Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale welcomed their second child, a son, on Thursday in LA. Rumors that they had welcomed their second child had been swirling earlier today.
Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale was born at 12:46 p.m. and weighed 8 1/2 lbs. He joins the couple’s other son Kingston, 2.
“Kingston, Gwen and Gavin Rossdale welcomed the newest member of their family,” they said in a statement. “Mother, baby and family are all happy and healthy.
Gwen, 38, who is one of four children herself, has spoken openly about her hope for more children. “I’m in a race to have another,” she told InStyle last year before announcing her pregnancy.
Gwen also shared that Gavin is “super into being a dad.”
Gavin, 42, also told People magazine that the couple planned to follow friends’ advice and get a gift for Kingston so he didn’t feel left out when his new sibling arrived. “Apparently when the baby comes home, you’ve got to bring a really good present for Kingston,” he said.
Gavin told People magazine of parenthood, “It’s terrifying and exciting and brilliant.”
UPDATE: “It’s very good news,” Gavin’s father, Dr. Douglas Rossdale, told People magazine from his London home. “We are very pleased for them.”
Gavin, 42, called his family Thursday night from the hospital. “He sounded great,” said Gavin’s father. “Very happy.”
