Peter Andre has confirmed Spanish model Elen Rivas is his girlfriend and says they are ''happy'' together
Peter Andre is "happy" in his relationship with Elen Rivas.
The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer - who has been single since splitting with former wife Katie Price in May 2009 - says his romance with the Spanish model is going well, but he doesn't want to give too many details.
He said: "I can confirm that Elen Rivas and I are seeing each other, and everything is going well. I always said that when I found a girlfriend I would tell you all!
"I'm not going to speak about the relationship in detail - But I will say we're happy. We went out for dinner last week and then went to see 'Flashdance: The Musical'.
"The meal was terrific and 'Flashdance' is such a great show. We totally loved it and had a great night."
Despite animosity between Peter and Katie - who raise three children together, Junior, five, Princess Tiaamii, three, and eight-year-old Harvey, the former glamour model's son from an earlier relationship - when they first separated, the Australian singer insists they get on much better these days.
Speaking about a chance meeting with his former spouse over the festive period, he said: "I'm happy to say that it was all very civil between us. She was with the kids so we all had a little chat - and lots of cuddles with my kids of course - and then we got on with our shopping. No drama to report!"
Spanish-born Elen, 35, has said she has a "permanent smile at the moment" since she met Peter, 37.
