Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are here to remind everybody that love is real.

When country crooner Shelton wished his pop-star girlfriend a happy 48th birthday on Tuesday, she responded by candidly thanking him for saving her life.

"Happy Birthday @gwenstefani!!! Why don't you go ahead and NEVER break my heart!!!!" wrote Shelton, 41.

To make the message even more adorable, macho guy Shelton is currently using the cover of Stefani's upcoming Christmas album, "You Make It Feel Like Christmas," as his profile pic.

"@blakeshelton thank u for saving my life," Stefani replied, adding heart emojis for good measure.

Stefani's heartfelt comeback showed how grateful she is that her "Voice" co-star helped heal her broken heart when the pair bonded while going through high-profile divorces in the summer of 2015.

The musical lovebirds have inspired couple goals pretty much nonstop since they first revealed they were an item later that year.

In fact, last June, Shelton moved TODAY host Hoda Kotb to tears when he gushed about life with his special lady.

"We’re just content and happy, and it’s just an incredible feeling,” Shelton said of Stefani. “She’s my best friend."

Here's wishing Gwen a terrific birthday!
