Cheryl Cole has finally confirmed her relationship with “Dancing with the Stars” dancer Derek Hough by kissing him publicly at a New Year’s Eve party in South Africa.
Singer Cheryl Cole and professional dancer Derek Hough confirmed their relationship by welcoming the New Year with a passionate kiss.
The private couple is currently on a romantic holiday in South Africa.
A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Cheryl and Derek are together and don’t care who knows it. She wanted to spend New Year’s Eve with Derek because she sees her future with him. 2010 was the worst year of Cheryl’s life. But now she is looking forward to happier times with Derek.”
Cheryl divorced her soccer player husband Ashley Cole last year and also battled malaria, which she contracted during a trip to Africa. So hopefully this will be a much better year for the beauty.
Eyewitnesses at the New Year’s Eve party said, “It was so adorable to see Cheryl and Derek and how happy there were. If anyone didn’t believe they were a couple, the New Year’s Eve party proved they are. They only had eyes for each other and ignored everyone else.”
Cheryl, 27, is planning a move to Los Angeles this year after signing a deal to become a judge on “The X Factor”.
