Gwen Stefani Opens Up About Her Marriage And Having A Third Child In New Marie Claire

Gwen Stefani is not only everyone’s favorite female rocker, but she’s also everyone’s favorite celebrity mom too! The mother-of-two graces the cover of this month’s Marie Claire magazine where she talks about how her marriage to Gavin Rossdale has never been better and how she contemplated having a third child, too. Here are some highlights from her interview:

On rearing two high-energy boys just a few years apart in age: “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 what her 10 year anniversary with Gavin Rossdale represents: “A miracle…my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard.” She continues: “[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 husband Gavin Rossdale: “[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!” Above all, she adds, “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.”

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.”

Gwen Stefani Talks Fashion And Balancing Family

Celebrity mom, singer, and fashionista Gwen Stefani sat down with ELLE UK to chat about the struggle to work full time and be a hands-on mom.

Gwen says of being a working mom, “Being a mom is hard, I think a lot of working moms feel that way. [They want] to have time to be themselves as well, but it’s really hard; there’s a price to pay. Like today, I’m here talking to you and my son is at the beach. It would be super fun to watch his little four-year-old chunky legs running around, you know.”

On fashion: “I just love getting dressed. It wouldn’t matter that there were people waiting outside my house or not, I would always get properly dressed. Ask anyone from before, from the first nine years [of the band], any of my friends.”
