All is well between Gwen Stefani and her boyfriend, Blake Shelton, but there is one person in her world who will forever be irreplaceable — Gavin Rossdale.
According to a new report, the former No Doubt singer is thrilled by the way Blake cares for her three sons — Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4 — but she does not expect nor want him to replace their loving father, Gavin.
One person told Hollywood Life that Gwen appreciates the bond between Gavin and his boys and added: “Gwen loves how close the kids are with Blake but she also understands the bond they share with their dad, and she really encourages it. Gavin is based a lot of the time in London but he does make time to be in L.A. so he can see the kids, he’s still a big part of their lives. It’s so important to Gwen that her kids continue to have a solid relationship with their dad, so she’s very flexible when it comes to sharing time with Gavin, on holidays and all through the year too.”
The family friend went on to say: “The co-parenting agreement that Gavin and Gwen worked out was that they would alternate holidays, but it’s been much looser than that, and they actually try to make sure the kids spend time with both of them during the holiday season. So far there haven’t been any big dramas or struggles over the kids and holidays, and Gwen is very grateful for that, she’s happy with the way things are working out.”
One fan reacted to the story by wishing the pair well.
The person wrote: “Love your honesty! I thought Blake and Miranda were a match made in heaven too, but Gwen seems to make Blake very happy, and she is 48 years old which she is actually older than Blake and in fantastic shape!”
Another commenter stated: “I wish them the best on their baby and their marriage. But I want to Miranda Lambert, and Blake Shelton should have stayed together cause that was the best looking couple ever. I mainly don’t like, but hey he must love them very young or something cause she looks young and he looks old. I have been married for 20 years and still going I speak how I feel about things and if NOBODY LIKE IT then oh well.”
Rumors claim the lovers are searching for a surrogate to have a baby.
