Gwen Stefani graces the cover Marie Claire's October 2012 issue wearing a sporty, belly baring ensemble featuring a green military-inspired jacket. Her accompanying editorial has her featured in ensembles from Jason Wu, Donna Karan and Alice + Olivia. Inside the singer talks about her upcoming ten year anniversary with husband, Gavin Rossdale, and her busy schedule while recording the album Push and Shove.
Gwen on her hectic schedule while recoding "Push and Shove": "I would be up all night because my second baby [Zuma, now 4] didn't sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections. Then I'd wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them to preschool, da-da-da. And then at 4 o'clock, I'd be like, 'All right, I'm out of here, I'm going to go to the studio' and try to write a record. Sit on the couch [with my bandmates] and be like, 'Let's do this now because I'm missing time with the kids; I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.' It was really hard."
Gwen on having a third child: “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.”
Gwen on what her 10 year anniversary with Gavin Rossdale represents: “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.”
Will you pick up a copy of the magazine when it hits newsstands on September 18th? This is Gwen's third cover in the last two months. Which one is your favorite? Her Harper's Bazaar September 2012 cover, the Elle UK October 2012 cover or this one?
