Celebrity mum and singer Gwen Stefani has been married to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale for more than a decade and shares two sons with him, Kingston and Zuma. Gwen shares in the new issue of Vogue how her view of life with kids has changed over the last few years.
Gwen says that making it past the 10 year mark as a couple feels really good. “It’s pride. You feel proud. There are just so many rewards that come with it. But, actually, it’s fun to get to this point. Because you learn so much about somebody. It’s like these wars that go on and then you kind of get through to the other side, and it’s like, ‘Wow.’”
She shares that once they brought kids into the equation, everything changed – for the better. “Having kids takes the whole relationship to another place. It is the ultimate collaboration. Both of us have such strong opinions about how it should be, and it’s really fun to do it together.”
Gwen says as their boys get older, they realise how drastically their life has truly changed. “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, ‘Ahhh!’”
