Check out the cover of Gwen Stefani Elle Magazine July 2009 issue here. Stefani sits down with Elle to chat about her life as a mother, balancing her career and family life and reuniting with her band No Doubt. Check out some of the highlights below.

ON BEING A MOTHER:

It’s one thing when you have an infant, but when you have this two-or three-year-old going, ‘Mommy, what’s the deal?’ it’s harder. Kingston’s whole thing is, ‘I need, I need.’ He is insane right now. We’re just hoping for the best and that he’s not going to turn out to be a freak, but we’ll see.”

ON BEING A CELEBRITY:

Obviously, I’m not anything more than I am. I’m just, like, totally normal. The fact that any of this has happened, that we’re sitting here at the Beverly Hills Hotel just gets me going, like, What?”

ON LEAVING NO DOUBT:

Everybody’s making it like there’s all this new tension, you know, like I stepped away from the band and now they’re jealous of me, and look, maybe there is a little bit of that.”

ON HOW HER PRIORITIES CHANGED FROM BAND TO FAMILY:

I wasn’t even married. Now I’m a wife and a mother of two. It’s a really different role. I always referred to No Doubt as a marriage, because that’s what it’s like to be together for so long and go through what we’ve been through. I can’t really have that relationship with them anymore. My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now. That’s a huge, huge thing.”

The Gwen Stefani Elle magazine cover and interview further proves that Gwen is still fabulous and fierce as ever.
