Gwen Stefani Talks Juggling Her Music Career With Motherhood

According to Gwen Stefani, it’s not easy being one of the most sought-after entertainers in the celebrity world while trying to juggle your home life with your family along with your career. The singer, who is married to rocker Gavin Rossdale, and has two sons, Kingston and Zuma, opens up to Marie Claire UK about how she’s had to give up something in life and “learn to delegate.” She says:

“I was swimming upstream, trying to balance everything that’s been going on with having kids and a family…I would be up all night because my second baby didn’t sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections. Then I’d wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them to preschool – da, da, da.”

She also adds:

“At four o’clock, I’d be like, “All right, I’m out of here. I’m going to go to the studio and try to write a record. I’d sit on the couch [with my band mates] and be like, ‘Let’s do this now, because I’m missing time with the kids. I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.’ It was really hard. This past year, I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up.”
