Gwen Stefani Shows Off Toned Tummy On Cover Of Marie Claire

Anyone with a propensity to turn a bit green-eyed monster might want to look away now...

Gwen Stefani has been showing off those famously toned abs on the October 2012 cover of Marie Claire - and she's looking better than ever.


Dressed in a crop top, slouchy pants, and a cool army-style jacket, the description of Gwen on the front cover as "Blonde Badass" is pretty spot on.

Inside, the glammed-up army theme continues as the singer rocks dog tags and a khaki vest and pants combo, all topped off with a snakeskin jacket.


Check out some of the highlights from the interview here:

On rearing two high-energy boys just a few years apart in age: "From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never knew they would be so physical. They're just starting to play real well together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other - especially the little one, he really loves his older brother."

On what her 10-year anniversary with Gavin Rossdale represents: "A biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it's hard, everyone knows it's hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together."

On her relationship with husband Gavin Rossdale: "[Our relationship] is better than it's ever been. Like, we're learning about each other all the time. He's an amazing dad, he works so hard - I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me!" Above all, she adds: "He balances me out. And he - he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does."

On having a third child: "I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn't really work out. So...I feel good with what we've got. Everything works out how it should. You can't plan anything, right? You can try."
