Rocker mom Gwen Stefani assumes the position of cover girl on the Oct. 2009 issue of Glamour, on newsstands Sept. 8. On the pages of this month’s mag, the No Doubt frontwoman speaks candidly about her life with hubby Gavin Rossdale and their young sons, Kingston and Zuma, and penchant for avoiding the pitfalls of tabloid stardom.
Gwen On Hubby Gavin Rossdale: “I always thought he’d be a good dad,” she says. “And he has basically lived up to that and beyond, beyond. He’s very, very passionate, and he’s very intense. He’s made to be a dad. I’m very lucky.”
Gwen Explains Why We Rarely Read About Her In The Tabloids: “Maybe my crazy time is coming up. Let’s see what happens. Maybe I’m just a late bloomer. But I think it’s also just my nature.”
Gwen Credits Her Parents With Keeping Her Out Of Trouble: “I was thinking today when I was driving, ‘How am I going to make sure that [my son] Kingston never does anything bad and doesn’t get arrested?’ I was thinking, ‘How did I stay out of trouble?’ And I know it’s just ’cause my parents are so strict,” she says. “I mean, I’m still scared of them.”
Gwen On Her Blonde Hair And Red Lipstick: “That’s my whole obsession with old Hollywood. I always loved watching all those old movies, and still doâ€”if I had time.”
What Surprises Her About Being A Mother: “How hard it is…everything from getting up in the morning to trying to be consistent to trying to have the right feelings. But, of course, the rewards are so great.”
