Lady Gaga continues to receive rave reviews for her role in A Star is Born.
But the singer took a moment on Monday and acknowledged the special role someone else is playing in her life right now.]
That is, she confirmed that she's engaged to Christian Carino.
This is not a shocking piece of news to anyone who reads The Hollywood Gossip.
We wrote about Gaga's plans to marry Carino back in November of 2017.
However, the artist is famously private and had not said a word about this relationship until she spoke this week at Elle‘s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles.
The topic of Gaga's speech was a very serious one.
She opened up to the crowd about having been sexually assaulted in the past, saying on stage:
"What does it really mean to be a woman in Hollywood? We are not just objects to entertain the world. We are not simply images to bring smiles or grimaces to people's faces.
"We are not members of a giant beauty pageant meant to be pit against one another for the pleasure of the public. We women in Hollywood, we are voices."
"As a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back.
"Today I wear the pants."
While this message is vitally important, it's almost being overshadowed in the celebrity gossip world by the fact that Gaga also referenced talent agent Christian Carino as her "fiance" at one point.
The two started dating in February of last year and, as far as we know, got engaged about nine months later.
Carino was on hand to support Gaga ahead of her Super Bowl LI halftime performance in Houston in 2017, where the couple was photographed cuddling on the field.
But they have mostly kept a very low profile throughout their romance.
