Speaking with Us Weekly, the Beautiful singer continued: "Gwen's such a great mother and a hard-working mother too! It's not easy to juggle The Voice and music and children - it takes a strong woman. And obviously I'm always in support of that. And I do know what it's like to go through a divorce myself, and it's tough!"

Christina, who split from her husband Jordan Bratman in 2010, had nothing but good advice for the pair. "I keep telling them both to stay strong and have fun," she continued. "Divorce and life is hard enough! If you find someone who makes you happy, you gotta go for it. So they deserve it and they deserve to be happy!"

Gwen and Blake went public with their relationship in November

Gwen filed for divorce from husband Gavin Rossdale in August after 20 years together and 13 years of marriage. "While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment," the couple confirmed in a statement.

Country singer Blake divorced wife Miranda Lambert in July, leading the two judges to grow closer. A representative for Gwen confirmed that the pair were indeed an item in a statement to Us Weekly in early November, saying: "Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating."
