On Instagram, Stefani continued the birthday love by posting a video of the pair singing their song, “Nobody But You”, during her concert at the Hollywood Bowl on June 3. “[I] don’t wanna luv nobody but u:) happy birthday @blakeshelton,” she captioned the post.
The day after Shelton’s birthday happened to be Father’s Day, which gave Stefani another opportunity to heap on the praise.
“Happy father’s day @blakeshelton,” she wrote on Instagram with a photo of the couple and her children Kingston, 16, Zuma, 13, and Apollo, 9, whom she shares with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. “We all love u sooooo much god really gave me you for the ups and downs.”
In a follow up post showing Shelton playfully wrestling with her son, Stefani wrote, “Grateful for u every day @blakeshelton.”
