Showbiz Spy reports: The No Doubt star — who has sons Kingston, six, and four-year-old Zuma with her husband Gavin Rossdale — couldn’t cope with the demands of recording Push and Shove, the band’s first album in ten years, with her home life and being a devoted mother and said she found it “really hard” to cope.
“I would be up all night because my second baby didn’t sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections,” she said.
“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.
“At four 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.’ I’d sit on the couch [with my band mates] 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.
“This past year, I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up.”
