Gwen Stefani prefers her lifestyle when living with her family in London as it is more laid back than Los Angeles
Gwen Stefani feels safe in London.
The No Doubt singer - who has two children, Kingston, four, and 20-month-old Zuma, with British husband Gavin Rossdale - splits her time between the English capital and Los Angeles and enjoys the lifestyle she has in the British city because it's more laid back.
She said: "I miss my family when I'm in England. And when I'm in Los Angeles, I miss the role I have when I'm in London. Usually I'm not working in London, so Gavin spoils me and I get to be really dependent.
"I don't drive when I'm there and I like that. It's a different lifestyle to be able to walk to the little village and get milk. I take Kingston to the gym with me, with no nanny or assistant and that would be very rare in Los Angeles - that I could actually go somewhere on my own. Things can get out of hand with the paparazzi, so I don't feel safe."
The 40-year-old blonde also admitted splitting time between both countries is started to effect little Kingston's accent.
She explained to Britain's InStyle magazine: "I can't do an English accent - I can't even pretend. But kids are like little sponges. Once in a while, Kingston will pick up a word, like, 'I'm going to have a bahhth.' And I'm like, 'Really? A bahhth?!' "
