Gwen Stefani Says Kingston's Prayers Led to Her Pregnancy
"I swear to you, he prayed every single night, and four weeks later, I was pregnant," she explained.
Kingston Rossdale didn’t need a show to put his talent to the test: His voice was heard loud and clear.
“[Kingston] asked me, ‘Mom, are you going to have a baby? I want you to have a baby,’ ” The Voice judge recalls.
“I was like, ‘It’s over. We’re not having any more. This is our family.’ ”
But Kingston used the power of prayer to bring his parents’ newest blessing — Apollo Bowie Flynn, now 6 months — into the world.
“Kingston … has a direct link to God, basically,” Stefani, 44, said. “[He started to pray,] ‘Dear God, please let my mom have a baby. Please, God! Please let my mom have a baby.'”
Ask and you shall receive: Before long Stefani and Rossdale discovered another baby was on the way. “I swear to you, he prayed every single night, and four weeks later, I was pregnant,” she explained.
“I brought out a cake after we found out it was really going to happen and it said, ‘We’re having a baby!’ I made him read it … and he goes, ‘Ahh! I prayed for that!'”
Now that Kingston has witnessed the power of prayer, Stefani jokes there’s no stopping him! “He prays for everything. He’s like, ‘Please, God! Please let me have another cupcake. He really believes,” she says.
