Gwen Stefani is promoting her new album, The Sweet Escape, so she’s on the press circuit. She talked to USA Today about her son Kingston Rossdale, 6 months old, and wanting to have another baby.
About wanting another baby, she said, "I pray that I can have another baby. I mean, it’s such a miracle to have one. And there’s so much I stillwant to do, because who knows? Things could be a lot harder a few yearsfrom now. I mean, I’m not at the beginning of my career. I’m on aticking clock. And I don’t want to miss anything." Gwen is 37 and is well aware that women’s fertility starts to decrease at 35, and then again at 40.
She says that Kingston didn’t influence her The Sweet Escape, "I didn’t have any major direction. I don’t feellike having the baby really shaped my intentions; he was just thismagical thing that happened to me." She says that she didn’t write much during her pregnancy because "I guess I was already creating toomuch — I was on creative overload, you know? So I watched TV and ate."
Kingston is already a seasoned traveller and professional. She said, "There’s this huge team of us always hanging out together, sohe gets to see the same people every day. And he’s this very cool,chilled-out little guy. He’s just like another person, except that he’ssuper-cute and super-entertaining."
And on losing her pregnancy weight, she said, "That was one of the hardest things for me. The pressure of, ‘OK, I need to get into shape so that I can put thisrecord out.’ If I didn’t have that pressure, I don’t think I would havegotten the baby weight off so quickly."
She’s also still nursing and that definitely helps take off the weight. You can burn up to 500 calories a day while exclusively nursing. Gwen believes in the power of breastfeeding- "I’m still nursing and I think it gives you superhuman powers."
By the way, when you put the Sweet Escape CD in your computer, you can download a special video of "What You Waiting For?" from the Harajuku Lovers Live DVD.
