Gwen Stefani’s Sons Love Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been vocal about their relationship, but until recently, Stefani’s children have been kept out of the spotlight when it comes to their dating.
But in an interview with Extra, Stefani reveals that her sons are just as smitten with the country singer as she is.
“They’re just into him … who isn’t?” she says. “We always have fun together, it’s a blast.” Stefani has three young songs from her relationship with Gavin Rossdale: Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 3.
While the boys enjoy spending time with Shelton, she admitted that they aren’t big fans of The Voice. “They really want you to be their mom,” she says. “It’s all about them, they don’t want to know about work or songs. They are like, ‘Mom, where are my shoes? Mom, what about me?’”
In early April, Stefani shared a photo of her three sons’ arms, showing that they all copied Shelton’s tattoo of barbed wire and deer footprints. At first glance it’s hard to spot the real tattoo, but upon a closer look Shelton’s larger forearm is realized.
The country star has previously admitted his regrets of this particular ink, but it’s not the artist’s fault he hates it.
“I can’t blame it on the tattoo guy, because I had been drinking on this occasion,” Shelton said in a 2013 interview with Access Hollywood. “I drew him this deer track and he just went to the copier and made a copy and slapped it on there, and that’s what I drew.”
Six months later, he added the barbed wire, but the tracks remain the same. “To this moment, people still come up to me and say, ‘Man, ladybugs … that’s cool. What does that mean to you?’” Shelton told Mix 106.5. “I probably have the crappiest tattoo — not only in country music, but maybe the world.”
Stefani and Shelton have been dating in the public eye since November of 2015.
