Sofia Richie is ''so happy'' in her relationship with Scott Disick.

The 20-year-old model has been romancing the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who has Mason, eight, Penelope, six, and Reign, three, with his former partner Kourtney Kardashian - for over a year, and has said the pair are ''very lovey dovey'' and in a great place together.

She said: ''We are very happy, very lovey dovey. We are best friends and that is mainly the strongest connection we have. We have always had that best friend connection and from there it has really worked out. I am so happy.''

Earlier this year the pair were reported to have hit a bump in their relationship and parted ways - which they later denied, saying they had never split up - and Sofia admits she does her best to block out the ''false'' reports.

The daughter of music legend Lionel Richie told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: ''Everything is so false. I don't read it because I just get really angry. It's hard to fully avoid it, but I get a good laugh too.''

Sofia's comments come after it was recently claimed that 35-year-old Scott would ''get back together'' with Kourtney ''in a heartbeat'', following her split from toy boy lover Younes Bendjima.

An insider said: ''[Scott would] get back together with Kourtney in a heartbeat. Sofia makes him happy but they are also very on and off. It wouldn't be surprising if Scott tried to pursue things again with Kourtney down the line.''

But things might not turn out the way Scott wants, as Kourtney is reportedly ''happy being single'' for the time being.

A second source added: ''Kourtney is doing great. She isn't seeing Younes. After all the drama with Scott over the years, she wasn't going to put up with any drama from Younes. She cut him off. She is focused on her kids and herself. [She is] happy being single for now.''
