Gavin Rossdale’s former nanny/mistress Mindy Mann is knocked up


Soon after Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani announced their split, there were stories about Gavin’s “alleged” affair with their nanny, Mindy Mann. Sources were spilling all to the tabloids last fall, claiming that Gavin and Mindy had been engaged in a hot & heavy affair for the better part of three years, and that Gwen finally learned the truth in spring 2015. Mindy apparently Single White Female’d Gwen pretty hard, copying her hair, makeup and style to a creepy degree. Oh, and as of November/December, there were widespread reports that Gavin was still seeing Mindy in some capacity. Look at that timeline. Cough. Yeah, Mindy Mann is pregnant.

A baby for the babysitter! Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s former nanny Mindy Mann, who had a relationship with the Bush rocker while he was still married, is pregnant with her first child, Us Weekly can confirm. On Thursday, March 3, Mindy’s sister, Nicole Jennifer Mann, took to Instagram not only to make the pregnancy announcement, but also to reveal that the former employee of Stefani, 46, and Rossdale, 50, is expecting a little boy.

“#auntynoodle #nephew,” Nicole Jennifer wrote alongside a snapshot of Mindy cradling her baby bump while holding on to a giraffe-shaped balloon that reads, “It’s a boy!”

In another ‘gram, Nicole Jennifer posted a pic of friends leaning in to kiss Mindy’s growing belly. Later on Facebook, she uploaded the same photo and shared even more enthusiasm: “I’m excited to announce I’m going to be an aunty to another beautiful baby!” Tagged in the posts is Mindy’s boyfriend, Spencer Gutcheon — presumably the father of the child.

As insiders exclusively told Us Weekly in November 2015, Rossdale’s three-year relationship with Mindy is what ultimately caused Stefani to leave him after 13 years of marriage. Sources say that in February 2015, Stefani uncovered Rossdale’s long-term affair with Mindy, who cared for the couple’s three sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2. According to the insider, Rossdale ended up admitting his indiscretions, which “completely devastated [Gwen].” The source added: “She was mortified, livid, and embarrassed.” The once-in-love pair announced their plans to divorce last August.

So is the boyfriend the baby-daddy? Or is it Gavin Rossdale? I have no idea. And I suspect we’ll never know. Of all the stories in 2015 about celebrities bangin’ nannies, I always believed the parts of the stories where the celebrity paid off said nannies. I truly believe Ben Affleck shelled out a pretty penny to keep Christine Ouzounian quiet, and word was that Gavin parted with $1 million to get Mindy to go away. Unless Mindy starts filing paperwork for a paternity test or child support, I suspect we’ll never know.

    Nothing fixes a relationship like having a baby.
    *insert sarcasm here*

    How some men can be so stupid it’s beyond me. And how some women can take advantage of things this way is appalling.

  2. Locke Lamora says:

    So she got 1 million dollars for banging a married man? What a time to be alive.

    • fedup says:

      Maybe SHE WILL hire a nanny, and then he will cheat on her with the other nanny ? Is that how this works?

  3. Jayna says:

    Gavin was seen parked outside her daycare place months ago. She was seen having lunch with him recently. It looked like her in the photo. If that new boyfriend of hers thinks she’s going to be faithful to him, he’s naive.

  4. lowercaselois says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the baby was actually planned by the two of them.

  5. paolanqar says:

    I just took for granted that the baby is Gavin’s.
    Who’s the baby daddy?

    • Jayna says:

      She has a boyfriend now, a snowboarder or something like that. But that doesn’t mean she still hasn’t been banging Gavin, since they still seem to be in contact.

      • Rachel says:

        Okay, I’ve never been pregnant, so how far along does she have to be to determine the baby’s sex? And when did she start seeing the snowboarder?

      • Tinyfencer says:

        As early as 14 weeks, but usually around 18, I think.

      • Natty says:

        You can find out the sex by blood test around 10 weeks.

  6. Ramona Q. says:

    If there’s any chance it’s Gavin’s baby then Mindy will want a paternity test and seek child support. Oh yes, this story is just starting.

