Hey, baby: Gwen Stefani is having another boy!

The No Doubt frontwoman and her husband, musician Gavin Rossdale, are expecting their third son, Stefani announced Friday on Instagram.

“I was ready to hand over the crown. But I guess I am still queen of the house. #itsaboy #surroundedbyboys” she writes.

The couple — who have been married for 11 years and together for 16 — are already parents to sons Kingston James McGregor, 7½, and Zuma Nesta Rock, 5.

Despite being happy with her two kids, Stefani, 44, has hinted that she once hoped for a third child, although ultimately her dreams didn’t unfold as planned — until now.

“I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out,” she told Marie Claire in September 2012.

“So … I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”

Bush singer Rossdale, 48, is also dad to Daisy Lowe, 24, his daughter from a previous relationship.

Miss K on

I love Gwen. Congrats!!!!

Brittany on

Congrats to Gwen! When I was pregnant with my second child, I was really hoping for another boy because the idea of two boys close in age was such a sweet thought for me. However, I had a beautiful little girl last month and I have to say one of each is pretty good too!!

rlb237 on

I have to admit, I was hoping she would have a girl…sounds like she was hoping for that too, but I’m sure she & Gavin are just happy to have another child to love!

Congrats to them and to the boys!

TMac on

congrats to the Rossdales…can’t wait to hear the name this time around:)

rockybopper on

I really thought this was going to be a wee lady. Congrats to them!

Erin on

At her age, I’m sure she is just thankful for a healthy baby, no matter the gender!

Amp88 on

I was really hoping to hear that it was a girl, but at least with another boy she can use the hand me downs.

Congrats to the happy couple, and I hope the remaining pregnancy goes smoothly. :)

LANI on

She is one of the few that look so great at 44. She’s healthy and any woman can have a baby at that age and still feel good.

Congrats to her. She’s going to have so many boys take care of her (her husband and her sons)!!! =) That’s awesome!

Erica on

Awww.. I was hoping for a girl, as I’m sure Gwen was too. 3 boys is a lot!

Patti on

awwh I really wanted her to have a girl…I mean, first and foremost a healthy baby, but I was rooting for a girl LOL….

Karen on

Aw, I was hoping she’d have a girl. I think that would’ve been the sweetest thing. Oh well… I guess its not in the cards for her.

Afaden28 on

I was hoping they were having a girl. But they could be like Posh and Becks and have a 4th that’s a girl!

Dee on

So happy for them. I’m currently expecting my 3rd son too! And although I’ll admit I was hoping MORE for a girl (for obvious reasons) I am more than happy with my son. In the end, boys or girls, they are still your children, and gender should not play a role in how much you love them.

Susan on

Congrats to both of them. I had 3 boys and was glad I never had a girl. Boys are just so much fun !!!!!!!!!! I am now making up for it with my 4 granddaughters !!!!!! :)

OhBoy on

Why can’t she ‘hand over the crown’ to her stepdaughter?

carla on

OhBoy,

Probably because her stepdaughter is 24 and will not be raised by Gwen in her home. Obviously, she is talking about HER home here.

Julia on

AWWW! As the mother of 3 boys, it is a crazy, hectic, but absolutely wonderful life! Congrats to their beautiful family!

Lis on

Congrats to Gwen! I have two little boys myself :) I can totally picture having a third :)

sue's on

Boys are awesome… Congrats to both of you

Crystal on

I was really hoping for a girl this time! :( 3 boys is AWESOME though. Congrats to the Rossdales. I know he’s going to be a towheaded cutie!!! ♡

jamie on

There’s no way Gwen is 44…!!!! she looks amazing….she looks like shes still only 30!!

ERIKA on

Hopefully she treated Daisy, her stepdaughter, as she was growing upo otherwise this third son could be Gwen’s karma paying her back. I have yet to see pics ever of Gavin with Gwen and Daisy together which I find very odd if his kids are Gwens kids too.

Miss Ann on

Awww, man I was hoping she was going to have a girl so we can see a Mini-Gwen dressed in ruffles and bows.

Jen on

Gwen, I had three boys and then I had a princess, so, unless you are willing to give it one more try, boys rule!

kait on

I just found out im having my second boy…..and am living with my boys father as well as his son from a previous relationship….so i feel like Gwen , totally outnumbered! But sometimes we dont always get what we want but what we NEED! Plus i think its sooo fun trying to dress boys in a unique and cool fashion….actually Kingston and Yuma are my style inspiration or my boys! There is NOTHING like a mommas boy either, shes gonna have triple the mother-love!

bitsy on

God bless them all. 3 boys will be a handful though. although i am partial to boys myself!

Jessica on

She probably expected another boy (theres some fact that if your first two children are the same sex, the likelihood of the rest of them will be that same gender is very high). BUT I wish she had a girl… imagine the outfits!

shannon on

Erika,

Gavin and Gwen just found out a few years ago that Daisy was his daughter, so you wouldn’t see any pictures of them together when she was growing up.

I was hoping she would have a girl but all babies are a blessing. Congrats!

