Cape Town – Mariah Carey and James Packer are reportedly engaged.

As expected the 45-year-old’s engagement is said to be a master piece weighing in at 35 carats.

It comes as no surprise that the couple are set to tie the knot. Their romance started in June last year and they have been inseparable since.
