The eldest of Gwen Stefani‘s three sons, Kingston, celebrated his 14th birthday on Tuesday (May 26). Gwen gushed about him in a post on social media, writing, “happy 14th bday to my first born son -thank u God for marking me HIS MAMMA.”
Gwen’s ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, who is the father of all three of her boys, also wrote a birthday message for Kingston on social media.
“14 years old today . what a journey with this young man . king you blow me away,” Gavin wrote.

In an interview in April, Gavin spoke about how he and Gwen have split time with their sons during the current world situation. He said he spent the “first two weeks” with them before they left to be with their mom in Oklahoma.
Gwen and her sons are now residing on Blake Shelton‘s ranch in Oklahoma, and have been there for some time now. After four years of dating Gwen, Blake has developed a strong relationship with her boys, and they adore him right back.
Just as Gwen and Gavin showered Kingston with love on his birthday, so did Blake. Gwen posted a sweet video that shows Blake giving Kingston a big birthday hug and several kisses on the cheek.
“happy b day kingking,” Gwen captioned the video along with a bunch of kissing emojis. We sure hope the day was a happy one for him!
Like he did with Kingston, Blake often shares his love for people by giving them kisses on the cheek. Brett Eldredge, Luke Bryan, and Trace Adkins have all been subject to Blake’s public displays of affection.
In 2013, Blake and Luke participated in a behind-the-scenes interview about their hosting duties at the ACM Awards that year. Blake (unsuccessfully) tried to give Luke a smooch on the cheek, and ended up kissing a cardboard cutout of himself. Check out that hilarious video below.
