Singing sensation Susan Boyle has her first boyfriend at the age of 53 and he’s a Connecticut doctor she met on her recent U.S. tour. The local physician might soon visit her in Scotland.
"That's the plan," Boyle's spokeswoman, Nicola Phillips, said on Monday.
The two met at a hotel in Clearwater, Florida, according to Phillips, who said Boyle is "definitely" happy to have met someone.
The two decided to begin a relationship after a romantic dinner in which the doctor behaved as a "perfect gentleman," E! Online reports, citing an interview with the Sun.
Boyle was diagnosed last year with Asperger's syndrome, and had learning disabilities as a child.
The church volunteer from a small Scottish town became a global sensation when she sang the "Les Miserables" number "I Dreamed a Dream" on TV contest "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009.
She said at the time she had never been kissed.
