Lady Gaga Changing Her Name
Lady Gaga, whose given name is Stefani Germanotta, was asked by paparazzi at LAX Tuesday if she’d be taking Kinney’s name in marriage, and the pop star replied with a simple, “Yes.”
Kinney proposed to Lady Gaga on Valentine’s Day in New York City with a heart-shaped ring that features their initials “T&S” in diamonds on the side. “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES,” Gaga wrote on Instagram. Posting another close-up picture of the rock, she wrote, referring to the initials, “He always called me by my birth name. Since our very first date. I’m such a happy bride-to-be! I can’t stop smiling!!”
Prior to getting engaged to Kinney, Gaga had noted that he was a rarity among the men she’s dated since skyrocketing to superstardom as a pop artist.
“When you meet someone that’s not intimidated by the amazing people that are around you [or] by the love that you receive—that’s love,” the singer told Fashion magazine in 2013. “Men weren’t always happy for me. It was very challenging to watch a woman be so successful.”
