Blake Shelton has lovingly taken on the role of stepfather in the lives of Gwen Stefani‘s sons, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo.
To celebrate his impact on their family, Stefani shared a sweet Father’s Day post to her husband on Sunday (June 19). “happy father’s day @blakeshelton,” she wrote alongside an adorable series of family photos. “we all love u sooooo much god really gave me you for the ups and downs.”
In a follow-up post, the “Hollaback Girl” singer shared a video of the country music star play wrestling with eight-year-old Apollo, who couldn’t stop giggling. “grateful for u every day @blakeshelton,” Stefani captioned the clip.
Shelton also celebrated his 46th birthday on Saturday (June 18), and he posted a video from his performance at Country Summer Music Festival, where Stefani is seen surprising him onstage with a cake. “Thank y’all for all the birthday wishes this past weekend and for y’all who came out to party at Country Summer!!! What a damn time we had.. also.. I love you @gwenstefani!!!!” he captioned the clip. See his post here.
Stefani shares Kingston, Zuma and Apollo with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. The former couple were married for 13 years — and dated for nearly six years before that — but parted ways in 2015.
Shelton and Stefani tied the knot in 2021. “I love my stepfather, and I looked up to him, and he’s like a father to me, so I have a good inspiration in my life for how to do this and the kind of stepdad I want to be,” Shelton previously explained in an interview KFROG’s The Ride with Kimo & Heather. “I also have a blast with it, I’m not gonna lie. I don’t take it so serious that I’m not enjoying this time, because I really am, especially now that we’re five years into this thing. I can’t imagine my life without these kids now.”
