Mariah Carey stopped by Live! with Kelly on Monday to spill the beans about her forthcoming wedding plans with billionaire fiancé James Packer. The songstress left the audience and Kelly Ripa breathless when she showed off her enormous diamond engagement ring. The 45-year-old Stratford-born talk show host posted a video to her Instagram showing just how lavish Mariah’s ring truly is.
The “Don’t Forget About Us” singer’s finger candy contains a whopping 35 carats. Can you imagine what the price tag looked like? Then again, she’s engaged to the fourth richest man in Australia and her taste in jewelry has always been enviable. Kelly could not stop gushing over it!
Although the ring is huge, it doesn’t mean the ceremony will be. The 46-year-old pop diva and mother of twins told Kelly she’s still working out some final details for the wedding, but wouldn’t get into specifics.
“I can’t really talk about them right now because everything is still being figured out,” Mariah told Kelly. “I never said it was gonna be a big wedding.”
Mariah and James got engaged in New York City in January, not long after making their relationship public in September.
