Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s family confirmed to US Weekly that Gwen is expecting the couple’s first baby.
Gwen Stefani, nominated for five Grammy Awards including album of the year for “Love.Angel.Music.Baby.,” is pregnant with her first child, according to Us Weekly. The 36-year-old pop star and Gavin Rossdale, 38, were married three years ago. The baby is due in June, the magazine reported Tuesday. “We are delighted,” Us Weekly quotes Rossdale’s father, Douglas, as saying. Stefani’s mother, Patti, also reportedly confirmed the pregnancy to the magazine. An e-mail from The Associated Press to Stefani’s representative wasn’t immediately returned Tuesday. Rossdale has a 16-year-old daughter, Daisy Lowe, from his relationship with fashion designer Pearl Lowe. He discovered he was the father in 2004 after taking a DNA test. “Love.Angel.Music.Baby.” is Stefani’s first solo album. It includes one of the biggest songs of the year, “Hollaback Girl.” That infectious single also earned Stefani a nomination for record of the year and best female pop vocal performance. She is the lead singer of No Doubt and a budding fashion designer. The British-born Rossdale fronted the rock band Bush, which released the popular 1994 album, “Sixteen Stone.” They last released the 2001 album, “Golden State,” as well as a greatest hits CD in November.”
It’s refreshing to finally get celebrity pregnancy news which doesn’t make me cringe. This one actually has a chance. Odds are the kid will be good looking, talented and its parents will keep it away from groups of people like the dickheads on “Filthy Rich Cattle Drive” (a.k.a. “The Most Useless Human Beings on the Planet”).
