When someone starts a relationship with a person who has welcomed children already, the first thing they should do is earning the little ones' affection.
Everything suggests that Blake Shelton did it flawlessly as Gwen Stefani’s children, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, even put on clothes like the ones Shelton wears.
According to Us Magazine, they set that clear during a family trip they did to the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, Oklahoma, on July 17, 2017. Kingston, 11, took it very seriously as he chose a button-down shirt, jeans, and cowboy boots.
Zuma, 9, only wore a camouflage shirt, black shorts, and matching sandals. Apollo, 4, put on a black shirt and camo shorts. Shelton later tweeted about the family outing pointing out how fun it was.
When the visit was over, they went to the souvenir shop to pick up a few items to take back home. Shelton bought a hand-carved knife with a beaded handle, Stefani chose some pieces of jewelry, and Apollo received a stuffed animal.
One of the most shocking aspects of their family day was that they went from Shelton’s home in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, to the exhibit, which is about 30 miles away, boarding a helicopter.
As they got back home, they took to the lake on a boat to keep enjoying the day. Once there, Shelton and the children jumped off the boat’s top deck to the water while Stefani captured the moment with her phone.
All the pictures and videos, including the ones showing the family swimming and fishing, were uploaded to Stefani’s Snapchat account. The last photo was captioned with ‘another amazing day.’
After meeting on the set of The Voice, Shelton and Stefani began dating in November 2015. They had just finished their relationships and decided that it was time for them to move on.
Stefani announced the split to Gavin Rossdale, the father of the three children, in August 2015, while Shelton finalized his divorce from Miranda Lambert in July 2015.
