Mariah Carey and James Packer are engaged

Congratulations are in order for for the newly engaged James Packer and Mariah Carey.

The Daily Mail has confirmed that Aussie billionaire, James Packer has found future wife number 3 in the pop singer after revealing the pair are in fact engaged!

“Yes, the couple were engaged tonight in New York,” a representative for the duo confirmed.

E! News revealed that James “popped the big question in her hometown tonight, and he presented her with what can only be described as the most breathtaking engagement ring.”

According to sources close to the duo, Mariah’s new bling is a whopping 35 carats and there is no official wedding date set, yet.

While there’s no official word on the details of the special moment, TMZ reported that James organised a private dinner at Eleven Madison Park in New York with a group of Mariah’s closest friends so the special moment could take place “in front of the most special people in her life.”

Mariah was recently spotted wearing a very telling ring!

“We first met in Aspen [Colorado]. We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing, and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit it off,” the mother-of-two said of their first meeting.

The ‘Heartbreaker’ hitmaker played coy when she showed off another ring given to her by James.

“Oh, this old thing?” she said with a sly grin. “This is a Van Cleef [& Arpels] piece that my new beau got for me recently.”

She described the gift as a “very, very big surprise” that was “really nice” of James.

Mariah was previously married to actor Nick Cannon, with whom she shares 4-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan Carey, while James was married to Erica Packer.

This will be the third marriage for both James and Mariah… perhaps third time’s a charm?
