He's growing up so fast!
On May 26, music stars Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale took to Instagram to mark son Kingston's 14th birthday. Gwen shared a gushing post, wishing "a happy 14th bday to my first born son -thank u God for marking me HIS MAMMA GX #loveukingstonjames," alongside a photo of her son at the beach.
Gwen then shared another sweet post, this time featuring her boyfriend of nearly five years, Blake Shelton, with Kingston, captioning the clip — which shows the country music star repeatedly and goofily kissing on his (if reports are to be believed) future stepson's face — "happy b day kingking gx @blakeshelton #😘😘😘😘😘😘😘."
The teen's father, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale — who split from the No Doubt singer in the summer of 2015 after nearly 13 years of marriage and two decades as a couple — also took to social media to honor his eldest boy and second-born child. (In addition to Kingston and his two younger sons with Gwen, Gavin has an adult daughter, model-actress Daisy Lowe, with old friend Pearl Lowe.)
Gavin posted a slideshow of photos of Kingston and wrote next to it, "kingston james mc gregor rossdale – 14 years old today . what a journey with this young man . king you blow me away . such a kind funny smart handsome naughty spirited articulate dynamic sapien. you're so full of love and humor it feels like we got something right although the credit belongs to you . we are gonna celebrate hard tonight . i'm sorry there is no large gathering as you had requested (and advertised 😳😳😳😂😂🤷🏽🎂) but that will come . let's all get safer first . what can i tell you – you're the love of my life. the eye of my apple . you know i do it all (mostly)for you and your siblings right ? 🖤."
Gwen and Gavin share custody of their three boys — Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6 — and Blake helps Gwen co-parent them when they're with her.
When host Hoda Kotb asked the singer in 2019 during an interview on "Today" if she thought Blake would be a good dad, Gwen responded, "He is a good dad, actually. He's been helping me out a lot, so I literally get to the point where I'm like, 'You gotta get home, come on, I need some help.' It's hard — I got three boys."
