While they were thrilled at the news, it will mean that Blake will be away from his wife and her three sons, Apollo, nine, Zuma, 15, and Kingston, 17.

They may not have children together, but Blake takes his role as a stepfather very seriously.

"There's definitely nothing easy about it," he said during an interview on radio show The Ride with Kimo & Heather in 2021. "I don't know if it's as hard or harder or not as hard as being an actual biological parent, you know?"

But Blake is thankful to have the perfect role model to follow. "I love my stepfather, and I looked up to him. And he's like a father to me," he said. "So, you know, I have a good inspiration in my life to how to do this and the kind of stepdad I want to be.

"I'm not gonna lie. I don't take it so serious that I'm not enjoying this time because I really am," he continued. "Especially, you know, now that we're five years into this thing, I can't imagine my life without these kids now."

Gwen and Blake split their time between their beautiful home in Los Angeles and their fun-filled ranch in Oklahoma.In an interview at the Country Radio Seminar in 2022, Blake spoke about how his stepsons adjusted to life in the country.

"The two of them were like, ‘Well, what do we do now?'" he said of Zuma and Kingston. "I go, ‘Go out that door and don’t come back till you’re too tired to go any further.’ Well, they can’t even imagine just going down to the creek with a net or turning over rocks or getting on a buggy and driving around."

That has all changed now, and if Gwen and Blake's Instagram feeds are anything to go by, the boys are hands on at the Oklahoma farm - as is their mom.
