Cher, 76, and her fiancé Alexander Edwards, 36, are painting the town red as the pop diva proudly flashes her new diamond engagement ring as they step out for dinner at Avra in Beverly Hills on Thursday night. The couple couldn’t help but share a kiss, as the paparazzi insisted they do so during their stroll inside the restaurant.
Cher appears to confirm her engagement to Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards
The Stuck on You actress wore an all-black ensemble of high-waisted, wide-leg trousers, a black top, and an ankle-length blazer trench while smiling and flashing her expensive ring, whereas her now alleged fiance, Edwards, wore a black trench paired with blue jeans and black shoes. The couple was seen leaving hand in hand, looking happier than ever.
The couple appears to be enjoying their ongoing romance. Last year on Christmas Day, she tweeted about the jewelry Edwards had given her, which sparked engagement rumors. The Grammy winner later explained to her fans that she shared the image because Edwards’ “nails are so cool,” referring to his black manicure with green flame deets.
How long have Cher and Alexander Edwards been dating?
The couple had their fair share of ups and downs. While some fans were overjoyed by their engagement rumors, others expressed mixed emotions about the news. The 40-year age gap between the two also drew criticism for the music legend. Cher, in her typical style, responded on Twitter with a series of tweets that seemed to imply that the age difference didn’t bother her.
Edwards has dated many celebrities in the music industry, so he is no stranger to drawing attention. He previously had a three-year relationship with famous American model Amber Rose, which he ended in August 2021. While he was accused of cheating on her, many other names in the industry were also linked to him in the media at the time.
Cher opened up about how she met her fiance
Cher began tweeting about Edwards last November, sharing heart emojis and photos of him with her followers. That same month, they were photographed holding hands in Los Angeles. The couple reportedly met during Paris Fashion Week in September.
Later, on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the Good Times actress addressed their relationship’s age gap. She said,
“On paper, it seems ridiculous, but in real life, we get along great,” she stated. “He’s fabulous, and I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve. But he’s very nice and very smart. He’s very talented and funny, and I think he’s quite attractive.”
Since going public with Edwards in November, the Queen of Pop has defended their relationship several times. Fans are still wondering if the couple is getting married because Cher has yet to openly confirm or deny that Edwards proposed.
