Gwen Stefani threw her son a Harry Potter party and it’s #BirthdayGoals

Gwen Stefani and daughter Apollo

Gwen Stefani (pictured above with son Apollo) shares lots of snippets of family life on social media, but son Zuma’s Harry Potter party totally takes the sorting hat birthday cake!

Happy Birthday Zuma!

Gwen’s son turns nine later this month, and Gwen got ahead of the game with the kind of super-special themed party every JK Rowling fan would go nuts for. We’re not sure if scheduling issues or custody arrangements prompted this early celebration, but what we do know is that Zuma’s party was amazing.

These reposted clips from Gwen’s Instagram stories give us a tiny glimpse into how Zuma’s big day rolled out. The vision shows the birthday boy wearing some a la Harry Potter heavy-framed glasses, apparently thoroughly enjoying his Potion Bar. Because awesome. Also delicious.

Inflatable play equipment in what is an impressively vast backyard, a bespoke Platform 9 3/4 and a life-sized (gulp!) Professor Snape jostled with fruity owl sculptures and house flags for pride of place.

Draco Malfoy even pops up as a guest.

Down to earth

We love that this party is not ultra-party-planned or super-polished, rather it’s the relatable kind we can imagine busy parents throwing themselves – albeit on a more limited budget. Family, pets and friends are all on hand to help Zuma celebrate and it all looks pretty relaxed – and basically lots of fun.

Zuma is the middle child in Gwen’s cute gang. She’s also mum to 11-year-old son Kingston and 3-year-old Apollo. The kids’ father is Gwen’s ex-hubby, Gavin Rossdale. 

Gwen’s now in a relationship with fellow The Voice judge Blake Shelton. The pair – who met at work – got together in November 2015 when Blake’s marriage of 5 years broke down – and have been solid ever since. 

Scroll through to watch Gwen’s stories from the day. We wish she was our mum.

Happy Birthday, Zuma!
