This past weekend, cameras caught Blake Shelton enjoying some family time with his longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani, her dad, Dennis, and her three sons, Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4. Everyone appeared to be having a good time, and it looks like Shelton is well on his way to official stepdad status.
The 42-year-old country superstar was all smiles after having lunch at Dennis’ Los Angeles home with Stefani and the boys, and he rocked his classic, casual Shelton style – an untucked black shirt, faded jeans, a brown hooded jacket, sneakers, and a blue and white ball cap.

As always, Stefani looked stylish wearing an Ellie Mae copper and black Addison Coat, a white Moschino wool sweater with the iconic teddy bear, jeans, and tan leather ankle boots. The 49-year-old wore her signature platinum hair tied up in a high knot, and her skin looked flawless in natural makeup.
As they left Dennis’ home, Shelton made fun of Kingston’s furry shoes, while the 12-year-old smiled through the teasing, and Stefani walked with 4-year-old Apollo while he wore a red fireman’s helmet.
According to The Daily Mail, Stefani is currently on a break from her Las Vegas residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood. She wrapped up the first leg on New Year’s Eve and is scheduled to start up again on February 27th.

Insiders say that Stefani and Shelton “are on a path to get married,” but before they tie the knot “there are obstacles they have to deal with.”
The couple has been dating since 2015, and they are reportedly taking things slow for the sake of the kids. Sources say their living arrangement has become an issue because Stefani and the kids live in Los Angeles, but Shelton splits his time between LA and Oklahoma.
To deal with their problems, a source says the couple is leaning on their faith.
“Gwen and Blake met with her priest for a counseling session” last weekend, says an insider.
Stefani isn’t pressuring Shelton to move to LA full-time or to put a ring on her finger because she knows they will get engaged at the right time. They have been pretty much inseparable since they started dating, and their bond is stronger than ever.
“One thing Gwen never does though is pressure Blake or even bring it up, unless it’s in a joking way. But if he does finally pop the question on Valentine’s Day, Gwen will be elated,” says an insider. “He has been thinking about the perfect ring, the perfect timing, whether or not he will get on one knee and the perfect wording to ask Gwen to spend the rest of her life with him.”
Neither Blake Shelton or Gwen Stefani have commented on the latest rumors surrounding their relationship.
