Gwen Stefani is pulling at our heartstrings.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the singer opens up about hitting rock bottom following the end of her 14-year marriage with Gavin Rossdale.
“My dreams were shattered,” she tells the magazine. “All I wanted my whole life was to have babies, be married, like what my parents have.”
On top of dealing with the stress of going through a divorce, the singer also faced difficulties when splitting custody of her children, Kingston, 10, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2.

She continues, “It was so insane because not only did my family break up, but then my kids are taken away like half the time, so that was really like, ‘What?! What did I do?'”
Her new beau, Blake Shelton, seemed to come along at the perfect time, as the country singer was also in the midst of splitting with his now ex-wife Miranda Lambert. “It was like being a handed a gift from a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time.”
We wish Gwen all the happiness in the world!
