Damian Lewis put on a cosy display with his new girlfriend Alison Mosshart as they stepped out in New York on Friday.

The actor, 51, has embarked on a new romance with the American musician, 43, following the tragic death of his wife Helen McCrory to cancer in April 2021.

The new couple made another public appearance last week, just more than a month after they confirmed their relationship.

Damian kept it casual in wide-leg black trousers and a grey T-shirt, which he styled with a pair of white trainers.

He wore his rouge tresses in natural waves and shielded his eyes from the sunshine with a pair of silver square sunglasses.

The actor put on a cosy display with his new girlfriend, who was seen placing her hand on his chest and running her fingers through his hair during the outing.

Alison cut a vibrant figure in black skinny jeans and a T-shirt, which she wore underneath an orange patterned shirt.

She styled her ensemble with a pair of black trainers and orange oval sunglasses for the outing.

The singer swept her golden tresses up beneath a navy blue baseball cap and kept her essentials in a black handbag slung over one shoulder.

The couple both enjoyed cold beverages and it appeared that they had done a spot of shopping as Damian clutched a large black shopping bag.

They have made a number of public appearances together in recent days as they have been seen out-and-about exploring the Big Apple.

The couple are thought to have met through mutual friends while in London and have grown increasingly fond of one another, Mosshart’s mother Vivian, 76, told DailyMail.com.¬†

Speaking exclusively from her home in Florida, she said: ‘I don’t know how much flak I’m going to get for all of this but of course we are excited for her.¬†¬†

‘They have mutual friends. I don’t know exactly how they met but I’m fine with it. If she’s happy, we are happy. I’m yet to meet him but certainly I’d like to.’¬†

The pair were first photographed together in July at a swanky fundraising party for London’s National Gallery.

A fellow passenger, who spotted the pair travelling to the event by train, told The Mail on Sunday that the two looked ‘100 per cent romantically involved ‚Äď like they were on a hot date’.

They were seen again at the Serpentine Gallery’s annual summer party – one of the highlights of the British capital’s social season.

The pair were once more snapped at the British Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone, with Alison taking to Instagram afterwards to write: ‘The absolute thrill. I’m still floating‚Ķ at 200 miles per hour.’

They then confirmed their relationship during an appearance at private members’ club The House of KOKO’s summer party in July, during which Damian wore his wedding ring.

The couple were joined by The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince, the ex-husband of Kate Moss, as well as Ellie Goulding, film director Darren Strowger and singer Dionne Bromfield.

Alison, from Vero Beach, is best known as a lead vocalist for the rock bands The Kills and The Dead Weather. 

She got her start in music when she formed the pop-punk band Discount at the age of 17 alongside a few friends.

Discount went their separate ways in 2000 and she formed the band she would become most known for – The Kills – alongside British guitarist Hince in the same year.

Damian’s late wife, Peaky Blinders actress Helen, tragically died after a secret battle with breast cancer last year.

Following her death, he revealed how his late wife had urged him to find love again, telling him and their children that she wanted ‘Daddy to have lots of girlfriends’.

Damian said in a social media post: ‘She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air.’

In a moving eulogy, Damian further revealed how his late wife had urged him to find love again, telling him, their son Gulliver, 14, and daughter Manon, 15, not to dwell upon her passing.

‘Her generosity has extended to encouraging us three to live. Live fully, take opportunities, have adventures,’ he wrote.

‘She said to us from her bed, ‘I want Daddy to have girlfriends, lots of them, you must all love again, love isn’t possessive’.

‘But you know, Damian, try at least to get through the funeral without snogging someone.’
