Gwen Stefani Talks Candidly About Motherhood: “It’s Not What You Think It’s Going to Be”
If there’s one celebrity mom that we’re pretty certain has superpowers, it’s Gwen Stefani. She’s got a powerhouse music career, total fashion cred with her L.A.M.B. line, and two adorable boys with her rockstar husband (and total hottie) Gavin Rossdale. Basically, we bow down.
Recently she spilled to Vogue magazine how she does it all — specifically how motherhood threw her a curveball, by starting out one way, and turning out to be another. Uh, we definitely get that one, Gwen, and wish that more moms would open up about it!
Gwen reveals, “It’s super fun being a mom, but it’s not what you think it’s going to be. And it’s really gradual. At first, your life is totally the same. You have this cute little thing that you get to drive around everywhere and you’re so proud and it’s amazing.”
But now that her boys — Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 3 — are getting older, she’s starting to feel the weight of motherhood. She adds, “And as they grow older, it really does start to change your life. Like, Oh, my God, they have school, they have to get through first grade, they have to learn to read.”
