Lady Gaga has been lost in Michael Polansky's brown eyes since 2019, and it appears their relationship only gets stronger and more adorable with time. Polansky is not just a summerboy, and their relationship is certainly no bad romance, but rather the real deal.

What seemed like an unlikely pairing—a tech entrepreneur and a global pop star—has made for a sweet, fairytale romance. Although they try their best to keep things private, the pair can't help but gush about one another, even if it's just to a friend. A source told Entertainment Tonight in August 2021, Polansky "loves Lady Gaga, but he’s in love with Stefani,” referring to the pop mogul by her real name, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. The source continued, “He loves the theatrics and her artistry, but he is very happy being out of the spotlight and letting her shine...Michael is her North Star."

Gaga's beau is a big man in tech. Polansky serves as the Executive Director of the Parker Foundation, an organization that supports life sciences, global public health, civic engagement, and the arts. He co-founded the organization in 2015 with Sean Parker, co-founder of Napster and Facebook. The entrepreneur also co-founded and sits on the board of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, which aims to turn all cancers into curable diseases. He graduated from Harvard University in 2006 with a degree in applied mathematics and computer science, per his LinkedIn.

All About Lady Gaga and Michael Polansky's Relationship

They Started Dating in 2019

While it is unclear how the pair first met, they made waves after they were captured kissing at a 2020 New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas. A source revealed to E!News on February 1, 2020, that they had been seeing each other since before the holiday season and the singer was "crazy about him."

The source continued, “They’ve been out and about in Los Angeles and spending a lot of time at her house. She’s taking him everywhere she goes, and they don’t want to be [apart].”

Two days later, the "Just Dance" hitmaker hard launched their relationship on Instagram with a PDA-filled photo. In the snap, Polansky gazes at Gaga lovingly while wrapping his arms around her, as she sits on his lap. "We had so much fun in Miami. Love to all my little monsters and fans, you’re the best! ❤️" she wrote in the caption. While in Florida, they enjoyed Super Bowl LIV.

They Rarely Make Public Appearances

Gaga made it clear just how smitten she is with the businessman, especially in the beginning of their coupling. The pop star took to Instagram with several posts that showcased their love, including a pouty selfie of them together on Valentine's Day. "Happy Valentine’s Day!! 'Babe, do I have lipstick all-over me?'😂#valentines ❤️💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💕🧚‍♀️happy v-day to all my monsters!!! I love you!!! ❤️😘🎈" Months later, in January 2021, she shared a photo of them kissing through their Covid masks.

While she still surprises her 56 million followers with couple pics every now and again, the pair tend to keep things low-key. However, ever the supportive boyfriend, Polansky has stepped out to support his lady at several events including her national anthem performance at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, the 2022 BAFTAS (where Rebel Wilson jokingly handed him a gold bra for "Best Plus One"), and the 2022 Grammy Awards. The two also enjoyed a rare PDA-filled date night at a Saturday Night Live after-party in October 2023.

Most recently, they attended Super Bowl LVIII on February 11, 2024, looking cuddly and spirited in 49ers gear.

Fans Have Speculated Certain Songs Are About Him

Fans speculate Polansky was the muse behind Gaga's tune "Stupid Love," a catchy track that chronicles how it feels to be in a happy relationship, released the same month they went public. And for good reason. Just a few days after the drop, she posted a selfie of herself and Polansky looking so loved up with the caption, "I’ve got a STUPID love💕."

They're a Philanthropic Couple

The two lovers seem to have huge hearts, and not just for each other. One bonding point between the two appears to be philanthropy. As early as one month after they went public, Gaga and Polansky collaborated on her benefit broadcast One World: Together at Home, which helped frontline workers fighting Covid.

Their Plans for the Future

Despite the occasional swooning and cute pap pics, Lady Gaga and Polansky have kept their relationship pretty close to their chests, especially when it comes to marriage. However, wedding speculation reached a peak in April 2024 when the House of Gucci star was spotted with a large oval diamond ring on that finger.

Although nothing has been confirmed, it seems like he could be the one—something Lady Gaga seemed to realize early on in their relationship. While appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show to discuss mental health and her therapy app Braver, she gushed about her man, saying, “With Born This Way Foundation, my mother, Cynthia Germanotta, and our co-founder Maya [Enista Smith], who I love so very much—they are working with my, the love of my life on something for mental health."

Their Thoughts on Kids

Either party has yet to comment on welcoming a little one together, but Lady Gaga has shared her desires to become a parent. She told InStyle in May 2020, “I will say I am very excited to have kids. I look forward to being a mom. Isn’t it incredible what we can do? We can hold a human inside and grow it. Then it comes out, and it’s our job to keep it alive.”
