Gwen Stefani Is Pregnant

According to In Touch, they claim that Gwen Stefani is pregnant with her third child. The 43 year old Gwen already has a seven year old and a five year old and this one comes as a bit of a shocker. I have to tell you that I heard their marriage has been on the rocks for at least a year and that they were barely hanging on by a thread and now she is pregnant. Apparently that make up sex must have been pretty good and at just the right time or they decided a baby would save the marriage. Gwen has not confirmed it yet and she was looking really slim in a bikini (above) last week, but then again, she is a tiny person and the magazine didn't say how far along she is.

Well both she and Tony's wife are pregnant, then, so that must've put an end to any funny bizness that was going on between Gwen and Tony, for now. I really wish her baby would come out brown this time, though. ;) lol

cool cool cool said...

But how will they top the name Zuma?

FrenchGirl said...

Worse than Titanic fans or Xfiles fans,No Doubt fans who want that Gwen comeback with Tony

If the pregnancy is true,i believe she would like a girl

MISCH said...

There was a blind over a month ago about her and this

Cookies said...

Yah! Congrats

Christopher Cruz said...

Gavin gives me the creeps- how can she let him touch her?

Susan said...

I love Gwen. Wonder if it's true.

Bianca Taylor said...

I stood next to them in line at legoland in June and they were very affectionate and loving towards each other...I tried to get my 5y/o son to make friends with her sons lol

I don't believe this. But we shall see.

Burnt Crepes said...

Doesnt shock me one bit, been expecting it for two reasons: 1--theres nothing like a Band Aid baby to repair a marriage, according to standard Hollywood thinking and 2--she's gotta show off that shes still fertile at her age. And yes youre hearing bitterness in my comment: my mom and grandma both hit menopause at 43, and Im almost 40 and childless.
Some beeyoutches have all the luck. :'(

sandybrook said...

Its In Touch guys they are almost never right about anything :(

Seachica said...

@cool - Maybe the new baby will be named Loko?

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

I'm pretty sure that if she's pregnant it's via IVF. She had a rumored pregnancy in 2010 which ended in miscarriage, so I'm sure they're on tenterhooks right now. She has been wearing sea-bands a lot lately, so I think it's likely she is pregnant right now.

French Girl - I'm still waiting for Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham to get back together!

HannahBanana said...

I'd like to see her having a lil girl...the clothes that child would wear! Suri would have to burn the burn book! LOL!!!

Either way, I love some Gwen. She's my celebrity doppelgänger (so I am a often told) :-)

Tru Leigh said...

Maybe the baby's not his. Hmmm?

dee said...

@dontrain, what are sea-bands please?

auntliddy said...

Well she seems to enjoy her children and takes good care of them, so why not? Congrats!

Seven of Eleven said...

We need a your turn about star doppelgangers.

@dee, sea bands are wrist bands with a pressure point in them that help fight nausea.

Meh. Lots of women have kids naturally after 40. Always have. In 1890 My great-great-grandmother had a healthy baby when she was 48. My own grandmother had one at 40.

di butler said...

Ugh, I'd hate to be preggers after 40,shit is bananas, but lots of folks like it, so congrats!

jetfuelgenius said...

I wonder if the reason the No Doubt tour was canceled early this year was because she was pregnant, then had a miscarriage...I never bought the "oh we're inspired and suddenly going to record the next record now!" excuse...if this is true I'm really glad for her...I know many friends who got pregnant naturally after 40, so that is not impossible, in spite of what the fertility industry tells you.

I used to loathe her whole Betty Boop persona, but over the years I have come to really respect how she's evolved, how she handled the guys resenting her starpower (and oh boy did they ever...), what she has built, and how she has handled her incredible fame. To put her family ahead of her career in that dirty music business is really admirable.

This is plausible, the question is "by whom?"

babo said...

Do you know where comes the data about female fertility? The numbers date back from 1670 to 1830, no less.

"In other words, millions of women are being told when to get pregnant based on statistics from a time before electricity, antibiotics, or fertility treatment. Most people assume these numbers are based on large, well-conducted studies of modern women, but they are not. "

But when you make studies in this age and time, the results are more like: "Among women having sex during their fertile times, 78 percent of 35-to-40-year-olds got pregnant within a year, compared with 84 percent of 20-to-34-year-olds."

The full article is here: The Atlantic

PotPourri said...

that picture is awful. She looks like a 20 ft woman with a 6 ft tall man in front of her. That's her kid son.

lostathome said...

Maybe robin Thicke is the father??

witwritergirl said...

I'm 53. Last child is 12. Conceived naturally and a surprise :) happens everyday. Something about seeing her with her children makes me smile. If she is preggers I wish her the best.

AKM said...

@Burnt Crepes - I hear you. I'm pushing 40 and haven't even had a partner in almost five years (or a date in...six months?). Pretty much completely wasted my fertile 30s. I've given up, but YOU just never know. :-)

IIRC, the odds of being fertile after 40 are WAY increased if the woman has already had children. For those of us who have not, I believe it's more difficult. Someone correct me if I'm wrong or let me know if I'm right.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

@akm that doesn't really sound right to me. Perhaps the statistics show that because those women have already proven to be fertile, so it wouldn't be surprising if more of them are also fertile into their 40s. That said, I haven't researched it so I don't know the facts.

Cee Kay said...

I had my kids at 35 and 39. I would just die if I got pregnant again in my 40s. It's HARD to be an old mom, people!

@LittleMiss - Stevie and Lindsay would be my dream come true too. I read an interview where Stevie said that she finally knew it was over for good with him only after he and his wife had their first baby. I still believe they're the only ones for each other and refuse to consider that they're not. :)

Brenda L said...

It's not so much of a fertility problem after age 40, the problem is that the risk of genetic problems like Down's Syndrome skyrocket.

Krissie said...

She's already said she wants a girl. IMO she should adopt so she can make sure, but whatever. Hope she doesn't bleach the new baby's hair.

Lindsay said...

They are wristbands that push on a pressure point in your wrist. They are supposed to help with nausea, caused from motion sickness, or pregnancy. I am 10 weeks pregnant and wear mine 24/7. They don't stop the nausea altogether, but they help manage it.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Those wristbands are great! Something we learned while riding on a bumpy plane ride is you can use the corner of the seat's arm rest to hit that same pressure point. I had a set, my friend didn't, so I gave her one and made do.

The best part is they don't knock you out like other anti-nausea remedies.

Henriette said...

I too read the article in The Atlantic and was not surprised at all. People don't even question the crap they are given about fertility.

I'm pregnant, naturally, at 43, so it does happen. Don't have those wristbands though.

AKM said...

"It's not so much of a fertility problem after age 40, the problem is that the risk of genetic problems like Down's Syndrome skyrocket."

You're half-correct. There absolutely IS a fertility problem after age 40. (After age 35, even.) We're only born with so many eggs, and we lose them every month, of course, and the ones we're left with after a certain age tend to be fewer in number AND not as genetically healthy.

I can't find any articles that support my previous statement about women who have had children are the ones who have an easier time getting pregnant past that 40 window, but I'm positive that I read about it in all of the panicked research I did back when I still wanted kids. Has something to do with hormone levels, perhaps? I'll keep looking if anyone's really interested.
