Lady Gaga's close friend Tony Bennett has revealed the star would like him to sing at her wedding.

Last month, Gaga announced she and Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney are engaged.

And set to wed, it seems the couple have already begun planning their big day, booking Gaga's duet partner Tony as the entertainment for when they tie the knot.

Speaking to the New York Post's Page Six, Tony revealed Gaga has already asked him to perform at her upcoming nuptials.

"They invited me to do it, and of course, I will," he said.

The 'Born This Way' singer has formed a firm friendship with US singer Tony after the pair collaborated together on their chart-topping jazz album Cheek To Cheek.

Clearly a fan of her friend's vocals, it's no surprise then that Gaga has asked the 88-year-old to serenade her guests.

While Tony didn't reveal too much when it came to discussing Gaga's wedding, he did say he thinks the day will be nothing but "fabulous", adding: "She's marrying a very wonderful man."

On Valentine's Day, Gaga revealed Taylor had popped the question and she had happily accepted his proposal.

To announce her news, the 28-year-old took to Instagram, sharing a photo of her heart-shaped engagement ring. Now that is one pretty big diamond!

After sharing her happy news, Gaga later revealed that she didn't get her hands on her new rock straight away. In fact, her fiancé had initally proposed with a fake candy ring.

Although she didn't seem to mind too much!

Recalling the moment Taylor had got down on one knee, Lady Gaga said: "It was amazing, I was crying... From the moment I met him, my heart was with him."
