Gwen Stefani Reveals ‘Settle Down’ Inspiration!

Gwen Stefani is back with No Doubt, and she’s been talking to us about balancing her work and family life exclusively in the new issue of LOOK!

While admitting that being a working mum is hard, Gwen says it’s her dream life to have both time with her kids, and time rocking out on stage: “It’s really hard. I’m not going to lie. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, by far. But I work a lot at the house. It’s not easy, but I love it. I’m living my dream… I can’t imagine things any other way. I feel blessed with what I have with these two guys, they’re amazing. And I’m lucky to have such a great husband. “

Gwen revealed that the band’s song Settle Down is about those times in her marriage to Gavin Rossdale that haven’t been so easy:

“[It’s] actually about when you’re in trouble and trying to hide it inside, but you’re not fine. The entire time you’re married, you’re not always happy and in love. I just tried to pick up on what was happening there and then to write the songs.”
