Despite their decision to divorce after 13 years of marriage, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are staying united for their kids.

“Their priority is making sure they maintain a safe and secure home for their children regardless of what’s happening. When you’re separated and have kids, you’re much more emotionally invested,” a source close to Gwen told People on Tuesday, Aug. 4.
