No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani is the October 2012 covergirl for Marie Claire, in which she divulges that she and rocker husband Gavin Rossdale had recently been trying for child number three.
“I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out,” she told the magazine. “So … I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”

On rearing two high-energy boys: “From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never knew they would be so physical. They’re just starting to play real well together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other – especially the little one, he really loves his older brother.”
HOW TO GET GWEN’S ABS.
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.” She continues: “[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.”
On her relationship with husband Gavin Rossdale: “[Our relationship] is better than it’s ever been. Like, we’re learning about each other all the time. He’s an amazing dad, he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me!” Above all, she adds, “He balances me out. And he – he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does.”
