Gwen Stefani struggled to balance work, family

London: Singer Gwen Stefani reveals she struggled to maintain a balance between work and family when her band No Doubt was re-formed in 2008.

"We were only able to get together three days a week and, because I had the kids, there was only a limited amount of time," quoted Stefani as saying.

The 42-year-old singer has sons Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4, with husband Gavin Rossdale.

But she admits the struggle helped in the success of the record too.

"I was exhausted by the time I got there, so it was a struggle trying to weigh and balance everything out with the kids. But it was that fight that made the record so great," she added.
