Of course, these two have plenty to smile about. Not only do they have a love connection, they also have a country-pop crossover hit with their duet.

But during an episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" airing Monday, Shelton admitted that he never imagined their song would go that far.

"I only started the song to impress her," he explained. "To be like, 'Hey, I’m writing a song about ya.'"

But suddenly he was the one impressed.

"So I sent it to her, and then she wrote the other half of the song," he recalled. "I was like, 'Oh, she just one-upped me.'"

And he's just fine with that!
