Lady Gaga's boyfriend Taylor Kinney may like it enough to put a ring on it. Word is that Kinney, her 'You & I' co-star and ex-'Vampire Diaries' cast member, went ring shopping in Chicago. Does that mean that this pair is getting serious enough to make it official?

According to Hollywood Life, they are. The Mother Monster's man was supposedly looking at promise rings.

“Taylor is shopping for a promise ring,” a source claimed. “They both have been in Chicago for the past week, staying at a swanky hotel downtown. Taylor is filming a movie called 'Chicago Fire.' He went to an upscale jewelry store on Michigan Avenue asking about rings. He said something about a promise ring.”

We'd like to point out that the source is erroneous about Kinney's work. He is filming a pilot for an NBC series about firefighters called 'Chicago Fire.' So that makes us wonder if said source got it all wrong about his search for a ring for his lady love.

We also have to wonder -- would he really make that comment out loud and spark rumors about his relationship with one of the most famous women on the planet? Gaga recently told Oprah she is happy but would not elaborate further about her romantic life. We doubt her BF would disrespect her wishes to keep their relationship private.

Gaga and her man were also spotted dining at Frontera Grill on March 20. A witness said, "They looked like they were so totally in love, holding hands and laughing."

We're happy if Gaga is happy. She is about to head out on tour again soon, so she is probably spending as much time with Kinney as possible before she has to jet and get back to work.
