Gwen Stefani spent much of the year prepping for No Doubt's highly anticipated reunion album, which is due out in September. The band recorded the new effort close to home in Southern California, giving Gwen the opportunity to hang out with Gavin Rossdale and their kids, Kingston and Zuma, between trips to the recording studio. The family also briefly spent some time in London while Gavin toured Europe with his band Bush. Gwen and her boys even had a playdate with another famous family during their stay in England, inviting Angelina Jolie over with Knox, Vivienne, Shiloh, and Zahara for a playdate.
On the fashion front, Gwen expanded into kidswear with her Harajuku Mini line for Target and enlisted Zuma and Kingston to model the gear at a fashion show celebrating the launch in November.
