It seems Mariah Carey has moved on from her failed marriage with Nick Cannon. She has effectively done that with the announcement of her engagement to James Packer.
The Australian billionaire asked the singer to be his wife during a private dinner in New York on Thursday (21Jan16), which was also attended by her closest friends.
“The happy couple got engaged tonight,” her representative confirmed.
According to TMZ the proposal took place at restaurant Eleven Madison Park, with Packer getting down on one knee in front of everyone he’d invited to the venue. The outlet has a photograph of the happy couple leaving the establishment and a giant engagement ring is seen on Carey’s finger.
Mariah Carey and her fiancé are no strangers to the marriage world as they have both walked down the aisle with other partners before – Carey doing it two times while Packer once.
Mariah is on cloud nine about her future husband as she publicly praised him, chatting about him being her dream man just two months after they got together.
“He’s just an incredible guy. He really is a good person, and that’s hard to find,” she said.
“I think anybody that’s a friend of his would say the same thing, if not more, so I can’t say enough nice things about him. He’s just a spectacular guy.”
Well they do say that the third time’s the charm, right?
