Cheers! Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney celebrated their engagement news with Gaga’s parents at their Manhattan eatery, Joanne Trattoria, on Valentine’s Day, eyewitness and Times Herald-Record executive editor Barry Lewis tells Us Weekly.
Lewis, who was dining at the restaurant when Gaga and Kinney broke their engagement news to her parents, tells Us that the couple weren’t attempting to keep anything secret and celebrated the happy news around the restaurant’s bar. "Gaga and Taylor were hanging out at the bar and Taylor looked kind of sheepish, like almost any guy would be, where he's with his future in-laws and she's showing off the ring. They were like any other couple — she's showing off the ring and the dad is popping champagne and the groom-to-be is seeming somewhat nervous by all the excitement.”
“The family seemed very, very happy and very excited,” Lewis added.
So, what about the ring?! Lady Gaga shared a snap of her massive diamond via Instagram on Monday, Feb. 16, after Us Weekly confirmed the news.
“He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!” she captioned a close-up shot of her Lorraine Schwartz heart-shaped sparkler.
The “ARTPOP” singer and Chicago Fire actor met on set of Gaga’s “You & I” music video back in 2011. Several months later, the pair began dating only to split briefly in May 2012 before rekindling their love the follow month.
Gaga’s been vocal about marrying the hunk for some time. During a recent interview with Howard Stern she gushed he’s “the right guy.” “How do we know? It’s this feeling,” she added.
The couple have already established their roles at home, too. During a 2014 interview with SiriusXM’s Morning Mash-Up, Gaga admitted she dotes on Kinney at home.
“Oh yeah, he’s totally in charge. When I’m home, I’m like, shoes are off, I’m making him dinner. He has a job too and he’s really busy,” she explained. “I’m in charge all day long. The last thing I wanna do is tell him what to do. It’s not good for relationships to tell men what to do, female listeners who are out there.”
