Gavin Rossdale raised eyebrows on Nov. 6 when he was spotted out grabbing a coffee while still wearing his wedding ring from Gwen Stefani. The pair’s divorce is already finalized, but now we’ve learned why he’s still hanging on to the personal jewelry and the reason is quite touching!
Gavin Rossdale, 50, may no longer be married to Gwen Stefani, 46, but he’s still sporting the ultimate symbol of their former union. The Bush front man was photographed in Los Angeles still wearing his wedding ring, even though Gwen confirmed Nov. 4 that she is officially dating her The Voice co-star Blake Shelton, 39. But we’ve learned the super sweet reason why he’s not letting go of his wedding band, and it will make your heart melt!
“He wears it for the kids because it makes them feel good,” an insider shared with People magazine. Gwen and Gavin are parents to Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 20 months, and obviously they want their divorce to have as little impact on the kids as possible.

“There is an ongoing conversation with the boys to make sure they are as happy and comfortable as possible. To both Gwen and Gavin, the boys are their number one priority and concern,” and insider shared with the magazine last month, before news of Gwen and Blake’s relationship hit the headlines.
The couple’s sons may be a little bit confused by Gavin’s touching gesture, as Gwen has already introduced Blake to her kids! As we previously reported “Blake has met Gwen’s boys and apparently has won them over and is a big hit. Everyone knows that Blake is a big kid himself” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “For Gwen, it’s an added bonus. Watching how well he interacts with her children makes Blake that much more attractive to her,” our insider shared.
