Gwen Stefani on Being a Working Mom: 'There's a Price to Pay'
Singer and fashion designer Gwen Stefani graces the October cover of Elle UK magazine, chatting about the pressures of being a working mom of sons Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4.
“Being a mom is hard, I think a lot of working moms feel that way,” Stefani admitted to the mag.” [They want] to have time to be themselves as well, but it's really hard; there's a price to pay. Like today, I'm here talking to you and my son is at the beach. It would be super fun to watch his little four-year-old chunky legs running around, you know.”
On balancing work and motherhood, the No Doubt singer said, “It's not possible. There are always days that somebody suffers... The only thing I really worry about is, again… how do I do this and that? How do I do both? So that's like the constant battle that I have every day. I do worry about that all the time.”
One thing that helps is her love for fashion. “I just love getting dressed. It wouldn't matter that there were people waiting outside my house or not, I would always get properly dressed. Ask anyone from before, from the first nine years [of the band], any of my friends.”
