Awww! Taylor Kinney has spoken up about his romantic Valentine's Day proposal to Lady Gaga.
"It was in Manhattan. It was snowing - it was beautiful," the Chicago Fire actor, 33, revealed to the Chicago Tribune magazine. And what about proposal nerves? Seemingly non-existent! Taylor commented; "I just knew," he said. "It wasn't a light bulb going off."
As for the big day, the star will be seeking guidance to ensure he looks his best; "I'll have someone help me out with a tailored suit that fits well and looks nice … but I'm not out there doing that on my own."
We're sure fashion icon Lady Gaga, on the other hand, will not need much help choosing a dress.
The singer, 29, has already started experimenting with bridal fashion after she wore a dramatic Chinese wedding dress by Alexander Wang to the Met Gala earlier this week.
A profusion of fishnet, feathers and satin, we're predicting Lady G will choose something a little more sedate for her own special day.

Although Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have only been engaged for just over a week, their big day plans are well underway!
Despite a busy week, including an Oscar performance of Sound of Music and a trip to the set of Taylor's show, Chicago Fire, it seems the singer has already started on her wedmin with a venue and entertainment crossed off the list.
According to the Daily Mail, the singer will marry in her Malibu home, with friend Tony Bennett singing Cheek To Cheek at the ceremony.
The $23 million house sounds like a dream location for the nuptials. An insider revealed, "The estate is set in the hills above Malibu and is surrounded by undeveloped mountains" and added,"She calls it the "closest thing to heaven.""
Guests are rumoured to include Kelly Osbourne and Donatella Versace. The star appeared in campaigns as the face of Versace and remains close friends with Donatella, so perhaps a wedding gown by the Italian fashion brand is on the cards... Our bridal radar is primed for more updates!

Lady Gaga has shared another snap of her heart-shaped engagement ring on Instagram!
The singer added an adorable caption; "My favorite part of my engagement ring, Taylor and Lorraine designed "TS" in white diamonds on the band. He always called me by my birth name. Since our very first date. I'm such a happy bride-to-be! I can't stop smiling!!"
The designer of the impressive bling, Lorraine Schwartz, has made engagement rings for several celebrities, including Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. She told InStyle: "the stone is big and quite beautiful, and actually more expensive than some of the estimates I have read." That's certainly got us guessing!
Schwartz didn't reveal the cost, but went on to say "It's a challenge to get an excellent heart shape with perfections-the shoulders of the gem have to be totally symmetrical; Lady Gaga's is all that."
With such an instricate ring design, we can't wait to see what will surely be a show-stopping dress. The loved-up pair are sharing engagement selfies aplenty, so let's hope they Instagram the big day!

Goodbye Bad Romance, hello engagement!
Lady Gaga, 28, took to Instagram yesterday to announce her engagement to long-term boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, 33.
Lady Gaga (a.k.a. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) snapped a black and white picture of the heart-shaped engagement ring, reportedly worth $500,000, to share the news with her Instagram followers, adding 'He gave me his heart on Valentine's Day, and I said YES!'
Lady Gaga met the Chicago Fire actor whilst filming her You & I music video in 2011 and rumours of their engagement have been on our bridal radar since March 2013.
Times Herald-Record Executive Editor Barry Lewis got a unique snapshot into the songstress's engagement celebrations. The journalist was dining at Joanne Trattoria, the Upper West Side restaurant owned by Lady Gaga's parents, on Valentine's Day, when the star made an entrance…
Lewis recounted the event; "I was finishing off my plate of spaghetti and meatballs, when my wife Bonnie, enjoying a seafood special, noticed a pretty woman sporting platinum blond hair and a strapless dress." It turned out to be Gaga herself!
He continued, "I heard the singer say "it was time" as she flashed the ring around. Family members said the pair had been going out for about four years."
And how does the Gaga clan celebrate such news? "Her father, Joe Germanotta, who owns the restaurant with chef and author Art Smith, popped open a bottle of champagne to toast the couple and welcome Kinney into the family."
Congratulations to Lady Gaga and Taylor! We cannot wait to find out who will design a big day gown for the queen of outrageous fashion...
