Gwen Stefani had struggled over motherhood. The American singer-songwriter, fashion designer and occasional actress, best known as the lead vocalist of the rock band Ska and No Doubt admits she used to get stressed out by motherhood.
She and her husband Gavin Rossdale, who are e parents of two wonderful children, six year old Kingston and four year old Zuma, found it hard to cope with demands from recording the band’ first album in over ten years along with her home life an also being a mother, she admits that it,
“really hard” to cope.
“I would be up all night because my second baby didn’t sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections,” she said.
“Then I’d wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them to preschool — da, da, da.
“At four o’clock, I’d be like, ‘All right, I’m out of here. I’m going to go to the studio and try to write a record.’ I’d sit on the couch [with my band mates] and be like, ‘Let’s do this now, because I’m missing time with the kids. I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.’ It was really hard.
“This past year, I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up.”
