Gwen Stefani Would Feel 'Blessed' If One of Her Kids Were Gay
Us Weekly reports that Gwen Stefani says she would feel "blessed" if one of her sons ever came out to her as gay.
In an interview with LGBT outlet PrideSource, Gwen raved about the support she has received from her gay friends during the collapse of her marriage to Gavin Rossdale, and asserted she would be a very accepting mom of a gay child.
Gwen told writer Chris Azzopardi, "I would be blessed with a gay son. You know that I would feel blessed about that. I just want my boys to be happy and healthy, and I just ask God to guide me every day to be a good mother because it is not an easy job."
She said her boyfriend Blake Shelton is perfectly comfortable with her gay posse, teasing, "...Blake's mom was a hairdresser growing up, so he was definitely introduced to that world a looong time ago."
Speaking on the topic of being a pop star over 40, Gwen admitted she has had her insecurities, saying, "There was a moment... in-between (2012's No Doubt release) 'Push and Shove' and 'The Voice, where I was concerned about it and desperate to have new music and it took a little earthquake to be like, 'Okay, let's get some perspective here. You've already had the longest career. You're so blessed to have any of this and any of this that happens after this is literally icing on the cake.'"
She went on to say, "I'm not delusional about where I'm at in my career. I know that this opportunity to have new music is magical, and there's not one second that I don't appreciate it and I think it is what it is. I feel proud of the career that I've had and I feel so grateful for it and I mean, we all have to go through life. This is life. Life is... 'born to blossom and bloom to perish.' That's it. That is what it is. And the way to do it is to be grateful and to be spiritual and try to do the best you can every single day — to be in the moment."
Gwen is currently riding high with the success of her new solo album "This Is What the Truth Feels Like."
