Taylor Kinney - Taylor Kinney is a 'lucky guy' to be with Lady Gaga
Taylor Kinney has revealed he fell in love with Lady Gaga because she reminds him of his mother and he admits he feels like a ''lucky guy'' to have her in his life.
The 'Chicago Fire' actor was instantly attracted to the eccentric pop superstar - who he met on the set of her video 'You and I' in July 2011 - because he likes strong women like his mum Pam, a dental hygienist who raised him and his three brothers on her own in Pennsylvania.
Taylor said: ''I look up to a strong woman, maybe that's why I fell for Gaga. She works incredibly hard and is very strong and inspirational like my mom, with a great work ethic.''
The 31-year-old hunk has been in a relationship with Gaga, 26, since September 2011 and he admits he has started to think about having children with the 'Born This Way' singer and he feels a ''lucky guy'' to have met her.
He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: ''I do want to give mom grandchildren, of course. I think I'd be a good dad, it would be a pleasure. I'd love it - and I'm in my 30s now.
''My mom wants me to get married, and have children of course. She's met Gaga, we've been dating a while, we're in a committed relationship and I'm really happy in my relationship. I'm a very lucky guy.
''As far as having more of a domestic life and settling down into my relationship we have to see what happens.''
Taylor - who 'marries' Gaga at the conclusion of the 'You and I' promo - insists there are difficulties to overcome dating a global music icon, with the main one being having to maintain a long-distance relationship when she is on tour.
The actor - who is based in Chicago for work - admitted: ''I use all the money I make on flights to see the people I love.
''If I spent it on fancy cars, homes and material stuff I wouldn't be able to do that. I have the freedom to see the people I care about - my girlfriend and my family. Gaga and I rely on space ships, very fast transport, to see each other.''
