Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale welcomed their third son into the world on Friday. Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale has two big brothers--Kingston, who is 7, and Zuma, who is 5. The No Doubt lead singer and Bush frontman are hands on parents and are often spotted on outings with their boys.
It was back in 2012 when Stefani shared a bit of heartache, fearing she and Rossdale would never have a third child. She hinted at a traumatic experience at the time, which many took to mean she may have suffered a miscarriage.
"I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn't really work out," she said back then during an interview with Marie Claire, without going into specifics. "So. . . I feel good with what we've got. Everything works out how it should. You can't plan anything, right? You can try."
On February 8th a star-studded shower not only rained gifts on Gwen Stefani and her husband in honor of the impending birth, it also celebrated the upcoming arrival, for which the mom-to-be was clearly very excited.
Proud dad Gavin Rossdale tweeted word of their new son's name.

No one can ever say that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale didn't choose unique names for their three boys. They definitely followed that decades-old Hollywood trend of providing their children with most unusual monikers. At least none of them is called Apple.
It wasn't so long ago that Gwen Stefani thought she might have a baby girl, and would have to hand over the crown of exclusivity in her all male household. It seems she will get to hang on to it after all, and no doubt (no pun intended) will do so very happily. She shared the following Instagram photo when she learned several weeks back that was was in fact carrying a boy.
Congrats are certainly in order for Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale on the birth of their new baby boy, Apollo. He is likely in for a life of music, travel, and excitement in his male dominated but happy home.
