Gwen Stefani and ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale may have reached to a divorce settlement in 2016; however, their custody battle is still going on all hot and heavy explosive. Gwen, 48, and Gavin, 52, are parents to three sons Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo. The couple had filed for divorce in 2015 and had agreed to be engaged in smooth co-parenting, but it looks like they have hit a bump in the road.

Both Gwen and Gavin have opposing views on parenting and have been finding it difficult to keep up. Apparently, Gavin "wants to spend more time with his kids," which obviously his ex Gwen doesn't approve.

Gavin - who was recently on tour with Bush - had also been judging 'The Voice' UK all this while. But since both his career obligations are done with, he now wants to dedicate more time to his family, especially with his children. This doesn't seem to be going well with Gwen, who is not keen on granting him any more custody than he already enjoys.

And it is because of these reasons that sources have shared with E! News that the former couple is “going to mediation” to try and sort out their differences.

"Gwen believes that she provides a consistent living environment and that the kids should be with her the majority of the time,” the source said. “They are older now and taking their school work and activities seriously. She thinks Gavin still very much lives a rock star lifestyle and it’s in the kid’s best interest to be with her. She wants to raise the kids a certain way, and it’s very challenging because Gavin has different priorities.” 

However, whatever might be the outcome of said mediations, one can only hope that the kids end up happy and satisfied. Which sure seems like an inevitable future considering they already have two very loving parents who want to spend as much time with them as possible. But along with them, they also have their mom's boyfriend, Blake Shelton, 42, wanting to be a huge part of their lives as well.

The country star has been dating Gwen since 2015 and has grown really close to her sons. From enjoying family vacations with all of the boys to co-judging their mom on 'The Voice,' Blake has emerged to be boyfriend goals when it comes to celebrity couples, and fans can't wait for time and Gwen to have kids of their own as soon as possible.

A source has also shared with Hollywoodlife: “Gwen clams up when it comes to their marriage plans, but she’s much more candid about their amazing sex life. She can’t believe that even after three years together, the spark hasn’t faded a bit. Blake still totally rocks her world every single time."
