First, Gwen and host Ellen DeGeneres engaged in a bit of gentle ribbing. Ellen tried to trick the former Voice coach into admitting she was engaged. “So Blake told me that y’all are engaged now,” Ellen said.
But, the 49-year-old stood her ground. “We’re not. We’re not engaged, and we’re not married. And he’s my boyfriend still,” she fired back.
Then their easy conversation shifted gears. “Let’s get serious for a second,” the No Doubt front woman said.
Ellen then alluded to her friend’s past few tumultuous years. “Gwen, you know, she deserves everything she has. She deserves this love, she deserves the life that she has, and the career. Because she went through a lot,” Ellen said.

“Now I’m crying on TV, too,” Gwen responded, quickly overcome with tears.
“I love you, and I hated to see what you were going through, and you didn’t deserve it,” the 60-year-old told her, presumably referring to her divorce.
As OK! readers know, Gwen and Gavin split after he allegedly had an affair with the family’s longtime nanny. Back in 2016, she told Cosmopolitan, “Nobody would believe it if I could really say what happened. I went through months and months of torture.”
