Love often happens in unexpected ways!
Take Gwen Stefani, for example. In a recent interview for the December issue of Instyle, the mom of three opened up about how her marriage to Gavin Rossdale began to crumble right around the time she found happiness and a new identity on The Voice.

While we can't know exactly when Gwen's relationship with her co-star Blake Shelton began, we think it's safe to say he's a BIG reason why she's in a "really positive place right now"!
Speaking on her past difficulties, the singer explained:
"I didn't tour at all. But I did record the No Doubt album, which was super hard. I was torn the whole time. Every day I would take the kids to school, drive to Santa Monica, work on the album, and then I'd think, 'Oh my god, if I don't leave by 2:30, I'm not gonna get home in time for dinner.' And Gavin being on tour…"
Sounds tough! It's really hard to be a super mom AND a rockstar!
As for how the reality show helped her move past the drama, she credits co-star Pharrell Williams (this interview was conducted before the Blake news came out) for rebuilding her image. The Don't Speak singer added:
"He helped me with a lot of stuff. I was in a closed-off period before that – I couldn't write, and I didn't feel confident. There were hard times before the baby, personally, that were just not good. And then having Apollo, and being on the show, and being refreshed: It was just like, 'Whoa!'"
Aww — we always knew Williams was a class act! We're glad to hear that Stefani is past that "not good" period in her life.
Summing up her turnaround, the icon gushed:
"I'm in a really positive place right now."
Hmm, we wonder if a lovable country boy had anything to do with this amazing turnaround!
