There’s “No Doubt” about Her Talent
The California native was raised in a Roman Catholic household and has an elder brother named Eric, who was also a member of No Doubt. She also has two younger siblings, Jill and Todd Stefani. Gwen Stefani’s father was a marketing executive and her mother was an accountant-turned-homemaker who took care of her children. Stefani first rose to prominence as the co-founder and lead singer of No Doubt, which spurned dozens of hit singles like “Don’t Speak,” “Hey Baby,” and “Just a Girl,” that are widely played, even today. Stefani’s mass appeal helped her launch a solo career when No Doubt went on hiatus and, in 2004, she dropped her debut solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby.
Stefani’s distinctive vocals and catchy lyrics landed her hit singles “What You Waiting For?” “Rich Girl,” and “Hollaback Girl” on the Billboard Hot 100, launching her flourishing career as a solo artist. Since then, there has been no looking back for the platinum blonde beauty, who went on to release two more studio albums: The Sweet Escape (2006) and This is What the Truth Feels Like (2016). Gwen Stefani’s albums have sold over 30 million copies worldwide and she has been ranked as one of the most successful artists by Billboard, as well as one of the “100 Greatest Women in Music” by VH1. It’s no wonder then that Gwen Stefani’s net worth is a whopping $100.0 million!
