Brandon Maxwell loves seeing his friend Lady Gaga in love.

On Thursday, the fashion designer weighed in on the "Stupid Love" singer's budding romance with Michael Polansky during his visit to Watch What Happens Live

"If any of my friends are happy, I'm happy for them," he told host Andy Cohen. "I, like, in general, don't talk about my friend's relationships. I'm always happy to see everybody in love and she is livin' life."

Gaga and Michael sparked dating rumors over the holidays, when the A Star Is Born actress was spotted kissing a mystery man at a New Year's Eve celebration. Further fueling speculation, the CEO joined in Miami ahead of her AT&T TV Super Saturday Night show and packed on the PDA as they soaked up the sun together. Then, Gaga made their relationship Instagram official with a photograph of the two from their trip, where they appeared to be very much a couple.

Lady Gaga's Romantic History

"She's really into him!" a source shared with E! News, noting that Gaga and Michael "are opposites of each other, which all-around is a good thing for her." According to the insider, the "Shallow" singer isn't the only one catching feelings. The source added, "He definitely cares a lot about Gaga."

Referencing her new single "Stupid Love," Gaga proved that their romance is going strong with a selfie she posted in March. She captioned the adorable pic, "I've got a STUPID love."

While sitting down with Andy, Brandon also reminisced about working to create her iconic 2019 Met Gala look. For the memorable ensemble, the Grammy winner put on a show as she made her way up the MET stairs, successfully pulling off four costume changes as she approached the entrance.

Curious to know how the duo came up with the concept, Andy asked the designer about it in a rapid-fire round of "Do Tell, Brandon Maxwell!"

Brandon simply answered, "We were sitting in the pool together on vacation, decided to go together."

During the game, Brandon also admitted to getting starstruck while meeting Celine Dion. "I literally…" he said, getting flustered over the moment. As for what he wished he would have said to the "My Heart Will Go On" singer, Brandon said, "Like, just the basics, like: ‘Hello. My name is…Thank you. Lovely to see you.' I just went [blank]."
