While Gwen Stefani has been doing a good job of keeping mum about the flurry of rumors that she is pregnant, her friends have clearly missed the briefing. For rapper Eve appeared to give confirmation that the 43 year-old is expecting her third child. During an interview with Live Nation this week she declared categorically: 'She's preggers.'
She made the slip-up when asked whether Gwen - who she collaborated with on Let Me Blow Your Mind - would be appearing with her at an upcoming New York performance. Eve replied without hesitation: 'Well she's preggers....she's chilling.' Her remarks are the closest confirmation yet that the mother of two is expecting her third with husband Gavin Rossdale.
The couple, who have been married for 11 years, already have two sons - Kingston. seven, and five year-old Zuma. But she has made no secret of the fact she would like a larger family. In January this year in an interview with Vogue she hinted that she had tried to conceive another baby but that she had not been successful.
She said: 'I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn't really work out, So ... I feel good with what we've got. 'Everything works out how it should. You can't plan anything, right? You can try.'
She added. 'It's super fun being a mom, but it's not what you think it's going to be. At first, your life is totally the same. And as they grow older, it really does start to change your life. Like, "Oh, my God, they have school, they have to get through first grade, they have to learn to read. It starts getting so serious, and you're like, 'Aaaaaaah!'
The latest rumors began circulating in August when she was seen on holiday in the south of France. She appeared to be hiding her stomach which is normally toned to perfection. In one picture there was the slightest hint of what could be the beginning of a bump.
So far there has been no official word from the family.
