Mariah Carey and James Packer

More than a year after divorcing Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey is set to walk down the aisle with new fiance, billionaire James Packer.

The couple are engaged, after a proposal in New York City on Thursday evening (Jan. 21), reports People.

Carey, 45, and Packer, 48, met at the Hercules premiere in July 2014.

"He's just an incredible guy. He really is a good person, and that's hard to find," Carey previously told Access Hollywood. "I think anybody that's a friend of his would say the same thing, if not more, so I can't say enough nice things about him. He's just a spectacular guy."

The marriage will be the third for both Packer and Carey, who was previously married to Nick Cannon and Tommy Mottola. Packer has three young children with his ex-wife Erica Baxter, while Carey has 4-year-old twins with Cannon.
