Gwen Stefani has only gone and done a double whammy, opening up about her divorce and her new boyfriend in a new interview.

Gwen split with rocker Gavin Rossdale back in August after 13 years of marriage and she described the sad situation to Dallas/Fort Worth radio station* 103.7 KVIL*, saying: ‘There's been loads of people that have helped me with this tragedy.’

She then brought up Blake Shelton, who’s rep recently confirmed the pair are dating, noting: ’There's definitely key people that have pointed me into the right direction. Blake really helped me.’

She then got all love-heart-eyes-emoji (we assume) and said of the country singer: ‘He's a pretty rad guy, I have to say that’

The 46-year-old singer insisted her and Blake tried to keep her new relationship private - when asked about announcing their relationship publicly she said: ‘We didn't! Like, somebody did. That's what's so crazy like, who announces that? Why would I do that?’

Gwen also spoke about her role as a mentor on The Voice US, where works alongside Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and new bf Blake, saying it helped her through a difficult period she went through before having her son Apollo, now 20 months old.

Hinting at prevous marriage troubles she said: '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!'

'Filming the show... was so amazing. I cried every day I was there. It was so intense. But I'm in a really positive place now.'

Gwen also has two other sons with Gavin; Kingston, nine, and Zuma, seven.
