The actor admits the pair enjoy what he considers to be a "normal" relationship.

Lady Gaga's boyfriend Taylor Kinney has opened up on the couple's relationship and declared himself a "lucky" man.

The 'Bad Romance' singer has been dating the Chicago Fire TV star since they met on the set of the singer's 'You & I' video.

Speaking to The Today show, he was asked about how strange it was to date someone such as the US singer.

"I don’t know, because I don't have that outside view. It's normal, if you will, in that respect," he declared. "I'm a happy guy. I'm a lucky guy."

The star also revealed that he was overwhelmed at the support his girlfriend has shown towards his new show.

"I was surprised. I think she's proud of, you know, a girlfriend being proud of her boyfriend," he said. "She's been to the set a couple of times." 

Taylor also admitted he sometimes finds it difficult coping with the long spells of separation when Gaga is on tour.

"She hasn't said anything, but she has a spaceship and she can get from A to B pretty quickly," he said. 

Gaga, who has come under some criticism for her recent weight gain on her 'Born This Way Ball' tour recently posted a message on her LittleMonsters.com site to reveal how Taylor prefers her curvier.
