Now that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have a house to call their own, the Hollywood couple are “truly happy” living with her three boys in Los Angeles. The “Hollaback Girl” singer and the country crooner officially moved into their California mansion after returning from Blake’s ranch in Oklahoma.
“They are very happy to be settled at last in their family home,” a source close to Gwen, 50, and Blake, 44, told Us Weekly on Thursday, September 3. “Gwen wanted to be moved in for the start of the school year, even though the kids are doing school at home because of COVID-19.”
The luxurious property is “very warm and inviting,” but the insider noted it’s especially perfect for the former No Doubt frontwoman’s three kids, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6. “[The new home has] a lot of space for the boys to tumble around and get dirty.”
Fortunately, the massive residence — which Blake and Gwen purchased for $13 million in October 2019, as Closer Weekly previously reported — caters to everyone’s needs. “Gwen has a glam closet any woman would love to have,” the insider told Us. “And Blake’s closet isn’t so shabby either. They are truly happy as a family and it’s the new beginning Gwen needed.”
Before Gwen and Blake moved into their enviable property, they were quarantining at the “God Gave Me You” singer’s home southeast of L.A. While in Oklahoma, another source told Closer that the loving pair were “enjoying [going] back to basics” with Gwen’s sons, whom she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
“The kids love taking Blake’s boat out for a spin on the lake and enjoy fishing and other activities that involve them catching their own food,” the insider explained in late May. “If the weather’s nice, they’ll cook it on the BBQ afterward.”
During their time in quarantine, Gwen made sure to soak up as many moments with her adorable kiddos as possible. “In the evening, they [would] sit down as a family and watch a movie together,” the source added.
Although the longtime lovebirds — who started dating in 2013 — have yet to reveal any plans to tie the knot, there’s no doubt Blake earned his title as the doting stepdad to Gwen’s kids. However, adjusting to the role wasn’t the easiest for the Grammy Award winner.
“That [was] a scary moment for me, because it’s one thing for me to be with the kids all the time and be their buddy … but you do have to consider after a while that they start to listen to things that you say and there’s a lot of responsibility that comes with that,” he explained during an appearance on Today in late July.
Despite some fears, Blake noted he’s never been happier since the day Gwen and her children came into his life. He gushed, “We’ve been doing things that I wished I had time to do for the last 20 years.”
We can’t wait to see all the memories Blake and Gwen make in their new home!
