Gwen Stefani "really, really" wanted a third child
The No Doubt singer - who has sons Kingston, six and four-year-old Zuma with husband Gavin Rossdale - reveals she was desperate to expand her family in 2010 but "it didn`t work out".
She said: "I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. It didn`t really work out. So I feel good with what we`ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can`t plan everything, right? You can try."
Despite her disappointment, Gwen is delighted with how well her children get along, despite constant fighting.
She told US Marie Claire magazine: "From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never knew they would be so physical.
"They`re just starting to play real well together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other - especially the little one, he really loves his big brother."
However, Gwen`s life is not all so easy and she admits her marriage has been hard work.
She said: "My biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it`s hard, everyone knows it`s hard. Marriage is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together."
