Gwen Stefani (opens in new tab) and Blake Shelton (opens in new tab) are deep in wedding planning mode and merging their lives together means officially blending their families, as well. They seem to be off to a great start in that department. A source close to the couple recently revealed that Stefani's three sons from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale—Kingston, 14, Zuma Nesta Rock, 12, and Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale, 6—will be very involved in the big day.

"Gwen's sons are just really solid, sweet kids, and they're so excited for Blake and Gwen to get married," the friend told People (opens in new tab). "They can't wait to stand by their sides."

It's not surprising though, since Stefani has reportedly (opens in new tab) prioritized her sons every step of the way throughout her relationship with Shelton—and he's apparently (and awesomely) done exactly the same.

"From the beginning, Gwen made it clear to Blake that her boys were No. 1 in her life, and Blake always respected this," a source said. "He never wanted to overstep and made sure everyone was comfortable with his role in her sons’ lives."
