Gwen Stefani throws son Zuma a Harry Potter-themed birthday party

By Emmy Griffiths

Gwen Stefani used her creative powers to throw an elaborate Harry Potter-themed birthday party for her son Zuma's ninth birthday! The singer's middle child with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale is clearly a huge fan of the series, and the house was decked out with Hogwarts themed merchandise, from Hufflepuff banners decorated with matching balloons to life-sized cut outs of the most famous characters of the franchise, including Severus Snape, Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy.

Gwen shared videos and snaps of the exciting day on her Instagram Stories, showing off the amazing fake Platform nine and three quarters which leads into a Hogwarts-themed room, the buffet of wizard-themed food complete with an owl made out of fruit, and an incredibly three-tier cake with a Sorting Hat top.

Gwen also shares Kingston, 11 and three-year-old Apollo with Gavin, who recently opened up about his split from the Don't Speak singer, telling US Weekly: "There's been a lot of pain and sadness. It really teaches you perspective on life. It's really health, happiness and safety. After that, I don't know what there is other than that." He continued: "We're all products of nuclear families. My parents have been married three times each. I'm just a junior. I never thought I would get divorced. But it just happens. All these life things. I'm trying to be a really good dad and make good records and shoot good TV shows."

Earlier this year, Gavin told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that he was still influenced by his wife's work during a visit to This Morning. He said: "I was with her for 20 years. So much in the same way I think for her material, I'm all over her material, and for me, she's all over mine. It's impossible to separate that."
