WHO ARE GWEN STEFANI’S KIDS?
Stefani has been in the limelight for over three years and has various trophies and accolades to her name, but motherhood is the biggest of all her lifetime achievements for the singer.
The “The Voice” co-host was previously married to British singer Gavin Rossdale. The former couple birthed their three sons during their 13 years of marriage.
The duo continues to co-parent their children together despite the messy end of things between them. With Shelton in her life, Stefani is sure she has a man she can trust to raise her kids well.
Her first son – Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, was born in 2006 and is already following his famous parents’ steps in becoming a singer. At age 12, Kingston made his onstage debut.
Gwen and Gavin’s second son, Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale, was born in 2008. Unlike his older brother, Zuma has inherited his mother’s love for fashion and already has a designer credit to his name.
The youngest of her boys, Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale, was born in 2014. The singer and her ex-husband had no plans for a third child but were excited and surprised when they found out that Apollo was on the way.
SHELTON AND THE BOYS
Shelton and Stefani’s relationship grew from one of mutual admiration and trust to a romance that both parties knew was right for them. As Shelton grew closer to Stefani, so did his bond with her kids.
Stefani has often gushed over how good Shelton is with her sons and how grateful she is to have him offer guidance to them. The country star teamed up with the singer’s sons to throw a surprise proposal.
On Father’s Day, Stefani ignored her ex-husband and showered all the praise on her man, Shelton, for helping her parent her sons. She also threw him a surprise birthday party, celebrating his 45th birthday.
On his part, Shelton is proud to play an important role in the boys’ lives but admitted that it feels scary to help Stefani raise her sons after her divorce. He acknowledged that he has a lot of responsibility to carry out as a stepfather, especially in being a model to the boys.
