Gwen Stefani gives birth to Kingston James McGregor Rossdale

May 30th, 2006 // 95 Comments

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale gave birth to their first child together last Friday at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, naming him Kingston James McGregor Rossdale. Her rep said over the weekend: “Gwen’s doing great! She looks amazing and she’s doing real good.”

After other celebrities have gone with Zolten, Bluebell Madonna, and Shiloh, Kingston James McGregor Rossdale actually sounds like a really solid name. Although it’s a shame they didn’t keep up the tradition of celebrity baby naming and call him something like Hagar the Horrible.

    That was scary, for a moment I thought it said “Klingon”.

  2. Geno

    James would have been so much better, but it could have been a lot worse. I think this kid actually has a chance to be semi-normal and a potential star…

  3. prettierthanmeganharris

    These two are pretty good looking and I bet they break the rule and have a good looking kid.
    Feed Me, that would have been so funny!

    So Kingston must have weighed it at, what, about 32 lbs. right? For such a skinny little dude like Gwen Stefani to gain that much weight while pregnant, it must be the case.
    So, like Wolfgang Van Halen, whose nickname is “Wolf”, we know what Gwen and Gav will be calling their son, right? “King”. Elvis, eat your heart out!

  5. Is this somehow in honor of the Kingston Trio or something?

  6. CoJo

    Tracie – the only reason why the baby would of weighed 32 lbs is because she was pregnant for about a year. Anyone else notice how long that seemed???

  7. Morticia

    Kingston. Pfftt. Nothing like naming your baby after a computer memory upgrade company.

  8. BarbadoSlim

    How many fucking names does the little shithead need anyway. Jesus fucking Christ just give him one name and end it.

  9. SHE looks like Haggar the Horrible!

  10. Tetsuo

    Am I the only one who wishes she’d been choked to death, either with the umbilical cord or by the baby itself, immediately after the birth so we’d never be assaulted again by her Joker smile, retarded fashion sense, titless non-hotness, and fucking terrible music?

  11. tits_on_snack

    “Kingston” is supposed to be a tribute to some place back in Gavin’s homeland… But there’s like a Kingston in every country. There’s one about half-hour’s drive from me right now. There’s Kingston, Nova Scotia; Kingston Ontario, Kingston Georgia, Kingston Montanna, Kingston Missouri, Kingston Montanna, Kingston New York, Kingston Pennsylvania, Kingston Rhode Island, Kingston Washinton, Kingston, Jamaica, Kingston New Zealand…
    It’s not a bad name, but, I’m just sayin’ is all…

  12. BarbadoSlim

    I used to like this girl a lot when No Doubt first came out.

    Then when she started acting like some kind of chola …..not so much.

  13. spatz

    b. spears should take note. this is how one is supposed to look and carry themselves when they are with child. i think these photos were taken the day she gave birth.

  14. spatz

    im pretty sure she named it after kingston, jamaica. and if anything, the kid can call himself James if he wants to be normal. nice name.

  15. notalotjellytot

    another celebrity baby. yawn. do any of them actually DO anything anymore besides procreate and call their children ridiculous names. Imagine naming your child after the most drug ridden town in Jamaica. And then trying to right it wih James. Actually, forget it…this is so boring I might cry.

  16. BarbadoSlim

    Let me see, I’m going to name my future spolied little brat using the Stefani method:

    Newark John Spalding McDonalds.


  17. BrianMolko

    There are such extremes with female celebrities, they either ruin their body by having children or starve themselves to make it perfect. It’s quite pathetic her life has got to the point when she had nothing to do but start having children.

  18. boobiezmagee

    I find people with two middle names pretentious, but that’s just me.

    And #17 Maybe she wanted to have a child at the point she did. It doesnt make her pathetic.

  19. fukusan

    If it’s a reference to Kingston Jamaica, it’s because Gwen has always been a wigger, from saying that her garbage music is ska to doing duets with prominent dancehall singers.

    She also seems to have pulled a madge buy usurping traditionally English names to try to and make the world forget she is in fact a dyed blonde Italian. I mean McGregor? WTF is that about.

  20. PapaHotNuts

    I hope he ain’t no holla back baby.

  21. Damn, i was really looking forward to another religious based baby name. Maybe this kid will be lucky enough not to get teased too much in school. Let’s hope Britney comes up with a brilliant name for her next sprog:

  22. I still think Kingston is a little odd, only because you know his nickname will end up being King, and he will never live up to it.

  23. McGregor? As is Ewan McGregor? As in Ewan McGregor might be the real father?

  24. spatz

    19 not to defend any celebrities, but i believe mcgregor is her husbands middle name.
    i love how deep the hatred for nodoubt runs. its hilarious that people are still referring to arguments i heard about 10 years ago when they first came out. classic.

  25. BarbadoSlim

    @19 yeah, is she from the foockin’ scotish highlands now? Is she clan McGregor?

    wigga please.

  26. DrDanny

    BarbadoSlim (#12): I must know, what is “chola?” Google tells me it’s some sort of ancient dynastic family name. Please: I wannt be a cool kid too!

    I’m also a fan of the pre-makeup-and-fashion-whore Gwen Stefani. But then I think Paris Hilton is hot, so go figure.

  27. Toonlite

    Forget the name thing BUT…I just don’t get it…..why do stars indcing labor wanting C-sections???? what happened with screaming and kicking a baby out and punching the guy that impregnated you and pass out the watermelon sized fetus through a barely stetchy openning?…oh yea….birthing is a beautiful thing….why complicate it with pain and reality!

