Gavin Rossdale on Gwen, Kids, and his Tour

Gwen Stefani and her hubby Gavin Rossdale have been a little MIA since the birth of their second son, Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale. While Gwen has been busy being a mom, Gavin is gearing up to go on tour.

In a new interview with Gavin talks about their two boys, how he keeps the romance alive with Gwen, and leaving for his big tour. Here are some highlights from the interview...

Gavin on what music Kingston listens to: “He likes anything with a good beat. He’s big into drums. He likes my record. He likes Gwen’s record. He plays some Pharrell and Snoop. Anything that’s good for head-bobbing. He’s a good head-bobber.”

Gavin on how he keeps the romance alive with Gwen despite having two young boys: “We just try and spend time together. When we’re not touring it’s a lot easier. Most music happens after five o’clock, so we find time to spend together, to do stuff together.”

Gavin on which pre-school he'll send Kingston to:

"I don’t feel that much pressure about it yet. I want to home-school him. I feel so bad for him, because school is just so relentless. When you’re two or three, the idea that you have twenty years of being told you have to get up and go to school… I probably went to the wrong school, because I used to hate getting up and going.”

Gavin on his kids names:

Well Kingston is named for Kingston, Jamaica, not Kingston Ferry. So it's really not that traditional. At least I don't think there are a lot of kids named for Kingston, Jamaica. But those were just the names that sort of came up and I thought to agree with them.

Gavin on whether he has any desire for a baby girl:

“Yeah. I don’t know. I just have the desire to be nice to everyone.”

Gavin on leaving for tour:

"Yeah, but I'm enjoying the time I get to spend with them now, here and in London [Rossdale and Stefani split their time between London and L.A.]. Wherever Gwen and I go, we try to take them with us so we don't have to be away from them too long."
