Blake Shelton admitted that being around his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani’s children, helped bring out a certain instinct in him. He said he realized that he had been missing out.


According to Today, the star loves Stefani’s three boys. In an interview on March 20, 2018, he admitted that he had actually accepted that he’d never have children in his life.

Shelton, 41, is having the time of his life with his girlfriend’s children. The country musician went to Today on Tuesday to chat about his new album Texoma Shore.

There he also shared with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford that Stefani’s sons had changed his perspective on his role in parenting.“And so having them around … I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s so much fun,” he admitted.


Stefani has three boys, Apollo Bowie Flynn, 4, Zuma Nesta Rock, 9½, and Kingston James McGregor, 11. In November 2017, Shelton spoke to People about how the boys had helped his fatherly instincts materialize.

“At this point in my life, I kind of had put [having kids] as like, ‘Well, that wasn’t meant to be.’ Then all of a sudden it happens one way or another and it’s like, ‘Wow, [I] missed out on a lot.’”

The singer confessed that for a long time, it was awkward trying to figure out what his place was and in their minds. He said that the best part for him was discovering a part of himself that he never really knew was in there.


Shelton joked that there were days where he wondered when school would start for the energetic children. But an hour later he’d find himself thinking how much he couldn’t wait until they got home.


He admitted that the boys were very funny. Shelton shared that it was his first time being around children like that and confessed that it was easy to fall in love with them.

The country singer said that they were very special.


The star was born in Ada, Oklahoma, to Dorothy, a beauty salon owner, and Richard Shelton, a used car salesman. Shelton began singing at an early age and by the age of 12; he was taught how to play the guitar by his uncle.

At age 15, he had written his first song and by age 16, he had received a Denbo Diamond Award in his home state. On November 13, 1990, his older brother Richie Shelton (who was 24) was killed in an automobile accident.

After graduating from high school at seventeen, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a singing career.
