Singer Gwen Stefani had struggled to balance her family and also her band, No Doubt. The forty two year old who has two children along with her husband Gavin Rossdale, one is six year old Kingston and the other is four year old Zuma does admit that was hard to keep up the needs of her boys and the band’s reunion.
”We were only able to get together three days a week and, because I had the kids, there was only a limited amount of time.
”I was exhausted by the time I got there, so it was a struggle trying to weigh and balance everything out with the kids. But it was that fight that made the record so great.”
She found even more difficult considering she just had Kingston. Gwen added:
”I went round the world with Kingston on my own and that was really hard. I was nursing him for 14 months so I would nurse, go on stage and wake up through the night and on the bus, and it was just like, ‘What am I doing?’ It was so hard.”
Stefani’s band mates, parents and guitarist Tom Dumont had expressed that their experiences helped shape their new album, ‘Push and Shove’.
”There’s a lot of kids between us so we’re pulled in many different directions but we’re so proud of this record and we put a lot of time into it.”
