Lady Gaga may have exposed a lot of her private life in her Five Foot Two documentary, but there’s one reported recent detail she left out. She’s apparently engaged to Christian Carino, a CAA talent agent, are reportedly engaged—and may have been for a few months.
A source told Us Weekly that the pair “secretly got engaged” over the summer, after Carino asked Gaga’s father for his permission. Expect a long engagement, though: Because of Gaga’s health, the couple has decided to focus on her recovery before they make any wedding plans.
We first got news that Gaga and Carino were dating back in January, when they were spotted getting affectionate at a Kings of Leon concert. A month later they were spotted kissing before her Super Bowl LI halftime performance in Houston. Since then, the two have attended Tommy Hilfiger’s fashion show together. But aside from those events, they’ve kept their relationship low-key. Still, an insider confirmed to Us Weekly that they are, in fact, “actually pretty serious. They’re both really happy. It works.” When Ryan Seacrest asked Gaga to spill the beans, she kept her mouth shut. “I don’t know,” she responded. “You know I don’t talk about my love life, Ryan!”
This engagement comes over a year after her breakup with Taylor Kinney. “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates,” she wrote at the time. “Just like all couples, we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”
It seems Gaga has found a newoulmate in Carino, though.
