Gwen Stefani is being pretty frank about her 12-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale — especially the fact that it hasn't all been picture perfect.

In the March issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, the singer and Voice judge was very blunt when describing her and her hubby's ups and downs. "We go through so much together — it's a miracle that we could stay together this long," Stefani said in the interview.

She continued: "[Gavin's] on a short tour right now, and he wrote me the sweetest note this morning. It's good to have those days when we both do our own things. I think that's what keeps relationships going, when both people can be themselves and have their own individuality. That's especially important for women. It's hard to find time for yourself."

Aside from their rocky bits and sweeter moments, Stefani is still in awe of the fact that she landed Rossdale in the first place. "I don't know if I was a nerd in high school, but I definitely wasn't the super-cute cheerleader so I never saw myself getting somebody like that," she explained of her hot hubs. "But I do think he's quite handsome. It's not the most important thing about him, but it is nice — and he makes really cute babies!" Very true!

With three children and more than a decade of marriage, it seems like these two musicians are doing something right. It's refreshing to hear some honesty about Hollywood relationships, and to also learn about the cute little things these two do for each other.
