Gavin Rossdale Discusses ‘Dilemma’ Of Co-Parenting During Pandemic
Gavin Rossdale, the lead singer of the alternative rock band Bush has been facing a tricky situation when it comes to parenting the three kids that he shares with his ex-wife, Gwen Stefani.
The couple, who were together for 12 years before calling it quits in 2016, are parents to three boys – Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6, who have been shuffling between Rossdale’s home and Stefani’s current home in Oklahoma, where her boyfriend and country crooner Blake Shelton owns a 10,000-acre ranch.
Under the present circumstances, however, the back-and-forth has been compromised; in an interview with SiriusXM‘s Trunk Nation last Friday, Rossdale shared that he spent the first two weeks of quarantine with his kids, but that it has now been nearly two weeks since he has seen them.
“I know who’s around me — no one is. And, I know who’s bringing me the coronavirus — no one is,” the 54-year-old explained. “But, you send your kids out to someone else and they come back to you, and now you’re prone to whoever they’re with.”
He added that while he was initially excited to get a lot of alone time in which to practice guitar, his preferences quickly changed; “But now, I’m like, ‘I kind of prefer it when they’re around, actually,'” he said.
Rossdale continues to be in touch with his children through FaceTime; “I find myself in my kids’ pockets a lot,” he joked.
