Gwen Stefani Discusses the 'Struggle' Leading to Her Divorce

Gwen Stefani looks radiant on the cover of InStyle‘s December 2015 issue, on newsstands November 13.

Here is what the 46-year-old singer and The Voice coach had to share with the mag:

On getting pregnant with her third son Apollo: “Getting pregnant, which wasn’t planned and was such a miracle, has put me in a whole new spiritual place. I was trying at the time to do more music with No Doubt. Then I got pregnant, and I was like, OK, well what am I gonna do now? I need to make some changes. There’s only so much energy.”

On the years leading up to her divorce: “I didn’t tour at all. But I did record the No Doubt album, which was super hard. I was torn the whole time. Every day I would take the kids to school, drive to Santa Monica, work on the album, and then I’d think, Oh my god, if I don’t leave by 2:30, I’m not gonna get home in time for dinner. And Gavin being on tour… I’m not gonna say there weren’t some incredible moments making that album. But it was a lot of knocking my head against the wall. A lot of struggle.”

On being a mother: “In the beginning, I didn’t want to think of myself as a mother. I was like, Wait a minute! Ain’t no hollaback girl is who I am! I had to learn quickly to accept it. Being a mother and having a career-those are just different roles you play. You’re still the same person you were before, but now you’re more because you’re a mother too, with a lot to do.”

FYI: Gwen is wearing a Carolina Herrera top and skirt with a Bulgari necklace worn as a wrap bracelet.
