Joanne singer Lady Gaga and 48-year-old Christian Carino have been dating for one year, but at the end of last year they ignited reports they are set to wed.
After the pop star took to the stage at The Grammys on Sunday night, she was snapped backstage locking lips with her beau.
The pair were caught in a passionate embrace as Carino congratulated Lady Gaga – real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – for her emotional performance.
Ahead of her performance, Lady Gaga shared a heartfelt tribute to her aunt Joanne – the sister of the pop star’s father passed away from Lupus aged 19.
She shared a statement on Twitter, reading: “I have carried a deep grief in my heart over my family’s tragedy. The loss of Joanne affected my father so deeply that it affected me.
“When he cried, I cried. When he was angry, I was angry. When he hurt, I hurt. Today I transform this grief to hope and healing.

“After ten years with you I still get nervous before the Grammys, but I know I have an angel with me. #Joanne.”
She wrote alongside the uploads: “A message from me on the day of #TheGrammys with a picture of me and @MarkRonson writing #Joanne. I love you little monsters.”

The Million Reasons hitmaker is rumoured to be engaged, after her 48-year-old beau apparently proposed over the summer last year, one year after she broke off her engagement to actor Taylor Kinney.
It’s believed Lady Gaga didn’t want to formally announce the engagement because she was battling fibromyalgia.
According to Us Weekly, Christian asked the singer’s father for his permission to marry her.
