Cher and her lover Alexander “AE” Edwards are ringing in the new year together.
The 76-year-old legendary singer was beaming as she accompanied her boyfriend to an event over the weekend.
She posted a picture of Edwards kissing her on the cheek on Twitter with the remark, “Happy New Year, Daddy.”
Cher prominently displayed her new diamond engagement ring in the photo, which recently generated engagement rumours after the singer shared it on social media over the holidays and said it was a present from Edwards.
She captioned the image from Christmas Day, “THERE R NO WORDS.”
After receiving numerous inquiries from followers over the image, Cher said, “I uploaded this because his nails are so cool.”
When they were pictured holding hands in Los Angeles in November 2022, the Grammy winner and music producer, both 36, first fuelled dating speculations.
Edwards dated Amber Rose before Cher, with whom he has a son named Slash. After three years of dating, the two decided to call it quits in August 2021 after Rose accused Edwards of having extramarital affairs with at least 12 other women.
From 1964 until 1975, Cher was married to the late Sonny Bono, and from 1975 to 1979, she was wed to the late Gregg Allman. She has experience dating younger men; in the 1980s, she dated a number of men who were decades her junior, including Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise, and Rob Camilletti.
Cher admitted to PEOPLE in 2021 that she would have never gone on a date if she hadn’t hung out with younger guys. “Older women didn’t intimidate younger males. However, older males in my age group weren’t having it.”
