Blake & Gwen: You Won't Believe How the Stars Reacted to News They're Dating
Everyone is talking about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani… even their famous friends!
Luke Bryan learned the news at the Country Music Awards and was shocked. He told E! News, "He didn't come out about that. You're trying to trick me… Pull [it] up online. I need to see where Blake has stated that."
He joked, "It can't be true, because there's no way Blake could ever score a girl like that. It's not true." Watch!
Carson Daly, who works closely with the duo on "The Voice," opened up about their budding romance on the "Today" show, claiming he had no idea.
"C'mon! I'm a loyal guy. I didn't know."
Daly joked, "I didn't think Blake could get girls as hot as Gwen, to be honest. He's a goofy cowboy. She's the queen of cool. God bless them. They're two of the nicest people in the business," Carson said. "We're thrilled that they're finding each other."
When asked if he was shocked by the romance, Daly said, "I am not shocked, given Halloween and the photos that came out. I was a little shocked last night to hear Gwen's people put out an official thing because she apparently went to Nashville."

Meanwhile, Blake's recent split with Miranda Lambert was the butt of a joke by CMA hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood during their monologue.
Underwood teased, "It's cray-cray how many couples have broke up this year, from Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Halle Berry and what's his name. And of course we can't ignore the breakup that really rocked our world, the one that's on everyone's minds, two people who we all know and love: Splitsville."
At that point the cameras cut to Kermit and Miss Piggy, and Carrie added, "Well, Kermit, Miss Piggy, we just want to let you know that we love you both and want you to be happy."
Brad added, "And on a completely unrelated note… howdy, Blake. Have you heard the song that Blake did with Ashley Madison?" Carrie corrected him, saying, "No, no, that was Ashley Monroe."
