She explained to People: "Alexander’s got diamond teeth, tattoos, white hair, and he’s way younger. He’s a beautiful man. Also, I think it’s fun to be interested in somebody else’s love life!"

Cher revealed that she fell in love with A.E. over text - something she'd vowed not to do - after she met him "for about 15 minutes" at Paris Fashion Week a year ago, and was stunned to find a mutual friend gave her soon-to-be beau her phone number.

"It was really shocking, because people just don’t give out my number. I had been telling all my friends, 'We’re too old to go out with really younger men, and I will never fall in love on text.' So I did what I said not to do!", she joked.

Discussing why she threw caution to the wind with A.E. and went against her own rules, she revealed it was down to him being "just so special". Awww.

While some fans have questioned how long their relationship will last, Cher hasn't buried her own head in the sand about the reality of dating with such a huge age gap either.

"No matter what happens, I love being with him. He makes me laugh, and we have fun," she says. "What I learned is that it’s never too late.

"If you wrote out all the statistics, you would go, 'Well, this is doomed.' But we’ve been together a year, and if it was just a year, it would’ve been worth it. I’ve had the best time."

She also revealed that she doesn't dwell on whether or not it will last, instead choosing to live in the moment and enjoy what they have right now.

"If you have happiness, you can’t think about how long it’s going to last," she advised. "You have to think about 'How does it feel?' and live in the moment."

As well as getting on well in their personal lives, Cher has even got A.E. involved in her professional life too, as he has produced a track on her new album.

Cher will be releasing her first-ever Christmas album of her stellar career, and A.E. helped to produce the track 'Drop Top Sleigh Ride' as well as the lead single 'DJ Play A Christmas Song'.
