The Believe singer, 76, is in a relationship with music producer Alexander Edwards, 36, and has played down the 40-year gap between them on several occasions.
With the pair spotted holding hands on date nights and sharing snaps on social media, Cher and Alexander look totally loved up.
Now the If I Could Turn Back Time icon has once again defended the age gap, telling those concerned: “We’re old”.
The star took to Twitter on Thursday where she shared a photo of a topless Alexander smiling at the camera, wearing just black shorts, and captioned it: “AE (Alexander Edwards) hanging out.”
While the comments section was mostly filled with fans offering words of support or general fangirling, some asked about the age gap.

To which Cher responded with a series of messages: ‘We’re happy’ and ‘we’re grown up’.
When asked by a fan what his favorite thing about Alexander is, the frontman replied: “He’s kind, he’s smart, he’s hilarious… and we [lips emoji] Like teenagers (sic).’
He later sent a separate message saying, “On paper, this looks weird (even [to] I).’
However, he added that Alexander says love “doesn’t know math”.
In another response to a fan seeking advice on getting closer to a younger man, Cher explained how her relationship with Alexander began, saying: “In the end, he came after me, until we met in the middle.”

“It’s consistent, I’m the Skittish.” We love each other… LADIES NEVER GIVE UP,” she wrote.
The icon previously gave her two cents on fans’ concerns that Cher might be ‘taking advantage’, writing sarcastically: ‘I wasn’t born yesterday.’
‘There are no guarantees. Every time you make a choice, you have an opportunity. I have always taken chances… I am WHO I am (sic).’
