Congratulations to Lady Gaga (32) over her engagement to talent manager Christian Carino (49). We found out accidentally when Lady Gaga was giving a speech at Elle magazine’s 25th annual “Women in Hollywood” event and just by chance (or mistake or on purpose?) referred to Carino as “My fiancé, Christian.”
Who is he?
For starters, Carino is Lady Gaga’s agent, and some say he’s hot. Nah… he’s ok.
In the past, he’s represented other stars like Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell, Jennifer Lopez, and others. He was also married before. His ex is news anchor Brooke Baldwin. They were married for 18 years and divorced in 2015. They have two daughters, Isabella and Lola.
Gaga and Carino were first spotted together at a Grammy’s afterparty and then at a Kings of Leon concert (they have good taste). But when Lady Gaga performed at the Super Bowl, they were seen kissing and hugging quite a lot. It is rumored that Carino even asked Gaga’s dad, Joe Germanotta, for her hand before they got engaged.
Carino posted on Instagram that he has a tattoo of Lady Gaga on his arm, from the days she had pigtails for a photoshoot. It could also be Harley Quinn.
Until they do tie the know formally, you can see how much they’re in love by checking out their Instagram accounts. It’s all mushy and cute and full of puppy love.
Lady Gaga has announced her engagement to agent Christian Carino in October 2018, but for some reason, the announcement came in late. Several months late to be exact. Her ring has been seen on her finger back in January 2018, at the Grammy Awards.
Like many other celebrities who were given amazing engagement rings, Gaga’s definitely takes a top place up there.
The price of love
The ring is sporting quite a large pink sapphire and diamonds around it. After several experts examined the pictures, they said the pink sapphire could be anywhere between 6 and 7 carats and the diamond halo around 3-4 carats. The cost of this stunning ring should be somewhere around $400,000.
Andrew Brown, President of WP Diamonds, looked at several pictures of the ring and estimated the ring for E!News “This is likely a high quality, no heat (treatment), pink sapphire. It looks like it may be a Padparadscha sapphire, in which case this ring would easily retail between $300,000 and $400,000.”
We know what Padparadscha means (NOT), but for the ones who don’t, Padparadscha is one of the rarest sapphires on the planet. The oval shape resembles the royal ring Kate Middleton’s has. Lady Gaga has not said who the jeweler was.
These two show lots of PDA and act just like two college kids in love. In September, Gaga said, “The best part about being in love with someone is having them there to catch you if you fall.”
Before Carino, Gaga was engaged to actor Taylor Kinney. Sparks flew when the two were working on the music video for Gaga’s “You and I.” After five years together, they split in July 2016.
