Sexiest step-dad alive?
Blake Shelton, who was just named People’s Sexiest Man Alive, tells the mag for the special issue that he’s fallen for not only girlfriend Gwen Stefani but also her three sons, Kingston, 11, Zuma, 9, and Apollo, 3.
“For a long time, it was awkward trying to figure out what my place is and in their mind too,” Blake says of Gwen’s sons with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale. “The best part for me, selfishly, is discovering a part of myself that I guess I never really knew was in there. It’s definitely an instinct that kind of kicks in.”
BS goes on to call the brood “pretty special.”
“They’re so damn funny,” he adds. “It’s just my first time being around it, and it’s easy to fall in love with those kids.”
His relationship with Gwen isn’t doing so bad either.
“It just feels like it gets stronger all the time, you know? It’s crazy,” he says.
