Mariah Carey has recently confirmed her engagement to billionaire James Packer at the 2016 G’Day Los Angeles Gala. She showed off her 35-carat emerald cut diamond on the red carpet. She told E! News jokingly, “It’s so heavy I can’t lift my arm up!”
“No…It’s a nice chunk.”
She described the proposal as “very romantic. He’s an exceptional person… it gets more romantic by the day, so it’s very sweet.” Packer proposed to Carey in New York.
The couple has been dating for just under a year, “If everything works out, it will be somewhat soon.” She laughed, adding, “I don’t mean if everything works out in that way, I mean there’s a lot that goes into it.”
“Well, how much speculation can there have been? It’s only been a week,”
“I am very excited about the dress, but I don’t want to talk about it yet, as I have to have my first fitting.
“But,” she added, “we are not doing a big wedding because he did two big weddings, and it’s kind of like, ‘I’ve done a big wedding [too]’… We would rather make it beautiful but humble.”
