Celeb mum reveals ‘price to pay’ for balancing pop career and parenthood
Gwen Stefani has spoken out about the challenges of motherhood, admitting, “Being a mum is hard, I think a lot of working mums feel that way”.
Speaking to ELLE, the No Doubt singer sympathised with other parents who juggle kids and a career, saying, “There’s a price to pay. Like today, I’m 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”.
Mum-of-two Gwen also spoke about the different stages of parenthood, musing on newborns, “You have a little less sleep and you drag these cuddly things around with you and its just amazing. But you still get to be you.
“Once they get to like five, six and school and it starts to get, like, ‘wow they got real problems. They’re my responsibility…’ Oh my god. That is overwhelming.”
Judging by the precocious punk stylings of sons Kingston, six, and Zuma, four, we reckon Gwen may need to brace herself for the teenage years too…
