Gwen Stefani has started her Las Vegas residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood, and backstage at her I’m Just A Girl show it looks like the only babysitter she needs during her performances is her boyfriend, Blake Shelton. Stefani recently posted some sweet behind-the-scenes pics on Instagram of the country singer with her youngest son, Apollo, and some other kids, and even though he has no children of his own, it is clear that kids love him.
According to Life & Style, Shelton is obviously a natural with the little ones, and in the pic, kids are piling on the 42-year-old as he sits on a couch while looking at his phone. Stefani also posted a pic of her and Shelton sharing a kiss proving they are still very much in love after nearly three years together.
Recently, on the Today Show, Shelton talked about being a stepdad to Stefani’s three boys – Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 4 – and he said that at this point in his life he thought that having kids “wasn’t meant to be.” But then, all of a sudden it happened in an unexpected way and he realized he had missed out on a lot.
“For a long time, it was awkward trying to figure out what my place is and in their mind too. The best part for me, selfishly, is discovering a part of myself that I guess I never really knew was in there,” said Shelton.
Stefani also talked about Shelton’s newfound parenting skills on The Ellen DeGeneres show and said that he “just keeps getting better and cuter and more country.”
And, when she launched her Vegas residency, Stefani smiled as she talked about her boyfriend “Blakey,” and called him her “homeboy.” She also said he was an “amazing all-around human” and she is grateful that he is in her life.
During a recent interview with Good Morning America, The 48-year-old said that she celebrates Shelton in her new show because he has inspired her and changed her life.
Stefani’s I’m Just A Girl show is her first concert series since her 2016 This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour. She says she is happy being a mom and a girlfriend, but when she gets on stage, she realizes that she still needs that attention, and she still likes it.
As for their relationship, Shelton said that his bond with Stefani gets stronger every day, and he says that Stefani saved his life when they got together, and he believes she would say the same.
“Just all of a sudden, this thing just happened because of stuff, things that we were going through. Saved my life, period,” said Shelton.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani currently have no plans to wed, despite all the rumors.