  28. BarbadoSlim

    @26 I’ll give you the wikipedia answer:

    In the United States and Mexico, Cholo is a fairly offensive term implying a typically Mexican mestizo gangster.

    that pretty much sums it up. :)

  29. fukusan

    24 I’m sure it is her husbands middle name probably derrived from the last name of one of his maternal relatives. However, why diddn’t they go tit for tat and make one of the four names Italian to pay hommage to his mother or her mother etc. Name the kid Kingston James Giuseppe Rossdale. Jafaking and Slimying your way out of that fact you’re an Italian-American is disgracefull.

  30. tits_on_snack

    “It’s quite pathetic her life has got to the point when she had nothing to do but start having children.”

    Kay. I’m no fan of Gwen, or of people popping out kids left and right for that matter. But Gwen Stefani is thirty-seven years old this year.

    THIRTY SEVEN years old.

    She ain’t exactly a spring chicken, and she’s past the healthy age recommended for women to start having babies. Cripes, she’s almost 40, if she wants to have a baby while her uterus hasn’t dried up yet then let her.

  31. spatz

    29 i dont really know or care. actually, she isnt all that hardcore italian anyway. i think her dad is like a quarter italian. she’s probably just as irish or whatever the hell her mother is as she is italian. shes pretty much just a white american who grew up in california. just cause you have an italian sounding name doesnt make you fucking christopher coloumbus.

  32. Dr.Rokter

    #18 I find people who make assumptions about my character based on the number of names I have to be assholes, but that’s just me.

  33. spatz

    yeah, really i never knew having kids meant you are somehow pathetic. i guess that would make the whole world, including the woman who squeezed you out of her godforsaken vag pathetic too.

  34. Feed_Me_Chocolate


    Wow, where do you live that you haven’t heard of a chola? I’ll give you my description of a chola:

    Mexican girl who dresses like a gangsta, has penciled in eyebrows, wears black lipstick, has crunchy, over-moussed hair, usually with voluminous, teased bangs, employs the phrases, “Oh, I know, huh?”, “It’s so PEEEERTY”, “They don’t let choo go cruisin’ or nothin”, and gives shout-outs to her homegirls and her boyfriend Spooky who’s in prison, but who she loves so much and misses, on the Art Leboe’s Oldie Show.

  35. spatz

    34 you paint such a vivid picture. fucking brilliant!

  36. TaiTai

    Y’all! She can’t be Italian, she has blond hair! Duh! I bet you think Madonna is Italian too or something.

    For sure the kid is named for Jamaica mon. Between the two of them I am sure the parents have spent plenty of time pursuing the Jamaican national pastime.

  37. Linnea

    It’s only a matter of time before she trades this baby in for a Japanese one that can do a crazy contortionist dance or something. Because that would be like so “hip”.

    Ew. Gwen Stefani makes me want to kill the entire world. Like, I love chocolate chip cookies. But if I could let all the cookies in the world burn to death in exchange for her bloody demise…I would.

  38. Italian Stallion

    If she needs some more Italian in her, I’d be happy to help her out with that…….

  39. Dee

    First off she looks very pretty and put together, and though her belly got big the rest of her probably just swelled up from water retention (thats what happened to me). She will look like her regular self in a few weeks.

    What she looks bad because she combs her hair and covers her belly (unlike that trash whore Britney Spears??) I agree with the post that said Britney should take note-not everyone needs to look like a total slob.

  40. gammanormids

    Finally! But from all people in the world, the one who gave her child a normal name had to be was Gwen Stafani…

    #28: Cholo/Chola is a peruvian word in quechua language. Once meaning ‘pretty boy/girl’ now is used to insult those with peruvian native features.

  41. fukusan

    Listen, I’m not Italian or American but I do think that an Italian-American woman naming her first born son King James McGregor is a little silly.

  42. PapaHotNuts

    If it was a girl, they were going to name her “Queen Lily Sapphire Donut Reebok”. I’m not even kidding.

  43. TaiTai

    Hey Stallion. I bet that would get her to start naming her kids nice Italian names.

  44. BarbadoSlim

    The thing with hair color and skin tone and italians (and all other ethnic groups I guess) is it depends on the region. My mother was italian and she was blond so is my sister. Our ancestors came from northern italy. But we also have italian family with very dark hair and skin.

    Don’t even get me started on the puertorican part of the family, they go from blond blue eyed to straight up black.

    We are a varied and loud bunch.

  45. Fisher55

    Gavin Rossdale gave me a blowjob once in a Manchester nightclub…he asked me my name, and I lied and told him “Kingston”

  46. Feed_Me_Chocolate

    Don’t you even mess with Gavin. He is sofa king hot.

  47. 86

    Is it me, or did it seem like she was pregnant forever?

  48. spamnews

    So which is it?

    “”Gwen’s doing great! She looks amazing and she’s doing real good.”

    Great or real good?

    I think she’s about to die with all those assurances. RIP the dumbest choick in the world. Her’es a nice quoute from GS (Pink must’ve written Stupid Girls with her particularly in mind):

    “Tony called me and I was like, ‘Dude, I suck.’ And he was like, ‘Dude, come over.’ So I went to his house and a bunch of our friends there were playing these tracks that Tony was doing that were, like, stupid. I was like, “You did not do these.” And he’s like, ‘Yep, you wanna hear your tracks?’ And I was like, ‘Nuh-uh, you did not.’ So he
    pulls out this one and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that’s my song.” – Gwen Stefani on the artistic process.

  49. spatz

    oh my fucking gawd she is not italian. do not make me link to her biography. i’ll do it i swear.

    for the last time. she is JUST as italian as she is irish or whatever mixture her mom and dad are. plus the baby is WAY more british than the less than 1/4 italian blood gwen has. the damn kid is half british and barely italian.

    from everything about these people can be picked on your picking on her giving her kid a british name? the kids father is bri

  50. Italian Stallion

    @43 I don’t know about helping with names, unless she’s gonna name the kid, “Ouch”
