The If I Could Turn Back Time hitmaker only confirmed her romance with music executive Alexander Edwards in November this year, tweeting a picture of him followed by a red heart emoji. If the pair are engaged, the marriage will be Cher's third.

Her first husband, Sonny Bono - with whom she shares a 53-year-old son, Chaz - died in 1998. The pair separated in 1974.

Shortly after her divorce, Cher married her second husband Gregg Allman. Greg was married to Cher between 1975 and 1979 and the pair had one child together, Elijah Blue Allman. Gregg sadly passed away at his home in Savannah, Georgia, after being diagnosed with hepatitis C in 1999 and undergoing a liver transplant in 2010.

At the time, Cher posted an emotional message on her Twitter page in honour of her former husband, which read: "I've tried… words are impossible Gui Gui. Forever, Chooch," beside a broken heart and kiss emoji.

The actress and singer wrote: "Mom is gone", just several months after she announced that her 96-year-old mother had been battling several health issues.
