Mariah Carey has said yes when her Australian Billionaire beau James Packer asked her to marry him, after being together for less than a year. The award winning singer is beyond thrilled about the engagement and she has even opened up about it during her recent interviews and she even gushed about her 35-carat engagement ring that has surely made some women a bit envious.
“I’m feeling fantastic, better than ever,” a glowing Carey told us.
Describing the proposal, she said it was “very romantic. He’s an exceptional person and really…it gets more romantic by the day, so it’s very sweet.”
“I am so grateful for my life,” Carey also told E! News today. “I have love, laughter and life, and everything.
“Even if sometimes I was going through the best career moment it may have been the worst personal moment. So we all have ups and downs in our lives and that’s why my fans can relate to me. It’s a great time in my life. I have my two babies [twins Monroe and Moroccan], they are 4 1/2, but they are still babies to me and they make every day even better.”
Jewelry designer Wilfredo Rosado’s help was enlisted by Packer to design the huge, extravagant engagement ring. The designer is a long friend of Carey and is one of the most sought after jewelry in town. Some of his notable clients are Julia Roberts and Olivia Wilde.
During an interview at The Steve Harvey Show, Mariah Carey revealed how she and James Parker met. They also had their first red carpet appearance together at the premier of The Intern where they supported their friends Robert de Niro and Anne Hathaway.
Although there are rumours spreading around that the wedding is put on indefinite hold due to differences between Mariah Carey and James Packer’s Mother, there are no words yet that can verify that claim.
