It looks like congratulations are in order for Mariah Carey, as she is reportedly engaged to new boyfriend James Packer.

The BBC claim that the singer is set to wed the billionaire, which will make it her third marriage.

According to E! Online, James got down on bended knee in New York on Thursday (22 January) night, presenting Mariah with “what can only be described as the most breathtaking engagement ring”.

TMZ also claimed that he had invited some of her nearest and dearest along “so he could get down on one knee and propose in front of the most special people in her life”.

The pair went public with their relationship last June, when they were seen holidaying in Italy.

Mariah announced her split from second husband Nick Cannon in 2014, with whom she has two children - twins Monroe and Moroccan.

She was previously married to Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1997.

Media mogul James is Australia's fourth-richest person, having inherited a media empire from his father Kerry Packer.

He has been married twice before - to TV presenter Jodhi Meares from 1999 to 2002, and singer Erica Baxter from 2007 to 2013.
