Daniel Bedingfield is best known for tracks including Gotta Get Thru This, but the singer-songwriter hasn’t been as visible in the industry in recent years – with some fans surprised by his new look
Daniel Bedingfield left fans swooning over a recent photo that he posted on social media, with some suggesting that he’s “aged like fine wine” since the peak of his career.
The singer, now 42, is best known for a handful of chart-topping singles released in the early 2000s, including his debut Gotta Get Thru This and later If You’re Not the One.
Some fans of the musician – who is the older brother of fellow singer Natasha Bedingfield, 40 – have said he looks quite different now though, after he shared a new photo.
It shows the Brit Award winner looking at the camera with his rugged beard and a hint of chest hair on show, with Daniel having said it was taken by photographer Lance Reis.
He had shared it with his 16,000 followers on Instagram a few days ago, with the post having featured a caption about him “loving the strength returning to [his] heart finally.”
Daniel said that he was now “free,” with him referencing the Covid-19 pandemic, recent political events and seemingly being “stuck” abroad in the caption of the social media post.
Fans responded to the post in the comments section with much praise for the singer, with them describing him as “handsome,” “gorgeous as ever,” “fit” and “mighty fine”.
