Cher has defended the massive 40-year age gap between her and her new and much younger beau.

The 76-year-old singer is currently in a relationship with 36-year-old music producer Alexander Edwards.

Despite the 40-year age gap, Cher is not shying away from the “blossoming romance” and answered fans’ questions about the relationship along with a cheeky photo of Alex in his boxers.

“He’s 36 and in end he came after me. I’m the skittish one. We love each other …. LADIES NEVER GIVE UP. Must say he was different for me,” she wrote.

“He’s kind, smart, hilarious … and we (kiss emoji) like teenagers,” she responded to a question asking about her favourite quality about Alex.

“On paper this looks strange (even to ME) AE says love ️doesn’t know math,” Cher tweeted shortly after.

The pair sparked rumours earlier this month when they were seen holding hands outside the West Hollywood restaurant Craig’s where they met with rapper Tyga for dinner.

During the night, Alex was seen kissing Cher’s hand as they drove off together.

It was only days after the dinner that Cher confirmed the relationship on Twitter.
