He said earlier this week that his reputation makes it difficult for him to meet women.
But just days after his admission, Paul Gascoigne has stepped out with his new girlfriend - stunning blonde model Kelly Windsor. The 45-year-old footballer, known as Gazza, met 36-year-old model Kelly online, before the pair began exploring their relationship.

And on Friday night, the pair were seen enjoying a romantic meal together at an Italian restaurant before continuing the evening at Gazza's Bournemouth apartment.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: 'They looked like they were really enjoying their time together. They just appeared to be a happy couple on a romantic night out.'
In an interview with The Times last weekend, Gazza said he was struggling to put his past behind him and move on with a new woman.

Gazza said he was 'just friends' with a woman called Kelly, adding: 'We’re just friends. I’ve kept meself away from everything – it’s no use me being unhappy and being around someone making them unhappy.'
Gazza also said he found it difficult to get past his previous reptuation, following ex-wife Sheryl's accusations that he abused her in their divorce battle in 1998.
He said: 'I’ve got someone’s number, they’ve asked what’s your name, I say Paul Gascoigne. I wait, and I know what they’re going to do – they’re going to google it.

'Then I get, "You mean the footballer Paul Gascoigne?" Then it’s, "Sorry, the date’s off." '
Kelly, who looks slightly like Gazza's ex-wife Sheryl, is a British model based in New Zealand, whose profile on one modeling website describes her as a 'very professional, hard-working, bubbly person with extensive experience in TV presenting, acting and modeling.'
