma, where they dared to hope things might be a little more quiet. It's a bummer that the press found them anyway, although the couple was gracious enough to pose for photos with their fans.

With their relationship so new, rumors have been flying like crazy — everything from pregnancy to Blake and Miranda getting back together. Stefani and Shelton had such public romances and breakups with other stars, it's probably impossible for them to really hide out.

It's no wonder celebrities have so much trouble maintaining a long term relationship — can you imagine being in the early stages of dating someone only to be constantly stalked by the press? It's like you're sabotaged before you even begin. And forget about the possibility of having an old fashioned rebound — the consequences are much greater if you're a star than if it's just you and someone you met on Tinder. In conclusion, folks, be glad you're not a famous person trying to date another famous person, or anyone at all.
