Chaz Bono reportedly has a new girlfriend, former child star Shara Blue Mathes.

Cher's transgender son, 49, is head over heels for Mathes, also 49, who appeared in Jason Bateman's 1984 sitcom, It's Your Move, according to the Daily Mail.

Also, Bono's famous mother, 72, approves of the hot romance, a source said.

Mathes is a former drug addict and divorced mother-of-one, as the Daily Mail reported.

Bono took Mathes on a romantic getaway to Adelaide, Australia in October 2018 to see Cher at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, where she was performing her "Here We Go Again Tour."

The loving two have also seen "The Cher Show," which depicts the show business legend's life with Bono's father Sonny, in New York together.

Mathes captioned a photo she posted with Bono with the musical's props on January 7, 2019, "Backstage in his Mom and Dad's bed, oh my?!!!"

Bono previously was in a long-term relationship with girlfriend Jennifer Elia.

But they split up in 2011, and Bono has sighed, "I seem to repel women I am attracted to."


Sources have told DailyMailTV that Bono and Mathes have a lot in common, as they both grew up in the entertainment industry and suffered from drug addiction.

Mathes has quit acting and now works for the homeless charity Housing Works in Los Angeles, California. She has written about her own drug addiction on Facebook.

On December 30, 2018, while wishing her son Cooper a happy 18th birthday, Mathes noted, "I thank God for my family who took over for me when my addiction rendered me powerless of my life and choices.

"You never had to see me on drugs and my Mom, Dad and brother loved you all they possibly could until I was healthy again.

"Earning my way back into your life was hard work."

Bono, who has battled weight problems, wrote in his book Transition: The Story Of How I Became A Man that he'd once been addicted to prescription opiates.

But both Bono and his new lady are now clean, sober, and happy together!
