Confirming their romance officially for the first time, she said: "Right now I'm just really in love with my girlfriend. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, 'Finally, I can feel again.'"

And the pair's relationship seemed to be going from strength to strength after Kristen's mom gave Alicia the seal of approval.

Jules said: "What's not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She's happy. She's my daughter, I'm just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices. I've met Kristen's new girlfriend, I like her. What's not to accept? She's a lovely girl.

"People are good to do whatever they like as long as they're not hurting people or breaking the law. I have gay friends, family members, I'm accepting of people, we are all free to choose who we want to love.

"I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. I accept my daughter loves women and men. It's OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers."
