Gwen Stefani’s Ex Debuts His New Girlfriend & Fans Are Stunned as She Looks Like ‘Gwen’s Twin’

In a recent Instagram post, Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani’s former husband, introduced his new girlfriend to the public. Fans were astonished by the striking resemblance between her and Stefani.

The beloved “No Doubt” vocalist, Gwen Stefani, broke up with Gavin Rossdale, the lead singer of Bush, nine years ago. Life moved on, but Rossdale didn’t — recently, he posted a picture on Instagram with his new girlfriend that made fans question. His new girlfriend is a “clone” of his ex-wife.

Fans were quick with their comments, ranging from amused to confused. “She looks like a younger version of Gwen,” one fan wrote. Another added, “He’s got another Gwen.” “Gwen’s twin,” a user agreed.

Sharp cheekbones? Platinum blond hair? It all checks out when you look at two women side by side. Even their eye shape and iconic up-do hairstyle are the same. “For 2 seconds there, I thought that was Gwen lol. He certainly has a type,” commented a fan.

We can’t blame the fans for not being able to tell those women apart. When you compare them side by side, it’s even more uncanny how similar they look. Despite their age difference, someone might mistake them for sisters or even twins.

Someone might describe it as ‘having a type,’ but Rossdale definitely has a soft spot for singers. His new girlfriend Xhoana is an LA-based singer-songwriter from Albania. After facing the challenges of immigration and adaptation, Xhoana has carved out her own niche in the music industry. However, users were not so happy to see her in the picture.

“I really thought that was Gwen, co-parent style….but then I realized that is a wish version of Gwen…” one commented. With Xhoana on the left and Gwen Stefani on the right, it’s hard to guess which one is which.

The resemblance can be seen not only in their looks but also in their styles. With hair updos, bright red lipstick, and bold clothing choices, their similarities almost seem intentional.

It’s easy to understand fans’ confusion, especially since Stefani and Rossdale are still close due to their kids. They’ve publicly shared their co-parenting experiences, so it might as well have been Stefani herself in the picture that Rossdale shared, considering they are still in contact.

Shared parenting is happening, but not publicly. Stefani and Rossdale have managed their post-divorce relationship with a focus on their three children: Kingston, 17, Zuma, 15, and Apollo, 10.

Together, they said in a statement, “While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment.”

Rossdale himself has spoken about the importance of putting the children first, emphasizing how their shared parenting approach allows their kids to experience “two opposing ways of life.”

“It really is about putting the children first. That’s how it works, really. I can run my kids autonomously, which is good. When they come around me they know the drills. What’s interesting for them, and what I think is best for my kids, is that they get the chance to see two opposing ways of life—diametrically opposed systems,” he said.

Even though the story is in the past now and the ending seems nice, some mysteries will forever surround the breakup. In an interview, Gwen assured the public that almost nobody knows the specifics about what happened between her and Gavin Rossdale.

“Nobody except for my parents, the people involved, and whoever they told. Nobody would believe it if I could really say what happened. I went through months and months of torture,” said the singer, and kept the rest of the story to herself.

The details around their breakup remain unclear, but Rossdale’s new love chapter is now open for all to see. History has a curious way of repeating itself, and as the singer dives into a new relationship with Xhoana, it remains to be seen if the resemblances in their appearances with Gwen Stefani will mirror the similarities in their love stories.
