Sophia Bush, the beloved actress known for her role in 'One Tree Hill,' has taken to Glamour's April cover to share her heartfelt journey towards self-acceptance and love. Following her divorce from Grant Hughes, Bush finds love again with former soccer player Ashlyn Harris.

In a candid essay and Instagram reflections inspired by poet Maggie Smith, Bush talks about her personal evolution, her new relationship, and how she's finally breathing easy.

A new life in love

Sophia Bush, the star we've adored since her "One Tree Hill" days, is baring it all in a candid new essay for 'Glamour,' and we can't help but hang on to every word! At 41, she's diving deep into the waves of change, from her split with Grant Hughes to her blooming romance with soccer sensation Ashlyn Harris. It's a tale of love, loss, and finding oneself amidst the chaos of life.

Bush's journey hasn't been a walk in the park. Her marriage to Hughes crumbled as she faced health challenges during her stint on the West End’s '2:22: A Ghost Story.'

But as one door closed, another opened. Enter Ashlyn Harris, 38, the dazzling former soccer player, stepping into Bush's life just when she needed it most. Their connection? Instantaneous. A four-hour dinner date marked the beginning of something magical, something Bush describes as "one of the most surreal experiences."

Reflecting on her personal growth, Bush shares a poignant moment of realization, inspired by poet Maggie Smith. She feels reborn, celebrating what feels like her "very first birthday." It's a story of self-discovery, of carrying and embracing all versions of oneself through life's journey.

Bush's words resonate with anyone who's ever felt lost, then found themselves again. "I really love who I am, at this age, and in this moment," she declares, and we can't help but feel inspired.

Fast forward to the 2024 White House Correspondents' Dinner, and Bush and Harris are stepping out together, making their red carpet debut as a couple. It's official, and it's beautiful. They're not just surviving; they're thriving, showing the world that it's never too late for new beginnings.

Sophia Bush's story is more than a celebrity tell-all.

"I feel like last summer I had my very first birthday. My own. And last summer Maggie Smith’s words helped me begin to understand why. From afar, she helped me put myself back together."

"She said: ‘How I picture it: We are all nesting dolls, carrying the earlier iterations of ourselves inside. We carry the past inside us. We take ourselves— all of our selves —wherever we go. Inside forty-something me is the woman I was in my thirties, the woman I was in my twenties, the teenager I was, the child I was… I still carry these versions of myself. It’s a kind of reincarnation without death: all these different lives we get to live in this one body, as ourselves,’" the 'One Tree Hill' alum shared.

It's a beacon of hope, a reminder that it's okay to fall apart because putting yourself back together is where the real magic happens. In her own words, "We are all in this together. Walking each other home. Here is to the becoming."
