Gwen Stefani revealed that motherhood is NOT an easy thing to conquer, but despite all the stress, she said that it's also "fun" being a mom.
No Doubt's front woman snatched a spot on Vogue's January 2013 issue, and in it, she gives out info on motherhood and being preggers while she recorded her first album!
Here are the HIGHlights:
"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. 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. It starts getting so serious, and you’re like, Aaaaaaah!"
On recording her first album while she was with child:
"I did my first solo record and went on tour while I was pregnant. I would want to throw up during certain songs. Certain outfits would make me sick. It was torture. I toured until I was four and a half months pregnant, showing. I came home and had Kingston, and when he was eight months old, I went back on the road. I nursed him for fourteen months, so I would literally do my hair and makeup, go back to the bus, nurse him, put him down, and walk out onstage. And I did that for 100 shows."
DAYUM! Gwen is a SUPER MOM!
Being a mommy is hard in general, but being a mother with a tour and a record seems like the most difficult task in the world. Luckily Miz Stefani has all the skills needed to handle whatever comes to her!!
Werk out with your bad self gurl!!
