It seems congratulations are officially in order, because Lady Gaga is engaged to Christian Carino, and she made the big announcement in the coolest, most casual way.
Gaga has kept her relationship with Carino, a talent agent at the Creative Artists Agency, relatively private ever since they reportedly began dating in January 2017, and even though rumors have swirled about their engagement for some time, Gaga only just confirmed the news. The singer called Carino her “fiancé, Christian” in an acceptance speech at Elle‘s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration in Los Angeles on Monday, October 15th.
Gaga was on hand to accept the Women in Hollywood award, which celebrates the achievement of women in the entertainment industry each year. She gave a powerful speech, discussing the importance of mental health and the bravery of sexual assault survivors. And in her speech, she took a moment to thank the most important people in her life, including Carino.
Carino was in the audience watching his lady love accept her award, and the couple posed together for photos. Though Gaga kept her hands in her pocket on the red carpet, she provided a glimpse of her engagement ring while on stage. It’s not even the first time her sparkler has been hidden in plain sight: Gaga’s been sporting the massive pink diamond since last November, even wearing it at public events, like at the 2018 Grammys and during her appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Here it is closer up.
The singer has earned rave reviews for her first big-screen role, and she’s also gearing up for her Las Vegas residency, which begins at the end of this year. The year 2018 has been massive for Mother Monster, and we’re wishing her and her fiancé nothing but happiness during such an exciting time.
