Lady Gaga engaged to longtime love Taylor Kinney

It was an extra-special Valentine’s Day for pop icon Lady Gaga! Her longtime love, Taylor Kinney, chose the most romantic day of the year to pop the question with a dazzling ring before kicking off an engagement celebration with family at Gaga’s father’s New York restaurant.

He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!

Though her beaming smile said it all, a coy Gaga stepped out in a purple fur coat in the Big Apple that was just loud enough to distract from the fact that she was covering her ring finger!

She later posted a snap of the ring – a stunning diamond-encrusted heart-shaped ring – on Instagram, captioning the snap: “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!”

The 28-year-old and her beau first met in 2011 on the set of Gaga’s music video You & I but they did not start dating until several months later.

Taylor and Gaga split briefly in 2012 but were soon back together again. Although they rarely make public appearances together, in a recent interview with radio DJ Howard Stern, Gaga couldn’t stop gushing about how perfect she thought Taylor was.

“He is the right guy,” she told Howard. “How do we know? It’s this feeling…”

She also discussed what her wedding may be like, adding: “If I get married, I’ll be hanging out in a pickup truck at a David’s Bridal while my stylist is screaming at me.”

In 2014 Taylor opened up on life with Gaga, telling E! News: “I’m reserved, she’s not. For whatever reason, it works. It works and that’s that.”

The Chicago Fire actor also admitted he was ready for children: “I do want to give mom grandchildren, of course. I think I’d be a good dad, it would be a pleasure. I’d love it – and I’m in my 30s now.”
