Being a mom is a hard job, but having two boys so close together, that makes it that much harder. "From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never, knew they would be so physical. They're just starting to play real together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other -- especially the little one, he really loves his older brother." At one point the No Doubt frontwoman had dreams of adding a third child into the mix, saying, "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."
As for her 10 year marriage to Gavin Rossdale, well that she considers her "biggest accomplishment." Gwen dished, "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."
Adding, "[Our relationship] is better than it's ever been. Like, we're learning about each other all the time. He's an amazing dad, he works so hard - I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me! He balances me out. And he - he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does."
How cute is Gwen gushing about her man?
