Gwen Stefani's kids not excited about her job

Gwen Stefani's kids don't care about her career.

The 47-year-old singer, designer, and 'Voice' coach may seemingly lead a glamorous life, but Kingston, 11, Zuma, nine, and three-year-old Apollo her kids with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale aren't impressed by her work and never want to be involved.

Speaking to reporters at a preview for her L.A.M.B. & gx Eyewear collection, she said: "When you're a mom, they don't want to know anything about what you do. It's all about them, and that's their job.

"I almost had them come with me today because it's their last week before school and stuff.

"They would have hated it here. They don't want to be part of anything. They just want to be the kids, and you be the mom."

However, Gwen who is in a relationship with country singer Blake Shelton admitted that the boys made an exception when it came to her small role in the Trolls movie, though she's baffled as to why they were so impressed.

She said: "When I was in the 'Trolls' [movie], for some reason that was a big deal.

"They still talk about it. They'll be like, 'Mom! When you did Trolls, did you...?' I'm barely in it. I have like one line or something. They get pretty excited about that, but this [event] they wouldn't."

Robin Thicke, Paula in a better place

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are in a "better" place now.

The former couple recently worked out their custody dispute over their seven-year-old son, Julian, and, after previously having an acrimonious relationship which even saw the Baggage Claim actress obtain a restraining order against her ex-husband earlier this year, they are now working to get along for the sake of the youngster.

A source told People magazine: "Robin and Paula had lots of drama and disagreements, but everyone is doing better now.

"They realised they needed to figure out ways to get along, so things would be easier for their son.

"The drama was very difficult and unfair to Julian. Lately, things are much better. They all seem happier."

And things couldn't be going better for the Blurred Lines singer as the 40-year-old star recently revealed his girlfriend, April Love Geary, 22, is pregnant.

The source said: "April is very mature for her age. She will be a great mom. Robin is excited to become a dad again. He thinks Julian is the best."

Under the terms of the new agreement, Robin will have custody of his son Monday through to Wednesday, while Paula, 41, has him Wednesday through to Friday, with the former couple alternating who takes care of the little boy over the weekends and having him for a week at a time during holidays.

The pair who were married from 2005 until their divorce a decade later in 2015 have also agreed to share the cost of expenses, including Julian's private school tuition.
