If her social media post is anything to go by, Cher might be ready to sing I Got You, Babe to a new man.

Posting an utterly dazzling photo of a pear shaped diamond ring, Cher posted the snap with the caption “THERE R NO WORDS. ALEXANDER A.E.[sic]”.

Whether it’s a diamond ring or a ring with diamonds (and we know the importance in clarifying that!), Cher definitely deserves a bit of sparkle.

The showbiz legend confirmed her mom had passed away with a heartbreaking message on Twitter.

At the time, details were scarce, but Cher has since gone on to reveal more about her mom, Georgia Holt’s, final days.

“She was in so much pain,” tweeted Cher in the days that followed.

Her candid tweet continued with her declaring that “The Woman Who Was MY KICK A** MOM” had finally passed away.

Cher was posting to social media late at night, between 3am and 4am in Malibu, where she resides, suggesting she was struggling to sleep amid her grief.

But there might be reason for the If I Could Turn Back Time star to celebrate, as she hints at a possible engagement to the man she’s dating.

Cher’s new man is 40 years her junior, but that isn’t anything new for the Believe singer, who once dated Val Kilmer, a man 13 years younger.

So, just who is he and is Cher engaged?

Who is Alexander Edwards, the man Cher is dating?

The Oscar winning actress is currently dating Alexander Edwards, a 36-year-old rapper and music executive for Universal Music Group.

Alexander has previously dated Amber Rose, the TV personality who once dated Kanye West.

“On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous,” Cher admitted on The Kelly Clarkson Show recently when quizzed about her love life. “But in real life, we get along great. He’s fabulous. And I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve.”

Addressing the age gap, Cher, in typically admirable Cher fashion, didn’t feel the need to explain it away.

She said that although she’s had a couple boyfriends who were “hovering around” her age, older men just don’t like her that much.

“Younger men don’t care if you’re funny or outrageous and wanna do stupid things, and you have a strong personality,” she explained. “I mean, I’m not giving up my personality for anybody, okay?”

It’s reported that the two first met at Paris Fashion Week in September and were later spotted holding hands in November of this year.

Cher hasn’t shied away from shouting about her new relationship, confronting any doubters regarding their 40 year age gap by writing on social media “LOVE DOESN’T KNOW MATH.”

While Cher hasn’t confirmed whether the ring signals wedding bells in the future, it would mark the singer’s third trip down the aisle.

She was first married to Sonny Bono between 1945 and 1975, and later married Gregg Allman between 1975 and 1979.
