Gwen Stefani will sacrifice career for kids

Gwen Stefani wants to "enjoy" her children while they are young.

The 42-year-old star - who has two sons, Kingston, five, and Zuma, three, with husband Gavin Rossdale - doesn't want to regret missing her kids grow up because she focused too much on her career.



She said: "I think what I'd like to do is enjoy these boys while they're young - so I don't regret I was working too much when they're big and don't want to cuddle me anymore."



As a parent Gwen - who lives with her family in London - likes to encourage her children to be creative, but admits they sometimes "horrify" her with their fashion choices.



The 'Wind It Up' singer - who has her own fashion line L.A.M.B. - said: "I like them to be creative and have fun. Sometimes they'll get dressed and it's horrifying. But they often come out in outfits that are awesome."



Although Gwen - who is also the lead singer of band No Doubt - is famed for her outrageous on stage outfits and fashion creations, she isn't prepared to be as experimental with her trademark blonde hair.



In an interview with the new issue of InStyle magazine, she revealed: "You know, I was a redhead once. Right after we came home from the first No Doubt tour I felt like I might get recognised, so I coloured my red hair, and I hated it."



And hair is not the only thing that Gwen likes to stay the same - her lipstick also tends to be of one shade.



She said: "When I was 17, my grandmother got me a gift pack with all these different coloured lipsticks, and one of them was burgundy.



"I tried it on and looked in the rear-view mirror and said, 'That looks good.' I've worn it ever since."
