According to E! News, Packer, 48, proposed with a 35-carat diamond ring on Thursday in New York City. The wedding date has yet to be revealed.
The newly-engaged couple has not been deviou by rumors. Last year in November reports claimed that they have moved in together but Carey, 45, denied the speculation in an interview with “Extra‘s” AJ Calloway.
“Oh, my God, I was staying at his house. He wasn’t there. He has houses at, like, a lot of different houses… okay? I’m sorry. I can’t help it. The man owns some real estate. He wasn’t there,” the Grammy Awards winner said.
Carey also talked about how she and Packer met, during an interview with Steve Harvey.
“We first met in Aspen,” she said. “We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit it off.”
