First Boyfriend At 53 For Susan Boyle!

Suzanne Robertson
The Scottish singer rocketed to world-wide fame when she appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2009.

Love is in the air! 

Singing sensation Susan Boyle earned instant fame after shocking the crowd and judges with her amazing voice on Britain's Got Talent. 

Now, at the age of 53, Boyle finally has her first boyfriend.

What's kept the world famous singer from love? Perhaps a recent diagnosis of Asperger's, a form of autism. "People with Asperger's do put a barrier up because they don't know how to trust people. I try not to. I want to let people in," she said. 

So who is the mysterious stranger that's captured her heart? 

"I don't want to say any more about who he is right now as that would be unfair on him," Boyle said in a sit-down with The Sun, an interview that was reported in the Daily Mail. "All I'll say is we are around the same age and he was a very nice guy." 

Boyle met the man, an American doctor, when they stayed in the same hotel. They enjoyed a romantic dinner, during which he was "the perfect gentleman". 

The Scottish singer's quotes were confirmed to PEOPLE magazine by her representative.  The U.S. tour for her sixth album – Hope – was a success and that she'll be back in 2015 to continue the sell-out show.
