Gwen Stefani was MIA as boyfriend Blake Shelton hosted the Kids' Choice Awards on Nickelodeon on Saturday -- but sent some incredibly adorable backup instead.
The No Doubt singer traveled to Japan for work, but two of her children with ex Gavin Rossdale attended the awards show in her place.
Before the ceremony kicked off, Gwen took to Twitter to share a pic of son Zuma, 7, with two of his friends getting ready to go inside The Forum. She simply captioned the shot, "What's up." In the pic, Zuma looks super cute with glasses, a studded Diesel denim jacket and cowboy boots.
Stefani was apparently having a hard time streaming the show overseas, sharing her frustration on Twitter all night.
