Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and her three boys – Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 5 – made their red carpet debut together as a family this past weekend when they attended the premiere of UglyDolls at the Regal Cinemas L.A. And, of course, the Wind It Up singer documented the night on her Instagram Story.
In the new animated feature, Shelton voices the character of Ox, a light green rabbit with one eye who is the unofficial mayor of Uglyville. He is a mentor to the other UglyDolls, and he keeps them safe. But, he isn’t just about security – Ox also likes to party.

Shelton explained that his character has a big secret which he has been hiding for a long time, but he did it for the right reasons.
The Voice coach kept it casual for the premiere, wearing a blue plaid shirt, jeans, a navy jacket, and brown boots. Stefani smiled for the cameras while rocking a black top, boyfriend jeans with colorful circle detailing, fishnets, and black heels. She topped off the look with a multi-colored jacket.
“It’s a rare thing for Gwen and I to even get out at all. We don’t really get a chance to do anything. One of the two of us are working, or the kids are in school — it just never works out for us to all go out. We get to do it about four or five times a year — this is one of them,” Shelton told Extra.
Shelton added that he was happy all five of them were able to go to the premiere together. He says the kids were excited to see the movie, and he liked being a part of the project because it has such a great message. The country music superstar also claimed that his “cool points went up” with the boys because he voiced a character in the movie.
Shelton joked that he related to his character because the doll is “super ugly” and he has a “big belly hanging off him.”

During the car ride on the way to the premiere, Stefani shared on her Instagram story all of the UglyDolls billboards that they passed along the way. She also posted some video clips from the red carpet, as well as inside the movie screening and the after-party.
Late last week, Gwen Stefani posted a throwback pic from when she and Blake Shelton started dating in 2015, and they were both coaches on The Voice. The photo showed the two smiling at each other in passing, and she wrote in the caption, “#ticktock #timeflies @blakeshelton #bestie ❤️ gx.”
UglyDolls hits theaters nationwide on May 3rd.
