London, Jan 15 (Agencies): 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.
