Oh Gwen, how we have missed you.

Rejoice, Gwen Stefani is back as a coach on The Voice after a season away, and E! News has your exclusive first look at her return that proves just how great she looks in that swivel chair. It also reveals a few fun facts about the former No Doubt singer that you might not have known. 

First of all, she's from Anaheim, California, and she was a Girl Scout with a serious fondness for Girl Scout cookies. Her very first concert was Emmy Lou Harris, and for her whole life, she's done her own make up, made up her own songs, and done her own roadie-ing! She drives a van, you guys! 

Gwen also shares the name she originally wanted to give her third son, Apollo, until her now ex-husband Gavin Rossdale vetoed it. 

Watch the video above to find out what it was! 

To see more of Gwen's return to The Voice, watch E! News tonight at 7 and 11 p.m.!

Stefani originally joined the NBC reality hit for season seven, when Christina Aguilera was taking a break. Aguilera returned for season eight, and will reportedly be back again for season 10. 

"I'm coming back and am so excited! I can't believe I get to return to The Voice," Stefani said in a statement. "It's so inspiring to be around such incredible talent and music. I'm looking forward to working again with Adam, Blake and Pharrell. I love those guys."

Gwen joins fellow coaches Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton, along with key advisor Rihanna for what looks to be a pretty incredible season 9. 

The Voice returns on Monday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. on NBC. 

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBC Universal family.)
