7. They Were Not Planning A Third Baby
Many who thought that the pair were going strong and were very in love pointed to the fact that at 44 and 48 years old they expanded their family once more, welcoming their son Apollo in February 2014. It turns out however that Apollo was a bit of a surprise, with Gwen stating in an interview she told her oldest son Kingston, “We’re not having any more. This is our family,” when he asked her if she was having another baby before she was pregnant with Apollo. The way in which she told Gavin and his reaction also shed light on possible tension of a third pregnancy. Gavin recalled, “I got this email on the road, from Gwen, and the title was in capitals, ‘LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO ME NOW.’ I was like, ‘What is this?’ My blood pressure went through the roof. And I opened the e-mail, and it was the pregnancy stick.” Gavin was also able to pinpoint the exact night Apollo was conceived. “I wasn’t home that often, but I did go home for Father’s day,” he said. Her “look what you did” received by a panicked Gavin and the fact he knows exactly when they did the deed due to his absence paints the picture of a much more strained family relationship than most perceived.
