Yolanda Hadid’s new modeling competition show isn’t the only thing bringing a little excitement to her life. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum just revealed that she has a new man in her life. And it sounds like things are going very well.

Sitting down for a chat on TheWendy WilliamsShow, the 53-year-old explained that she’s been single for almost two-and-a-half years now, and that she needed that time to “heal” (presumably from both the end of her marriage to David Foster and her battle with Lyme disease). She also said that she used that time to “step into” her “own power as a single woman.”

Now, though, she’s stepping into something else — a new relationship. “I just met an amazing man,” she told Williams, smiling. “And I’m very much in love.”

After a few cheers from the crowd, the host asked about the new guy’s age, to which Hadid replied, “He’s actually younger than me…” But the age difference between them is just a few months.

Williams tried to get more details out of her guest, but Hadid would only say, “No, he’s a very private person. He’s a businessman. And that’s just the way I like it.”

While it doesn’t sound like her new man will be making many (if any) appearances on Making a Model With Yolanda Hadid when it debuts on Lifetime January 11 at 10pm ET, we’ll still keep our fingers crossed for a cameo, so we can get a glimpse at the love in Hadid’s life.
