“Like, 10 years ago, I said, ‘Oh I want to start a clothing line so I can do something creative, for when I have my kids and I can be home and I won’t really be doing music.’ And then here we are!

In 2008, the month after completing a total of 106 live solo shows, Gwen immediately fell pregnant with her second child, Zuma, having already had her first son Kingston while on tour.
Gwen — who is married to Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale — admits her pregnancy ruined plans to reunite with No Doubt that year but she is pleased the group is finally back together now and have released their new album ‘Push and Shove’.
“I had gotten pregnant [with Kingston], went on tour pregnant, and then had the baby and went on tour. It was crazy,” she said.
“I nursed the first baby for like 14 months on tour while doing shows, and then the month I got home I got pregnant with Zuma and that was the month No Doubt were gonna get together to start to write the record, I was just a bit dictated…”