    • Wentworth Miller says:

      I’m thinking the same. Realistically speaking (from a trashy bitch pov) if I were to get pregnant and actually survived being killed by my parents for being so stupid, I wouldn’t even consider passing said kid off as the poor boyfriends when I could potentially get millions from a rich “ex” boyfriend.
      The Christine O. thing. I don’t know about that million $s.
      Two things.
      1. A million $ can’t buy anything
      2. It seemed as if she was more interested in being famous than anything else, and I don’t think that a measly million bought her off.

      One more thing. When I saw the headline, I kinda held my breath, hoping that the baby wasn’t Gavin’s. I don’t know why.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        ’cause we all still feel for Gwen and the only thing worse for her now would that the man she thought loved her but had an affair with their nanny, got said nanny pregnant with a child who will now be Gwen’s boys’ stepbrother and possibly mean trash nanny will be in their lives forever.

  7. ell says:

    i don’t understand, i thought she was still with rossdale, why are we talking about a boyfriend?

    • Sabrine says:

      I don’t see the attraction. She’s got a mediocre figure at best, is average looking, but I guess she’s still something different and convenient being in the same household.

      • mary simon says:

        She only has to be young and somewhat pretty to hook an unfaithful married man who can’t get out much to meet other women. She doesn’t have to be a great beauty. Young and conveniently within reach is all that is required. Ben’s nanny was no beauty and she looked cheap – very Walmart – but she was younger than Jen and within reach. Of course, there is the exception of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s nanny – she only met the within reach requirement – just shows what a horny pig Arnold was/is.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Because she’s impressed with him and that boosts his ego. I thought that’s why all men who cheat do so – it sure isn’t becuase the women they cheat with are better looking or better people than their wives. It’s because the mistresses have no standards and don’t hold the men accountable for any thing. Easy going lay who makes no demands and just makes him feel good about himself….pathetic I know.

  8. lovemesseg says:

    Gwen will be writing a song about this

  9. littlemissnaughty says:

    God, cheating is never great but I find the nanny scenario to be a special case of disgusting, tacky, and vomit-inducing betrayal. You come into someone’s home. And do this. And you invite someone into your and your spouse’s home and do this.

    Gwen’s behavior with Blake Shelton makes so much sense, even if it’s a bit much for me. But man, she deserves to be happy.

    • Crumpet says:

      And take care of their children….

      Very creepy, disgusting and insidious.

      • anne says:

        yes, also: “Stefani uncovered Rossdale’s long-term affair with Mindy,”


        doesn’t that break your heart.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      +1 to everything.

    • Shambles says:

      “Gwen’s behavior with Blake Shelton makes so much sense, even if it’s a bit much for me. But man, she deserves to be happy.”

      So, so much this. She’s been through a lot. Even the face-tweaking makes sense to me, as she spent years trying to earn the love of a dog that she was crazy about. I hope that country boy D is keeping you warm at night, Gwen. Get yours babe.

    • Keaton says:

      Yes exactly. It’s an added degree of humiliation and disrespect. Gavin and Gwen, Ben and Jennifer, etc I think the worst for me will always be Arnold Schwartneggar and Maria Shriver. The fact he impregnated his household worker and Maria saw that kid growing up over the years and had no clue he was Arnold’s child? That makes me twitchy with rage. What is wrong with these men? I don’t think I could ever forgive that kind of behavior. And yes this is why I’m Team Gwen Happiness too.

      • NewWester says:

        Don’t forget Arnold had impregnated both the housekeeper and Maria around the same time. That is a whole extra layer of gross

      • vilebody says:

        Ugh I had forgotten. He got a disgustingly easy pass on that.

      • anne says:

        I always remember hearing that – long before he met Maria – Arnold had commented that he wanted “to marry a Kennedy.” He named it as one of his life goals or something. That always made me feel bad for Maria – and question Arnold’s motives for being with her.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Yep. It’s so thoroughly horrible and I too can’t blame her for being thrilled to show the world she is happy with Blake. 3 years! I imagine now she can look back and see some things she didn’t before.

