Gwen Stefani (Gavin Rossdale) are proud parents to three sons, Zuma, 14, and Apollo (9).
Though Stefani and Rossdale are no longer together — they split in 2015 after nearly 12 years of marriage and Stefani has since married Blake Shelton — the former couple put their kids first no matter what.
Rossdale shared with PEOPLE in 2020 that his sons inspired him to create the best music possible, even if it was just for the pride of making them proud. “I don’t want them to hear my records and tell their friends, ‘What ever happened to my dad?’ Bush said. “I want them be like ‘My father’s on fire. They inspire me because I want my children to love what I do. They motivate me to do better.
He added of his parenting style, “I don’t like if they’re lazy — if they don’t read a book, don’t talk. I can be seen as a little bit soft because I don’t want to be irritating. So I respect them, I listen to them, and I learn from their needs. However I don’t try to be cool father. I am not their friend.
Stefani shared with us that her dyslexic sons are hers, as well as her three other boys. She said that her parenting style was different after becoming a mother.
“I was in a band all my life and I felt free, so I always believed I would be truly free. [my kids] I was free to do whatever I wanted. You learn that boundaries are what make them feel safest,” she explained to PEOPLE in 2017. It’s hard to have a discipline chart and follow-up on everything. It takes work. You’ll get the results if you work hard.
Stefani’s second husband Shelton, whom she wed in 2021, is helping to raise her children. He said that he was proud to be a stepfather and called him a hero. He is a great stepfather, and I love him. I also look up to him as a father. This gives me a lot of inspiration for what I can do and how I want to be a stepdad. It’s something I take very seriously.”
He added, “But, I also have fun with it, and I’m certainly not lying. It’s not like I take it too seriously, that I don’t enjoy this time. Especially now that we’re five-years into this. “I can’t imagine my life with these children now.
