Mother's Day is a special occasion for every mom, and it usually comes in the form of a loving husband planning something special. But interestingly, the day came and went for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani with nothing planned by the cowboy.

Speaking to People at a recent gala appearance in Las Vegas, Shelton revealed that he planned on doing absolutely nothing for Mother's Day this year despite Stefani being a mom of three boys

But don't worry: The longest-tenured Voice Coach alum has a perfectly good excuse — and it's adorable.

"You know what? I don't have to, because her sons have been incredible," he said. As it turns out, he has reminded the boys of the holiday in years past, and every year, they beat their stepdad to the punch.

"They're like, 'No, no, no. We've already thought about it. We're going to make breakfast for her,'" Shelton revealed.

Blake Shelton is the ultimate stepdad to Gwen Stefani's kids 

The country music legend — and successful restauranteur — has a very close relationships with Stefani's kids, Kingston (17), Zuma (15), and Apollo, who just turned 10 in February. Whether Shelton is teaming up with the boys to put a unique spin on a Thanksgiving tradition or joining them on a memorable family fishing trip, he's fully embraced his role as stepdad. 

"I always can kind of just take a back seat and watch these boys," he told People. "They do an incredible job spoiling her."

We'd say Shelton gets a free pass this year due to the fantastic children Stefani has raised. With kids like that, you're bound to get overshadowed anyway!

Besides, we don't think Shelton had time this year to do much prep; he was too busy taking super-sweet pictures with his own mom in celebration of Mother's Day. 

Shelton is slated to appear on The Voice Season 25 Finale on May 21 to celebrate the show's historic run. Be sure to tune in!
