Stefani's eldest sons, Kingston, 15, and Zuma, 12, were the ones to make the ceremony official, according to a new report, by signing off on the couple's paperwork. Stefani, 51, and Shelton's marriage certificate shows that the duo wed on Saturday, July 3, at a place called "Gwen's Chapel" — the special sanctuary the country crooner built for his new wife — on Shelton's ranch in in Mill Creek, OK.
The Voice host Carson Daly's name also appeared on the certificate, obtained by TMZ, as he officiated the entire ceremony. According to the doc, Daly is an ordained minister for Universal Life Church in Johnston County, OK.
Meanwhile, Stefani's youngest son, 7-year-old Apollo, also had a role in the ceremony, even though his name did not appear on the paperwork.
Kingston, Zuma and Apollo — who the "Hollaback Girl" songstress shares with ex-hubby Gavin Rossdale —"played a big part in the day because she and Blake wanted them to know they were all joining together as a family," an OK! source explained, adding, "they also wrote that into their vows."
The Hollywood couple, who announced their engagement last October, had the wedding of their dreams, and OK! reported that they're already preparing for the next big milestone in their life — a baby. According to reports, the newlyweds have already started looking for a surrogate.
Shelton, 45, may be gearing up to become a father to his own little one, but he's also "super excited" about becoming a stepdad to Stefani's sons. On the other hand, Rossdale isn't loving the idea of splitting daddy duties with Shelton.
OK! exclusively learned that the rocker wanted to have a talk with the "God's Country" crooner "to lay down some ground rules" on the matter. The source noted that the British musician, 55, already feels that Shelton overstepped when it came to his parenting duties.
"Gavin would like to say his piece sooner rather than later," the source continued. "He’s gotten ticked off at Blake in the past for seemingly overstepping his bounds, and is ready to make it clear he has final authority with the boys."
Shelton may be in new territory when it comes to being a dad, but he's been in the kids' lives for some time now: He and Stefani have been going strong ever since they first met on The Voice six years ago.
