If anything is going to lay to rest all those rumors that their relationship is anything but genuine, let it be this photo. The latest season of The Voice is over, meaning they’re not just doing this to boost the show’s ratings, as some rumors have suggested. And the two have been dating now for several months, making their relationship, even though it began soon after their respective divorces, look less and less like a rebound. Even the toughest critics have to be coming around by now, because this love looks like it’s the real deal.

And sources close to the couple say that they’re both feeling good about their new relationship.
“There’s no pressure,” an insider told People magazine. “They’ve been able to support and relate to each other and have gotten through a very difficult and now triumphant time in their lives.”
Shelton and Stefani started dating earlier this year, just months after Shelton split from his wife of four years, Miranda Lambert, and Stefani divorced her husband of nine years, Gavin Rossdale. After a number of public outings sparked dating rumors, they confirmed their relationship to the public.
Now that we know their love is legit, how long do we have to wait for a musical collaboration between these two? Just because they’ve had to work to prove their relationship isn’t a sham, doesn’t mean they can’t profit off of it.
