Gwen Stefani


Gwen Stefani has turned the big 4-0 – and celebrated this weekend with a birthday bash at the exclusive Italian restaurant Cecconi’s in Hollywood.

The singer turned 40 on 3 October, and was joined by her hubby Gavin Rossdale, their two children – Kingston, 3, and Zuma, 13 months – and an intimate group of friends, including Kate Beckinsale and her husband Len Wiseman.

The group enjoyed pasta and Champage as they celebrated in the restaurant’s private Butterfly Room, which features a $1 million heart-shaped Damien Hirst painting.

A restaurant source told People: ‘The Butterfly Room was specially decorated for Gwen's celebration with happy birthday balloons and roses.

Gwen looked amazing and so much younger than 40. She was in a great mood and seemed very excited to celebrate her birthday with her husband, children and friends.’

The source added: ‘Gwen and Kate seem very close and the girls shared a long chat and many laughs. Gavin and a nanny took care of the boys so Gwen could just relax and enjoy her celebration.’
