In related news, Akon struggled with recording sessions for Gwen Stefani's second album because her baby son Kingston constantly cut her vocals short.
Akon is producing tracks for Stefani and became annoyed when she kept interrupting sessions to attend to Kingston.
He says, "She brought her son into the studio and she would be in the booth, she's like, 'Hold on, I've got to check on the baby!' "I'm like, come on, you've got to get this done! "But I have 3 kids of my own, so I understand."(Source)
