Gwen Stefani: I Hope Kingston Doesn't "Turn Out to Be a Freak"


Gwen Stefani says she’s changed since her rocker days with No Doubt.

“Now I’m a wife and a mother of two. It’s a really different role,” Gwen told the July issue of Elle. Kingston is 3, and baby Zuma is 9-months-old.

“I always referred to No Doubt as a marriage, because that’s what it’s like to be together for so long and go through what we’ve been through,” said Gwen – who wed Gavin Rossdale in 2002. “I can’t really have that relationship with them anymore. My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now. That’s a huge, huge thing.”

Gwen – who’s currently on tour with No Doubt – shared that she struggles with songwriting while raising her kids.

“It’s one thing when you have an infant, but when you have this two-or three-year-old going, ‘Mommy, what’s the deal?’ It’s harder. Kingston’s whole thing is, ‘I need, I need.’ He is insane right now.

“We’re just hoping for the best and that he’s not going to turn out to be a freak, but we’ll see,” she continued.

Gwen said she “might never be able to write another song. Who knows? I did try. So here we are, going on a tour without a new record.”

She’s not too worked up about it.

“But, then I think, what I’ve gone through is major, right? I got married and had two human beings come out of my body — plus two albums and two clothing lines that were born during the same period. I’m still nursing! I’m a little sucked dry.

“Like maybe once I sleep through the night, maybe I’ll be able to write a song. That’s where I’m at,” she said.

    Yes, the first 3-4 years are very demanding. After 5 they become easier, I think. I guess she is very hands-on and she is very busy with that tour project and the kids. I would say, that after the tour and after Zuma is old enough to play with Kingston she will feel like she never has time for anything. But it will change and I’m pretty sure she’ll write songs once more.

    It’s so refreshing to hear a celeb mom NOT blowing sunshine out her bum about motherhood. It IS hard, if you do it yourself, that is. And from her comments, I think Gwen must be very hands-on.

    I don’t particularly care for Gwens music but I do like her and her family. I think they are a lovely and loving family and obviously have their priorites straight. Kingston seems to take everything in stride and is well rounded. I think Gwen and Gavin are great parents.
