Gwen Stefani Says Balance Between Work And Motherhood Is Impossible


Gwen Stefani dishes on being a working mum in ELLE UK’s October issue.

The No Doubt singer and mum to Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4, opens up about the false belief that there’s a magical way to find balance between working full time and mothering full time.

Gwen’s view on finding that perfect balance: “It’s not possible. There are always days that somebody suffers… The only thing I really worry about is, again… how do I do this and that? How do I do both? So that’s like the constant battle that I have every day. I do worry about that all the time. Being a mum is hard, I think a lot of working mums feel that way. [They want] to have time to be themselves as well, but it’s really hard; there’s a price to pay. Like today, I’m here talking to you and my son is at the beach. It would be super fun to watch his little four-year-old chunky legs running around, you know.”

Do you agree with Gwen? Do you think it’s a lost cause to try to find a way to balance both?
