This looks official, Little Monsters! After that exciting tweet on Christmas day and the speechless response to an interviewer’s question at the Grammys, we can finally say that Lady Gaga is engaged to boyfriend Taylor Kinney following a report by the editor of Times-Herald Record.
In the article, Times Herald-Record Executive Editor Barry Lewis recounts his surprise when overhearing the good news during his Valentine’s Day dinner at Joanne Trattoria, the restaurant owned by LG’s father Joe Germanotta,
“I was there when she showed off the ring,” Lewis said. “I heard the singer say ‘it was time’ as she flashed the ring around. Family members said the pair had been going out for about four years.”
Lewis and wife Bonnie were eating dinner when Mr. Germanotta toasted the happy couple who were accompanied by two body guards. Shortly after, Gaga and Taylor — most recognized for his role on NBC’s Chicago Fire — made their way to leave the restaurant.
“Bonnie and I both said congratulations to Gaga as she passed,” Lewis said. “She said ‘Thank you.’ We offered the same wishes to Kinney, who rubbed Bonnie’s back and shook my hand as he exited.”
The couple met back in summer of 2011 when filming Gaga’s music video for “Yoü and I,” a song she wrote about off-on boyfriend Lüc Carl who she left after filming the video in his hometown. Click here to see the video.
Nearly four years later, Little Monsters have never seen the international pop star as happy as she’s been lately between her time with Taylor and her tour with jazz legend Tony Bennett. Leave a comment with your best wishes for the happy couple. Comments on this post will likely be included in a future POPULOVE media release.
UPDATE: Gaga posted a photo of the ring on Instagram
