Gwen Stefani Shares Birthday Tribute for Son Kingston, 14: 'Thank U God for Making Me His Mamma'
Gwen Stefani feels blessed for her children.
On Tuesday, the "Nobody But You" singer, 50, marked her eldest son Kingston's 14th birthday with a heartfelt Instagram post. Sharing a sunny beachside photo of her child, Stefani wrote that she's grateful to be his mother.
"Happy 14th bday to my first born son thank u God for making me his mamma 🙏🏻gx," she captioned the post.
The Grammy winner welcomed Kingston James McGregor on May 26, 2006. At the time of his birth, he weighed 7½ lbs.
A few years into motherhood, Stefani said Kingston was "the most amazing thing that's ever happened to me."
"It's the best thing that's ever happened to me in my entire life. He is just … a miracle," she added at the time. "The whole thing … in the stomach, coming out, and then they're … a human. It's just weird; it's incredible."

In October, Stefani opened up about what she has learned from being a parent to three boys.
"One thing the kids have taught me is how to be more organized," she told Shape magazine at the time.
"I lived at home until I was 26, then I had a tour manager, then a manager, then an assistant," Stefani explained. "On tour, you even have somebody who has the key to your hotel room. But as a mom, you have to be the one in charge."
"Balance is the hardest thing, but it's also the most important — being with my family, having time with Blake where we just watch movies," said Stefani. "It seems like, with your career, you have to keep swimming, keep moving, or else you're going to look back and go, 'Shoot, it's over.' I don't like feeling like that."
She added: "I want to do creative things when I want, and I want to stop chasing all the time. It's hard, but I'm really enjoying being in the moment."
