It's official! Lady Gaga and Christian Carino are tying the knot, Us Weekly has confirmed. A source told the mag that the "Million Reasons" songstress, 31, and the CAA talent agent, 48, secretly got engaged over the summer.
Back in July, In Touch reported that Christian got down on one knee over Fourth of July weekend. The couple spent time with Gaga's family and "everyone got along like a house on fire," a source told us. It was then that Christian asked Joe — Gaga's father — for her hand in marriage. "Family means a lot to Gaga, and Christian knew that asking for permission before popping the question was the right thing to do." Joe was ecstatic "and he and Cynthia [Gaga's mother] happily gave their seal of approval," the source said. "Gaga’s parents are thrilled their daughter has finally found love with a mature, successful man who clearly adores her," the source added.

A year ago, the "Million Reasons" singer called off her engagement to Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney. While the two were engaged, "she talked about wanting a low-key ceremony," said an insider, "but Christian is a whole different ballgame. He works in the music industry and is a real showman, just like Gaga. He loves the glitz and the theatrics — the complete opposite of Taylor, who was shy and soft-spoken."
Of course, the nuptials won't be some backyard affair — or at least not just any backyard affair. In fact, the couple wants not one, but two weddings. "At the moment, they’re planning on getting married in Italy and Malibu," said the source. "Both Christian and Lady Gaga are proud of their Italian heritage, so they’d love to go back to their roots and are talking about eloping in an intimate ceremony in Italy." While Gaga "wants a traditional Catholic wedding for the actual vows and ceremony," they’re thinking her Malibu mansion would be the perfect venue for a "huge, no-expense-spared party," added the source.

On the guest list will be A-listers like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Bradley Cooper, and Justin Bieber — to name a few. "It'll be the celebrity wedding of the year!" The source said. Plus, her dress is going to be incredible. "Donatella Versace has offered to make Gaga a custom Versace gown, which they'll design together. Gaga has already put together a vision board of ideas: The dress will be long, white, and fitted with a dramatic veil," said the source, but it won't be too revealing.
As for the reception? "Champagne will be flowing throughout the day, and appetizers will be served before guests sit down for a five-course Italian feast," explained the source. "She’s thinking about a costume-themed party and wants to have a dressing room on hand with an array of jeweled masks, capes, feathered boas, hats, and headdresses for the guests to choose from. And don’t be surprised if there are horses and peacocks roaming around the grounds, too," the source dished. "Gaga wants this to be a party that no one will soon forget." We'll be waiting patiently for our invite!
