Hot mama of two, Gwen Stefani, rocks Louis Vuitton on the July 2010 cover of UK’s InStyle. The 40-year-old rockstar – who fueled pregnancy rumors earlier this month when she was seen wearing Sea-Band bracelets – talks about the possibility of welcoming a girl and her career “backup plan.”
On trying for a girl to pass down her wardrobe: “I don’t know. Having children is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. No one could have prepared me for how awesome it is and how hard. And having two boys – there’s a lot of energy. I mean, it does seem weird that I don’t have a girl, but I feel like I’m running out of time. I also don’t want to spread myself so thin that I can’t even be good for them… Poor Zuma, he’d be the middle guy. I’m not focusing on it right now, but it’s not up to me anyway, you know? These things are miracles, so we’ll see. Otherwise, the clothes are probably going to go to some girlfriend of Kingston’s!”
On why she entered the world of fashion: “I wanted so badly to have a backup plan for when I’m not performing any more. Let’s be realistic: it’s not going to be like this forever. So I wanted to continue having something creative to do. I have to be creative to be happy. I don’t have a strong sense of self-worth unless I’m doing something. I was a different person before I started to write. When I realized I could be a songwriter and that people would listen – that was when I started feeling good in my life.”
Gwen and her husband Gavin Rossdale are parents to sons Kingston, 4, and Zuma, 1 1/2.
