“I’m so happy. I took two years to really recover from my marriage and I really needed to get to a place where I felt… in my own power as a single woman, feeling strong, running my own life without depending on anybody or anybody telling me what to do or having to care for somebody,” Hadid told Us Weekly in a new interview. “And it was a year two years, but I’m really excited to be back in love. There’s nothing better than feeling in love, and with somebody who is a great person, a great human being, who is not in his industry, that is very private… it’s a good feeling.”

But Hadid isn’t revealing who her new beau is just yet.
“It’s something that I would love to keep for myself as long as I can,” she explained. But she did say that their relationship is a fresh one.
“It’s relatively new,” she said, adding that they hang out “just, you know, sitting in front of the fire, just talking, listening to music … I’m so into the simple things of life today. I don’t want any jewelry, I don’t want any houses, I don’t want anything crazy. I just want intimacy with a good human being who has my back.”
Hadid isn’t the only one moving on. Her ex, Foster, has been linked to singer Katharine McPhee for months now. If anyone deserves this kind of happiness, it’s Hadid, one of our favorite Real Housewives of all time.
