Gwen Stefani Admits She Struggled With Motherhood
Gwen Stefani admitted she used to get stressed out by motherhood.
She explained she couldn’t cope with the demands of recording No Doubt’s first album in ten years with her home life and being a devoted mother.
Gwen has sons Kingston, six, and four-year-old Zuma with husband Gavin Rossdale and
She said: “I would 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, ‘All right, I’m out of here. I’m going to go to the studio and try to write a record.’ I’d sit on the couch and be like, ‘Let’s do this now, because I’m missing time with the kids. I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.’ 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.”
