Gwen Stefani Jokes That Her Son’s Prayers Made Her Get Pregnant (VIDEO)

The singer revealed that Kingston asked God for another baby brother or sister – and his prayers were answered

During an appearance on US chat show Late Night with Seth Meyers mum-of-three Gwen Stefani, 44, spoke about her most recent pregnancy, admitting that her oldest son Kingston, eight, told her he wanted her to get pregnant.

‘[Kingston] asked me, ‘”Mom, are you going to have a baby? I want you to have a baby”,’ Gwen told Seth.

The singer then said she told him that she wasn’t going to have any more children – that Kingston and Zuma, six, were all she needed.

‘I was like, “It’s over. We’re not having any more. This is our family,’” she recalled.

But Kingston used the power of prayer to help his dreams of another sibling come true. ‘Kingston has a direct link to God, basically,’ Gwen joked. ‘[He started to pray,] “Dear God, please let my mom have a baby. Please, God. Please let my mom have a baby.’

And his prayers weren’t for nothing – just four weeks later Gwen discovered she was expecting another baby, her son Apollo Bowie Flynn who’s now six months old.
