Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani is "so blessed" to be dating Blake Shelton.

The 'Used To Love You' hitmaker has gushed about the "beautiful" year she has had with her boyfriend and is thrilled their fans are so accepting of their blossoming romance.

She told People magazine: "I can't say anything but I'm so blessed. It's just crazy how much happened, you know what I mean? So many beautiful memories!

"We feel [their support]. I was saying yesterday to somebody, I really feel the love, you know what I mean? It's hard to put into words, but it's a really cool thing to have that."

And Blake is equally in awe of the 47-year-old singer - who has Kingston, 10, Zuma, eight, and Apollo, two, with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale - admitting he "can't believe" they are actually dating.

He said recently: "I still can't believe it. I thought she must have, like, some vision problems ... Maybe she needs help, I don't know."

Meanwhile, Blake, 40, also revealed he didn't realise his now-girlfriend was responsible for some of his favourite tracks.

He added: "I didn't think I knew much of her music until I, until you go to one of her shows, and I remember - this has been like a month ago - she flew into Oklahoma and I was driving to pick her up at the airport. And I was flipping through XM radio and I stopped on this song and I was like, 'That voice sounds like Gwen. What in the hell is this - why don't I know this?'

"It's this song called 'It's My Life,' which was a huge record for No Doubt. And I'm going, 'I didn't know Gwen sang that song.' I've always known 'Hey Baby'. I didn't know she sang that freaking song. All these songs. It's like, 'Wow, that was you? That's you and we've kissed? Wow, that is amazing!'"
