Gwen Stefani on pregnancy, baby weight, and that playdate with the Jolie-Pitts
Gwen Stefani, 37, appears on the cover of British Elle this month. She discusses her pregnancy, working out, how Kingston, 8 months, is the most romantic thing she and Gavin have done, and that July playdate with the Jolie-Pitts. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On she and Gavin having a child: "Having Kingston has been the most romantic thing to have happened to us."
On being pregnant and famous: "It was weird being pregnant in a fishbowl situation. Especially ondays when you feel really fat and disgusting and not cute. Pregnancywas challenging in a way I didn’t expect. I was on tour and I was sosick. It was like PMS times a million."
TV show choices while pregnant:"I enjoy a great [plastic] surgery TV show as much as anyone — I watched a lot ofthose shows while I was pregnant! But it’s pretty bizarre that that’swhere we’re at — that you can place an order for how you’re going tolook. People take it pretty lightly, but it’s a big deal. I’ve thoughtit over but I’m not at that stage yet."
A Kingston Rossdale and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt wedding in the future?:"Yeah! They were like two little blobs when they met. [They were 6 weeks old.] Maybe they’ll get married when they grow up? That’d be cute!"

On working out while pregnant: "I worked out with my trainer throughout my whole pregnancy until abouttwo weeks before. I cried during my last session. I was like, ‘I can’tbreathe, I can’t do this anymore. What am I doing?’ It was crazy. Allmy life I had to work hard to stay in shape. I’ve always struggled withit. I was a little chubby when I was younger, and I didn’t want to be thatperson forever. I became a swimmer at school — but only because Iwanted to be skinner! I’m extremely vain. I like wearing cute clothes."
On working out postpartum: "There aren’t any tricks, it’s simple math: you put this much food in,you burn that much working out. I gave myself three months — but if Ididn’t have an album coming out, there’s no way I would have gottenback into shape in that time. I worked out with my trainer five days aweek, with weekends off. I would really recommend doing weights. I’mnot into yoga and Pilates — they don’t work for me and I don’t havethe patience. I’m more like a man, I like going to the gym and liftingweights or doing a little boxing."
