Carey is engaged to billionaire businessman James Packer. Mariah Carey is one happy lady! Last week, the pop diva announced her engagement to Australian billionaire James Packer, who presented her with a massive 35-carat engagement ring.

Speaking for the first time since the news was announced, Carey gushed about her fiancé to E! News on Friday and revealed her wedding plans. “I’m feeling fantastic, better than ever,” Carey said. Describing the proposal, the 45-year-old said it was “very romantic. He’s an exceptional person and really it gets more romantic by the day, so it’s very sweet.” As for her incredible 35-carat diamond engagement ring, Carey joked: “It’s so heavy I can’t lift my arm up! No. It’s a nice chunk.” When asked when she plans to walk down the aisle the songstress added: “If everything works out, it will be somewhat soon. I don’t mean if everything works out in that way, I mean there’s a lot that goes into it.” But don’t expect Carey to have a big wedding this time around: “We are not doing a big wedding because he did two big weddings, and it’s kind of like, ‘I’ve done a big wedding too’. We would rather make it beautiful but humble,” she continued.
