Gwen Stefani is both a mom, to Kingston, 3, and Zuma, 1, and a career woman. I love how she can balance both while still being married to Gavin Rossdale. Gwen is the cover girl for the September 2009 issue of Glamour magazine. Inside she talks about family and being a mother here are the highlights:On how growing up in a close family influenced her: I grew up in a normal family. I have sweet parents, who are still married. They’re watching my child right now. But my life is so different from how I thought it would be. Yesterday was the craziest day ever—I managed to accomplish so many things. And at the end of the night, I was there with [Kingston] putting him to bed, reading all his books, getting his diaper on and putting him in his crib. Then I got [Zuma], nursed him, put him to sleep. Then I went to a Hollywood party! [Laughs.] It is extremely different from how my parents raised me.
On what has surprised her most about being a mother: How hard it is. I’ve always worked really hard, and the hardest thing I’ve ever done is have kids. All of it [is hard]—everything from getting up in the morning to trying to be consistent to trying to have the right feelings. But, of course, the rewards are so great.On what she would say if Kingston said he wanted to be a drummer: Well, Kingston walked into a room the other day with a guitar, singing his song. I was thinking, Oh my God. [Laughs.] But whatever. Everything that we were passionate about, my parents supported it. But they always made it really clear that those kinds of things, those dreams, never come true. And then you have your backup plan. You go to school. That was the way I was taught—[making it big] doesn’t happen to people. And then it did.On Gavin being a great dad: I always thought he’d be a good dad. [Laughs.] And he has basically lived up to that and beyond, beyond. He’s very, very passionate, and he’s very intense. He’s made to be a dad. I’m very lucky.

Elle is a worldwide magazine that focuses on women’s fashion, beauty, health, and entertainment. It was founded by Pierre Lazareff and his wife H?l?ne Gordon in 1945. The title, in French, means “she”.
Elle was founded in France in 1945. In 1981, Daniel Filipacchi and Jean-Luc Lagard?re purchased Hachette magazines, which included the then-struggling Elle. Elle was then launched in the U.S. (News Corporation owned a stake in the US edition until 1988), followed by 25 foreign editions.
It is now the world’s largest fashion magazine, with 39 international editions in over 60 countries. Technologically speaking, the Elle brand is a global network encompassing over 20 websites.
