Breaking the news to friends and family that you’re expecting is an exciting time for any mum. 

But when Gwen Stefani broke the news to husband Gavin Rossdale that she was expecting their third child, her approach wasn’t what you would expect.

Speaking to Howard Stern, Rossdale explained that the big reveal happened while he was away on tour with his band Bush.

“I got this email from Gwen and the title was in capitals, ‘LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO ME NOW!'”

According to the 48-year old rocker, his blood pressure went through the roof, and when he opened the email “it was the pregnancy stick.”

The couple, who have been married for almost 12 years, now have three sons Kingston, 8, Zuma, 6, and Apollo, 6-months. Rossdale is also father to 25-year old Daisy Lowe, from a previous relationship.

Speaking about the couple’s youngest son, Stern exclaimed “You had another kid. I was surprised. I thought you were done”

Laughing, Rossdale replied “Me too.”

He also revealed that he knows exactly when little Apollo was conceived, explaining “I wasn’t home that often, but I did go home for Father’s Day. And that gives Father’s Day a new meaning”

How did you tell your partner that you were expecting?

  • OH what a lovely family they have =)


  • Thanks for sharing this funny story.


  • yeah i would love to see more ways that people think of how they announce their pregnancy


  • What a clever way of spreading the news. My husband was there when I did the test for both of my pregnancies


  • that is so funny! it is good to see celebs with a sense of humor and being normal


  • I think that’s very clever, enjoyed the story.


  • nothing wrong with being different


  • Aww baby Apollo looks so darling. I’m quite a fan of Gwen, she’s lovely.


  • Such a gorgeous photo – thanks


  • Husband guessed my news, we had just given up trying for a second child when I fell pregnant!


  • I told him he” better sit down” & “do I have news for you!”


  • I liked this story- so cute


  • I did the test.. and made him go back into the bathroom to find out and tell me! I was so nervous.. so imagine the big surprise when he came out of the bathroom with tears in his eyes! A win win situation for all!


  • Wishing Gwen, Gavin and their family health and much happiness.


  • We tried for four years and unfortunately for hubby, when I finally found out I was interstate. So it was a very tearful phone call. Not ideal, but we were so excited by the news that it didn’t matter at that point in time.
