London: Singer Gavin Rossdale finds it "painful" when he is away from his singer-wife Gwen Stefani.
The 46-year-old, who is currently on tour, admits the worse thing about the trip is not to wake up next to 42-year-old Stefani.
"It`s painful to be away from her, but who has a life without pain? Any guy in a relationship should pinch themselves no matter who they`re with and I am no different with Gwen (Stefani)," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Rossdale as saying.
"It would be nice to wake up to Gwen every morning, but I haven`t seen her for a while so I`m waking up next to myself which isn`t as exciting to me," he added.
