“He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!”
That’s how Lady Gaga chose to announced her engagement to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney.
The couple celebrated with family at Gaga’s family-owned restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, in Manhattan, New York, but not before Gaga shared her big news with her 5.5 million Instagram followers.
Gaga, 28, met Kinney, 33, in 2011 on the set of her “You & I” music video, in which Kinney played her love interest.
They started dating a few months later before splitting, briefly, in May 2012. However, the couple reunited and, well, are now on their way up the aisle!
In December last year, Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, told US radio host Howard Stern that she knew Kinney was The One.
“He is the right guy,” she said. “How do we know? It’s this feeling…”
She also gave listeners a clue as to how she plans to spend her wedding day, saying “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!”
