On Thursday, the celebrated singer Gwen Stefani received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to commemorate her accomplishments. In support of her, her proud husband and her three children came out in full force.
Apollo, the son of Gwen Stefani, is a fan of Blake Shelton’s style.
While Kingston, 17, and Zuma, 15, opted to dress to the nines in stylish suits to attend the special, high-profile occasion, 9-year-old Apollo took a page out of his stepdad’s style book in choosing his fancy attire for the event.

The “Hollaback Girl” singer’s son donned a blue blazer over a white button-down shirt, paired with dark denim jeans and brown cowboy boots to complete the look.
In fact, the look was so similar to Shelton’s own wardrobe for the occasion that it almost looked like Apollo was cosplaying as Shelton for the occasion.
In an outfit that included a dress with a silver star-covered skirt and metallic silver boots, Stefani — who shares three sons with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale — wore a shimmering silver ensemble.
Shelton kind words about Stefani
At the same time, Shelton offered an impassioned speech at the event in which he praised his ladylove for her humanity and her focus on being a present and caring mom.
“The first time I met Gwen Stefani was in 2014,” Shelton revealed in a statement about his wedding to her in July of 2021. As a famous person, she wasn’t like any other famous person that I’ve ever met before. She drove herself to work in a black minivan that had car seats inside in which she drove herself to work. As far as I know, she did not check in with security. At the time, she came in with a baby and two young boys, which created an atmosphere of security since no one went near them.
She was a mother first and foremost, and her number one job was to ensure her children were taken care of. He continued, “It was clear to me that she was a mother first and foremost.” It has been almost 10 years since I had the pleasure of meeting her, and I can honestly say that now, almost 10 years later, I can tell you with absolute certainty, that being a mother is the most important thing in her life. That’s rare in this industry.”.
In a conversation with ET’s Cassie DiLaura following the emotional ceremony, Stefani explained how much Shelton’s kind words meant to her, and how much she appreciated Shelton’s thoughtful speech.
She explained that he is usually a jokester, and he’s just gonna come out of nowhere and ad-lib,” she said. The fact that he gave an actual speech, that alone was mind-blowing to me. All the words he said today were just profound.
According to her, the Walk of Fame honor was “amazing. It makes you take a look at your life and ask, ‘Wow, how did that happen?’ and it happened so fast.”
