Gwen Stefani: Motherhood Can Be “Overwhelming”

Gwen Stefani Elle UK October 2012Gwen Stefani has opened about being a mother in the latest issue of Elle UK.

The singer who covers the magazine admits that she loves being a mom, but it’s difficult to juggle everyone’s needs.

“When you first have a baby your life doesn’t change. I mean, you have a little less sleep and you drag these cuddly things around you and it’s 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,” the mother to sons Kingston and Zuma tells.

“I’ve been with Gavin for 14 years, and, let’s face it, that is a huge accomplishment. I feel so proud of that — it hasn’t been the easiest journey He’s home now for, like, seven days, so just him being home makes everything different. In a good way. But also in a hard way because it changes everything.”
