Cue the bling! Mariah Carey is engaged to her boyfriend, James Packer, her rep confirms to Us Weekly. According to Carey's rep, the pair got engaged on Thursday, January 21, in New York City. 

The “Hero” singer and the Australian billionaire businessman, 48, have been dating under a year. The two lovebirds just got some R&R while aboard Packer’s yacht in St. Bart’s earlier this week.

The pair first stepped out together in June during a Capri getaway. “He’s wooing her,” a source told Us at the time.

This will be the third marriage for Carey, who split from estranged husband Nick Cannon in August 2014. The America’s Got Talent host filed for divorce from Carey in January 2015. 

During a recent interview with DuJour magazine, Cannon said he “highly doubts” he’ll ever marry again.

Carey and Cannon are the parents of 4-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. Prior to Cannon, Carey was married to Tommy Mottola for five years.
