Kinney is a little older than Gaga, having been born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in July 1981. You might first have seen him in his recurring role as Mason Lockwood in The Vampire Diaries. He’s also played parts in bigger movies, such as Zero Dark Thirty and The Other Woman.
Since 2012, though, Kinney has played Lieutenant Kelly Severide in Chicago Fire and has made appearances in spin-off shows Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. But it was his portrayal of a mad scientist in Gaga’s “You and I” music video that saw him begin a long-lasting relationship with the singer.
And after being together for four years, Gaga and Kinney announced their engagement in 2015. She even shared a photo on Instagram that showed the heart-shaped diamond ring that the actor had proposed with. “Love is love is love,” the singer wrote in the caption.
