Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale are expecting their third boy. The No Doubt singer shared her news on Instagram Friday. She was ready to hand over being queen of the household if she was in fact carrying a baby girl, but that simply wasn't to be. She shared a photo with her fans and a caption that read, "I was ready to hand over the crown, but I guess I am still queen of the house. #itsaboy #surroundedbyboys"

It's uncertain if this third baby boy will be the last try for Rossdale and Stefani or if perhaps they will try once again, in hopes of adding a little girl to their growing family. The couple has been married for 11 years. Their two sons, Kingston and Zuma, are seven and five years old, respectively. Gwen Stefani is 44 years old and Gavin Rossdale is 48, so it would certainly seem their baby making days wouldn't continue too many more years into the future.

Gwen Stefani admitted recently that juggling a career and a family isn't always easy. In addition to her band, she is also a fashion designer. She finds that the older her boys get, the harder it is to keep up with all of the requirements of parenting.

“Like, Oh, my God, they have school, they have to get through first grade, they have to learn to read. It starts getting so serious, and you’re like, Aaaaaaah!” she says.

Given the kind of hands on parents that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are (they are frequently spotted with both boys in tow, headed to a park or out for an afternoon walk) they will do just fine--even with adding a third child to the mix. It will certainly be interesting to see what they name this newest member of their family, since Kingston and Zuma have very unique names.
