Big news for Mariah Carey. The singer announced last week that she and billionaire boyfriend James Packer are engaged, as he popped the question late last week in New York. The Australian businessman sealed the deal with a comically massive 35-carat diamond ring, according to Entertainment Tonight. Very tasteful.

And speaking of tasteful, ex-husband Nick Cannon is taking a decidedly amicable and supportive stance on the news, offering up a jokey Instagram post featuring a still from his BET comedy series “Real Husbands of Hollywood” of him unconscious in a hospital bed, Kevin Hart screaming at him, “It’s just a ring, Nick!” Joking aside, Cannon captioned the photo, “Congrats to [Carey] and James! May God bless your future union” along with the hashtags “great people” and “great couple.”
That’s just … great.
