Cher has caused speculation that she is engaged to her boyfriend, Alexander Edwards, after posting a photo on Twitter of a large diamond ring on Christmas Day. The 76-year-old singer, who has been married twice before, showed her four million followers on the social media platform a stunning ring featuring a large teardrop-shaped diamond and smaller diamonds around the band.
She accompanied the picture with the caption, "There are no words. Alexander, AE." The ring was displayed in a black box held by Edwards, whose thumb could be seen in the photo with a green and black flame manicure.
Cher confirmed her relationship with the 36-year-old music producer in November, saying that he treats her "like a queen" and that "love doesn't know math." While she did not confirm whether the couple is engaged, fans were quick to congratulate them and send their well wishes.
"OMG did he propose to you!? Mama lovely," one person wrote, while another commented, "A beautiful ring for a beautiful woman! Merry Christmas!" In a follow-up tweet, however, Cher stirred up confusion after posting the same photograph of the ring but with the caption, "I posted this cause his nails are so cool." One fan joked, "So should I cancel the order for the dress I was gonna wear to the wedding or..?" Another added, "Spill the tea, are you getting married or no, we need to know!"
Cher has previously been married to her singing partner Sonny Bono from 1964 to 1975 and to singer Gregg Allman from 1975 to 1979.
Last month, she revealed that she and Edwards "kiss like teenagers" after sharing a photograph of him shirtless on social media. She described the music executive, who works at Universal Music Group, as "kind, smart [and] hilarious." In an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show in early December, Cher opened up about her new relationship and admitted that it may appear "kind of ridiculous… on paper." She added, "But in real life, we get along great.
He's fabulous. And I don't give men qualities that they don't deserve." While it remains unclear whether Cher and Edwards are indeed engaged, fans are eagerly awaiting any updates on the status of their relationship. The couple's age difference of 40 years has been a topic of conversation, but Cher has previously stated that she doesn't care what others think and is happy with Edwards.
"Love doesn't know math," she said. "It doesn't have to make sense." Regardless of whether they are engaged or not, it seems that Cher and Edwards are happy together and are enjoying their time as a couple.
