Gwen Stefani’s got love (husband Gavin Rossdale), an angel (son Kingston, 6 months) and music (a new album, The Sweet Escape) – now all she needs is another baby.
“I pray that I can have another baby,” Stefani, 37, tells USA Today. “I mean, it’s such a miracle to have one. And there’s so much I still want to do, because who knows? Things could be a lot harder a few years from now. I mean, I’m not at the beginning of my career. I’m on a ticking clock. And I don’t want to miss anything.”
Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, who was born on May 26 in Los Angeles, is already a show-business professional, says his mom.
“There’s this huge team of us always hanging out together, so he gets to see the same people every day,” Stefani says of her entourage of stylists, dancers and others. “And he’s this very cool, chilled-out little guy. He’s just like another person, except that he’s super-cute and super-entertaining.”
Stefani is planning to tour in the spring behind her new album with Kingston in tow, and although spending the first four and a half months of her pregnancy on the road for her solo debut, Love. Angel. Music. Baby, was “gnarly,” these days she’s got an abundance of energy.
“I’m still nursing,” she says, “and I think it gives you superhuman powers.”
Another superhuman feat: Losing her pregnancy weight in a few short months. “That was one of the hardest things for me,” she says, “the pressure of, ‘OK, I need to get into shape so that I can put this record out.’ If I didn’t have that pressure, I don’t think I would have gotten the baby weight off so quickly.”
