Gwen Stefani Says Returning to Her Band Was a "Nice Break" From Being Mom

It’s hard work being a mom and it’s no different for a superstar.

The day is fast approaching where Gwen Stefani and her bandmates from No Doubt will have their 6th studio album Push and Shove released. Gwen chatted with the people from New York Magazine‘s Vulture to talk about the long period between albums and how they are all making it work now that they’re parents.

No Doubt’s last album was back in 2001 and since Gwen Stefani — the lead singer for the band has had 2 children Kingston, born on May 26, 2006 and son Zuma, born on August 21, 2008 and it has changed the dynamic of the group (who are also parents themselves), but not necessarily in a bad way.

“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” Gwen said when asked how parenthood has changed the band.

Gwen then went on further to explain, “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,” she said, laughing. “No Spider-Man for me tonight, but that’s okay. I’ll take a break.”

It’s nice to see a band who can stay together after getting famous and be so supportive of each other’s personal lives and still come back after 9 years.
