Two thumps up for eloping? Not so fast, Taylor Kinney!

The Chicago Fire star sat down with NBC's Meredith Vieira to go over wedding plans, including where and when the blue-eyed hunk will tie the knot with fiancé Lady Gaga. The superstar couple, who got engaged on Valentine's Day, has been dating soon after they starred together in the singer's 2011 music video for "Yoü And I."

"We don't have a date," Kinney told Vieira on Wednesday's episode of The Meredith Vieira Show. "It's kind of a logistiics thing right now. It's just timing. She's really busy with the show, I'm busy with mine." Kinney is travels to Chicago to fillm for NBC's hit show while Gaga spends a lot of time in Los Angeles for her new lead role in American Horror Story: Hotel. 

"I could go to the Little White Chapel but I think, well she's an Italian and that won't happen," he added. "She wants a nice big wedding so I'll let you know when we get a date."

But, Vieira didn't really want to wait to find out, so she asked if the nuptials will take place this year.

"Sure," Kinney said in a noncommittal tone. 

Quit playing games with our hearts, Taylor!


While the wedding date is still up in the air, Kinney is not lacking in inspiration for their honeymoon—all he has to do is watch one of Gaga's episodes on FX's his series, which debuted with a steamy foursome that leaves very little to the imagination. While Gaga seemingly had little qualms about turning up the heat on-camera, Kinney admitted to Vieira he was still a tiny bit uncomfortable.

"It was awkward. They had a really lovely premiere in Los Angeles the other week and I was sitting next to her father and we were both kind of like, ‘Wow. Good job honey.' I remember I was walking out and Ryan Murphy who created the show and directed that episode as well he's like, ‘Hey what did you think?' I don't think I said anything. I am still trying to process what the hell I just watched," Kinney recollected. 

Despite the steamy screen time, Gaga's beau remains her cheerleader. 

"I couldn't be more proud and she's excited and she's loving it," he said.
