Gwen Stefani On Balancing No Doubt With Being A Mommy

| Filed under: Gwen StefaniMusic MinuteFamilyCeleb KidzPerezcious Parenting

Gwen Stefani has had to precariously balance the life of a rock star with raising her two adorable sons, Kingston & Zuma, and unsurprisingly - it hasn't always been easy.

Here's what she said:

"I don't think [parenthood has] mellowed us out, but priorities have to change. Before, it was unspoken that the band was the No. 1 thing; there was not a girlfriend or someone else that could be before the band. It wasn't even something we discussed, it just was what it was. But we're at a stage where we don't have to be like that anymore; we can kind of do this when we want to do it."

Like do what you want to do and be what you want to be kind of thing?

Here's what she said:

"Like today, for instance, I told them, 'I cannot do twelve-hour days anymore, stop it!' I just missed Kingston and Zuma going to sleep. But I get to talk to you, and it's actually a nice break — my kids are so much work. No Spider-Man for me tonight, but that's okay. I'll take a break."

And when did the band decide to end their hiatus, and start making records again?

Here's what she said:

"And then as soon as I was done with that last [solo] tour, I was done. I was like, Okay, I'm ready; I'm so ready for the No Doubt record. And then I got pregnant with Zuma [her youngest son], and it was really challenging to be pregnant and come off all the stuff I had done, and try to write. And that's why things got really delayed; it was like, impossible. I just couldn't do it; I had nothing left to give. And when I finally had [Zuma], we said, "Let's just go on tour and try to get inspired." And when we came off tour we wrote our first song."

That was, No Doubt, one of the most inspiring interviews we've heard yet!!!
