Two buttons and span/ion-label are not inline

div class=“ion-no-padding ion-no-margin” style=“width: 100% !important; align-items: center;”
button1 /button1
ion-label “Hello” /ion-label
button2 /button2

While the two buttons are inline, the text “Hello” in the middle is aligned to the top of the parent instead of being inline with buttons.

No luck:
I tried “display: inline/block”
Tried replacing ion-label with
Tried padding but moves all the three components together (two buttons and the label)

Thank you,
