Nick Cannon has a sense of humor about his estranged wife Mariah Carey getting engaged to James Packer.

As Gossip Cop reported, Packer proposed to Carey at a private dinner with friends and family in New York City on Friday after less than a year of dating. The superstar is now flashing what’s reportedly a 35-carat diamond ring worth millions of dollars. That’s led to some funny memes on social media, one of which Cannon himself reposted on Instagram early Saturday morning.

In the photo, Cannon is lying in a hospital bed as Kevin Hart tells him, “It’s just a ring Nick…” The picture is actually a screengrab from their show, “Real Husbands of Hollywood” (see below). Cannon captioned the snapshot, “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS!”

He added more seriously, “#AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.” Carey hasn’t commented yet on his ex’s well-wishes, nor has she revealed any wedding plans. As Gossip Cop has noted, she and Cannon are still legally wed and in the process of settling their divorce, so she won’t actually be walking down the aisle anytime soon.

Carey and Cannon wed in 2008, and he filed for divorce in December of 2014. They are co-parenting their 4-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, and have been spending holidays together as a family. The former couple is pictured above in early 2014.
