Singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani said in
a recent interview that she would be okay if one of her two sons with
ex-husband Gavin Rossdale came out as gay.
“I would be blessed with a gay son –
you know that I would feel blessed about that,” she told
LGBT weekly PrideSource.
“I just want my boys to be happy and
healthy, and I just ask God to guide me every day to be a good mother
because it is not an easy job.”
“I’ve been lucky enough to have
such a blessed life. I’ve been able to travel the world and meet so
many different kinds of people. And it doesn’t really matter if
you’re gay, straight, whatever. There are good and bad people, and
I would be happy. I just want my kids to be happy, and whatever
journey God gives them is their journey.”
The 46-year-old co-founder and lead
vocalist of No Doubt added that being gay “seems so normal” to
“I always ask my gay friends, 'OK, so
what was it like when you were a little boy?' Because I do know that
it’s gotta be difficult to be the alternative, to not be the
mainstream, or to be different, if you want to call it that. I feel
like it’s less and less (like that) these days, and it’s hard for
me to understand because it doesn’t seem different or weird or
anything anymore because it just seems so normal to me,” she said.
