When Gwen Stefani yelled out to an adoring audience in Sunrise, Florida last week "I want you to do this (yell) so loud the baby hears you," the press rumor that she was pregnant ceased to be a rumor. Her first solo tour came to a close with the news of a baby on the way and obvious signs that she was suffering from exhaustion and distracted by the new direction of her life. For now, any plans for an additional solo album next year have been scrapped. She told the Los Angeles Times "I do know that I can't do anything unless it's real and I feel it. I have to be inspired. And right now, I feel completely depleted of creative inspiration."
For now, she can sit back and enjoy a Grammy Award nomination for Album of the Year and plan for a new addition to her family along with husband Gavin Rossdale.
