Since Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani announced that they were dating, fans from all over the world were rooted for the new pair. When they started dating each other, both Gwen and Blake went through a divorce from their former spouses. At the time, people wondered if it was a quick idea, and perhaps they were both looking for a temporary way to overcome their previous relationship.
However, now that they have been together for three years – and clearly in love – people are starting to wonder if the two want to give the wedding one more time. Now that Gwen has three children from her previous marriage, the decision to make the decision with Blake may not be something she will make alone.
Can Blake get along well with Gwen’s three boys? Would her children want Blake to be their new stepfather? This is what we know about Blake’s relationship with the children of Gwen.
How old are Gwen Stefani’s kids?
Gwen shares three sons with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale. Their eldest son, Kingston, is twelve, their middle son, Zuma, is ten, and their youngest son, Apollo, is five years old. Gwen and Gavin divorced in 2015. Their sons were still very young at the time. Apollo was just over a year old when his father and mother separated.
Blake and Gwen started dating each other in November 2015. Some people thought the boys wouldn’t have enough time to handle their parents’ divorce because Gwen was just starting dating Blake after the divorce was completed.
Does Blake Shelton get along with Gwen Stefani’s kids?
Although Blake and Gwen may soon have started a relationship, all three of her children seem to like having Blake around. Gwen regularly publishes photos of her children and Blake on her Instagram stories. They seem to spend most of the big vacations together.
Last Christmas, Gwen posted a short video on Instagram of her children who saw their presents for the first time on Christmas morning. In the video, her three sons hold each other’s hands as they walk through a giant wall of wrapping paper. As soon as they break through the paper, they see lots of Christmas presents scattered in the living room with Blake in the background, holding up his phone to record their excited faces. They were also spotted by celebrating Easter together with Easter.
Blake recently had the opportunity to speak up one of the main characters in the film, Ugly Dolls. During the premiere, Blake took Gwen and her three children to see his new film. Blake had said that by doing the film, his “cool points have risen.” But the way the kids acted so comfortably around him on the red carpet, we’re pretty sure he didn’t need any extra “cool points.”
Blake Shelton wants to be there for the kids, but not as their father
According to Hollywood Life, the Honey Bee singer has already taken on the role of stepdad, but he wants to make it clear that he is in no way trying to take Gavin’s place as their father.
“Blake plays the role of the stepfather close to his heart and really loves it,” explains a source close to Blake and Gwen. “This in no way takes the children away from Gavin and how he is a father because Gavin is a great father, but Gwen and the children are happy that everyone gets the best of both worlds.”
So it seems that Blake loves the children as much as he loves him. With Blake now in their lives, they have even more people to love and support them as they get older.
