Gwen Stefani shows off her ridiculously toned stomach on the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s October 2012 issue. Inside, Gwen talks about the past few years, having a third child, and her marriage to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale.
On the past few years: “I was definitely swimming upstream, trying to balance everything that’s been going on with having kids and a family. There’s no way to do all these things.”
On having a third child: “I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out. So… I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”
On what her ten-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale represents: “A miracle… my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”
