Mariah Carey and her Australian billionaire businessman boyfriend James Packer are engaged.

Mariah’s future hubby popped the big question in her hometown Thursday, and he presented her with  breathtaking 35 carats diamond engagement ring. No wedding date has been set just yet.

The couple has been friends since 2014, but their love affair began just under a year ago and have been inseparable ever since.

Next month, Mariah will start the third leg of her sell out Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace, before embarking on a world tour. James is expected to join her for most of her dates as well as continue working on his philanthropy work (he is currently on track to donate $200 million to charities in just 10 years).

This will be the third marriage for both. Mariah is mom to 4-year-old twins, son Moroccan Cannon and daughter Monroe Cannon, with Nick Canon, while James has three children: Indigo Packer, 7, Jackson Packer, 5 and Emmanuelle Packer, 3.

Congratulations to the couple!
