Anytime we think of Bush lead singer Gavin Rossdale, we always seem to go back to our childhood, making us remember belting out the lyrics to songs like "Glycerine", "Machinehead" and "Everything Zen". Those were the days, weren't they? Mid-90s, nothing but good times going on, with very few cares in the world.
While we adored Rossdale and the tunes he and his band put out there for us to enjoy, we were also pretty jealous of the then 20-or-30-something Gavin's choice of women, as he was able to date — and eventually — wed Gwen Stefani, the lead singer of fellow rock band No Doubt at the time.
Although the marriage eventually ended in 2016 between the two singers after 13 years together, Gavin Rossdale has rebounded a year later — and, yes, we're still super jealous about who the guy was able to snag.
That's because the 51-year-old Gavin didn't just find himself another attractive woman to walk around with, but a 27-year-old model named Sophia Thomalla — who's absolutely stunning, guys!
Whether because of jealousy or something else, people haven't exactly taken to the relationship too kindly, with Sophia being a year younger than Rossdale's eldest daughter, Daisy Lowe, who's 28 years old.
But isn't this why Gavin's a rockstar who's so cool? Yes, yes it is.
After both Gavin Rossdale and Sophia Thomalla were spotted kissing in London earlier this year, rumors began swirling until the singer recently took to social media and posted a picture of the pair to all but confirm the relationship now.
Althought Rossdale has a new, sexy lady in his life, we don't necessarily expect him to rush into anything and settle down right away, as he talked about the pain his divorce gave him in a revealing interview with London's The Sunday Times last October, saying this:
"[Divorce] was completely opposite to what I wanted," Gavin said. "But here we are. Apart from death, I think divorce is one of the hardest, most painful things to go through."
He added, "I have to deal with reality. You can't not have regrets and be human at the same time. There are lots of scenarios [I'd like to change].... We had 20 years together and that in itself is pretty incredible. It's a lifetime. It was a lovely 20 years and we have three amazing children. There were lots of positives, and with time they'll become more and more obvious."
We feel for the guy, because that stuff's never easy. The good news? Gavin Rossdale's back with another woman who's sexy, talented and (probably) keeps him young — so that's something we admire about Sophia Thomalla.
