Gwen and Apollo gave their best 'blue steel' look

Despite both watching from the sidelines, the exes were not pictured sitting together or having any interaction, with Gwen perched on a bench while Gavin paced up and down the track behind her.

Gavin and Gwen split in 2015 after 13 years of marriage and 20 years of dating. Alongside Apollo, they also share sons Kingston, 15, and Zuma, 12.

While Gavin is believed to be single, Gwen tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend Blake earlier this month.

Gwen and Blake met while acting as judges on NBC show The Voice, and they said 'I do' in front of their closest family members at Blake's stunning Oklahoma ranch, where the couple got engaged in October 2020.

Following their nuptials, Gavin posted a poignant caption alongside a photo of himself at the water's edge and looking directly at the camera. He wrote: "May your love be ocean sized," along with a black heart and a nod to the man behind the camera, Brian Kaminkski.

Gavin's fans rushed to support him and wrote: "LOVE YOOOUUUU!!!" and posted strings of love-heart emojis.
