Lady Gaga is opening up about her recent engagement to actor beau Taylor Kinney for the first time, revealing he proposed to her with a candy ring.
The Chicago Fire star popped the question to his longtime girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, but before presenting her with an impressive diamond engagement ring, he jokingly pulled out a fake jewel made out of hard candy.
The pop star tells Access Hollywood, “First he gave me a Ring Pop. That was kind of amazing and I was crying, I was so excited. I said, ‘Yes!’ right away and then he pulled out the heart-shaped diamond. First it was candy. I was happy with the candy.”
The ring Kinney eventually put on Gaga’s finger was custom designed by himself and celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. It boasts a large heart-shaped diamond, along with white diamonds on the band that spell out ‘T (loves) S’, a nod to Gaga’s real name, Stefani Germanotta.
Gaga, who met Kinney when he played her love interest in the music video for her single “You and I,” adds that she always knew he was the one.
She says, “From the moment I met him, my heart was with him. The engagement makes everything better. When you’re in love and have love it makes everything better.”
