Mariah Carey has found her Dreamlover and said yes to Australian businessman James Packer’s proposal!

Insiders say James popped the question in New York at an intimate dinner with her closest friends, and presented the singer with a 35-carat diamond ring.

‘Yes, the couple were engaged tonight in New York,’ a rep confirmed.

They started dating just under a year ago with friends admitting, ‘they fell head over heels in love with one another.’ Pals continue, ‘It’s crazy how perfect they are together; they both know it and couldn’t be happier.’

Mariah was in Australia over New Year’s Eve to perform at James’ Casino in Melbourne, and she couldn’t hold back from gushing about her man.

‘We first met in Aspen [Colorado] a couple of years ago,’ the 45-year-old singer said. ‘We were at the Hercules premiere. We were talking and laughing, and people were getting mad at us and stuff like that. So we hit it off.’

And James, 48, loves to point out how successful his lady is.

‘There’s only one person, according to Billboard, who has written and sung more number one solo hits than anyone in history,’ he smiles.

Aww, congrats!