Penny on

Ericka –

Gavin didn’t actually find out Daisy was his daughter until she was in her late teens. I don’t think there are a lot of pictures because she has always been an adult since the news came out. Kind of living her own life outside of the Rossdales.

elizabeth rupe on

Gwen are you going to name your son a real name like Grant or Robert cause the first 2 have weird names?

Happy on

First of all wonderful news, hoping for happiness and good healthy life. Wow I did not realize her age. I became a grandmother twice by then. I guess have maids and cooks helps out. But anyways may he bring lots of joy.

cj on

sweet! a baby is a blessing .. I wish them well!

Angela on

I don’t think she ages…at all. She looks exactly like she did many years ago! She’s beautiful and they seem to be really wonderful parents. Wish them the best!

Noneya on

Congrats to Gwen & Gavin! Boys are awesome! My third grandson is due in about 28 days now and I can’t wait to meet him!

from heather.

JulieB on

I thought maybe she needed help to conceive this baby (IVF) and that’s why I was sure it was going to be a girl. This proves it was a natural thing.

Anonymous on

Elizabeth, their first two kids have REAL names. Real names that THEY love!

PG on

she is 44!!!!!!!! Kudos to you Gwen you look fabulous.

Erin on

who cares if she has a boy or a girl…its a healthy baby!!

Edie on

3 boys; a blessing…

Congratulations to her and her hubby and big brothers

Isabel on

Congratulations to Gavin and Gwen!

I have three boys, too, and there’s nothing better than watching them grow and interact with one another.

Ali on

:(

Kresta on

Oh dear! Another boy with dyed hair and weird clothes? I could so see Gwen and Gavin with 3 girls instead of 3 boys.

Holiday on

she has to be disappointed as she always gushes that she wants a girl. Every woman wants a daughter. It’s a fact of life

Anonymous on

I’m actually more surprised at the fact that she finally confirmed her pregnancy (not that she needed to at this point, we all have eyes after all! ;)) than that she’s having a third boy! ;)

I just hope she’s not too dissapointed she’s not getting her girl.

DIONNE on

Dear Gwen, please don’t be sad. Even though a little girl would have been wonderful, that tiny bundle will bring you so much joy and love. If this is your last, take in every sweet moment because babies grow fast.

Ashley on

Congrats Gwen..ur very pretty😍 I’m ur fan I love ur songs😍 I hope u have a healthy baby and pregnancy.u got two handsome sons😊

Becky on

Had a feeling she looked like she was carrying a 3rd son, but was hoping for a little girl for them. Congrts to them both.

dolphintam on

bummer….sucks to have ANOTHER boy,I am 100% you were disappointed when you got the news…

Anonymous on

What a bunch of man-hating little troll biatches on this site. I’d rather have three sons than a whole housefull of stupid, vapid, snarky, emotionally-driven little snatches like the majority of you who are posting. Why don’t you go volunteer at a center where parents have lost a child and then make your seriously deranged comments on how you shouldn’t be happy to have a healthy child no matter the sex. You should be completely ashamed and embarrassed of yourselves.

Ali on

Congrats on the baby boy! I have to admit that this news actually bummed me a bit. I was hoping to see Gwen with a little girl JUST to see how she would style her since she lets her boys have such a unique fashion sense.

Seems like a LOT of little boys are being born in the celeb world right now! Megan Fox is coming up next with another boy. It’s boy boom time!

Anonymous on

Ali- When did Megan say she’s having another boy?

Isabel on

Oh, Holiday, you grace us with your presence again.

meghan on

Holiday, you forgot to criticize Gwen for being an older parent.

littlekitti on

Hilarious how rude people are about having all boys. I have three myself and they are an absolute hoot. I have heard every insult in the book about having three boys and really people can go jump.

No-one should EVER comment negatively on the gender make-up of another person’s family. Whether you know it or not, you are always thought of as somewhat ignorant and rude by the parent you express it to.

A massive, joyful congrats to Gwen and Gavin, and to little Kingston and Zuma on becoming big brothers to a baby bro! My older two adore their baby.

Holiday on

Isabel and Anon- I am not the only one who said Gwen must be disappointed. Most people on this page said something similar to what I said. Gwen has said in many interviews how disappointed she was to find out Zuma was a boy so third boy has to be hard to take.

solasduran on

As long as everyone is healthy, no matter the gender, that’s what we wish. Enjoy them all!

Laura on

I have 3 boys and couldn’t be happier. They love each other, play great together, and are best friends.

Celebrities need to be careful what they say in the media and consider how their children could be affected (such as feeling unwanted for being a boy).

Two Cents on

Is there anyone that comments here that’s over 25? I mean, “she’s one of the few that look good at 44″ and “can’t believe she’s 44, she looks 30!”.

Wake the freak up, ladies. You don’t die at 40 of old age. If you’re lucky, in time you’ll see you can still be a happy, healthy, fashionable, attractive woman at that age, at any age. Quit being so shallow and narrow-minded with your comments. No wonder little so many girls grow up with such self-image issues. It’s ingrained in so many adults!

With that being said, congratulations to the entire family. They have always seemed like the real deal to me and three little boys in the house will be a hoot.

k on

I will never understand why people focus on which sex they will have. You get what you are meant to, you cant control it so let it go!

Love the boy trio, they will all protect their mama like a pride of lions. All that male bonding is great!
