Gwen only discovered that she had the learning condition when her sons were diagnosed.

The Voice coach shares three children, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, six, with her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.

"One thing that I’ve discovered through having kids is that I have dyslexia — everyone has things that happen and mine was that," the Grammy winner previously told Zane Lowe in 2020.

"And I feel like a lot of the problems that I have had or even decisions that I’ve made for myself stem from that, because now the children — obviously, it’s all genetic — they have some of those issues," she explained.

"They have these incredible teachers and schools, and they don’t have to have shame about it."

"They understand that their brain functions in a different way. All of our brains do, you know what I mean?"
