Gwen Stefani and her three sons are grateful for Blake Shelton's presence in their lives.
Stefani, 50, has three sons—Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6—from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale. But she's making it known that boyfriend of nearly five years Blake Shelton deserves praise for his role as a parent to her boys.
"happy father’s day @blakeshelton thank u for helping me raise these boys!! #weloveyou! G❤️K❤️Z❤️A gx," Stefani wrote on Instagram.
The post was accompanied by a set of pictures showing Shelton enthusiastically caught up in various activities with the boys.

Shelton was married on two previous occasions, but he didn't welcome children of his own in those relationships. He and Stefani have been together since 2015 after meeting on The Voice.
Stefani, the No Doubt lead vocalist, also honoured her own father, Dennis, on Father's Day Sunday. In Instagram post, Gwen's "poppie" is seen posing with her, Blake, and his grandchildren.
