Congratulations are in order for Mariah Carey, who’s engaged to her Australian billionaire boyfriend, casino mogul James Packer, whom she met in 2014.

Her representative in New York, Chris Chambers, confirmed the news.

People,US Weekly, and E! were among those shouting about it late Thursday, apparently only minutes after Packer proposed to Carey, 45, in New York on Thursday.

Packer, 48, is the son of the late Aussie media mogul Kerry Packer and the co-chairman of Melco Crown Entertainment, which develops, owns and operates casinos in Asia. Packer is listed as Australia’s fourth-richest man, worth $3.8 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

The Daily Mail published paparazzi pictures of what Vogue reported is a whopping 35-carat diamond-and-platinum ring on her finger from Packer — bigger than even the 33-carat Krupp Diamond colossus that Elizabeth Taylor got from Richard Burton in 1968.

The design and construction took two weeks and an “army of craftsman” that included measurement specialists and an expert well versed in the handling of such a large stone, according to the ring’s designer, Carey’s friend and jeweler, Wilfredo Rosado, in an interview with Vogue.

“I took the standards super-high, and I wanted to create a ring that could not be measured up to,” Rosado said.

So far, Carey has not posted about her engagement on her social media.

But there is no doubt that Carey and Packer have been an item for more than a year, although they haven’t been seen in public that much.
