Taylor Kinney Opens Up About How He Proposed To Lady Gaga

Oh, and he gives us some shirtless pics to swoon over.

Lady Gaga first met hunky actor and model Taylor Kinney in 2011, while filming her video for “You & I.” Sparks flew, and Kinney claims it was love from the second they made eye contact. Now they're engaged, after a whirlwind four-year romance and a Valentine's Day proposal.

While he usually keeps details of his relationship private, the "Chicago Fire" star couldn't help baring both his chest and his heart in an interview with the Chicago Tribune Magazine. The smoldering black-and-white photos found him rocking several stylish outfits, and then promptly ditching them to show off his impressive abs. We're certainly not complaining.

As for what lies beneath his toned chest, the 33-year-old opened up about the moment he proposed to Lady Gaga. “I just knew. It wasn’t a lightbulb going off, it was in Manhattan,” he remembers. “It was snowing, it was beautiful.” He adds that he most certainly did get down on one knee. Gaga deserves nothing less.

No date has been set for the wedding, but if this guy is as romantic as his words imply, then Gaga should certainly be excited to finally put a ring on it.
