We'll admit—we absolutely adore Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney. 

The Chicago Fire star popped the question to his longtime love on Valentine's Day after about three years of dating, presenting the Mother Monster with a gorgeous heart-shaped diamond engagement ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz. 

And while Gaga has yet to dish too many details when it comes to the lovebirds' I-dos (with the exception of the fact that she asked Tony Bennett to sing!), the singer was apparently feeling rather chatty when she arrived at LAX airport on Tuesday wearing an all-white ensemble and retro Fendi shades. 

Asked by paparazzi if she plans to take Kinney's last name, the 29-year-old "Bad Romance" beauty replied "yes" with a smile and nod

Hmm...Stefani Joanne Angelina Kinney: we like the sound of that (Gaga's birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta). 

Following the news of their engagement, the singer took to Twitter to reveal her "favorite part" of the ring: their initials T and S, written in white diamonds on the band. 


"He always called me by my birth name. Since our very first date," the American Horror Story: Hotel star wrote. "I'm such a happy bride-to-be! I can't stop smiling!!"

Likewise, Kinney has also gushed over his fiancée, and in a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune magazine, the actor reveals it wasn't a difficult decision to ask Gaga to be his wife.

"I just knew. It wasn't a light bulb going off, it was in Manhattan," he said. "It was snowing, it was beautiful."

The pop star and her 33-year-old beau met on the set of her 2011 music video "Yoü And I" and later started dating. 


Neither Gaga nor Kinney has revealed a wedding date. 

"When you meet someone that's not intimidated by the amazing people that are around you [or] by the love that you receive—that's love," the hitmaker told Fashion magazine in 2013. "Men weren't always happy for me. It was very challenging to watch a woman be so successful."
