Cheryl Cole is planning a trip to New York to meet her boyfriend's family.

The 'Under The Sun' singer started dating backing dancer Tre Holloway earlier this year ,although they first met in 2010, and the pair are so serious about each other, Cheryl has already pencilled in a trip to see where he grew up.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Cheryl and Tre have been seeing each other for less than a year but they are already very serious about each other.

''They have been spending a lot of time together recently. He is working on her UK tour and so has been at all of the rehearsals.

''But this will be a chance for her to see the America that he grew up in.''

This comes after Cheryl asked Tre to visit her native Newcastle to meet her family in person even though he recently met her parents via internet video chat service Skype.

A source recently said: ''Cheryl and Tre are getting really serious now.

''She wants him to see where she went to school and the places she used to hang out.

''She's planned a no-frills few days to give Tre an idea of what it was like when she was young.''
