According to People Magazine, Packer popped the all-important question in New York City on Thursday night.

And, according to E! News, Packer did so with a 35-carat diamond engagement ring.

Yes, 35 carats!!!!

Packer (who is crazy, mega rich and who has been romantically linked in the past to Miranda Kerr) and Carey met a few years ago, but didn’t start dating until the summer of 2015.

They made their red carpet debut in September and took a vacation in Aspen last month along with the artist’s four-year old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.

Carey shares custody of those twins with ex-husband Nick Cannon, to whom she was married for six years.

Of Packer and Carey, an insider tells E! News the following:

"They fell head over heels in love with one another. It’s crazy how perfect they are together, they both know it and couldn’t be happier."

This will be the third marriage for both, as Carey was also the wife of music executive Tommy Mottola.

Packer, meanwhile, has three kids (Indigo Packer, 7, Jackson Packer, 5 and Emmanuelle Packer, 3) with ex-wife Erica Baxter.

We send our best wishes to the couple and hope Carey was willing to change her sex schedule in order to celebrate the news.
