Gwen Stefani Gavin Rossdale with their kids and friends

Gavin Rossdale Hates Diapers
The British rocker, who’s married to Gwen Stefani loves spending time with their sons Kingston, 4, and Zuma, 2. But there’s one part of parenting he’s always avoided: changing diapers. “We have good people around us,” the former Bush frontman told Details magazine. “If there’s no one there, I can do it, but otherwise I sort of slide away – I get very interested in my Blackberry at that point.”

And he thinks he’s got a good reason for doing that. “A friend once told me, ‘By the way, they never thank you for changing their diapers when they grow up, so don’t sweat it.’ I thought it was good advice,” he said in the interview.

But though Rossdale’s taken a back seat in the diapering department, he puts a lot of effort into making sure his and Gwen’s two adorable sons don’t get hassled by the paparazzi when they’re on a simple family outing. “I’ll want to take my kids to the beach, and there are six grown men chasing us,” he told Details, according to people.com. “I have to go up and say to them, ‘Can you not photograph my son running around in his underwear?’ The pictures show up, anyway.”

Even Kingston gets angry at the photographers, Rossdale said. “He’d went through a really angry phase. He’d scream at them, ‘Get away! Don’t take a picture of my mom!’” (People)

Julianne Moore with her kids

Julianne Moore Supports Gay Parents
She plays a lesbian mother in the critically acclaimed movie The Kids Are All Right, but Julianne Moore says that way before that, she supported the right of gay couples to raise children.

“It’s something I’ve believed in for a long time,” she told CNN. “There are so many gay families—two moms and two dads—and very normal, very idiosyncratic, really regular American families happening all over the place.”

In The Kids Are All Right, Jules (Moore) and Nic (Annette Bening) play a couple whose two children were conceived via artificial insemination. Moore told CNN that she teachers her own two kids, Caleb, 12; and Liv, 8, that gay and straight couples should be treated equally.

“In my life and in my children’s lives, gay families are just part of the fabric of their world. We know plenty of families with two moms and two dads, and they’re just the same as we are.” (digitalspy)
