It can be incredibly scary for a child to come out to his or her parents, especially if those parents have unfavorable opinions of homosexuality.
Gwen Stefani's sons, fortunately, will never have that problem.
In a recent interview with LGBT newspaper Pride Source, the mother of three said,
I would be blessed [to have] a gay son. You know that I would feel blessed about that. I just want my boys to be happy and healthy, and I just ask god to guide me every day to be a good mother because it is not an easy job.
The 46-year-old, who shares sons Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2 with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, adds,
…[I]t doesn't really matter if you're gay, straight, whatever. There are good and bad people, and I would be happy [if my sons were gay]. I just want my kids to be happy, and whatever journey god gives them is their journey. I just need to be the most supportive mom that I can be and that's what I'm gonna be.
Amen to that, Gwen.
