On Christmas day, the pop icon, 76 shared a photo of a dazzling, engagement-like diamond ring on Twitter and expressed that it was a gift from her boyfriend, Alexander “AE” Edwards.
“THERE R NO WORDS,” she wrote in the caption.
The photo quickly garnered buzz across social media about the couple’s engagement status.
The Grammy winner and music executive, 36, first began making headlines when they were photographed holding hands on Nov. 2 in Los Angeles and were seen in matching all-black outfits outside L.A. hotspots earlier that week.
Following the outing, Cher was quick to confirm that the two are in a relationship and defended their 40-year age gap.
She went on to refer to a lesson she learned from Sogyal Rinpoche, the late Tibetan Buddhist teacher and best-selling author who died in 2019, adding, “Rinpoche told me, ‘Some people meet, others recognize.”
The “Believe” songstress also shared a photo of Edwards, simply writing “Alexander ❤️” and, when asked if it was her new man, responded with a “?” emoji.
Before Edwards, Cher married Sonny Bono from 1964 to 1975 and Gregg Allman from 1975 to 1979. In the 1980s, she dated several men that were decades her junior, including Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise, and Rob Camilletti.
She explained her reasoning behind dating younger men in an appearance on the Kelly Clarkson Show earlier in December, telling the host that she would’ve “never had a date” had she just stuck to older guys.
