Just ask Gwen Stefani. In a recent interview in Showbiz Spy, Gwen admits to barely coping with motherhood while trying to record No Doubt’s first album in ten years. She has sons Kingston, six, and four-year-old Zuma with husband Gavin Rossdale. Here’s an excerpt from the interview. “I’d 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. At four o’clock I’d be like, ‘I’m out of here. I’m going to go the studio and try to write a record.’ I’d sit on the couch and I’d be like, ‘Let’s do this NOW because I’m missing time with the kids.’ 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.”
When No Doubt is on the road, a professional nanny helps Gavin with the kids.
