The rumor mill has officially been confirmed!

Romance rumors have been swirling around Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani since September, but Gwen just announced that she and her "The Voice" co-star are officially an item.

"Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating," Stefani's rep said in a statement.

The news shouldn't come as a huge surprise. The happy couple were spotted earlier this week getting cozy at a bevy of Halloween bashes.

In snaps taken at fellow "Voice" coach Adam Levine's Halloween bash in Studio City, Calif., over the weekend, Shelton is nuzzled up behind the "Hollaback Girl" and appears to have his hand placed near her lower back. The 39-year-old country crooner was dressed as a rockstar for the party while Stefani was outfitted in a ballerina-style costume. In another photo of the pair, Stefani appeared to be grabbing onto Shelton and intently talking to him. They also attended Jared Leto's Halloween bash the night prior. Both Shelton and Stefani partied together and were spotted leaving Leto's soiree in the same SUV.​

Plus, earlier this week, Stefani admitted she thought the "Honey Bee" singer was "hot."

The "Used to Love You" singer split with her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale, earlier this year and Shelton ended his marriage with Miranda Lambert in July after four years of wedded bliss.

It looks like all those rumors and coy comments proved to be true -- and we can't say we're bummed about it at all.
