Cher recently celebrated her anniversary with boyfriend Alexander Edwards.
The couple have been together a year, and Cher is totally in love with the music executive.
"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 said.
One year in, Cher and boyfriend Alexander “A.E.” Edwards are still going strong—so strong, in fact, that the relationship is making the iconic singer believe in love again.
The pair first met briefly in Paris last year, during Fashion Week, and then a mutual friend gave A.E. Cher’s number.
“It was really shocking, because people just don’t give out my number,” Cher told People in a new interview. “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!”
But Cher said she broke her rules for the music executive “because he’s just so special.” She admitted, “I hate when people say people are special, but lots of people say I’m special, so I can say that he’s special.”
The two made their red-carpet debut this March at Versace’s Fall 2023 show and attended various shows together this Fashion Month.
Cher, 77, noted in her talk that she’s aware of the criticism of and speculation about the relationship—particularly the age gap between herself and the 37-year-old A.E.—but said she’s “not surprised” and doesn’t care.
“No matter what happens, I love being with him. He makes me laugh, and we have fun. 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 said. “If you have happiness, you can’t think about how long it’s going to last. You have to think about How does it feel? and live in the moment.”
Cher is releasing her first-ever holiday album, Christmas, on October 20, and her boyfriend is the producer behind her new track “Drop Top Sleigh Ride.”
“He’s a great producer,” Cher said of A.E. “I let him do ‘Drop Top Sleigh.’ That’s a hard thing to do when you are in love with someone and then you say, ‘Okay, here, take this record and do what you want with it.’ But I had faith. And I was so thrilled.”
