Gwen Stefani looked back at the tough days of motherhood when she had to nurse her eldest son, Kingston Rossdale, on tour.
Now, her son is 17 years old and has a girlfriend.
He shared a photo of him and his girlfriend, revealing they were celebrating six years together, and the picture brought up many mixed emotions among fans.
Gwen Stefani has built a successful career as a singer and is known and loved as one of the coaches on “The Voice.” She experienced a surreal moment when she watched her eldest son, Kingston Rossdale, perform for the first time at her step-father’s bar and music venue, Ole Red, in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
The mother of three revealed that her son had always been writing songs from a young age. Although she admitted that she could be seen as biased, she still raved about how great of a songwriter her son was.
Eventually, Black Shelton suggested that he take his talent to the crowd because taking a song from paper and performing it was a totally different experience.
Looking at her son discovering his talent and love for music was incredibly emotional for Stefani because she remembered some of the hardships she endured in her early motherhood stages. Stefani was focused on building a successful music career in her younger days. Before going solo, she was the lead singer for the rock band No Doubt.
The singer was honest about how difficult those days were. She recalled going on a world tour with Rossdale when he was nine months old and having to nurse him before going on stage.
At the time, Stefani worried she would miss the big moments with her family. “That’s when things got really hard for me emotionally. That time is so precious, and you don’t want to miss anything,” she confessed. However, the 53-year-old now enjoys the quieter days of her life, gardening with her husband, and has successfully raised her three children, all boys.
Even now that her sons are in their teenage years, Stefani wishes to be more present. “When my kids were teenagers, I really wanted to make sure that I was home for them — and here we are,” she said. Although she’s having a less spotlight-filled Hollywood life, she still struggles to balance a career and motherhood.
Gwen Stefani’s Eldest Son and His Girlfriend
Stefani’s son is now 17 years old and recently revealed that he had been dating his girlfriend for six years. Rossdale shared a photo on Instagram celebrating what seemed like an anniversary with his girlfriend.
However, many commenters were concerned about how long they had been together for their age. Internet users were astonished that Rossdale could have started dating his girlfriend when he was only eleven. “You are still a kid. It’s not real at that stage,” remarked a commenter.
While others were worried about the 17-year-old’s long-term relationship, some people were happy for Kingston. “Young love,” said one commenter, and another added, “Wow, happy anniversary.”
Fans who thought the two were adorable wished them all the best. Another said it was no surprise that Kingston Rossdale had a beautiful girlfriend because his first mother was his first love.
