Baby boy for singer Gwen Stefani
Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani
Musicians Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani married in 2002
US singer Gwen Stefani has given birth to her first child with husband Gavin Rossdale at a Los Angeles hospital.

Son Kingston James McGregor Rossdale was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday, Stefani's spokesman Dave Tomberlin said.

"Both mother and child are doing well," he added. The boy weighed seven and a half pounds.

No Doubt singer Stefani, 36, married 38-year-old Rossdale - the London-born singer with the band Bush - in 2002.

Rossdale already has a 16-year-old daughter with Pearl Lowe, former frontwoman of cult 1990s band Powder.

Stefani first hit mainstream success in 1995 with the release of No Doubt's single Don't Speak, but has spent recent years working on her own projects, with solo album Love Angel Music Baby released in 2004.

Despite Bush's origins in west London, Rossdale's band struggled to follow their huge success in the US with recognition in their home country. The band's career has been put on hold, and Rossdale is currently fronting another group, Institute.
