Please dance in an imaginary rain of confetti at whatever computer you're sitting in front of, because Mariah Carey is engaged.

The diva and her Australian businessman fiancé James Packer have been dating for less than a year, and went public in June while vacationing in Capri. (Is that not where you and your boyfriend went public, or...?)

James reportedly proposed in Mariah's hometown with a modest 35-carat diamond ring, and naturally, she said yes due to 1) diamonds being a girl's best friend, and 2) the fact that they're in love.

"They fell head over heels in love with one another, " a source tells (opens in new tab)E! News (opens in new tab). "It's crazy how perfect they are together, they both know it and couldn't be happier."

Brings a diamond-shaped tear to the eye. Congrats, Mariah!
