Gavin Rossdale enjoys every minute of being a father.

The antics of his three sons with estranged wife Gwen Stefani — Kingston, 9 1/2; Zuma, 7, and their baby brother Apollo, 20 months, keep him busier than ever.

“The boys interact so well, and they truly love each other,” Rossdale, 50, told PEOPLE during the Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic gala at Florida’s Boca Raton Resort and Club on Saturday.

“They are so sweet and protective of each other, and they have little dance parties. I am always on the lookout to see what they are doing next and how they are working their naughty habits!”

Gwen Stefani Opens Up About Raising Her Boisterous Boys and Halloween Excitement: ‘They’re at the Scary Phase’

10/29/2015 at 02:45 PM ET

If you’ve been counting down the days to Halloween, Gwen Stefani is standing in the pumpkin patch with you.

“I live for the holidays,” Stefani, 46, tells PEOPLE. “I had my Halloween costume and the decorations up before October. [The season] is so short — it’s only four weeks, so you want to see all of those things.”

For Stefani, dress up can’t come early enough: she has already slipped into her first costume at her niece’s birthday party.

“I was a ballerina,” she says. “It was literally 104 degrees out, and I was like, ‘I am putting the tights on and I am going to be a ballerina and there’s nothing anyone can do about it right now.'”

While stylish Stefani goes glam by default, her sons with ex Gavin RossdaleKingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 20 months — are big on the gory looks this year.

Gavin Rossdale is a man on the run.

Becoming a dad again has been an exhilarating experience for the British rocker, but with his new album and busy touring schedule, he says there aren’t enough hours in the day.

“I am touring now and about to begin another world tour in February,” Rossdale, 49, told PEOPLE during the Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic gala at Florida’s Boca Raton Resort & Club on Saturday night. “I hate to be away from my boys. I really miss them.”

The Bush frontman said he loves to watch his older sons Kingston, 8½, and Zuma, 6, dote on their baby brotherApollo, 9 months.

“Apollo is so small that the older brothers love to protect him,” Rossdale said. “They were very happy when he was born. They just love him. There is no jealousy because they really care about him.”

Now that’s modern parenting.

Gavin Rossdale learned wife Gwen Stefani was pregnant with their third child, now 6-month-old Apollo Bowie Flynn, via email, the rocker revealed to Howard Stern on Tuesday.

“The title was in capitals, ‘LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO ME NOW.’ I was like, ‘What is this?'” he jokes. “My blood pressure went through the roof, and I opened the email and it was [a picture of] the pregnancy stick.”

At the time, the Bush frontman was on tour — a bittersweet sacrifice for Rossdale, also dad to Zuma Nesta Rock, 6, and Kingston James McGregor, 8, with Stefani.

“The hardest thing about traveling now is the pain of missing my kids,” Rossdale tells the shock jock, adding that Apollo was conceived on Father’s Day 2013 — one of the few days he was home.

“Last year, I did 210 shows, so I figured, quite simply, as a dad, that’s 210 times I didn’t put them to sleep.”

Gwen Stefani Body After Baby

There’s No Doubt about it: Gwen Stefani is one of Hollywood’s most stylish moms.

And like every smart fashionista, she knows there’s no shame in repeating outfits.

That’s why we weren’t surprised when Stefani, 44, stepped out on April 13 and April 14 in sky-high heels paired with the black version of the HATCH Collection jumpsuit she wore while pregnant with son Apollo Bowie Flynn.

The new mom, who welcomed her little boy on Feb. 28, first wore the denim version with black booties last November.

Now that’s what we call versatile maternity wear.

Also not surprising? Stefani rocking out during a surprise performance with Pharrell Williams at Coachella the same weekend — her first public appearance since giving birth.

Hey, baby: Gwen Stefani is having another boy!

The No Doubt frontwoman and her husband, musician Gavin Rossdale, are expecting their third son, Stefani announced Friday on Instagram.

“I was ready to hand over the crown. But I guess I am still queen of the house. #itsaboy #surroundedbyboys” she writes.

The couple — who have been married for 11 years and together for 16 — are already parents to sons Kingston James McGregor, 7½, and Zuma Nesta Rock, 5.

Despite being happy with her two kids, Stefani, 44, has hinted that she once hoped for a third child, although ultimately her dreams didn’t unfold as planned — until now.

“I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out,” she told Marie Claire in September 2012.
