Kerry Katona has confirmed she is in a serious relationship with Ryan Mahoney and says she is in "love" with the hunk.
The 38-year-old star has been rumoured to be back with her on/off boyfriend for several weeks and now, following photos emerging of them kissing and canoodling on vacation in Thailand, Kerry has revealed the pair are in a "settled" relationship and she couldn't be happier.
The former Atomic Kitten singer has praised Ryan for being a huge support to her and her children following the shock death of her ex-husband George Kay from a drugs overdose at the age of 39 in July.
Writing in her latest column for New! magazine, she said: "So the cat's out of the bag - yes I'm with Ryan Mahoney, and yes, I'm very happy.
"We're currently at the Chi Residence in Thailand with the kids, on my first holiday in three years, and we're having a wonderful time ... He's been a good friend to me and over the last few months we just decided to give it a go. He's been a godsend recently when I've needed him most. We're settled, committed, my kids love him and so do I."