  10. serena says:

    Seems like that’s the new life goal of this generation: bang famous people (don’t care if they’re married) and make them pay child support. Wow.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      No not really. There are rotten eggs in every generation, and the “cheating with the nanny” is age old.

    • Easypeasy123 says:

      Uh getting knocked up for money is nothing new

  11. teacakes says:


    I have to give Pearl Lowe this much, she really did raise Daisy as if she were her and Danny Goffey’s daughter (even though Daisy was born before Pearl and Danny got together) and the paternity scandal with Gavin happened I can honestly believe it wasn’t about money.

    Can’t believe I have to admit that a former crackhead hot mess was less devoid of integrity than someone whose job was childcare.

  12. Squiggisbig says:

    I’m guessing this will be another Daisey Lowe scandal in a few years.

  13. Shambles says:

    I’m really biased against Mindys, because my ex was cheating on me with one when we broke up (this was after he had been cheating on me with many other people throughout the relationship) and she’s been plastering pictures of them all over social media for the past 6 months as if he’s some sort of prize. I had to drop some things off to him last night, and I feel like I need a shower every time I’m near him now that I know how gross he is. Always on team Gwen for those reasons. Lesson to cheating Mindys: the guy you’re stealing is no prize. Have him. Ha.

    • What's inside says:

      I feel that way about Darlene’s. Never met a good one.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      You are much better off though at first I’m sure it did not feel that way at all. My ex and I aren’t even divorced yet and his new victim does the same. It gives me a laugh because she has no idea what she is in for but gloat on girlfriend I’m glad to be free of him.

  14. Ravensdaughter says:

    Did Gavin get custody of the Pom? Oh no!

    • Andrea says:

      I think so. Maybe Gwen felt like she would be in Oklahoma too much.

    • bella says:

      Exactly my thought and concern – the Pom!
      Poor darling…for whatever reason, I wish he was with Gwen.

      On the Blake issue…
      I hope it’s real between them, but have been following and it’s implied that the “relationship” is arranged.

      I hope it isn’t…she’s always been a favorite of mine and it would be nice to know that she’s got some happiness in life, especially given that Gavin appears to be a douche.

  15. AJ says:

    Why do celebs hire young attractive women to be their nannies? If I was a celeb mom, I’d only be looking for a Mrs. Doubtfire or a gay man.

    • mary simon says:

      Or someone who looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s troll of a nanny? Looked what happened there.

      • anne says:

        This is a weird comment, I know, but I see a strong facial similarity between Arnold & the woman he had a child with. I know an unfaithful man will be an unfaithful man, but maybe that was part of the attraction.

      • AJ says:

        She was still younger than Arnold. It’s not just about hiring someone less attractive than you. You’re a young celeb; most everyone is more unattractive than you, you’ve got to raise the stakes and go for old or gay. Or both.

  16. Priya says:

    Is one of his eyes higher than the other? Like by a lot?

  17. TheOtherSam says:

    Good for gossip, but probably a tempest in a teapot. The nanny is hooked up with this younger surfer dude, he’s likely the father. The photos of Gavin and her having the recent lunch show a third person sitting with them, behind her – $10 its her bf. I have a hunch there’s no big story here.

    Don’t get me wrong Gavin’s gross, whatever went down wasn’t kosher – rich celebs should try to find people other than the help to play with, there are plenty out there. But it’s too obvious. My gut just tells me there’s more to the story, as in Gwen knew about the situation and played otherwise. How would she not see her own nanny copy-catting her style?

    Hollywood folks live weird lives; open marriages are normal. I can’t see why else Gavin would feel comfortable having lunch in broad daylight with this girl, given the history.

    • Jayna says:

      Copy-catting her style Gwen would take as a compliment. She probably even gave her clothes she didn’t want anymore, etc. She had no idea she was lusting after her husband. She thought Mindy was not only her nanny but her friend.

  18. Amanda G says:

    Hopefully her kid will have better morals than she does…oops, did I say that out loud? 😉

  19. Carol says:

    Its so creepy that the nanny single-white-femaled Stefani.
