We can always count on Howard Stern to get celebrities to reveal their most personal details ― Tina Fey spilled on all the behind-the-scenes Oscars secrets, Mila Kunis revealed that she and Ashton Kutcher were friends with benefits before they got married and on Wednesday, Gwen Stefani broke into tears while discussing her love life.
While speaking about her relationship with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, with whom she has three sons, the singer couldn’t hold back her emotions.
Stefani met Rossdale shortly after her breakup with No Doubt bass player Tony Kanal, who she said she was “obsessed” with. But when she met Rossdale, things were different.
“When I met him and looked up at him, I was like, ‘Whoa.’ It was different,” she said. “I was in quite a rebellious place because I was feeling really rejected, but I also had this newfound power of songwriting … I was in a crazy place.”
“Somehow he got my phone number, and that was that. He stalked me, I think,” she joked.
Stern then brought up the divorce, apologizing to Stefani for what she went through. (Rossdale reportedly cheated on Stefani, a claim which she basically confirmed in Harper’s Bazaar earlier this month.)
“Its been an unbelievable journey … My parents were totally helping me through the whole thing,” she said before tearing up. “I always wondered, why did I get so unlucky in love? I have so much love in me. [Howard,] you are making me cry.”
But as we all know, Stefani is now dating country star Blake Shelton, a fellow judge and mentor on “The Voice.”
The singer explained that their relationship started out platonically, but as she’s said before, they both bonded over the fact that they were going through divorces (Shelton had split from Miranda Lambert).
When Stefani found out about Shelton’s divorce, she admitted, “I might have gone white.”
“I was in shock,” she said, “because I felt like he was exposing me. I just couldn’t even wrap my head around it.”
As the two continued getting to know each other, their relationship grew.
“[It’s] unbelievable that God would put us [together] at that moment, like at the same moment. His thing was going on since January and mine in February.”
Of course, the couple have been very public with their romance, often posting photos of each other and sharing loving exchanges on social media. But when asked if there was a wedding on the way for the them, Stefani simply said, “Literally not answering that.”
Guess we’ll just have to wait to find out.
