London: Singer Peter Andre has confirmed his relationship with Spanish model Elen Rivas.

The 37-year-old singer, who split from his former wife Katie Price in May 2009, said he is happy with Rivas, reported Contactmusic.

"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`. We totally loved it and had a great night," said the `Mysterious Girl` hitmaker.

Andre, who has three children with Price including one son from the model`s previous relationship, insisted that they get on much better these days.

Speaking about a chance meeting with his former spouse, Andre 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!"

The Rivas, 35, has said she has a "permanent smile at the moment" since she met Peter.
