Playful papa! Gavin Rossdale makes silly faces for his young son Apollo as the pair grab lunch in Beverly Hills

He recently said he holds nothing but respect for ex-wife Gwen Stefani as the former couple both have their kids' best 'interest at heart.'

And Gavin Rossdale showed he was ever the doting dad while out for lunch with his youngest son Zuma in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

The Bush rocker, 51, made silly faces for his adorable long-haired celebrity tot, who turns three-years-old next Tuesday.

The Voice UK judge was also joined by a friend and the family Pomeranian for their afternoon outing.

He donned a vintage graphic tee with black jacket and chocolate brown trousers with hanging suspenders.

At one point the hunky British musician and actor wore a black beanie cap and kept concealed behind dark shades.

Little Apollo looked precious in red and black checkered pants with a printed gray sweatshirt as his father cradled him in his arms. 

Gwen, 47, and Gavin - who also share Kingston, 10, and Zuma, eight - met in 1995 when No Doubt and Bush were on tour and the couple married in 2002.  

The former couple finalized their divorce settlement last April after a judge approved the split of assets.

Stefani got to keep full control over her fashion lines L.A.M.B and Harajuku Lovers and also keeps all rights to her music with No Doubt as Gavin gets to keep all his music with Bush. 

Meanwhile, Gavin recently revealed he would never speak ill of ex-wife, who is currently dating Blake Shelton, 40.

He admitted his split from the fellow Voice coach in August 2015 after 13 years of marriage inspired much of his band's forthcoming album, Black and White Rainbows, but said there is no drama between them.

He told Entertainment Tonight: '[Respecting Gwen] comes real natural to me. She's amazing, so why would I think anything less?

'[The divorce] obviously informs the record. It's hard to separate yourself from the most monumental thing that happens in your life if you're an artist.'

Asked what he appreciates most about the No Doubt hit-maker, he added: 'Just how much she loves [the kids]. We both have the same interest at heart. [Our kids'] happiness. It's really simple.'
