Pop star Gwen Stefani is looking forward to hitting the road for her forthcoming solo tour after struggling to perform last year (05) while she was pregnant. Stefani released her first solo album LOVE ANGEL MUSIC BABY last year and was shocked to discover she was expecting before setting out on her promotional tour. She explains, "If you're going to go on tour don't get pregnant. Not a good idea. But it was amazing. It was a really fun tour." The star insists that her fans helped her get power through her grueling concert dates and gave her the energy to keep on going. She adds, "I was sick and I actually toured until I was four and a half months (pregnant), so it was pretty extreme. "By the end I had these panels put into all my shorts. It was pretty amazing, but worth it!"
