Miley Cyrus has a new fan in Arnold Schwarzenegger. Recent reports revealed that Arnold has approved of the relationship of his model son, Patrick Schwarzenegger, with the pop star despite the subtle oppositions from his ex-wife, Maria Shriver.

Cyrus and her new beau welcomed the New Year together after spending Christmas apart. Patrick had introduced the 'Wrecking ball' star to his father who not only approved of her but also shared that he was thrilled to meet her, according to New York Daily.

The couple reportedly attended the concert of Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. An Instagram post of Cyrus showed the duo cuddling and kissing during the event. Cyrus wore a fur coat, while Patrick donned a black party hat. The two was pictured indulging in heavy PDA at the packed concert.

They were also not alone. The couple were accompanied by Arnold and his girlfriend, Heather Milligan, along with Sofia Vergara and fiancé Joe Manganiello. The group even had a meet-and-greet session with Spears and partied until the wee hours of the morning, as reported by Fox News. Despite Shriver's reported disapproval, Schwarzenegger is still going steady with the pop star. Barring the Christmas celebrations, the new couple have become inseparable since they met last year.

Getting the seal of approval from Arnold has elevated the relationship of the couple, according to Mirror. He is the second person in Patrick's family who gave his nod of approval to the relationship. Patrick's uncle, Anthony Shriver, had reportedly spent time with the couple at an Art Basel art show in Miami last year and was definitely impressed with Cyrus.

Before this whirlwind romance, Patrick reportedly had a crush on the 22-year-old pop star and was quite vocal about it. "My eye is set on Miley," declared the 21-year-old model way back in 2011 during a magazine interview.

Four years later, Cyrus and Patrick were seen indulging in a passionate kiss to ring in the New Year. They also shared their excitement and happiness by posing in large sized 2015 glasses. The picture was captioned, "Gunna be a gooood year."
