Sophia Bush and her recent flame, soccer star Ashlyn Harris, have been spotted enjoying a beautiful date together. According to Page Six, the lovers went on a cozy double date with Stacy London and her girlfriend, Cat Yezbak, just a few weeks ago.
The foursome was seen at Chelsea Handler’s show at the Beacon Theater in NYC on Sept. 29.
According to a source from page six, the couple has already been nicknamed Bushlyn as they reported, Ashlyn snuck into the theater wearing a mask to join Stacy, Cat and Sophia. It wasn’t clear they were on a double date until Stacy moved over so Ashlyn could sit next to Sophia. When the lights dimmed for the opening act, Ashlyn removed her mask.
And although the source said there was no PDA, it was clear that Ashlyn and Sophia were cozy together, they added.
Stacy London first announced that she was dating cat for the first time in December 2019.
NOT THAT IT’S ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS BUT… I may as well address all the stuff I hear floating around out there, she wrote on Instagram.
2019 has been a crazy year for lots of reasons. This 1st year of coping with grief and a lot of unforeseen health issues was, at times, such a truly dark place to be. But as with most of life, there has been such incredible joy as well and the person most responsible for that is @catyezbak, who is my girlfriend and has been for over a year.
While for Sophia and Ashlyn as revealed earlier by various news outlets, the pair first got romantic while in the South of France at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival in June.
The two stars appeared together on a panel about branding, and according to the One Tree Hill alum’s Instagram, they had an absolutely amazing conversation at Cannes Lions today with these trailblazing women.
She continued in a social media post at the time, @stagwell hosted us for a panel where discussed the impact that deep, creative partnerships can make to challenge societal systems and narratives, and to uplift women in sports!
While at the festival, Bush, 41, and Harris, 37, both attended an intimate Spotify bash where Florence & the Machine performed, this was when a source revealed their new relationship to the public stating, It’s very new. They are definitely a couple.
Following the news of their romantic involvement in June, just a few weeks later in August, Bush filed for divorce from her second husband, Grant Hughes.
Their divorce comes just barely one year after their marriage. Sophia and Grant were friends for 10 years and bonded during COVID through their love of community service, a source close to the couple told the PEOPLE, the same day the actress submitted the filing for divorce. Adding that They continue to run their nonprofit together and remain good friends.
This news of the split has been linked to her romantic involvement with Ashlyn as the star and her husband posted loved-up tributes for their one-year wedding anniversary in June.
Today marks 365 days of calling you husband, the Chicago P.D. alum captioned a photo of the pair on their wedding day. Best decision of my life. It still feels just like this. Ecstatic. Running toward the future, grinning and laughing, together. I love you, my favorite. Happy Anniversary .
At the time, Hughes posted an equally sweet message, calling their first year of marriage full, beautiful, dynamic, exciting, [and] growth-filled. There are seven billion people on this planet. You are my favourite, he wrote.
It was also revealed that Harris also filed for divorce from her wife, fellow soccer star Ali Krieger, with whom she shares two young children, last month.
Court documents obtained by Page Six showed Harris submitted her petition on Sept. 19, stating that their union was irretrievably broken.
Although it appears the split is a fairly amicable one, some fans believe the development of an outside love interest as the cause of the breakup as the documents note that the estranged couple anticipate entering a settlement that will resolve all financial issues.
They also intend to sign a parenting plan, which will resolve all child custody-related issues. It additionally entails that they each attend a parenting class.
