Gwen Stefani and her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, share three adorable sons: Kingston (age 14), Zuma (age 11), and Apollo (age six). Since Gwen and Blake Shelton have been dating for over four years, he’s been around the boys quite a bit.
It’s clear that Blake has embraced a fatherly role in the boys’ lives. Gwen often posts photos of him with her sons, and you can see how much he cares for them.
Most recently, she posted a video of Blake giving Kingston some kisses on the cheek when he celebrated his 14th birthday in May.
When Father’s Day rolled around this year, Gwen wanted to take some time to thank Blake for stepping up and being a father figure in her sons’ lives.
Gwen posted a photo slideshow full of pictures of Blake and her sons. The last photo in the set is a family snapshot of her and Blake with her eldest boys, Kingston and Zuma.
Just as sweet as the photos themselves was Gwen’s Father’s Day message for Blake. “happy father’s day @blakeshelton thank u for helping me raise these boys!!” Gwen wrote, including the hashtag “#weloveyou!”
Gwen ended her message by writing her and her sons’ initials with a bunch of hearts. See the loving message and photo slideshow she posted for Blake below.
Blake has always been good about including Gwen’s sons in things. A few years back when he filmed his music video for “I’ll Name the Dogs” he had both Kingston and Zuma appear in the clip as guests at a wedding. He even asked Gwen’s niece, Stella, to be in the video!
See if you can spot Kingston, Zuma, and Stella in the music video for “I’ll Name the Dogs” below.
We hope Blake had a happy Father’s Day this year!
