A lot of people were fairly shocked when Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale revealed the name of their new son to be Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale, but an Us Weekly expert, Pamela Redmon Satran, did her best to explain the name.
“They’ve continued their own place-naming tradition by naming their son after Zuma Beach in Malibu,” Satran explains, citing a profile of Rossdale which said he had an epiphany that began his career. “He was standing on Zuma Beach in the early morning after working all night as a production assistant on a music video and was quoted as saying he realized he was wasting his time,” Satran says. “He drove up the coast, slept in his car, and started making the moves that would launch his career.”
Zuma is also the name of an album released by Niel Young and Crazy Horse in 1975. Nesta, meanwhile, was Bob Marley’s first name before an immigration official switched it with his middle name, Robert.
“This name obviously links to big brother Kingston’s and is another nod to Jamaica and reggae,” says Satran.
And of course, the name Rock is self-explanatory, given that the baby’s parents are rock stars, Satran says, and the fact that we’re “long overdue for a Rock Hudson-inspired revival.” It may also refer to No Doubt’s third album, Rock Steady, which was recorded primarily in Jamaica. (Big brother Kingston was named after the capital city of Jamaica.)

“Everyone is just so very happy. It’s fantastic news, and I’m just so happy.” He added that he “can’t wait” to meet his new grandson. “I’m always proud of Gavin and my grandchildren,” he added.
Gwen and Gavin’s first son, the adorable Kingston, turned two in May.

We hope Gwen is recovering well and we can’t wait to see pictures of the new little guy!

On her cravings: I’ve always had a sweet tooth and that hasn’t changed. It is really important not to have too much sugar, because that’s how you end up with a big baby—so that’s a struggle for me. I’ve been told that in my third trimester it’s really important, so I’m there and I’m really trying.
On how she stays fit: I stay active. I try to work out at least four days a week. I do an hour of cardio on the elliptical and then light weight lifting, just upper body. I don’t do lower body because you want your lower body to loosen up to make room for the baby to come through.
On details about her birth plan: I’m going to have the water there, but I know that I might not end up giving birth in the water. Or, I might just use my own tub.
On her plan to breastfeed: I’m definitely breastfeeding. God gave us this gift. Our bodies are made a certain way to nurture our children. To a certain point, anyway. I’m not going to be one of those mothers breastfeeding my 3 year old.
On what has surprised her about being pregnant: I’ve just maintained [my weight] well and I’m very surprised about that. I always thought I was going to gain a lot of weight because I’m a big girl naturally. I walk around at 175 pounds, I’m 5’11″, and I love to eat. I [thought] “Oh God, I’m going to be like 250 pounds and huge.” I think a lot of women have that fear. But because I’m already a big girl, I was just imagining myself to be this giant.
On how she decided to have a home birth: I saw Ricki Lake’s documentary, The Business of Being Born. I think all women kind of like to be in control, but I want to really experience [the birth]. Society tells you, “You get pregnant, you go to the hospital,” and that was just naturally what I was going to do, but once I saw that there was another option, it just fit me. I want to be fully present—I don’t want any medications. I just want to be in control of the situation—as much as I can be anyway. It’s not for everybody. So you have to do your research and at least be informed. Even if you don’t decide to do a home birth or work with a midwife, you can at least be aware of the fact that you can have a voice at the hospital. And make sure you pick a good doctor.
On feeling any trepidation about giving birth: Now if I was the first woman in the world having a baby, I’d be scared to death! I have never experienced it for myself, but I see all of these other women that I know are nowhere near as strong as I am physically, emotionally, mentally. So if they can do it, so can I. There’s gonna be pain, and my thing is learning the ways to reduce that pain, and to be in control of yourself so you’re not making it worse and working against yourself. I feel like I have an advantage just with my mind-set and with my experiences as an athlete and knowing my body.
On what kind of mother she hopes to be: I hope to be patient and fair and just a good example to my kids…and consistent. I think that it’s important to teach kids values and morals and how to love themselves and be a leader not a follower. Hopefully I won’t be too strict, because that’s something that I could see myself doing—being too protective and too strict.
On things about her own parents she’d like to avoid or emulate: I have lots of things I want to avoid. Some people loved everything about their parents, but I don’t know many. My dad has always taught us never to step on people to get ahead. He treated people with love and respect no matter what their position in life was—I learned that from him. Both of my parents, regardless of their faults, are good-hearted people, and that’s what’s important to me.
