(Newser) – Fame came years ago for Susan Boyle. Love took a little longer to arrive. In an interview with the Sun picked up by the Daily Mail, the singer reveals that she has her first boyfriend. Though "I don't want to say any more about who he is right now as that would be unfair on him," here's what she reveals: He's around her age (53), he's an American doctor, and the two met while she was on a US tour earlier this year—they were both staying in the same hotel and shared a "romantic" dinner.

"It's very early days so we'll see what happens," she says, adding that she has invited him to visit her in her native Scotland. The Mail notes that Boyle, of Britain's Got Talent fame, "once admitted she had never been kissed." Boyle's rep confirmed her quotes to People. The Mail notes that Boyle was recently diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.
