Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been happily moving forward in their relationship since they began dating in the fall of 2015.

Now it appears as though the rocker chick’s ex-husband is doing the same with his significant other.

Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, who was married to Gwen for nearly 13 years, confirmed on Instagram that he is dating German model Sophia Thomalla.

According to “People” magazine, the 51-year-old British singer posted a photo of himself with his 27-year-old girlfriend on July 30. The picture, which you can see in the Instagram shot below, features the duo together with luggage strapped to their backs. They smile happily, while standing in close proximity to each other in front of a private airplane.

“Having fun in #Reno,” Gavin captioned, alongside the image that has since been taken down from his own Instagram page.

The photo originally posted to Gavin’s page is his first public claim of a relationship since his 2015 split from Gwen.

However, fans began to speculate that he and Sophia were romantically involved with each other after they were spotted kissing in London in April. At the time, a source told “People,” “They’re friends, introduced by a mutual friend.”

Although it seems like love is in the air for Gavin, his weekend trip wasn’t all about romance. He was actually traveling to play a show with his band, Bush. The three sons he shares with Gwen, Kingston, 11, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 3, accompanied their dad on one of his recent tour stops in Los Angeles.
