Nicole Scherzinger is in love with Grigor Dimitrov.

The 38-year-old singer has been dating the 25-year-old tennis player since July 2015, following his split from Maria Sharapova and says that she is head over heels for Grigor.

When asked if it's love, she told Fabulous magazine: ''Yeah, I hope so. I'm a very loving person. We've been together for quite some time now, so I'm just living in the moment and I'm happy.

''It's good for girls to be with nice guys. Respect the nice ones - they can win! He's so damn cute.''

Speaking about her ex-boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, she said: ''I think that we... wish each other well. In all honesty, it's in my past and I'm all about keeping the past in the past.''

While Nicole and Grigor both have busy careers, she hopes that he will come to visit her when she is in London for the 'X Factor'.

She said: ''He's obviously busy as he's got his own career, but hopefully he'll come and visit me. We both travel a lot, but it's nice when we are able to make time [for each other]. You appreciate it.

''It's good when you're both career-driven to have your own space to focus on your career and yourself.

''We have to be able to set love boundaries to keep our worth and our dignity. We too often allow things to happen and then find ourselves in a very vulnerable or weak place. I'm so happy - I'm proud of myself.''

Nicole also revealed she wants children in the future, but not yet.

She said: ''In time, not now, I'll definitely have a family. God only knows when that time will be. But I do know that when I have my kids, I'm going to be like: 'Those are my kids,' and I'm going to be raising them how my mum raised me.''

''She is the greatest mum in the entire world. She had me when she was 18 and raised me on her own. She's the strongest and most selfless person, so hopefully I'll do her proud. She's my angel.''
