If you thought Gwen Stefani’s third pregnancy was a surprise, just ask Gwen herself! The latest Voice judge welcomed a boy, Apollo Bowie Flynn, with husband Gavin Rossdale this past February, and claims that she wasn’t even expecting to get pregnant at all.
“I had no idea I was going to have another baby, which is such a blessing and so incredible,” she reveals on Late Night with Seth Meyers. It turns out, baby No. 3 was all thanks to her eldest son, 8-year-old Kingston.
"He has like a direct link to God, basically. He asked me, 'Mom, are you gonna have a baby? I want you to have a baby,'" Gwen explains. "I was like, 'It's over. We're not having any more. This is our family.'"
Gwen goes on to imitate her son who would say, “‘Dear God, please let my mom have a baby. Please, God! Please let my mom have a baby!'" Next thing she knows, Gwen’s carrying her third child! "I swear to you, he prayed every single night and four weeks later I was pregnant,” she adds.
"I brought out a cake after we found out it was really going to happen, and it said, 'We're having a baby!' I made him read it...and he goes, 'Ah! I prayed for that!'" A few months later, little Apollo finally joined his two older brothers, Kingston and 6-year-old Zuma.
Now, this isn’t the first time Kingston has prayed for something. According to his mama, the 8-year-old prays for pretty much everything — including food! “He's like, 'Please, God! Please let me have another cupcake!' He really believes." This kid’s got a gift!
Now, we wonder if Kingston ever got any pointers from Halle Berry’s eldest daughter, 6-year-old Nahla, who also prayed for her mama to have another baby (she recently gave birth to son, Maceo-Robert Martinez). These kids are certainly on to something...
