The words “nanny” and “divorce” are entwined these days in only the most negative way, but in this case a nanny scandal has led to happier beginnings. Gwen Stefani’s former nanny has given birth to a baby boy, officially closing the book on a pretty terrible chapter in the lives of everyone involved in Stefani and ex Gavin Rossdale’s split. Mindy Mann, who allegedly was involved with Rossdale while the singer was still married to Stefani, gave birth to her first child this week, her sister announced on Instagram.
Proud auntie Nicole Jennifer Mann posted this photo of her new nephew with a sweet message:

The baby’s dad hasn’t been identified, but it is presumed to be Mann’s boyfriend, Spencer Gutcheon. Mann is the owner of Pint Size Kids, who was entrusted with taking care of Stefani and Rossdale’s three children — Kingston, Zuma and Apollo. When news broke in 2015 that the nanny had been carrying on a three-year-long affair with Rossdale, all hell broke loose, and it didn’t take long for Stefani to file for divorce and move on. According to her sources, the nightmare left Stefani feeling “mortified, livid and embarrassed.”

Fortunately, from out of the ashes of this explosion, a lot of happiness has been found. Stefani and Blake Shelton have been seriously dating for about a year now, and things are moving pretty fast — word on the street is that they’ve hired a wedding planner, though they have yet to set a date (or even get engaged, so take that rumor with a grain of salt).
Rossdale is rumored to be dating — wait for it — Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren, a former nanny from Sweden who has just a wee bit of experience with cheating husbands (again, grain of salt, because the similarities are too crazy).
As for Mann, everyone deserves a second chance and redemption. A new baby offers a fresh, new start and can change a person for the better. It sounds like all parties are pressing forward and moving on with life in the best way possible.
