Gwen Stefani: No More Babies


Mom-of-two Gwen Stefani shows off her toned tummy on the cover of Marie Claire‘s October 2012 issue, on newsstands September 18. Inside the mag, Gwen opens up about sons Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4, her marriage to Gavin Rossdale, and thoughts on baby No. 3.

On her high-energy boys: “From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never knew they would be so physical. They’re just starting to play real well together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other – especially the little one, he really loves his older brother.”

On having a third child: “I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out. So… I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”

On what her 10 year anniversary with Gavin represents: “A miracle… my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”

On her relationship with Gavin: “[Our relationship] is better than it’s ever been. Like, we’re learning about each other all the time. He’s an amazing dad, he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me! He balances me out. And he – he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does.”

    Thank goodness she won’t have any more kids! Her poor nannies have a lot to deal with already, a third one would be too much for them. Unless she planned on hiring two more to add up to her colony.

      LOL – so true. Even when they go out as a family of 4, they are seldom seen without one of the nannies. Someone has to do the heavy lifting, I guess – literally: I remember a photo of them outside their London home and Gavin actually stood by while the nanny lifted the stroller up the stairs to the front door. No lie.

        I remeber that photo.

        I also remember another when the whole family went shopping and the nanny was holding Zuma along with 2 or 3 bag and Kingston walking next to her, while Gwen and Gavin walk ahead of her with nothing in their hands.

        Isn’t that what the nanny is PAID to do????

      Ha!ha!ha! Your post killed me but it was spot-on — Gwen would be at her wit’s end without her “colony” of nannies, that’s for sure. It’s funny how some people eat up the earth mom image she tries to project via the photo ops at the playground, zoo, etc. The nannies are sometimes conveniently photo-shopped out of the picture, but they are there, trust me. The paps aren’t interested in taking a photo of a nanny.

    Oh please…..if you had her money you’d be hiring a nanny too. Your jealous comments totally give you away….LOL

    • Jean

      I think the preceding posts went right over your head….There’s a difference between hiring a nanny which for most of us is as an alternative to daycare and relying on one 24/7 and never spending time one-on-one with your kids. Unfortunately Gwen falls into the latter category.

    • Bloopie

      I am jealous of her money, of course. Who isn’t?! And she doesn’t have to work so of course I want to be like her. But that’s not the point. If I were her, I wouldn’t have one single nanny. Why? Cause she is rich and she doesn’t have to work all the time. She has the opportunity to spend every single hours of the day with her children and it seems like she doesn’t (I am hoping it’s not the same at home). She should be spending more time with her children before the school system take them away from her for the next 16+ years. And she has 2 freaking kids! It’s not like she is in 19 Kids and Counting!

      Hurray for working moms without nannies! Kudos to all of you.

        Are you mentally retarded? She DOES work all the time, and not only that, the scheduling of the type of work she does probably DEMANDS that she has a nanny.

        Get. Over. Yourself.

        • anon.

          Only a degenerate would make a comment like that.

        • Bloopie

          She works all the time? I don’t, actually and I don’t care. Does she has to work though? No. It’s not like she’s trying to save her children from eating ramen noodles and crackers every night. Just saying.

          • Bloopie

            I don’t know, actually *

    “And it didn’t really work out.” Sounds like she confirmed those blinds about her abortion. Too sad, I’d love them to have a little girl, but of course it’s their life and their decisions.

    • Anonymous9

      Actually it doesn’t seem like she’s confirmed that at all. Most sites are pointing to a miscarriage. People don’t generally talk about things not working out if they made a conscious choice to not have a baby; saying things didn’t work out sounds a lot more like a miscarriage she’d rather not talk about to strangers.

      • alyson

        Miscarriage or a termination due to chromosomal abnormalities (after an amnio) is my guess.

      • chrissy

        My mistake, I did mean miscarriage, as a spontaneous abortion.

      What kind of a vicious, nasty person are you to spread a rumor like that????

  • Anonymous

    Oh I see all the jealous, hating b!tches are out in full bloom.

    Jean – you’re an idiot. How do you know that she relies on them 24/7???? Do you live with her? Do you stalk her? Unless you answered yes to either question, keep your mouth shut. If you don’t have facts, keep your ridiculous comments to yourself.

    If any of you had her money, you’d be the first one to run out and hire a nanny and if you say no, you’re a liar.

    What a bunch of dumb morons on this site.

      Awn you’re too cute :)
      Welcome to the club of butthurt morons, btw 😉

      • anonymous

        LOL!!! Maybe her kids are getting on her nerves. Hey, I have an idea, maybe she should give Gwen a call and ask to borrow one of her nannies?

      Even worse, half of these hags probably dump their kid in a filthy daycare for most of the day.

      Oh, I know, I know, it’s not the same. You’re right, it’s worse.

        WTF??? Did you forget to take your meds?

      • Ivy

        Or we can all quit our jobs and sit on our porches while we collect welfare like you..

        • Jean

          good comeback, Ivy, but people (?) like that aren’t worth responding to!

          Or you could have waited to have children until you could afford them.

      • Bloopie

        Oh because we all have millions and can just afford not working. Sure. Tell me more.

        • Anonymous

          You know, there are actually people who wait to have children until they can afford them. And afford to raise them themselves and not count on others to do it for them.

          Sorry you weren’t smart enough to do that, but it still makes you a nasty hag who dumps her kids in day care.
