"This is my partner Christina," he told a journalist. "We’ve been dating for a while and I felt I wanted to take her to this event. So this is the first time we kind of go out together."
When asked how long they'd been together, Bjorn said: “We have been dating for a short time.”
February 2022 saw Bjorn and his wife Lena Kallersjo, who have two children, announced their split after 41-years together.
In a joint statement, they said: “After many fine and eventful years, we have decided to divorce.
"We remain close and good friends and will continue to celebrate our grandchildren’s birthdays and other family celebrations together."
The pair famously got together not long after Bjorn famously split from ABBA's Agnetha Faltskog after meeting at a New Years' party at the house of his bandmates Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
