Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been dating publicly for nearly six months, and as their romance continues, so does Shelton’s relationship with her three sons.
Prior to her romance with Shelton, Gwen Stefani was married to Gavin Rossdale and together they had three sons, Kingston, 9; Zuma, 7; and Apollo, 2. However, while the two musicians carried on with what was previously thought to be a quite successful Hollywood marriage, their relationship came crashing down last year amid allegations of Rossdale’s affair with their former nanny.
Months later, Gwen Stefani moved on with Shelton, whom she was starring alongside on The Voice Season 9, and ever since, they have been seemingly inseparable.
Gwen Stefani and Shelton’s romance began making headlines in late October 2015, but it wasn’t until November 4 when they officially went public with their relationship during an after-party for the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee. Months later, they appeared together on the red carpet at Vanity Fair‘s Oscar party, which marked their first red carpet appearance as a couple.

As Gwen Stefani and Shelton continue to get to know one another while tending to their individual careers, new albums, photos, and videos of a recent day out have hit the web. On April 23, the Daily Mail shared photos of Gwen Stefani and her boyfriend, along with her three sons, who enjoyed a weekend visit to Hugo’s for breakfast in Los Angeles. A short time later, on April 26, Extra TV revealed Gwen Stefani had shared a couple of videos on Snapchat of her boys playing baseball with Shelton.
Meanwhile, the children’s father, Rossdale, was in Florida for a show.

Last month, after Gwen Stefani and Shelton were spotted spending time with her kids in a Los Angeles park, a source spoke out, claiming it was killing Rossdale that his children were getting so close to the country singer.
“Blake is amazing with the kids. He’s such a big kid himself and loves doing all the same things as they do,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “One of his favorite things to do with them is go on hikes — they love Malibu Creek. They get out there in the mud, hunting for frogs or playing hide-and-seek. Blake loves any excuse to get outside and get dirty, so he’s a big hit with [Gwen Stefani]’s kids. It drives Gavin nuts that his kids have bonded with Blake. He hates that they’re spending so much time with him. He doesn’t have any say in it…and it’s killing him.”
In addition to spending time with Gwen Stefani’s children in Los Angeles, the boys have also been spotted with Shelton in his hometown in Oklahoma, where they spent spring break.
“[Gwen Stefani] wants to take on a few more career goals and not get into having a child right now, but that is nothing against Blake in any way, shape, or form,” a source told Hollywood Life earlier this month. “They are enjoying being together without the baby. They would hope to be married before anything like that happened anyways.”
Following news of Gwen Stefani’s divorce, a source told Us Weekly that Rossdale had been sleeping with their nanny for a whopping three years, which included a period of time when Gwen Stefani was pregnant with their youngest son.
In regard to the shocking report, both Gwen Stefani and Rossdale chose to remain silent.
