Drew Peterson told WBBM radio's Steve Miller that "there is harmonious bliss at the Peterson household" since his new girlfriend and her two children moved into his home.

Christina Raines, 24, has been in Peterson's Bolingbrook home for almost a week and she's still there. That's good news.  

"I've been lucky ... in cards and lucky in love," he said. "To have the love of a young, beautiful woman is a very special thing."

The former Bolingbrook police sergeant said that the Raines' children get along well with his kids, and that the two of them are planning to get married "somewhere down the road."

Miller asked if Peterson had given Raines an engagement ring. Drew said no, but that he had given her a pair of earrings for Christmas.  A jeweler friend will be consulted about an engagement ring at some point, he said.

"We'll have to see how life folds out," he said of their wedding plans.

Peterson told the interviewer that his gal pal is a little scared.

"She's not scared of me. She's scared of the media," he said.

Miller asked about problems Christina has had with her ex-boyfriend and the father of her children, "two different guys," he said.

"Yea, two different guys," Peterson said. "Both have been abusive to her in the past, and now she's with me."
